June Inspiration














I am finally back on my grind of blogging and creating some new designs for my Etsy shop and I am super excited to start coming up with new ideas. I have been away for a few months due to my wedding which just happened last week! We chose to due a destination wedding in Dominican Republic which typically has less planning involved but there still were a lot of details to figure out. All of my free time was taken up with emails and shopping for the wedding but I am glad everything went great. Hopefully I will have pictures soon to post up here! In the meantime, I want to start getting inspired again so of course, I went over to Pinterest to gather up some inspiration for the month of June. Enjoy!!

The Last of the Snow







The snow looks so beautiful from afar.
I took these photos from the window of my apartment a few weeks ago when we had the last snow storm of the season. The temperatures are slowly rising now and most of the snow is gone, but there is nothing like seeing snow fall from your home while you are cozying up in a blanket. Everything looks so pristine and pure white when the snow first falls. These photos will serve me as a reminder of just how lovely snow can be.

Current Beauty Faves


Hey guys, these products are the ones I have been using non stop recently and for good reason.

** I have been curling my lashes almost every day and it is something that makes such a huge difference. This eyelash curler by Shiseido is seriously the best eyelash curler ever! With one use, your lashes will curl and stay curled throughout the whole day. I prefer not to use mascara on a daily basis and with this eyelash curler I don't need to.

** This butter gloss by Nyx Cosmetics in Tiramisu is such a pretty color. It looks really natural with just a sheen over the lips. It is definitely my go-to color for every day.

** Ok, now for my absolute favorite product so far, this concealer or "un cover-up" by RMS Beauty is by far the best concealer/cover-up/foundation I have found for my skin. I have very sensitive skin that is oily and acne-prone so I have to be careful of what I put on my face. If I use the wrong product, I will immediately break out or get small red bumps (sucks, I know). However, I put this product almost everywhere on my face and nothing, not one break-out or crazy reaction. I set this with some translucent powder and I am good to go. I use this under my eyes for daily use and also use it as a foundation for when I want to look more put together. The best thing is that the ingredients are all natural and some are even organic. I cannot say enough great things about this product! I should have probably just done a post on this product only as I am rambling on about it :)

** Lastly, this hand cream by Soap & Glory is the best for winter. This hand cream prevents my hand from getting really dry and flaky. It leaves my hands soft and as if it was summer out :)

Lately

I wanted to do a different type of "lately" post and give you an update on what I've been up to, so here we go.

Planning - A shop sale for this weekend! It is still snowing in my parts so staying warm and cozy is still a priority. Hopefully it is the last snow of the season, but I figured an end of season sale will be appropriate. Check out my shop and use promo code ENDOFWINTER15 to take 20% of all my scarves!


Watching - My fiancĂ© and I have been really into watching space and astronomy documentaries. It's crazy how much I am learning that I had no idea about, (in case you didn't know but I am a big astronomy nerd) I have also have been watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix which I mostly watch when I am knitting, it is pretty funny and reminds me a lot of The Office, one of my favorite shows.

Looking forward to - getting married this Spring! I am so excited to be marrying my boyfriend of 10 years, it is about time we tie the knot right? We are doing a destination wedding so I will definitely be sharing some photos with you soon.


Drinking - lots of green smoothies or as I like to call them, detox shakes. I mostly drink these on the weekend when I need to detoxify my body of all the heavy foods that winter makes me crave. I will most probably share a post on my green smoothies soon, I love making them!

Working on - knitting, knitting, knitting! :) I am still knitting away scarves, I find that always working on your craft keeps you motivated and helps with coming up with ideas. I am also working on new knit ideas for spring and summer which I am really looking forward to. Picking new colors and yarns for a new season is a fun part on its own.


Exploring - photography, I have always loved capturing moments and taking photos of details and places that I come across. I want to just get out there and start taking photos of things that capture my eye, random moments of times spent with my loved ones, and just anything that I find interesting along the way. Some of images will most probably make it on to this blog, it is something that I really want to incorporate here. Visual depictions of moments in my surroundings is something I would like to share on my blog.

Let me know what you guys have been up to, thanks for reading :)

A Few Words...

(via Pinterest)

Hi guys, I wanted to do a different type of post today to kind of let you know what I have been up to and to get a little bit more personal and raw on my blog.

I have so many things and ideas on my mind constantly that it is crazy and sometimes I wonder how I can keep up with myself. For me, it's a good thing though (honestly). If I wasn't thinking of ideas or coming up with projects constantly, I think I would be super bored. I am just a really indecisive person, one day I want to do this and another day I want to do that. It is a hard thing to do, to find your passion. I have been constantly struggling with this for some time now. I just want to find something that I absolutely love doing. I want to do something where I am up till late hours of the night diving away and would not even mind for a second. For me it's a matter of finding that something that I want to do, it's not about not being able to do it. I have always been a dreamer and believe that anything is possible. If you put your mind to it, it will happen.

I keep thinking about how to proceed with this blog of mine and what kind of posts I should be doing. I love blogging, it's my outlet of creativity as opposed to what I do everyday for a living. I love doing outfit of the day posts but the weather and time seem to not be by my side all the time. I keep wondering how other bloggers do it, especially if you live in a cold place, let me know yea? :-) I want to share my interests and what I am currently craving, and my outfits as well. I love putting outfits together, it's like being a stylist in the fashion world but for yourself and without the pressure of others.

I also love creating. Creating and being creative seems to be something that I always lean to. It is something that makes me feel alive. I want to put more thought and effort into my Etsy shop and sort of bring a different look to it and add more product options. It is about that time that Spring is approaching so something that is on the back of my mind recently is that I want to offer other items that are appropriate for this season. These are a few of the things that I am contemplating on working on soon. There are other different things that I would like to do, I just love so many things!

Anyway, I just wanted to vent a little bit here, thanks for reading if you got this far :) I hope you got something out of this and if you already know what you love doing or you found your passion, go for it and don't waste time. Let me know your thoughts or comments and also let me know if you have found that something that makes you feel ALIVE.

Transition Jackets

Transition Jackets

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7

Can you tell I am ready for Spring? :) Transition jackets are always helpful for me as I can wear a jacket that is lighter but can still can protect me from the chilly temperatures at night. I am loving prints so naturally I just want to wear them anytime I can. Denim jackets are also on the top of my list this season and I can see myself wearing it with almost anything. What type of jackets will you be wearing this Spring?
