Round up

Happy Friday everyone!!

This week went by slowly and quickly, not sure how that works. Next week I am going to Costa Rica, and this weekend I am shooting a wedding, so you and I have some blog posts to look forward to!

This past weekend I decided to do some DIY projects, so lets start there.

1. DIY Chalkboards- I had to tell my roommates to take the paint away from me, otherwise I would have painted EVERYTHING!! For now I did my pantry doors, one side is a message board/game center, the other side is the menu for the week! I also painted my ingredient tubs, more for fun, but the tape I used sucked and it bled through, but thats okay!

2. As a wedding photographer, I am all for weddings, however, when it comes to myself, maybe an elopement? I think it is so romantic to be just with the man you love and focus on your love for each other, rather than stress about all the details of a big wedding.

This bouquet, these colors, they're so in love.  (via Magnolia Rouge)

3.  I really really really want to travel and take photos of pretty places. Zion, Utah is where I am currently dying to go! Check out this blog post and video, and you'll fall in love like I did- who wants to go hike?! (photo via Laura Ivanova)

4.  I want a wall of photos. I was thinking of cutting up sheets of paper and sticking them up onto the wall in different sizes, to be my pretend frames, and arranging my photo wall that way. But you know... that's a lot of work. So happy I found this cheat! (via honeyandfitz)

5.  This artist, this song. 

6.  Corner bookshelves. I want corner bookshelves!!! Great DIY... or purchase. (via etsy)

7.  How about doing something like this for all the places you visit, of your favorite places? Would be a great conversation starter and it is super unique! (via creative roots)

8. Flowers make me such a happy girl, it's ridiculous. "Sometime I arrive with my buds closed; other times my blooms have already opened. In either case, I can promise you a smile and a touch of Springtime."  (top photo via Jose Villa)

9. You may not like berries, but I love you to the moon and back, regardless. (via stylemepretty)

10.  Succulents... they really are the best thing, EVER. PERIOD. (via flickr)

Round up

Happy Friday everyone!!

Blogging has never come super easy to me, however, bookmarking and pinning totally has, which made me think... that is blogging in itself.

With this said, I want to share with you things that got me though this week. I am going to try to do this every Friday, as I know when we enter the weekend, sometimes we need things to inspire us and get us out of bed! Maybe even some weekend projects to do!

Here we go:

1. I recently moved out of my parents house and moved into, well my parents old house, which is awesome because I can basically do anything I want to the interior, and I have been dying to make it all my own! I saw this on BuzzFeed and it really got me thinking! How cool would it be to make a mini one of these for my living room, or even this full sized one and hang it outside on my patio for decoration- with real herbs (practical too)!

2. Ever wanted to make cool sounds with your keyboard and see crazy graphics that mesmerize you on your computer? Yeah, me too! This website kept me busy for a little bit, check it out! http://www.patatap.com/

3. I've always loved adventure and doing crazy stuff! I've been dying to go to Yosemite for quite some time now, and after seeing this video, I have to do this!!! Who wouldn't want to soar high over the rocks and trees? (Click the photo below to see the video)

4. Wedding season is right around the corner! I saw this on HonestlyWtf and almost died! Such a great idea for center pieces, or if you use succulents, it is a great idea as a piece of art on your wall... maybe I will do something like this for my dining room!

    5.  Dust, records, & liquor. Enough said.

6.  Diy signs, diy signs, diy signs, who's in?! (via flickr)

7. I used to do this all the time... why have I stopped, errr, forgotten about this? I am looking at ways to dress up my house, I could totally get a few picture frames, press some flowers, and hang this in the guest bathroom- such a simple and cute way to dress up a bathroom I think!

8. && then there is this! How cute would it be to have your initials, with your loves, with a map of the world?! I think this is adorable and would be great for a bedroom or office space! 

9.  I am going to try freelensing now, heck I will ONLY be freelensing now, people are getting some awesome results! How cool are the two photos below?! (via Minkmade & Meredith Sledge Photography)

10. I feel like I am loading myself up with DIY projects, but why not? I really wanted to get a leather shag run, but after reading reviews on the seller and the item, I decided it may be better just to spend the time and money and make my own out of fabric, have any of you done that? I need a unique black rug for my space, I'm thinking it could turn out really cool! (diy via myloveofstyle)
