My Apologies

Dear Blogosphere,

My deepest apologies. I haven't posted in a very long time, and do I have a good reason? NO!

Not much has happened in my life. Though a couple of weeks ago I started a new Etsy shop (which you should totally checkout!

Hmm I'll try to update more often but I can't make any promises. haha.

The Daily Nail

I don't recall how I came across this awesome blog, but I'm totally in love with it.


Melissa, the blogger behind The Daily Nail, is on a mission to come up with a new design to paint her nails each day. She has painted her nails in a variety of different designs and I am in love with each of them. Below are some pictures of her awesome nails.









My favorite by far is the hollographic water marble (the last image)

Be sure to check out her amazing blog!

My Summer to Do List

Lately I've felt so unmotivated, but I've composed a summer to do list before I begin my clinical rotations August 16th

On the list:


  • Catch up on reading the books that I have bought over the past 5 years but just piled on the bookshelf. Some books on the list are Three Cups of Tea, House of Leaves, Eat Pray Love.
  • Play my Ukulele. I bought it last summer and I have only picked it up a handful of time.
  • Go to the beach at least once
  • Reopen my Etsy shop
  • Relax and enjoy life

So here are some photos I think are inspirational:

Lack of Blog Posts

Dear Blogosphere,

My deepest apologies for the lack of updating lately. I had foot surgery 3 weeks ago and have been feeling terrible lately. Having your foot reconstructed is not exactly my idea of the best way to kick off summer break. Though luckily in the past couple of days I have been feeling much better. I'll do my best to try and update more often.

Sincerely,
Brigitte

The Uniform Project

For The Uniform Project, Sheena Matheiken is wearing the same dress every day for an entire year. Each day, she "reinvents the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments".






The project began in May of 2009. Today is day 329. As you can see Sheena is extremely talented at accessorizing her LBD!

What I'm Loving Right Now

Lately I've been inspired by the wonderful combination of vintage and modern coming together. When I stumbled upon the J. Crew catalog featuring Molly-Hanna I found her amazing accessories.

My favorite piece of hers being Garden Treasures. Take a look:




I am absolutely in love! It's absolutely gorgeous, but the price...not so much.

I'm longing for summer

I know it's still a bit away, but I'm really longing for summertime.



Almost there!

The new layout is almost completely finished! huzzzah!

Now just to put the finishing touches!

What do you think?

Under Construction

One of my gripes with this blog (other than me being terrible at updating-sorry!) is the layout. So I'll be working on it for the next couple of days.

I'll try to update here and there, though check the twitter for better updates:

Any recommendations on what I should do with the layout?

Currently Obsessing Over

Currently I have been obsessing over the movie Julie & Julia. Maybe it's all the delicious looking food in it but the movie is absolutely adorable. I've been dying to use my copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking but I feel that the recipes are a little too fancy for everyday use. But I really can't wait to start whipping up some delicious food.


Also the idea of blogging about cooking your way through Julia Child's cookbook is awesome, I wish I had determination like that.

Happy New Year

I know I'm a couple of days late on this, and I apologize for the hiatus, but Happy New Year!

2009 was a good year but I feel 2010 will be a better year because:


  • Last year of actual classes for me
  • Beginning of clinical rotations
  • One year closer to graduating!
  • I hope to use my brand new Holga lots and lots (boyfriend got it for me for Christmas!)
  • Hope to start my etsy shop
  • Hope to be more muscially involved:
    • I will never to go 8 months without touching my violin
    • I want to pick up my ukulele more often
    • I want to pick up my guitar more often so it's not just sitting in the corner all lonesome

Here's to 2010!
