Things I Love Thursday



Happy Thursday friends! Doesn't it seem like the weeks are just flying by now?! September has always been one of my favorite months and it's already halfway over. Kind of blows my mind! We'll be showered with bright orange leaves before we know it! I truly wish Autumn wasn't so fleeting. It makes for the best outdoor socializing (hello coffee and hot chocolate while bundled up in a scarf and jacket!) and the prettiest of pictures! Here's my weekly run down of all things awesome!

♥ this image makes my TiLT posts a few times a year! ♥

this picture is just the sweetest ♥

this aristocats cake! ♥

this silly retort ♥

this gorgeous illustration ♥

this is the perfect dress!

♥ baby platypus! ♥

these cute and crafty donuts! ♥

♥ jane was always so eloquent ♥

♥ this simply must make your heart happy, right?! ♥

♥ and the happiest of all awesome news in this week's TiLT: ♥
Exing Out Discrimination of the Day: Australia has taken an important step toward transgender equality by adding a third gender option to national passports.
The new gender category — designated with an “X” — will be available to all Australians with a doctor’s statement supporting their choice.
“X’ is really quite important because there are people who are indeed genetically ambiguous and were probably arbitrarily assigned as one sex or the other at birth,” said Senator Louise Pratt, whose partner, Aram Hosie, is a transman.
“It’s a really important recognition of people’s human rights that if they choose to have their sex as ‘indeterminate,’ that they can.” (via: dailywhat. source: ap via wapo.)

Other Awesome Internet Biz: this awesome print-shoe DIY by Smitten & Hazel! ♥ This insane paneled accent wall DIY from Design*Sponge (holy crap!) ♥ My newest sponsor (Shop Speedy Girl) is the coolest flash-sale site I've seen yet (Think ModCloth dresses, but averaging $27! I stalk it everyday now!) ♥ anddddd I'm super stoked to finish up Honeybean's blog/site soon! (And unveil a new sponsor perk that will begin October 1st!)

Window Shopping: I can't tell if I love or hate these shoes (I'm leaning heavily toward love but boy oh boy are they WILD!)  These Seychelles are to die for! They are SO CUTE! The bow on top just takes them to the next level (and best of all, they're cheap in comparison to current ~trendy shoes!. Must. have!) ♥ and two dresses from one of my sponsors, Ruche: Bella Luna (the colors and print are heavenly!), Thulian Pleated Dress (I love the "ombre-esque" color palette. Swoon!) 

Offline-Awesome-Things: going bowling last night with the typical crew (Mike, Brian and Christina. I think we need a posse name. We're currently an up-and-coming band called Peacock Boombox. It's just a joke, and I can't play a single instrument, but it's a fun thought nonetheless! I'm on tambourine!) My new desk (Ikea!) and my little fake plant on it. (We can't keep anything alive... except this succulent which is holding on by a thread, so we accentuate our home with realistic looking fakes!) Having red hair again! I'll be sharing actual pictures of it soon! (It's already faded so much so it'll get touched up next week!) ♥ All of the Honeybean designers I've already lined up! I still have 60+ emails to go through but my heart is so so so full! So many amazing things are in the works and I hope each and every one of you can come shop the Honeybean in person! And last but not least, making a tattoo appointment to start the front of my legs! I haven't been tattooed since December so it's long overdue! Trying to get everything finished (at least the parts that will show outside of my dress) before the wedding next year!

What are you loving this week?!

  9. Hahaha I loved the "bags under my eyes," too hilarious. And yay Australia! I know they are still struggling with racism toward the Aboriginal people but it's great to see at least some steps taken toward equality and acceptance. <3

  15. i was happy to see some aussie references in this post.

    also, while we are on the topic. i cannot wait for the day your TILT includes australia finally saying it is okay for gay couples to get married. i just don't understand why we are so far behind in that respect.

  18. Totally awesome news on the Oz passport. I've been living here for 2 years now and this is easily one of the most forward-thinking and open-minded nations I know of!

    Great to see they took yet another step towards the benefit of their residents. If only the US could not be so ignorant and take note already :/

    Someday.

  20. Oh my gosh, so much in this post made me melt. Especially the hugging chain of koalas and the baby platypuses!!!

    I also am so happy you posted that transgender news!!! My wife is transgender (male to female) and I wish the United States did something like this for people who are in the middle of transitioning. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing something so awesome!

  21. Baby platypuses are called puggles, and I think that makes them even cuter!

  26. Oh my gosh, Daria. My favorite! Absolutely love that show. Also, I checked out your video on hair extensions and went & got myself some! Always wanted them but thought they would be too expensive. Thanks for sharing the info. On them. Now I can have the long hair I always wanted but was too lazy to grow out! ;)

  27. Makes me proud to be an Aussie! Next step - legalising gay marriage.

  28. It was definitely great to see Aus finally change the Passport gender requirements. Such a significant step from a very conservative bunch. I love that you knew about it all the way in the States too! Very worldly of you :)
