To do list

I've been super busy this week working on pretty-fying my bedroom (simple goal numbero uno!). It's still got a long way's to go, but I'm really excited with the way it's turning out. Can't wait to post before and after photo's.

To-do list for this evening:
1) Put up pictures.
2) Make some tasty dinner.
3) Write my penpal.
4) Make a pair of earrings.

It's only 6pm, so I feel this list is completely do-able, as long as I don't get distracted by the television. Hehe! I also finally bought and set up my new webcam! Many new pictures to come!! Happy Saturday. xo, jenn

4 Simple Goals

I've missed out on alot in my blogging community during the past few months, but one post that I caught and really enjoyed was Elsie Flannigan's 4 Simple Goals post. And I decided to play along!

1) Create the prettiest bedroom sancuary.I generally spend a lot of time in my bedroom, and my newest bedroom is definitely going to be a design challenge! It lacks a closet and is very tiny. And I have ALOT of stuff. It will take craftiness to create a space that is pretty, as well as functionable! 2) Eat more fruits and vegetables. With all my moving around this summer, I will not deny that my diet has become, uh, bad. Lots of taco bell and other quick fixes. I want to eat healthier so I have the energy needed to live every day to it's fullest! 3) Purchase a bike. This is an important one- I've wanted a bike for years, and since my new job requires me to stay fit, it's the perfect time to by one! I can ride my bike to and from work (or even to the corner store) and simutaneously exercise and save the planet (two for one!) 4) Make a stylish camera bag. Last Christmas I got a snazzy new camera, that I love, but I don't use it. My excuse? I don't have a camera bag... Silly right? And because I'm stubborn, I haven't wanted to spend money on some boring camera bag- I want a pretty one. Good thing I went to Style School!

Today was a good day. I had an AHmazing delicious breakfast with the roomie at Cracker Barrel. Then my wonderful parents and sister visited from Pennsylvania, and I treated us all for dinner at the new restaurant I work at. And afterwards, roomie and I went shopping! Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Definitely! xo, jenn

New hair!

Yesterday I treated myself to new hair color. For the past 9 months or so, I've been sporting multi-tonal hair... cool light brown on top, and firey orange underneath. It was fun while it lasted, but over time it's become too much to keep up and I needed to freshen up. I'm loving my new, all-over, chocolate brown!! I feel so dark and sultry... however, I am still a dork, as you can tell be the photo's. ;)

Hope you're having a beutiful week! xo, jenn

Artist Spotlight

Good morning! It's time for another Artist Spotlight! I still plan on making this a regular Monday post, however I was just too tired last night to get to it. Also, I'll be changing the look of this post a little bit. Instead of scouring youtube for the particular song I want (which can be difficult sometimes since I like abstract artists as well as mainstream), I'm going to make a mini playlist!!

Today I'm featuring Paper Route. I discovered them at a Paramore concert I went to last December in Berlin, bought their album, forgot about it, then rediscovered it as I was driving around my sister's car one particularly pretty summer day(she bought the album too)! Since then, they've been a regular rotation in my music selections. I especially enjoy "Dance On Our Graves." I hope you enjoy them!

a new chapter

There is so much to say, I don't even know where to begin...

In my last post, I expressed excitment over my upcoming summer and all the wonderful things I had planned. Now summer is over, and I have to admit that it definitely was an adventure! So many things happened! I helped my family move, fell in love, left Germany, visited tons of family and friends, went tubing a GAZILLION times, watched my sister get married to a wonderful man, drove across the United States, moved some more, then rocked out at Dia De Los Toadies! Now I'm working to catch up and get settled in my brand new home. There are boxes EVERYWHERE, and I'm so happy to start this new chapter here in Watertown, NY. It's definitely going to be another adventure, I'm sure of it.

I'll be posting photo's and highlights, as well as working to give my blog a much needed facelift. Thanks for sticking around. ♥
