spring shoesies

I have found THE perfect spring shoes. 

Mint pastel jellies! Oh how cute and spring-appropiate are these? They bring childhood memories of carnivals, cotton candy and flower gardens. But I just LOVE how they also have a mature-vibe at the same time. PERFECTION. 

So far they are quite comfy, but hopefully they aren't the kind of shoe where you don't realize that they were crafted by satan until you've walked in them for over an hour. I think about 90% of the shoes that I've purchased in my adult life have just been SO painful. I really wish more shoes were designed with comfort AND style in mind. Someday… someday. 

I bought these at American Apparel and they were only $24.00! I actually just filmed a spring haul video (will be up tuesday or wednesday) and mentioned them in it… but I just couldn't wait to share! Also, on the note of videos… WOW. Thank you so much for all the love on my last video! Now I REALLY feel motivated to continue posting them! ^_^

(for anyone who feels confused about the photo from this post, I lifted my feet to my ceiling (which is draped with fabric) and I like to photoshop little images into the negative space… adds a little sprinkle of sugar, I feel!)

peas pass me the salt

Could you peas pass me those cute peas?

I grabbed these adorable little salt and pepper shakers on the other day, and just HAD to share. Are they not the most DARLING things you have ever seen? They sit on my kitchen counter, right next to my ice cream cone timer and my pink sugar tin. It's like… pleasantville or something. HAHAHA… but you know how I do.

Life is so great. The sun is shining. My heart is filled with love. I'm constantly laughing. And most importantly- my room is basically complete. For the first time in months, I feel as if I finally have true clarity. I've created this intoxicatingly beautiful space, and now I can actually FOCUS on getting big things done (aka, conquering the world). And before you ask, YES- I will eventually do a room tour. However, I still have a few big DIY projects to do (that I plan on filming), so I must wait until I get around to doing those. But SOON! Speaking of filming, I'm planning on recording a VIDEO for you all tomorrow! I'm thinking I will do one about all of my favorite products and little odds 'n ends. I have discovered so much gold lately, I just NEED to share these discoveries! *^_^*

"livin' with my bitches #LIVE"

Where does the time go? FOR REAL! I have seriously been running around like a craaaaazy person lately. Like I've said before, I have such a one-track mind. If I'm on a mission to do something (*cough* this freaking apartment design), I struggle to pull myself away from it. Pretty much the only thing that can physically FORCE me to momentarily move away from it, is well, PEOPLE. And lately I have really been making an effort to LIVE. To make memories. To actually pull myself from my little rainbow bubble and have some REAL fun. This photo above with my beautiful BFF, Evelina, was taken at the annual QVC pre-oscars party. We had a pretty great time, but there were so many people there, it was hard to breathe. ALTHOUGH… one of those people hogging the air was my beloved Ross Matthews. I adore himmmm. When I first spotted him, I like, fell to the ground. LOL. He is the funniest, sweetest person. We chatted for a few minutes and he instantly realized that I was on the same cool-level as him, so he gave me his number. We hang out all the time now. It's crazy. #ImLying

Speaking of the oscars, did you all watch it? I thought it was so wonderful this year. Although I was sad that Jennifer Lawrence lost… but I instantly ate my words when I heard Lupita's speech. WOW. I actually haven't watched 12 Years A Slave yet, but I have been meaning to FOREVER and it is on my list of things to do this week. 

But anyway, these past few weeks have truly been a blur. I actually REALLY want to start making lots of posts and even some videos! I'm feeling super inspired. So I will see you all very soon! XOXO
