ETSY FINDS

Oh how do enjoy spending time sifting through Etsy to find that something special. A tip for anyone who has never used the site before, I recommend going in with a plan of what you're looking for or at least some type of idea. There are SO many areas that you can explore, and it can be a little daunting at first. I had a hard time finding things that really stuck out to me while putting together this post, but I stayed with a lot of my favorites from past visits to shops. It's also really nice because Etsy does a service of 'Recommended for You' and compiles a variety of products that are similar to things you've viewed before. All of these above are what have caught my eye lately, and it's a rag-tag bunch of items. I went in really searching for prints, because I want to decorate my wall with interesting art, and also a few fashion accessories. The dinosaur print is a MUST HAVE for me right now, it's so great. What are on some of your Etsy wish lists? Make sure to follow me!

Happy Monday, y'all! I hope you had a great weekend, and enjoyed yourselves. Here are some links to get your week started!
  • This is so random, yet so insanely funny! I've watched it at least 15 times since Saturday. FYI: You will get the song stuck in your head.
  • Boozy Ice Pops: DIY Pop-Tail Party from Influenster. YUM!
  • Who doesn't want sticky notes to put in their planner, especially when they're THIS flippin' cute and inspiration?!
  • ban.do just has the best items right now, and they're so aesthetically pleasing. I'm already planning for 2017 to be the coolest year yet, if I purchase this 17-month agenda planner.
  • She has the coolest hair, is a great makeup/SFX artist and seems super chill. She's also currently in the running in the NYX Face Awards Challenge, with this Mermaid Tutorial by Kristen Leanne!
  • Torrid hosted a casting call at the Mall of America on Saturday, and it was a blast! I attended, just to give it a shot and I think it was worth it. I got to meet some lovely ladies while waiting and I also met the current face, Georgina Burke! It was inspirational to see so many beautiful plus-size ladies all join together for something just as lovely.
  • Chris Evans. New York City. Romance. SIGN ME UP!

I'm just a tiny bit late on talking about this trend, but I've been seeing it EVERYWHERE lately in fashion, blog posts and even in home décor! The flamingo print is just not going anywhere, and so I wanted to touch on some of my favorite products that feature this beautiful creature. Think pink, a tropical paradise and spending the day in the sun. That just sounds nice, doesn't it?!

AS IF! THE FASHION IN CLUELESS

Thursday, July 16, 2015
Any 90s kid is aware of this movie, any fashion enthusiast knows the insanely iconic costumes and any Jane Austen fiend knows that it's an adaptation of Emma. Clueless turns 20-years-old this month! 20 years since Cher failed her driving test, since "Rollin' with the Homies" was the song of the day and 'Totally Buggin' was the phrase everyone used to describe a freak out. This movie was something my sister and I would watch religiously together, and it was a big part of our bonding when I was younger. It's all fond memories, and so I wanted to dedicate a post to this film that defined a decade! I've rounded up eight of my favorite looks from the movie, in no particular order, so enjoy and reminisce with me on this version of my #TBT!

SUMMER JAMS PLAYLIST

Tuesday, July 14, 2015
This summer playlist is all about feel-good music, and these jams have been providing just that for me lately. These are the type of songs that you can't get our head, that you want to blast in your car while driving with the windows down. Some are classics, some are newbies but they are all important to me right now. Listen on Spotify, and follow me!

THESE THINGS: GYPSY SPELL

Friday, July 10, 2015

(PHOTOS VIA: 1 | 2 | 3)

"Lovers forever. Face to face.  My city or mountains.  Stay with me stay.  I need you to love me. I need you today.  Give to me your leather.  Take from me.  My lace." - Stevie Nicks
I am always in the mood for a bohemian vibe, so today's These Things post is all about gypsy/boho inspiration in fashion. This is such a great trend that can also transition into fall, as the colors and patterns are a perfect setting for the change of seasons. While I am not a huge fan of most 70s-inspired fashion, this is one that I can totally get behind and really have been loving recently. It's a serious throwback, and I've been noticing it more and more lately on the runways. Valentino is a great source of inspiration, especially their Pre-Fall 2015 collection! Think classic boho fringe and silhouettes, mixed with gypsy-esque fabrics. Stevie Nicks is a great style icon of this trend and designers like Marchesa & Vera Wang brought it to the runway. I won't be rocking bell-bottom jeans anytime soon, but I can get behind flowy dresses and floppy hats any day!

JULY INSPIRATION

Friday, July 3, 2015

(PHOTOS VIA: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8)
 
July is upon us! That means tons of sun, celebrating with a good BBQ, listening to new music and kicking back with a good book. I am quite looking forward to all of these, especially if it means I can actually be a normal person while doing them. The past month or so has been pretty difficult in regards to feeling like a functioning human being, but I truly hope that can change while the summer goes on. Life has been an ongoing circle lately, which always happens to me at this time of year, and I'm just itching to get away. Here's hoping July will be good to me, and to everyone around me. Most all of these things above are inspiring me lately, and I can't complain on that front. What are you inspired with for this month?!
