Other Awesome Stuff:

// Imagine a camera that shoots exactly what you see... using your eyes. Sound like a thing of the future? How about a thing of right now! Royal College of Art student Mimi Zou has created an iris-controlled camera that you shoot by double blinking. That's not even the amazing part... The camera can recognize your iris signature and load in your pre-set favorites like ISO, aperture and screen display!

// Do you love Target clearance as much as I do? This gal shares Target's markdown schedule and how to know if it'll be marked down again, or if that's the final price cut! Save you some serious dough!

// I think this map-on-canvas project would be a fun one for a family hallway... to help document the trips taken as a couple/family/solo. Even if you skipped the pinning, it's a great accent piece!

// If you're a gadget loving gal and you haven't checked out Gadchick yet, you're missing out! It was started by Diana last year and seriously, it's awesome. I'm not just saying that because they're a sponsor either. Diana is one of those rare ladies who I totally envy and admire all at the same time (in the best way!) She's a kind spirit and a passionate person. But the girl power doesn't stop there, there are tons of writers and contributors worth checking out. Watching Gadchick blossom with each new issue is really exciting. So many relevant articles, too! You can check out the issues or peruse the blog at your leisure! To me, Gadchick is a great way to feel good about being a woman. (PS: You can also read Gadchick on the go via the app! Yep, they have an app. Freaking rad) This has been a gush-fest brought to you by my adoration for all things awesome. ;)

// Wishlist Wears: a pink chiffon dress with cream crochet collar?! count me in! -- this denim dress with waist cut outs is a straight up throwback to 1992... and it's awesome. -- if you're ever in search of cute detachable collars, you'll have no problem finding the perfect one here. -- mauve, white, cream and crochet dress... recipe for adorable. -- i love these spikey headbands and i'd wear multiples at once (maybe? too much?) -- i never look good in white shoes but these cutout brogues are desirable!

// I love this DIY maxi skirt tutorial.

// I know pallet DIYs are "like so last season" but we've got a stack of 'em and I wanna build things! This patio table is the perfect solution. The stain finish just makes it.

So many times I have thought to myself - if only my photos would turn out as I see them :] Aaaaand thank you so much for passing along the Target information. I need to hit up Target on Tuesdays now!!

  40. The first time I saw that gif of the turtle eating the berry, I stared at it for about 5 minutes straight.

    That first quote is very true when you think about it.

    That's neat that the library lets people write whatever, but I'm surprised nobody ever draws penises or writes something crude.

    1. Thanks for the source! I can assure you pictures don't go uncredited because I don't want to source them, but because I'm unable to find the original source at the time of publishing. I always welcome my readers to send along any and all sources that go uncredited. Proper source has been added, thanks again!
