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!
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 →
“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 →
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 →
Top: This reminds me of a scene from a horrifying kids show but somehow, I like it. Speaking of covering up your face, I wore a band-aid across my forehead last night (to cover a small problem that my fingers-of-fury … Continue reading →
Left, Middle, Top, Bottom It’s a gloomy Monday morning and my mood is very soft, quiet and gentle. It’s not typical of me but I don’t think it’s a bad thing (and it may have something to do with the … Continue reading →
Petrichor is defined as “the smell of the earth after it rains” and I know that smell very well after a rainy long weekend in Saskatoon visiting Tim. On Sunday we biked down to the river and plunked our selves … Continue reading →
Today feels like a Friday to me so I’m radiating happy vibes, minus that time it was 8am and coffee dribbled out of my mouth and all over my white dress… then I was radiating some pretty serious Tide To … Continue reading →
“Woooo-aaaaaaaahhhh!” -Bon Jovi This morning’s commute was briefly interrupted by a BEAVER making his way across the highway and it made me laugh a lot because 1) Where are you going? and 2) Bold choice walking that slow. I made … Continue reading →
