Left: I became wildly obsessed with this photo this week. It’s so scandalous and perfect.
Middle: Grey on grey makes for the comfiest of outfits and I think I could live happily in a sea of charcoals, slates and ashes for the next month or 6.
Right: I found a grey hair inhabiting my ‘do quite a while back. I ran around screaming “WTF get off my noggin’ I’m 20 years old” and I thankfully haven’t spotted one since. However, now that I’ve layed eyes on this seriously pretty grey mane I’m happy to announce I’m hoping to go grey by 25! Just kidding. :) Kind of.
On another note, after watching from the sidelines while National Pink Day and National Kiss Day passed me by, I decided I needed to invest some time in finding out when these unofficial holidays were happening so I could prepare accordingly (AKA stage a celebratory photo for Instagram… Just kidding. Kind of.) I took the time to scan through the month of August and find the holidays I think are worth celebrating (no offense to Petroleum Day and Toilet Paper day.. I’m sure someone will enjoy celebrating you). Here they are:
August 1, 2014 is National Girlfriends Day! (another holiday to celebrate myself? Oh no, please, I couldn’t… >:) August 3, 2014 is National Watermelon Day! AND National Sister’s Day! August 18, 2014 is NationalCupcake Day! (I’m a Muffin girl myself, but I wouldn’t say no to a batch of these. Realistically, I’d backflip out a window for a batch of those.) August 31, 2014 is Go Topless Day!
“I’ll never know, and neither will you, of the life you don’t choose. We’ll only know that whatever that sister life was, it was important and beautiful and not ours. It was the ghost ship that didn’t carry us. There’s nothing to do but salute it from the shore.” ― Cheryl Strayed
Left: I saw this and got actual butterflies. BUTTERFLIES! Over un-inflated balloons! Who am I? I feel so inspired and giddy just thinking about decorating with my own balloons in jars. I’m imagining an all white home office with a … Continue reading →
Today I’m inspired by these disguised wonders. I haven’t felt very “me” this week and I’m really starting to miss myself. I’m making a conscious effort on this sunny morning to slip out of my slump and return to my … Continue reading →
“With writing, we have second chances.” ―Jonathan Safran Foer Left: A year ago I created my first post on what I called “dakotabee.wordpress.com“. I had read that you should always have some meat on your blog bones before unleashing it into … Continue reading →
The post is short and sweet but despite being the one that contained my 22nd birthday, this week has been anything but. I can’t wait to get on the road to Saskatchewan for a weekend of camping, surrounded by good people who keep me belly laughing.
Top Left: I came across this photo via this instagram account and can’t believe how much I love it. I’ve never been one to put too much thought into my future wedding, but if it was today- I think I’d pick this gown.
Top Right: I’d happily come home to a mint front door any day of the week. And while we’re on the topic, I picked up this minty bag the other day as a belated birthday gift for myself!
Bottom Left: I’ve found the newest craft to throw in my Things To Make pile. Except I’d design it based on Meal‘s features, naturally.
Bottom Right: This picture made me smile this morning. Looking so forward to shaking up the weekly routine and spending some quality time with nature this weekend. (It’s not you Cubicle, it’s me.)
Top Left, Top Right, Bottom Left, Bottom Right After shattering my iPhone screen at the start of the month (courtesy of a little hand talking and a lot of Twisted Tea) I had it replaced with gold glass. It’s very … Continue reading →
I had the kind of weekend I haven’t had in years. I stayed in Friday and Saturday night, I did crafts and I baked muffins, my mum and I ate pizza for dinner (twice!), I organized my bedroom, I did … Continue reading →
I haven’t felt like posting anything lately, with one big question in mind: How could I follow a post about death and self acceptance with my usual goofy chatter of cats and dresses and things that make me laugh? Today … Continue reading →
My sister and her fiancé lost a friend of theirs to cancer this week, and I wanted to share something Kira wrote in the days before her passing: Eventually we can’t keep this up anymore- my body and I. We … Continue reading →
