Weekly Pinspiration

We have successfully finished the first week of February! With this blizzard looming, I am staying focused on all things spring! So close, right?! Only 41 days! And with that, here is my weekly pinspiration, filled with cozy settings, pretty florals, bright pinks, vibrant greens and sparkling golds.

I also love the two quotes – they are very relevant to what’s happening in my life right now. This is my time to just “go and do.” More often than not, I overthink things, which tends to hold me back from doing what I want. I have finally learned that I need to stop worrying and just “go and do!” I also tend to put others first and try to do what will make them happy. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but in the past six months, I have learned that you can only do so much for people. Unfortunately, you can give your heart and soul to a person and receive nothing in return. You can spend all of your time and energy walking a very thin line – trying to do everything that person has asked of you and trying to give them as much of yourself as you can to make sure that person is happy. I have learned that as much as I care for others and want to make other people happy, there comes a point in time when I need to stop worrying about everyone else and how my actions will affect them and just start doing what’s best for me. It is important to take some time and do what’s best for you, because in the end, you need to take care of yourself first and foremost. So, I am finally taking this time to do what’s best for me and the first step is my new job, which I start in less than two weeks!

Happy Friday, everyone! Now “GO and DO!” And always remember to do what’s best for you!

My Week via Instagram

I finally organized my craft books in the basement and took some time to catch up on my magazine reading.

I rocked my Toms leopard fur botas all week and they kept my feet so warm!

We had a gallery opening on Friday night at work, so I got to dress up all fancy in my metallic gold skirt with a bow.

I finally caved and bought myself a bottle of Jimmy Choo perfume. I think it was a good investment because I’ve been receiving many compliments!

And I spent the weekend in the city celebrating my best friends 25th birthday. We splurged and decided to get a hotel, which turned into the greatest decision ever because the front desk greeted us with free, warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Happy Monday, everyone! Here’s a quick glimpse at the past week via my instagram photos.

The warmer temperatures last week made for the perfect weather to rock my Tom’s suede wedge booties.

I am in love with this Audrey Hepburn quote, which pretty much sums up they way I am going to live my life in 2013! (image via: http://bugaboocorner.blogspot.com/2012/02/audrey-hepburn-quote.html)

Yesterday I did some screen printing, which I will be blogging about later 🙂

And obviously, I can’t go a day without taking a picture of my dog…yes, I am that crazy dog person.

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the week ahead!

Things I’m Lovin’ in December

I can’t believe we’re entering into the first full week of December! Although the air is starting to have that raw bite and the days are ending earlier, I do love this time of year – the twinkling lights that decorate houses and stores, the sound of Christmas music always playing in the background, and scents of burning fires, cinnamon and pine.
