Mini-Break

Mar 15, 2012

Good afternoon!

I had a post all planned for yesterday, and then school happened. Assignments and field trips and essays, oh dear.

And while I wish I could look as fabulous as Grace & Audrey while I study, it's not gonna happen haha



These next five weeks are going to be the toughest and fastest weeks ever. I will stop by when I can (and hopefully will have a little mini project up next week!) but I just need to step back a bit. You can still find me on Twitter & Pinterest (can't give everything up haha) but I won't be around here as much.

I am so ready to be done & graduated.

Hope your week is going well!!!

Post-Grad

Mar 13, 2012

Good morning!

It's less than six weeks now until I finish school. Boggles my mind. So much is happening before then (are you coming to META??) and I can't believe it's going to be over so soon.

I do hope life post graduation involves a little of these places:




London. Edinburgh. Paris.

These cities have stolen my heart. I've only been to one of them, but I know the other two will be beyond fantastic.

Here's to turning dreams into plans!!

Sock in my Bun

Mar 12, 2012

Good morning!

Hope you had a lovely weekend!!

So I've been hearing a lot about this sock bun thing, so I decided to try it out this weekend and holy poop guys, my bun looked fantastic. Thick and full and like it took a while to pile it all up there.

There's lot of tutorials on Youtube & such, but I found a really good one in photos right here. It creates the most perfect looking bun that looks like it took such a long time but really takes 30 seconds. Genius. I bet the first girl who used a sock in bun had friends that thought she was crazy. I might have too at one point but now I'm a believer.

Do you put a sock in your buns??

Save the Date!!!

Mar 8, 2012

Good morning!

It's almost here!! META 2012, the fourth year show that we've been planning for months, is almost here!

And I would like to cordially invite you to our opening night on March 29! 

The show is open to the public on March 30 & 31, but our opening night is the big party to celebrate everything! We've worked very hard for a very long time now to put this show together and I would be so thrilled if you could make it! The final art pieces from the class are being chosen next week, and I must say, there are some crazy impressive works!


You can click on the image above, or right here to check out our website for more info. When the artists are chosen, that page will be updated as well as the curators page (where you'll find my mug shot! haha)

If you can't make it to opening night but would like to attend on the Friday or Saturday, let me know and I'll let you know when I'll be there to give you a proper tour :)

It's so hard to believe that it's 3 weeks (!!!!!) away after so many months of work. These next 3 weeks are serious crunch time though, so if I miss a day or two of blogging, you'll know why!

I hope you're having a fantastic week and I can't wait to see some of you at META!!

Three Ways: Minty Mint

Mar 7, 2012

Good morning!

It's been a while since I've done one of these posts but I thought it was high time to start again :)

As you know, mint is one of my favourite shades, so it was only appropriate to use it as my inspiration.





The cake painting must find a way into my home one day. Must. And that living room with the minty walls and all those frames?? So much in love!

Hope your week is going well!

Furry Friends

Mar 6, 2012

Good morning!

I love little furry friends :) They make life so much more fun and entertaining. But if you can't have a real furry friend because of allergies or something, what about these furry friends?

Picasso Cats Scarf
Daisy
Gold Cheetah Wallpaper
Hot Pink Elephants
Baby White Tiger No. 5
Buck Head Deer Pillow

Okay, maybe some of them aren't so much furry as sparkly, but how cute are those elephants??? I love that they look like they're smiling :) And Daisy the cow?? SO cute.

Oh gosh. I could spend all day looking at these cuties :)

A Theme I've Noticed

Mar 5, 2012

Good morning!

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed a slight theme as of late. I've posted the images here so you can inspect for yourself and see whether you agree with me.






They seem to match my blog don't they? Very curious indeed...

:)

Hope you had a lovely weekend!

Friday Favourites, New Finds Edition

Mar 2, 2012

Good morning!

Often when I discover a new blog, I read a couple posts, pin some images, sometimes subscribe if I like what I see, the usual. But when I discover a blog I love, I spend quite a bit of time pouring over old posts, reading all the different pages, following on twitter/pinterest/etc.

The latter is what happened when I found Simple Village Girl via The Everygirl (which I'll talk about in a minute!)

Simply inspiring photography, beautiful words, and a place that felt a bit like an escape. My favourite post might be this one, Clevedon, where you can find the image below.

I highly recommend you go check out Siubhan & her blog :)


Elsewhere in blogland this week,

Mackenzie of Design Darling launched her boutique yesterday! It's filled with so many beautiful things it's hard to pick a favourite, but this exclusive K. Slademade clutch might be mine. Or maybe this stunning turquoise necklace?

And I know I mentioned it earlier in the post, but The Everygirl launched last week. If you haven't heard, where have you been??? Filled with fabulous posts & pictures, I cannot wait to see what co-founders Alaina & Danielle do next!

What have you discovered this week?

Hope you have a lovely weekend!!

Pink & Turquoise Love

Mar 1, 2012

Good morning!

I have loved this colour combo since I saw Eileen Kathryn Boyd's space in Lonny's December 2010 issue.


And when Michaela pinned the image below last night, it reminded just how much I adore this combo!


So I thought a little roundup of my favourite pink & turquoise spaces was in order :)





Such a happy and cheerful combo! What colours are you loving lately?

Hope you have a lovely day!!

B
