hallways.   i love a good hallway, especially lived in ones.  they lead to anywhere and everywhere.


just a thought that i was thinking yesterday.  hate sounds like such a strong word to own.  Yes?  Perhaps you don’t hate others, but maybe find yourself hating on their work or even battling thoughts of hating on yourself.  Hate gets you no where.  Creating can open doors to anywhere.  Create your own work to be proud of.  And, best of all, create the life you’ve always dreamed of.


the new Susan Ziptop Crossbody by FashionAble.  I’ve been searching for the perfect black crossbody bag and I have found it.  Not only beautiful in product but mission.  LiveFashionable provides opportunities for women in Africa to be ABLE to live better lives.

pressed-flowers_la-la-lovely pressed flowers.  Do you ever press flowers in a book?  I’ve never really done it with intention, but there have been times that I have picked up a flower or some type of foliage while being outside and used it as a bookmark.  In fact, I have an almost 20 year old flower from Africa, still pressed in an old Bible that I had with me on that trip.  I love opening the page that I marked for a reason and having a tangible piece of beauty from another land and another time.

la la loving house desk

it’s no secret i love a good house bed….and now, i’m on to house desks.  wouldn’t this make homework or work so much better?


this quote that was a print.  some of us are trying to avoid ordinary life.  some of us trying to find it.  some of us trying to live fully in it.

la la loving raw choclate-pudding

raw chocolate pudding made with avocados.  can’t wait to make this  from clean slate by martha stewart.  all of the chocolate concoctions look so good.


i’m still loving the copper DIY trend.  maybe it’s because i haven’t made anything yet?  annabode has a round up of all the bests, if you’d like to create with copper.

this gorgeous dining room.


a fresh and freckled face with the perfect winged eye.  i’ve got to get this skill down.


these words by martha graham.  “it is not your business to determine how goot it is, nor how valuable, nor how it compares with other expressions.  it is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly….”


chocolate sauce!  this recipe is actually a healthy one with 3 ingredients.  i’m doing a 3 day detox (major headaches!) and dreaming of chocolate.  when i incorporate chocolate again, i’m thinking this is the way to go!

justina blakeney’s jungalow headquarters.  every.single. thing about it.  like, even the water cooler.


being smothered and covered in flowers and greenest greens.


the wise words of dr. martin luther king jr.  Light and Love.  Always.


the pink beaches of harbour island.  i’m breaking up with winter.


this chopped winter salad.  because salads always say summer, even if winter is part of their name.  and, doesn’t this just look so fresh?

this bedroom ,which looks so fresh and springy but cozy enough to keep warm under those blankets for winter.  exactly the combo i’m craving right now.


clearly, not seeing flowers out the window during winter…. but on the window?  this is the way.


agreed.  because, these days all i seem to wear is black, but my mind – it is totally technicolor.


this gorgeous necklace.  such a pretty pretty pendant.


oven baked fries with sea salt.  i could never break up with fries so i figure i better find healthy to spend time with them.
