I seriously cannot believe that Christmas is almost here! Where does the time go? Even though I generally do not love the low temperatures, I’m really excited about this winter season. Bundling up, watching it snow, it’s all very cozy. In the city it only snows a few times so everyone stays home and get their snowboards/skis/sleds out and take over the roads. It’s really funny to me because I come from a town that snow A LOT so it’s nice to have a different perspective on snow-days.

I wanted to make my own gift tags and wrapping paper this year so I decided to share them on here as well.

Stay warm and enjoy! xo

I’ve made variations of this smoothie everyday for the last two weeks. I seriously cannot get enough of it! It is so delicious and healthy to boot. It’s prefect for a quick refreshing breakfast or lunch. I’ve been experimenting with different ingredients but I think the ingredients above are my favorite. Throw in some maca powder, chia seeds, different kinds of milk, etc. and see what you like the best.

I decided to create an illustration and I’m hoping to commit to doing them more regularly to challenge myself and to up my illustration skills. I used to be faster at it but I haven’t had time as of late. I need to change that asap. Fall Term starts Monday so we’ll see how it goes!

Is it friday yet??

Hi Friends!

Here are a few things I’ve been into lately, trying out or simply admiring from afar. Please enjoy!

1. This earring set via Still With You. I love the ear cuff (it looks like a delicate conch piercing).
2. This capsule wardrobe planner via Unfancy. I’m really into her wardrobe concept and I cannot wait to give it a go.
3. Refinery29 Beauty Prep School video on how to find the right eyeshadow for your eye color.

4.  After sun lotion recipe via Cocorrina. Her blog is bulging at the seams with beautiful content.
5. Anouk Yve’s amazing hair and how she styles it. I wish my natural curls looked a little more like these beachy waves.
6. Refinery29 article – how minimalists accessorize featuring J. Hannah jewelry.
