Time To Retreat

I feel like after a week of being off from school, I am finally starting to relax. I have a lot more time to dedicate to my creative ventures and new job (more about that later!). It's pretty amazing how a break from the clutter of a schedule can let your mind breathe and think up new creations. Have a great Monday!

New Year Chic

The New Year always makes us think about the way we spend our time. Did we make the most of the year? What were the best memories? Who dressed the best? What needs to change? This week's roundup is a good mix of reflecting on the best of fashion in 2013 and what to look our for next year. So take a look and make the most of 2013!

Eclectic Mix

I am very much an introvert, and I get overwhelmed spending too much time with friends and family. There is something very intimate about music. Just you and a song. I have a pretty wide variety of artists I listen to from Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert to those like John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Lissie, and Ingrid Michaelson. Some of my other favorites include Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Taylor Swift. I often think of them as friends that go with me everywhere.

 I am the only person I know who still buys actual cds. I have a bunch of friends who buy trendy vinyls, but I have always had a fascination for design and physicality. I like having the actual cd to play on my stereo and I LOVE booklets. I think they are the thing that I look forward to most about getting a new cd. There is also something so electric about the anticipation while biting through the corner of plastic and trying to peel off the damn sticker strip at the top. It is so satisfying to me about seeing a long row of my jewel cases lined up on a shelf. An accomplishment of sorts. Of course, I do buy songs on iTunes, but if I intend on buying an entire album, I will find the physical copy at Target, Barnes and Noble or on Amazon. I don't know, maybe I'm a little dated, but I like what I like!

Monday Stretch

Everyone seems to get super stressed the week of Christmas. Having family over, shopping for an endless number of presents, cooking and everything in-between can be super overwhelming. So, do yourself a favor and take a deep breath, grab a cup of your favorite tea, and look at some inspiring pictures on Pinterest to calm down.
