What I'm lovin!

It's been a while, this is basically a weekly loves but titled different cause it's not just what I'm lovin the week!

My dream hair! Long, curled and pastel. So gorgeous! ~via~ pinterest

I've been teaching myself to crochet for almost a month and I'm so addicted. I can't wait to take on a beautiful project like this. ~via pinterest link to this blog~

These retro style ornaments are to die for! Perfect colors and oh so cute!

Brilliant storage!  Embroidery hoops and bags or pillow cases even! ~via~

This Etsy shop has the most beautiful jewelry like this bracelet, made of resin and real plants!

Poppytalk shared this super adorable DIY shelves, I'm in desperate need of shelves, throw some succulents in the mix and you have me all dreamy eyed!

Nicole's mustard and polka dot outfit is SO cute! I have close to zero mustard items in my wardrobe and now that I think about it, not enough polka dots!

I am not one for super expensive bags, but this Louboutin is so fucking cool, I just love it.

This poster is perfect in every way. ~via~

That's it for now. I have a lot on my mind, when I'm not busy I am feeling very lazy and antisocial. I haven't sewn anything in...well, weeks and weeks...it does bum me out, but I have been crocheting my little heart out. I made a quite successful beanie for a baby, with little bear ears, I was in such of a hurry to finish it right before the baby shower that I didn't take a picture of it. 

I feel like I can't get any sewing done until my sewing room is re-organized. It is such a mess right now, I don't have proper shelving and storage and things are organized in a messy way and I can't stand it. I also think my machine is in serious need of some maintenance  I've been putting that off because I don't even know how to go about such a thing. I wanted to have my Etsy shop open by the end of this year, but as usual I am not on time and lacking motivation. I am still always inspired and I am trying to not rush myself. I feel like I've been sewing and have been holding on to my big Etsy shop dream for ten years when in actuality it's only been a few years. I need patience and logic and time management skills. So hopefully soon.

Coming up: I received a Birchbox last month that I still haven't reviewed the items yet, so hopefully I can work on that post soon.
I plan to take photos of my crocheting adventures to share as well.

Oh yeah, my camera is on the fritz too, I think it has reached it's "shutter life". I've been ready for an upgrade but it is oh so expensive, maybe next tax return, which I always plan a new tattoo around but a new camera might be more important. See why I've become lazy and lacking motivation?! I'll get back in gear soon.



  1. That hair is sooo gorgeous! I'd so love to do fun colors in my hair someday!
