tilt | things i love thursday

my bunny finally found a new home with two little girls who will give her much more love and attention than i ever could... plus they are planning on changing her name to sparkles [or maybe sprinkles] which is much nicer than charlotte. it's like she is getting a whole new beginning!

over the knee socks


butter toffee flavored blue diamond almonds... the wasabi and soy sauce flavored ones are also good and from what i saw on their website apparently they make them in chili and lim

this video for "ah!" by oval rocks my world... for the ballerina i never was [tiny violin]... movement, imagery, dirty floor, love it so much

getting out of town this weekend to go to washington dc... i'm going to go shopping at h&m and ikea for the first time ever and i'm SO excited!



i can't get enough of this chick's disney tattoos! see also her "when you wish upon a star" chest piece from this tat-tuesday post.

matryoshka aka russian nesting dolls

blue rose... no this is not scarlett johansson

"hang in there baby"... i actually sought out a "hang in there" kitten tattoo when i was having a bad day. i was pleased that i actually found one :]


linkin logs

here are some amazing links that i have been collecting in my bookmarks for a while now. things are getting cluttered so i decided to share them here!
  • becoming influential and likable in business and in life [part 1, 2, and 3]
  • picasion: from what i hear this is the best site to use to make gifs. i haven't tried it yet, but it is staring me in the face every day urging me to try it. if you do try it, please show me what you end up with!
  • bell bottoms from novella royale shop... makes me want to try to make some as a little diy project because i can't $105 pants no matter how cute they are. especially considering they aren't even work appropriate.
  • picture perfect mega set photoshop actions from paint the moon: i love photoshop actions and this looks like a good set for editing portraits.
  • bootie blog: because we all love mashups and free mp3 downloads.
  • flowers by color from fifty flowers
  • house to home: room inspiration
  • ffff*ckr is always a favorite go to site to find amazing flickr photos. last but definitely not least.


kate spade | things we love

i love kate spade's things we love ebook. striped straws, cocktail rings, throwing confetti, peonies, photo booths, fun and games, doodling, our moms, fortune cookies, road trips, and a dash of sparkle... sounds like kate is a girl after my own heart.

rumor has it that this will be an actual print book, but i haven't been able to find anything official to that nature or a prospective release date so for now we will have to continue admiring over the internet.

tilt | things i love thursday: earth day edition

joli told me that i should include more of my own photography here so i made sure to throw in some of my most springy, earth day-ish photos from my last couple rolls of film :]

here are some things i love this thursday that are green in honor of earth day tomorrow!
  • turning off the lights when i leave a room [this includes the restrooms at work]
  • recycling
  • the solar panel and energy star appliances in my house
  • composting things instead of throwing them away. less trash and after a while you have the most amazing super soil at your disposal. we have the earth machine which came with our house, but you can make one out of an old trash can... did you know you could compost this stuff?
  1. rabbit poo [rabbits are seriously THE most eco-friendly pet, read more about it HERE]
  2. news paper, junk mail, paper towels, and any other non-glossy paper
  3. drier lint
  4. coffee grounds and the filter
  5. the obvious stuff: old fruit, veggies, expired bread... just about anything other than meat and other fatty items and poo from other household pets [other than rabbits]
  • my recycled coffee mug [which is also recyclable]
  • walking to work instead of driving
  • planting herbs and veggies in my yard + the cherry tree in our back yard
  • reading magazines online instead of the print version [or on our nook color]
  • donating prints to the virginia tech environmental coalition... if you are in blacksburg, friday there is a silent art auction between squires student center and the graduate life center at donaldson brown on the virginia tech campus. the proceeds are for the environmental coalition on campus. i donated a stack of 4x6 prints and they have donations from many other artists and local businesses. come by and check it out between 10am and 4pm on april 22! you can find more information on the facebook event.
