Learning To Be Better

I had really hoped to start this year off strong, but that hasn't happened. I've been behind and struggling to catch up since day one. It's been really hard for me to deal with. However, starting this week I'm going to be making some lifestyle changes that will hopefully help with all that. One of those changes includes getting out of the apartment more, even if it's just to go down the street to Fuel and answer emails from there {ps... I'm in Fuel right now and you'd never guess what song is playing right now - No Scrubs by TLC. I don't think I've heard this song since 8th grade!}.

Another thing is that it's been a really long time since I thought about who I am, what I enjoy, and healthy ways of accomplishing being the most fulfilled, joyful me I can be. I know part of that needs to be spending more time reading my Bible and spending time with God. I just keep telling myself I've been too busy for that and many other things I should have time for. So here's to spending more time learning to be a better, happier me.

January Sponsors!

I'm way late with sharing these ladies with you, so don't forget to stop by their blogs/shops and show them some extra love! Happy Monday everyone!

Question of the month::: What shows are you looking forward to returning to TV this season? 

Just Lovely Things

What started as a frustration in not finding the type of hair accessories that Heather wanted to use on her own clients at her Hair Salon & Photography studio in 2010 led to an overnight success and selling of her businesses the next year. Still operating out of her own studio in Southern Oregon she now co-owns a paper, fabric & supply shop called Fawn & Flora as well as a growing subscription service Love Club. The accessories that started it all are still her best sellers, have inspired others to open similar shops and now appear in magazines and on celebrities. One thing remains the same... pretty girls, wearing pretty things... made by a girl they could probably be friends with.

Hi everyone, my name is Violet Short and I am obsessed with photography and I love blogging! Both started as hobbies for me, but slowly became a passion that I would use to start a career. I really love trying new things, crafting, creating new recipes and enjoying the artsy things in life!

I was so tired of the winter hiatus from my new TV obsession, Parks and Recreation! I love it!!! And am SO glad it's back.


My name is Chelsea and I live on the beautiful Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, where I'm studying for my Ph.D. in marine science. When I'm not chasing invasive lionfish underwater, I'm spending time outdoors and working with my hands.  I have a little shop full of bright, fun Caribbean handmade treasures and I blog about any and all things in life that are inspired by nature.

My favorite shows are The Office and Modern Family, which have already started and I definitely make time for them on Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Oh television shows I'm excited about... can't talk about this without mentioning Downton Abbey! My other favorite these days that just recently started is Suits. I just love the sarcastic humor between Harvey and Mike, I won't lie! I also loved The Finder on Fox, but I just realized it was cancelled and I'm a little depressed now. Bummer!

I love sharing DIY projects, photography, home decor, arts and crafts, music, inspired living, and all things graphic design. was created as a way to curate and share my obsessions with design.

My Week In Instagrams

I got to go to a show last night to see my friend's band play. It was totally awesome. I've only been to one other concert in my whole life and it was nothing like last night. I can't believe I've been missing out on this for so long! Also... I splurged on an avocado and that was definitely a highlight of my week. Is that weird?

Only three days left to enter the January giveaways! Don't miss out!
