I really like how unfussy this little island is, and it's even on wheels! Great for making some more storage, give some durability for a workspace and without having to sacrifice flexibility in a smaller kitchen. If you follow the link, there are a ton of pictures that might inspire you for your next kitchen!

Amazing light and places to put things. I would love somewhere to work like this, might even be inspired to work more and create more! Now if it had a set aside layout table for drawing and painting, it would be perfect...

I love this little coffee bar for the home. So cozy for all your daily things and for guests! I would probably include it for tea and the like too if I could have the room for something like this. Perhaps in my next home I could make a space for it!

I've posted wallets previously before by Portel, but now that I've seen this, I don't know which one I like better! I love the simple access to the phone, rather than having to open it up. One drawback is having all the cards on the outside. In either case, both options offer me, the girl who hates purses, one convenient way to put it all in one place.

There is nothing more I like than a good read by the fireplace. Seriously, I do not read enough anymore as an adult. I love escaping into another world and losing myself in reading. The day was kind of strange and rough, so tonight is a night where I'm going now to curl up in bed and fall asleep reading - then my husband will have to quietly remove my glasses, stow my book and turn off my lamp - guess it isn't all bad!
Today was my first day back to the gym in a while. It was a bit rough, but I needed to do it, to start moving again and to do something for me. It's been a crazy time lately, with work and I'm stressed out and running a bit thin. This picture reminds me that I want that focus again on my health, mentally and physically.

The National Geographic Photo Contest is still open until November 30, for those who are interested. I love looking at these every year, so many interesting and amazing photos that come out in spades for this competition! I just pulled a few of the ones that I liked so far, I hope that one day I can compete in this too!

Amazing gothic styled pieces that I stumbled upon. I'm not into super intricate things so this caught my eye. Always have been attracted to bird, wings and feather themes...something about flying, floating and being lighter than air, at least for a little bit.

The more I think about it, the more that I want to buy a sewing machine and learn how to make some of these things. Maybe even branch out to learn how to make some of my basic clothes! Here is a simple tutorial for zippered bags, following the link. I'm thinking I could do this by hand, and have cases for my pencils and markers, and a new updated one for my makeup!

I like to browse polyvore to just see what people think up. This is a simpe outfit that combines some of my favourite colour combination, blue and orange! Haven't bought anything orange yet, but thinking of a statement bag, like this satchel.

Oh, the things that I would love to add to my wardrobe...! Also, I will need to get back on the health wagon before I go shopping for more clothes! I have been quite lethargic since coming back from Europe and need to really get moving!

Beautiful, I love the idea of having natural light as part of your closet space. Those doors are fantastic, and just imagine being able to get dressed and do your makeup in a space like this! For this, it was a conversion of a room into a closet space.

Seems so easy to do, I may have to do this over the Christmas holidays when we get our wedding pictures back! I do have a ton of canvas sitting unused in my closet! Instructions following the link.

Lately I've been trying to wash my hair less often, given how dry and cold the climate is here. The next step is figuring out how to style it and make it look good! Often I'm too lazy and leave it straight, but I've got to try new styles more often!
