Craigslist Finds

The genius DIYer & interior designer from Little Green Notebook suggested searching through Craigslist's furniture section for cheap fixer uppers. I heeded her advice, and it only took me one city and 20 minutes to find multiple things I would love to own! They might need a little tlc, but the bare bones of these vintage pieces can't be beat. Try it yourself!

(I want this piece SO bad, but have no where to put it)

Julie Cate Photography

Julie is an amazingly sweet and talented photographer who has captured all the moments of my sisters' engagement, wedding and newborn baby! I particularly love the airy aesthetic her photos have, as well as her gravitation towards neutral/white color palettes!

Poppies For Grace

My niece's first birthday is coming up in a few months so I did a little scrolling around the web today for party decorations, and came across this awesome online store, Poppies For Grace!

They sell all the decorations you would need to create an adorable party like the one shown below! I love the flamingo theme...perfect for a little Floridian.

Plus, just a few of their cute party ware and accessories featured below.

Around The Web No.40

Instagram accounts to unfollow in 2016, via The Man Repeller.

Etsy is capitalizing on Kanye's crazy twitter rant and I am totally into it. Check out some merchandise here.

This aerobics-cat calendar cracked me up!

10 viral sensations talk about life after internet fame. Fascinating. 

And I just love everything Maja Malou Lyse (aka BoothBitch) does and her blog is no exception.

Your Body, Her Body

How to talk to your daughter about her body 
Step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.
Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.
If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:
“You look so healthy!” is a great one.
Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”
“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”
Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.
Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.
Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.
Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.
Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.
Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.
Teach your daughter how to cook kale.
Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.
Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.
Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
