zooey crocheting on the new girl. my life is complete right now.

my love shack

sooo Im obviously obsessed with crochet hearts. but in other news, I wanted to make a duvet cover like this one but the ruffles and no sewing machine just seemed like too much work. so instead I did a NO SEW duvet. I went and bought two coy sheets from good will dolla ninety nine. washed and bleached them (twice), then I laid them on the ground and used my fabric glue and glued the edges together. put my comforter in and for the top i make little holes and used pieces of felt to make bows to keep it closed. 
THEEEENNN I made about 16 little red hearts and glued them on to my new hand made duvet cover and bam love shack. 
My new little heart set up in my room is a dreamy and romantic place for me, my laptop and my crocheting.

I do

These are the acoustic waves of a couple saying “I do.” I’m pretty sure the linguist in me just died from the awesomeness of this.

my heart.

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
-Bob Marley

lana del rey nails

 I'm newly obsessed with Lana Del Rey and her nail art game is on point. 
and people that know me know that nail art is one of my top 10 loves.
I started off with a nudeish brown color- sally hansen quick sand to be exact.

took my thin brush red nail polish and made two lines from the top of the nail to the sides, then I colored in the top part.
(if you are not nail art skilled like myself I suggest maybe using tape and laying the tape from the middle point to the sides then coloring in it, and wait till the polish IS COMPLETELY DRY or else your lines will get all smudgy when you pull the tape off.)

I love them, they look saucy.

on repeat.

Blue jeans, White shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like James Dean, for sure
You so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favorite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time

Big dreams, gangster
Said you had to leave to start your life over
I was like: “no please, stay here,”
We don’t need no money we can make it all work
But he headed out on Sunday, said he’d come home Monday
I stayed up waitin’, anticipatin’ and pacin’ but he was
Chasing paper
“Caught up in the game” that was the last I heard

I will love you till the end of time

I would wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time

You went out every night
And baby that’s alright
I told you that no matter what you did I’d be by your side
Cause Ima ride or die
Whether you fail or fly
Well shit, at least you tried.
But when you walked out that door, a piece of me died
I told you I wanted more-but that’s not what I had in mind
I just want it like before
We were dancin’ all night
Then they took you away- stole you out of my life
You just need to remember….

Will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that your mine
Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember
I will love you till the end of time

diy cute smiley sweater!

My bestest friend sent me this adorable smiley face sweater she saw on etsy. only one issue 24$ for a sweatshirt, I am a forever 21 and buffalo exchange shopper. I rarely spend over 20$ on one article of clothing.

 So the nest best thing is... MAKING IT!
For my birthday my roommate and I took a trip to flagstaff to go snowboarding, there wasn't any snow but at least we got to do some thrifting and exploring. I found a yellow sweatshirt for 4$!!!!!
I took the sweatshirt cut off the neck part to make it slouchy, painted on a smiley face with some paint ( I used acrylic because we didn't have any fabric paint in the house) let it dry, then wear!

cute tin candle holder

so I've been obesessed with and I now have a whole folder of crafts I MUST make. starting with this one I saw made by charlotte hupfield ceramics 
took me like 10 minuets to make.
1. get a can, eat the yummyness inside the can.
2.Peel the label off, wash the can out, fill it with water and put it in the freezer
3. wait.. until completely frozen. I didn't wait, and when I was making the holes in it water went everywhere. so seriously wait.
4. after the water is frozen out line the shapes you want to make ( I used glittery nail polish to draw it on) 
5. take a hammer and nail and make little connect the dots to get what you want on the can.

and voila! new cute tin can candle holder thingy!

 I spray painted mine gold because silver isn't really my color.
