Lost momentum

I kind of lost my momentum and inspiration for new pictures, but I'm hoping that changes soon. If it doesn't, I have a few other ideas for posts (not super exciting posts, but oh well). 
In other news, I think I'm finally getting over my cold, which has lasted forever. Also, the weather is warming up and I'm excited to enjoy my patio again. 
I hope I have some new stuff up soon!

update: online garage sale

all items that were listed on my little online garage sale are gone. just thought i'd let everyone know.



diary of the constantly unwell

i hate being sick more than anything. i can't seem to shake my current cold and now have developed a kidney infection from taking cold medication.

i feel like i'm starting to fall behind on doing the things i enjoy as well as falling behind on my daily routine. my house in a state of total disarray right now, which is starting to get to me.

i'm hoping this weekend to get all rested up so that i can start working on the projects i have half finished. i should be back to normal next week....fingers crossed.



*in other news, there's a new post on the cassette club page. check it out here

currently playing

i've been updating my ipod all weekend with all of the download codes that came with the new records i bought.

one of my favorite albums that i've been listening to non-stop is too true by the dum dum girls. their music reminds me of stuff i used to listen to in grade school, but better.

one of my other current favorites that i bought this weekend is chelsea wolfe's unknown rooms album.

i'm currently waiting on some new stuff from chelsea wolfe that i ordered from hello merch a few weeks ago. i can't wait to see the short film that she did the music for. i'll have a post about it as soon as i get it.

and the last thing that i got (that came with a digital copy anyway) is the new warpaint album. i've been in love with warpaint since i saw them in concert a few years ago. this track is off of their new album.

i hope you all enjoy the music. also, my boyfriend has several new posts that will be up this week on his music blog. click the cassette club button on the side to check it out.



*in other news, i have some new photos planned for early this week as well as a couple of "home life" posts about other goings ons. i've been toying with the idea of starting to do some new outfit posts once the weather gets a little warmer as well as some crafty DIY type posts.

crazy isn't

crazy isn't being broken or swallowing a dark secret. it's you or me amplified. if you ever told a lie and enjoyed it. if you ever wished you could be a child forever.

--susanna kaysen



*i absolutely loved susanna kaysen's book girl, interrupted. i also really like the movie, which is rare. i usually like the books way more than the movies, but this one was just great. if you haven't read the book or watched the movie i highly recommend them.

*i think i'm almost done with doing double self images....maybe. i have a few more ideas that i want to try, but i'm not sure if they'll work out. also, i'm feeling almost back to my old self. this cold has really slowed me down on my to do list, but all the rest has done me a lot of good. i have some lovely stuff planned for this weekend and hopefully the weather will be nice enough for me to enjoy the outdoors.

the secret whisperer

there once was a girl who told me her secrets.....

....they stormed through my subconscious

and then she was gone, and i was left alone to ponder all that i had heard.

i'll keep her secrets forever.



*i'm back from my social media hiatus! i had intended to have new stuff posted on monday, but some unforeseen events prevented me from doing so. on saturday, my boyfriend and i went to my nephew's birthday party (the terrible 2s begin) and on our way home my car broke down on the highway. after having it towed we walked up the highway to a restaurant to wait for my sister to come pick us up. this would not have been a bad walk, but it was 30 degrees and windy which made it almost unbearable. needless to say, saturday night i ended up running a fever of 102 accompanied by an ear ache. after 3 days of feeling terrible, i'm finally feeling better aside from a few sniffles and a sore throat. now that i'm some what back to normal i plan on posting more this week and have lots of new pictures to work on.

*listen to what i'm listening to here

social media hiatus

i've taken a little break from social media and blogging, but i will be back next week with some new posts. i needed a little time to clear my head and refocus on my photography. i am also starting a few sewing projects that have been taking a lot of my time. since i've been staying clear of the internet i've been doing lots of reading and sketching for new ideas. this little break has been really nice and i can't say that i missed the internet at all really. until next week.
