i finally gave in & bought the fjallraven backpack i've had my eye on for about two years. i found this new one on e-bay, so it was a little bit cheaper. it came in the mail on the first day of school this semester (monday), so i wore it to celebrate going back. it's completely amazing & so worth the money. i really love it : )i decided i needed a pencil case for school, so i sewed this one last saturday using a vintage zipper from my collection & retro-replica fabric. i think it's quite cute.

on my last coffee shop outing, i stopped by my favorite vintage clothing shop & bought this top for five bucks. i like it because it's nice & long. (i fail at outfit posts! haha.)shauna & stephen from something's hiding in here were featured in martha stewart's magazine! i was so excited for them, so i bought a copy of the magazine. (i do not support martha stewart, so this was a rare exception so i can support bloggers.)i was given an award from missa!! thank you! it's the versatile blogger award & i have to tell 7 things about myself. so here it goes:
1. when i say "i know you," what i mean is "i love you"
2. i want to make a zine
3. i'm twenty-three & don't have a driver's licence, ergo i take public transportation everywhere
4. cottage cheese loaf is my favorite comfort food dish
5. i don't drink
6. i absolutely love getting mail. i literally run to the mail box if i see that the mailperson has gone by
7. this is my favorite song at the moment

i tag the following people who i am replying to!


shelbyisms: awww : ) thanks shelby. i think everyone should make those little cards & leave them for people.

hellomissa: you would take a photo next to it! haha. & i bought the vintage lace seam binding at the thrift store, but you can buy it at hancocks i believe. but it won't be vintage. i may have some extra, but i think i sold it all.

dandelionkisses: yes! make some kindness cards! it's kind of awesome - like you are on a secret mission of kindness. lol.

brynna: it was a "me" day for sure. i need more of those i think.

sarah~mechelle: haha yes! first step is to find "your" coffee shop. & you simply must find somewhere you can get white mochas! they are kind of the coffee with the most calories, but they are so good!


  1. you made my day when you said you read my blog! :)
    thank youu.
    ohh& im in love with your cardigan!

  2. your pencil case is adorable!! :)

  3. i love cardigans! they are very convenient to wear in every season. o^_^o

  4. lovely top and lovely backpack!

    ahhh. you have no idea how glad i am that i am not the only over-eighteener i know who doesn't drive. people always look at me crosseyed for it. especially since it's so hard to get around phoenix without a car.
    luckily i have parents and friends who are willing to give me rides etc.

    hope you're having a lovely day!

  5. That backpack is pretty rad, I must say. Definitely significantly more awesome than my lame one at least. And that's great that you were able to find it on ebay for a bargain too! Yay. :D I really like the little stars pattern on your shirt, too. And I kind of wish I didn't have to go through all the driving business, but unfortunately I live in the middle of nowhere so that's not really possible. :P

  6. That top is adorable. I love winter - it allows for so many lovely layers and things. I'll sometimes try to layer things in the summer, but by the end of the day most of those layers are usually discarded and stashed in the back seat of the car. ;_;

  7. hello! just thought i'd stop by and say how much i enjoy your blog!
