Eyes on Hats

I have been eyeing on these wide brim hats. Fashion editorials have it, models wear it and people in colder places seem to own at least three. I own two by the way. Maybe if I get another one, I'll be ready enough to get out of this town and move to the Pacific North West? No? Yeah, probably not. I think I'll just keep trying on those pretty, pretty hats at the mall. :)

Holiday Wish List Idea

I have been spoiling myself as of late. In my mind, I have never had a normal job for so long that I need to make myself feel that I can again get what I want for myself. I am also in the process of breaking away for everything trendy and rebuilding my closet to what I feel comfortable wearing. I think I have had enough with buying statement tops and now aim to make every top a blank canvas. Yay for changes!

So back to my point. The holidays are here and for the first time ever, I don't have a loooong list and I really know what I want. Everything else I want, I have decided to get for myself which I think is fair that now, I am employed. So here goes.



  • My love for taking pictures is pretty intense right now and the moment I found out about the new lens Canon is releasing, I got super excited. It's gotten great reviews too!
  • Skagen Ditte is a good replacement for DW watches. You get the same vibe for a (much) lower price. 
  • Do I really have to explain why I love Sam Smith's album? #EARGASM
  • I don't think I could go through another cold season without a parka. But I heard from a little (beautiful) birdie that she already ordered this for me. :D

What's in your wishlist for the Holidays?

The Laughing Project

Lately, in my attempts to not go on a full-blown anxiety attack, my mantra has been: Don't let it get to you.

I've always believed that being positive starts within you and that it is your responsibility to share that positivity in any way you can. With this always in mind, I have become that person who smiles at strangers, bums, old people and tells people who work at the register, "Don't work too hard!" I may have gotten that line from my husband who now hates it when I beat him to saying it.

Anyway, while I was on my blog search spree at work (if you want to be on our list, you know where and how to reach me), I found Hello Miss Jordan and read her post about #TheLaughingProject. The post made me happy and I thought it was wonderful that she wanted everyone to get on in it. The post is heartfelt and honest that I just had to join her project. Here's a bit from her post:
The Laughing Project is simple; spread your laughter. You know how when you're with a group of friends and then one person starts laughing at something? By the end of it, you're all in hysterics, even if the thing they were originally laughing at wasn't that funny to you. That's kind of what this is all about. 
To take part, all you have to is share your happiness and laughter, using the hashtag #thelaughingproject through your blogs, Twitter or Instagram.

There are three ways to take part:
  • Upload a photo of your beautiful laughing face. It can be as recent or as old as you like.
  • Tell the story of the funniest thing that's ever happened to you that made you laugh (it can be related to the photo if you want but it doesn't have to be).
  • Say about something which you have done to spread laughter or happiness recently (< I think this is the most important!)
So let me share my favorite laughing face of myself. Ever...

This was taken after my bout with a gastrointestinal infection when I was about one year old. I believe no one remembers why I was laughing but I feel like this is as genuine as laughing can get. In case you're wondering, I still throw my head back when I laugh only I have learned to cover my mouth with both hands. :)

Now it's your turn! Tweet or Instagram what have you done to spread happiness! Don't forget to add #TheLaughingProject in your caption! :)

Outtakes

Because behind every cute photo of my dogs is a ridiculous, hilarious or scary picture of them doing something I was not expecting.

'Kay, now it's time to have a great weekend with these two monsters! :)

A Good Reminder

via French Wedding Style
Let's stop letting society define us. Stop being that friend you're envious of. Stop buying stuff because everyone has them. Find your own passion, do it in your own time and stay passionate about it. Life is too short to mirror someone else and not have your own story.
