Loving: Pink hair! I want it...temporarily. So, I found a website that reccomended Davines Alchemic Red hair conditioner. It's supposed to make already red hair, redder. For those of us without red hair it just gives you a pink tint. AND it only stays in for a few washes and then its gone forever. Definitely want to try this!

Reading: Other than my Elle magazine that comes in the mail...nothing. It's really sad. I have many many books I want to be reading. The Game of Thrones books are top of the list. I don't have money to buy them. And I have a fee due at the library so that avenue is a no go. Are you seeing my dilemma?

Watching: Lots of HGTV! I've always loved design shows but HGTV has really upped their game. The High Low Project is a new favorite of mine. I love the concept of the show. And, Sabrina Soto is just such a sweetheart! 

Listening to: This Summer I've been loving a lot of Summer-esque music. You know the kind-layed back, guitar-centered, somewhat-rapping vocals, blues-rock type of music. For a lot of people this includes The Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, etc. However, I don't really care for any of the artists just named. I've been loving Justin Nozuka, James Morrison, Joshua Radin, Ed Sheeran, and Jason Reeves (lots of J named people apparently...).

Anticipating: The Dark Knight Rises premiere! AH! I'm so excited! I just watched this 13 minute feauturette and it literally took my breath away. (*Update*: I have officially watched this 3 times now).

Planning: My Europe trip! It's basically on my mind always. I recently purchased tickets to the Rock en Seine festival in Paris!!! I will finally get to see one of my favorite bands, Sigur Ros.

Wishing: I could buy a whole new wardrobe for my Europe trip. I have this vision in my head of looking really stylish and sophisticated in Paris or any other wonderful city I'll be in. I need to let go of this...because all my money is going to the trip itself. And I really have no right to complain!

Making: Dresses! I want to start selling dresses on my etsy shop. You should be seeing them in the next week :)

Wearing: Lots of shorts! Maryland is just coming out of a crazy heat wave that put us in the 100's. And when I say "coming out of" I mean, it's at least in the 90's now. It. Is. Hot. Always.

Drinking: Coffee, of course. I've been loving skinny vanilla latte's with soy milk from Starbucks. I love soy milk. And, I've also discovered that it tends to mask the artificial sweetener added in the "skinny" drinks.

Pinning: A little bit of everything! Yummy, yet healthy, recipes. Style inspiration. Interior design inspiration. And things like this...
Thankful for: The people in my life. I have been blessed with lots of good friends and family. As I write this I am sitting with my Mom and a family friend, Tom (or Uncle Tom :)). He likes to bring us Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee :)

I genuinely am interested in how you guys are doing as well! Write in the comments section what you have been doing lately or feel free to e-mail me!
P.S. I got this idea from Sometimes Sweet. You should check her blog out :)


  1. Hi allie! I'm great. Just getting over a fever, praise God. :) He totally healed me. Also, I'm quasi jealous of the md heat, San Fran likes to stay windy and pretty chilly. Enjoyed the post. -Iman

    1. I am glad you're feeling better!!! Thank you for leaving a comment! It always makes my day :)

  2. Enjoy your trip! Love all of those bands,too. Ps. How did you make your signature?!

    1. Thank you! I am VERY excited about it and hope to post lots of pictures and updates while I'm overseas :) My signature was made using I am no graphic designer so to make the graphics I found an all white "picture" on the internet and edited it with that website by adding words using a font I liked. then I just chose the dimensions I wanted. I'm sure there's a fancier way to do this all, but hopefully this helped :)
