While browsing through Pinterest, I came across this clap dance video.  Remember it?  I had completely forgotten about it!  So good!  Oh Internet, how I love you so!

Irene Suchocki's photographs of London are stirring up some serious wanderlust in me.  Pastel buildings?  Yes please!

On a different note, who else is psyched for the London 2012 Summer Olympics?  Anyone, anyone?

Cherry baby

Cherry baby Today I went for a morning run and watched the sun rise over the hills at dawn.  Then I had breakfast and sang "Sherry" in my head (except i transposed 'sherry' for 'cherry') while I ate some cherries and visited my favorite blogs.  Today I will check things off my to-do list and go on a thrifting outing with my mom.  I hope this week has been treating you well so far! ♥

Blue + red

Friday, June 22, 2012
Blue + red Blue + red Blue + red This is the outfit I wore to my high school graduation two weeks ago.  In the end, it didn't actually matter much what I wore because my cap and gown covered everything, but I quite liked the outfit anyhow.  Also, how do you like my little owl friend?  His name is Oscar. Blue + red Blue + red outfit deets: dress and cardi are from urban outfitters, tights are hue, bike shorts are american apparel, shoes are jeffrey campbell, purse is dooney and bourke, and owl necklace is from a random boutique shop in florida that i forget the name of.

Now I don't know much about Marta Syrko (she doesn't have a bio written up as far as i can tell), but all I know is I love her work.  She puts so much emotion into each image... at first glance, these could look like paintings!

On the gram

Wednesday, June 20, 2012
How's life treating you so far this week folks?  Mine's been pretty swell.  This week, I treated myself to a few new goodies for my bedroom... namely this and this.  I've also started hanging some other pictures on my walls (yay! no more naked walls!).  My room is coming together and I am very excited.

Anywho, it's gonna be a hot one today and I'm pretty excited.  Apropos for the first day of summer?  I think so.

Here's life on the 'gram...

I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found this pretty little fashion editorial, Follow the Roses.  I'd seen a photo here and there from this series, but never knew where it came from until a few days ago.  That last shot is golden.  It needs to be a painting, don't you think? 

Anyway, the editorial is from Fine Taste Magazine, which I had also never heard of.  It looks like they have some pretty neat editorials, so you should check them out!

HAPPY FRIDAY!

The latest Syrup catalog has been a huge inspiration to me as of late.  The hair is so pretty!  I'm so happy my hair is long so that I can braid it this summer.
