things

ten things i love sunday.

another sunday, another chance for me to tell you what i’m obsessing over this week.

1. i love fashion & design blogs. love love love them. they make me want to make myself and my house look cuter. a new one i’m loving is idee geniale. i mean, the blog’s not new, but my love for it is!

2. art journals. i always get these grandiose ideas for art journals, but i never feel like mine look quite as cool as others do. i found the waterhalo blog, and i love the simplicity of each page. it’s so much more my speed than the super-collage kind, which i really admire, but can never achieve. so thanks to waterhalo for inspiring me to restart my art journal efforts. ūüôā

3. speaking of collage, i’m in LOVE with holograme’s collage style. bee-eau-tiful!! i especially love this alice-in-wonderland-inspired one.

4. knee socks (and over-the-knee socks)!! i love sleeping in them or just lounging around in them. oh, how i wish i had the cute knees/thighs of the gals in these pics so my knee socks actually looked this sexy.

5. brookish on etsy has the coolest pride & prejudice-inspired stuff. ūüôā i LOVE this mug and have been wanting it for ages.

6. this. i want to go to marrakech, morocco.

7. my shiny zebra shoes from target.

8.  i want this book.

9. and i *have* this book. keel’s simple diary. in yellow.¬†i ordered it from amazon (it was cheaper there than from anthropologie or the other stores that sell it…), and it arrived on wednesday. i love it. i don’t always feel like writing in a journal, but this is so creative & original & thought-provoking.

10. my favorite lyrics from radiohead’s “creep”.
