June ii

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. I can’t believe it’s June already. Summer is just around the corner, so kick it off with a brand new playlist. My summer began last week when I saw The Weeknd. I’m hoping I’ll have more chances this summer to see some of my favorite artists.

Enjoy and may your June be wonderful.

Flower power 

April showers bring May flowers (and rain and gloom even though it’s almost June, apparently). I admit the green thumb gene skipped a generation, but I love seeing all the pretty blooms popping up. For today’s post, I collected planter ideas from around the web. Check these homes for your favorite houseplants.

Get the party started with this disco-inspired diy. Via a bubbly life

Don’t throw away old light bulbs just yet. These will light up your house in a new way. Please be careful if you decide to attemp this project. Via free people

Even plants like to play dress up. Via a beautiful mess

Simple, yet super adorable. Via best friends for frosting

Who doesn’t love a good faceplant? He he, get it? I’m sorry. Via kao ani

You’ll have to translate the instructions to English, but how cute are these animals made from milk cartons? Via pysselbolaget

Stay gold with this gold leaf project. So pretty. Via delia creates

It doesn’t get any easier than peeling labels off tin cans and painting them in fun colors. Via dos family

Even plants could use a little sparkling pizazz. Via the pretty bee

May wishes

It’s officially been a month since my last post. Oops. Anyway, I’m here now to kind of make up for lost time with your new playlist and a couple of my favorite things at the moment.

Favorites

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to break out the pineapples. These piña colada leggings from We the Dreamers are adorable and perfect for sunny days. The leggings are also available in azure agave and feather festival

I hope May gives you everything you want.

It’s a girl!

13.100.17.

I think you already know where this is going. 

The only way I would be pregnant is through immaculate conception. Also, I’m saving myself for my wedding, that is if I ever see the day. Sorry for the heart attack, mom.

All tasteless jokes aside, here’s a new playlist to inspire your next great prank.

Spring blues

Hi, there. Miss me? 

These days, it seems like I don’t have as much time to blog. Sometimes work and life doesn’t let you keep up. I’ll figure it out and get back on track eventually. Things have a way of working out in the end. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience.

For it being officially spring, it sure isn’t acting like it. When you wake up to a storm, you just want to hide under the covers all day. I just want sunshine and clear blue skies again.

In other news, Lent is going along great, except for that one dream about a brownie. Soon, I’ll be able to enjoy a chocolate bunny. I also want to get back into a regular routine in time for summer. Also, it’s the end of the month, which means a new playlist is coming for something to look forward to.

If it’s also gloomy for you, stay warm and cozy. If it’s not gloomy, tell me where you are, so I can run away.

40

Alright, so it’s been a while since I last updated. Three weeks, but who’s counting? Hopefully, you didn’t miss me too much. Anyway, I’m here now and that is all that matters.

It is Ash Wednesday, which means Lent is officially here. This year, I’ve decided to give up sweets. I haven’t been kind to my body in terms of eating and something’s gotta give. 40 days without giving my sweet tooth the satisfaction should do me some good. I ended Fat Tuesday with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and that’s that.

I also recently found out about 40 Acts, a Lenten generosity challenge, and I decided to sign up for it. Each day, there will be a daily challenge to encourage kindness for others. A simple act of kindness can go a long ways.

It’s the beginning of a new month, which means your new playlist is here. Enjoy.

Happy March.
