Monday Mood: So Fresh & So Clean | 3.24.14

It’s Spring (or so they tell me)! The color palette of the season is undoubtedly pastel, but can it be anything more than what we dye our Easter Eggs?

Oh. Yes.

So Fresh & So Clean | Pastel Tumblers | Linzeelu Thank You

 

Pastels are light & airy.

Celebrate Love! Happy Valentine’s Day | 2.14.14

Don’t give me no crap about hating Valentine’s Day this or Hallmark Holiday that. I don’t want to hear it. Cut that out. Single or attached, male or female, Valentine’s Day is simple: a chance to celebrate love. You don’t have to be in a relationship. You don’t have to buy all sorts of mushy-lovey-dovey junk or shell out big bucks for big blooms. You just need to celebrate the beautiful thing that is LOVE. There is someone in this world that loves you: a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a friend. There is someone in this world that you love: comrade, boo, pet, yourself. Whoever it is, whatever it is, just celebrate it! Love is a beautiful thing and too often it’s taken for granted or allowed to get comfortable. Today is the day to grab it, shake it out, and throw it a party. So just STFU if you’re one of those who thinks you need a boyfriend or a present today. All you need baby, is love.

Buuuut if you do want to grab a little sumthin-sumthin, here’s a few fun ideas (because this is a blog, not just a soapbox).

valentine's day: treat yourself

Why not show ourselves a little love, amirite??

valentine's day: spoil your best gal

Best friend or girlfriend, show your best gal a little love with something sweet or something sparkly!

valentine's day: mad about mom

Mom. auntie, grandmom or godmom, there’s a fierce female in your life who has had your back and loves you so. Throw a little love right back at her!

valentine's day: gifting a gent

And we all know a great guy that could use a little reminder of how we think he’s the bee’s knees!

So skip the presents (or not) and celebrate. Send an email or (gasp!) call someone and wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day. Love is a powerful thing. Celebrate it today!

Obsessed: The Olympics | 2.11.14

Well I think the title says it all. I love the olympics, summer & winter. I love the athleticism, the sportsmanship, the pomp & circumstance, I love it all! Every two years, I settle comfortably in my obsession and immerse myself in the games, the rules, the competitors and the host country. True story: just yesterday I wikipedia-ed how to play curling. I read every last word and I am now prepared to watch every last minute. Disgusting, I know. But I LOVE IT!!!!! I don’t expect you to share in my obsession, just enjoy my celebration of said obsession below! Go USA!
