"To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness."
~Woody Allen

"I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close."
~One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

"I love how your eyes close, whenever you kiss me. And when I'm away from you, I love how you miss me. I love the way your kiss is always heavenly but darling, most of all I love how you love me. I love how your heart beats, whenever I hold you. I love how you think of me without being told to. I love the way your touch is always tenderly, but darling, most of all I love how you love me."
~Phil Spector

"There's a little truth behind every 'just kidding,' a little curiosity behind every 'just wondering,' a little knowledge behind every 'I don't know,' a little emotion behind every 'I don't care,' and a little kick of lie behind the distant eyes of someone saying 'I don't love you.'"

Photos from Le Love, an adorable little blog I just discovered via Daydream Lily. Loveology, and people's Etsy shops are where the rest are from. Gosh. Now my heart feels all warm and fuzzy after looking at all these sweet romantic photos.

I received an award (yay!) from Sam, one of my all time style icons and inspiration for those I-don't-know-what-to-wear-days.

It's certainly one of the cutest ones I've ever received. I'm going to pass this on to:

Light and Writing, a beautiful blog I just discovered and fully suggest you check out.

Here Come the Sun, another beautiful blog I just discovered.

Isabella, owner of such an adorable little blog, which has quickly become one of my daily blog stops.

Zoe and Jessica, who recently bid farewell to their old blog, Sick, and created their own separate blogs, another one of my daily blog stops.

I also have gotten tagged by Chloe to do an awesome tag she made up:

Q: Describe your personal style.
A: Layers, layers, and layers, with a girly touch. Think Free People.

Q: What are the staples in your wardrobe?
A: Hmmm...all my blazers because they look so good with no matter what you have on. Whenever I don't know what shirt to wear, I put on an ugly shirt and a blazer and the blazer hides my shirt. Oh yes.

Q: What's your signature look?
A: I don't really have a signature look because my style changes so often. I guess I wear blazers paired with skinny jeans and flats a lot because it's so comfy.

Q: What inspires you?
A: Beautiful photos and words (hence why I started this blog).

Q: Who is your fashion muse?
A: MK Olsen, Coco Rocha, Cory Kennedy (although I'd never wear anything like that-I am in awe of the fact that she actually has the guts to wear what she wears and people admire her for that)...there's more, but I just can't think of them now.

Q: Favorite purchase of all time?
A: This awesome vintage mini dress with a peter pan collar and two pockets on the sides. I bought a cotton red sash/belt-esque thing from AA and use it to tie in a bow around my peter pan collar and I've gotten lots of compliments on it.

Q: Biggest splurge?
A: A Burberry trench coat which I don't regret splurging on-I wear it all the time.

Q: What's your beauty routine?
A: Well...it depends on how much time I have to get ready. I usually just swipe on some dark blue or light brown eyeliner, a couple coats of mascara, and a few dustings of blush.

Q: What jewelry do you never take off?
A: I don't never take off any particular jewelry I own, but I do wear this silver Tiffany ring I got a couple of years ago quite often.

Q: What are you wishing for?
A: Oh gosh...I honestly don't know. Money to go shopping? I guess?

Q: What are your obsessions?
A: Long, flowy tunic tops with skinny jeans and lots of layers.

I tag...EVERYBODY!!!

To wrap up this really long post, I've been thinking of making moleskine notebooks like this...

my tired heart. by (kerry).

if only i had eight arms to hold you with. by (kerry).

my heart is in this. by (kerry).

reason #592173 by (kerry).

i need to see those eyes. by (kerry).

my moleskine is getting full! by (kerry).

...and then selling them on Etsy. I was wondering if you think anyone would buy something like this. I need your opinion: should I start making them to sell, or not?
~Photos from here.

Well...that's all for now folks. Happy Saturday!

"Occupied in observing Mr. Bingley's attentions to her sister, Elizabeth was far from suspecting that she was herself becoming an object of some interest in the eyes of his friend.
Mr. Darcy had at first scarcely allowed her to be pretty;

he had looked at her without admiration at the ball;

and when they next met, he looked at her only to criticize.

But no sooner had he made it clear to himself and his friends that she hardly had a good feature in her face, than he began to find it was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes.

To this discovery succeeded some others equally mortifying.
Though he had detected with a critical eye more than one failure of perfect symmetry in her form, he was forced to acknowledge her figure to be light and pleasing;

and in spite of his asserting that her manners were not those of the fashionable world, he was caught by their easy playfulness.

Of this she was perfectly unaware; to her he was only the man who made himself agreeable, nowhere, and who had not thought her handsome enough to dance with."

~Photos from the amazingly breathtakingly talented Eleanor Hardwick (can you believe she's only 15? I about had a heart attack when I found out! What talent amongst youth there is today!), except for the first one, which is from Wild Keiki, (but come to think of it actually looks like the bow and the same type of style on the girl touching the fence thing in Eleanor's photo, 6 photos down, so it might actually be from Eleanor, too, if that sentence made any sense at all) and the last one, which is from Eleanor's tumblr, Ghost Parties.

"I walked over to the hill where we used to go and sled.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
There were a lot of little kids there.

I watched them flying.

Doing jumps and having races.

And I thought that all those little kids are going to grow up someday.

And all of those little kids are going to do the things that we do.

And they will all kiss someone someday.

But for now, sledding is enough.

I think it would be great if sledding were always enough, but it isnt...

It's kind of like when you look at yourself in the mirror and say your name.

And it gets to a point where none of it seems real.

Well, sometimes, I can do that, but I don't need an hour in front of a mirror.

It just happens very fast, and things start to slip away.

And I just open my eyes, and I see nothing.

And then I start to breathe really hard trying to see something, but I can't.

It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it scares me."

Words from The Perks of Being a Wallflower, one of my favorite books.
Photos from where else other than weheartit.

Alas, I have been tagged and given an award by fellow blogger Lauren. This is the honesty scrap award in which you have to write 10 honest things about yourself and pass it on to at least 7 other deserving bloggers.
10 honest things about myself:

1. I am a dreamer who loves dreamy things (ha how profound was that?).
2. I never use abbreviations and other shortcuts when writing emails or texting.
3. I can spend anywhere from 10 minutes to over an hour getting ready.
4. I am guilty of taking extremely long showers.
5. I wish my hair was longer.
6. When its a really cold night, I sleep with my bathrobe on.
7. I am currently in a love affair with French Onion Soup.
8. I put vaseline on my feet and ski socks every night before I go to bed so that my feet are nice and soft (who wants cracked heels?)
9. I was a little skeptical about blogging at first, but now that people are actually reading my blog, I like it a lot.
10. I listen to my iPod while putting on my makeup or straightening my hair. It makes the time go by faster.

I'm going to tag:
The Stylish Wanderer (since she's started doing some tags now)

Hope you all had a fun and laugher-filled weekend.
