i would like to snuggle in this blanket and not go out for quite some time
FRIDAY AFTERNOONS:This term, my weekly supervisions are on a Friday at 1pm. This means that my week revolves around one hour (or usually two) of intense one-on-one contact time with my supervisor. After a supervision my brain always hurts so much, and I usually feel mentally drained but also weirdly energetic (?). I usually go to the gym straight after supervisions to release energy, but I’ve also found that the time following a supervision is great for organising the week to come. I had a brand new Moleskine delivered today (yay!), so I spent time drawing out a timetable for next week & I’m gradually filling it in. My week may seem quite empty at the moment, but I usually fill each day in as I go through the week, informed with an overall view of what I need to get done by the end of the week. It may seem unorganised to do this, but my degree is quite self-motivated with hardly any contact time or relevant lectures, so organising my days as I go along works for me. Also: some things here happen very last minute, and I wouldn’t like to tightly pack my schedule early on in the week only to have to change it later. I’m a bit of a perfectionist and would hate to scribble stuff out. But I can tell you something: most of that week from 8am-9pm will be filled in with red: WORK TIME. Thank goodness I love my degree. -Sarah
Homemade Peppermint Foot Cream I originally found this recipe at Frugally Sustainable and I fell in love with it the first time I used it. It wasn't just the great peppermint smell, but it was what it did to my feet. For the last several years my feet have taken quite a beating. They were rough, dry, cracking, and had some kind of fungus that would not go away no matter what I put on them! This cream is AmAzInG!! I now have my soft, non fungus feet back! Don't worry, I won't
I like the spiderman face idea. this might be cool with batman on bottom (but yellow background and details described earlier), spiderman in middle (would yellow eyes be too weird?) and superman top (emblem could go on top or side for superman). not quite so tall probably more low to the ground/flatter cakes..
1850 - I find this image heartrending. The young mother in her Sunday best, carefully holding the body of her dead baby. You have to bear in mind that photography was not very advanced at this time – she would have been required to hold that pose without moving for quite some time.
Really like the mis-matched chairs and modern lighting. I've been wanting to do this for quite some time!
I like this. Would have to grow my hair out quite a bit, though. Not sure I could make it through that...

Even though my first time in Paris was not so great I think I would like to go back again and give it another go... if nothing else I can go back to the Louvre.
ANLCI Fight for Literacy | The Inspiration Room I really like this campaign. My only fear is that whether you can read or not, many don't stop and read ads anymore unless they are really different, especially when they look very typical, like these. I know the point is to make it look like an average ad, but it slightly works against it. However, some popped headlines are good choices to capture some attention as they stand out not quite fitting the ad.
I've been looking for the right curling iron for quite some time and I think this might be it! Its lightweight construction would make
Where the Heart is
I like to keep my makeup pretty simple when I go out, and this neutral palette would make for the perfect dose of shimmer.
I would like to go sit in this place for the whole weekend.
Some days you'll feel sad without knowing why already been through that stage i can convince the mind at times in the far past to not remember but the heart never let you go and you would always be there and now i know i cant get over you not in this life time
I'm in lovee. If I could go out in public like this (& not be stared at like a weirdo) I soooo would.
IVE BEEN WANTING TO DO THIS FOR SO LONG X3 this is curieux! I've been wanting to do the glass legs with liquid in them for the LONGEST time and I've just drawn it out. So I drew an alien girl. I didn't have much at a backstory because I'm not good at backstory but I thought that the liquid in her legs and arms would be like how air is to us :3. (Laurel Bresser)

This is the creamiest rice pudding ever! It’s so rich and the flavors are absolutely amazing!! I’m going to be honest, up until a few months ago, rice pudding just really freaked me out. Every time I would try it because I wanted to like it for some reason? I would hate the texture of... Read More »
Restoring teak furniture What You Need: Rubber Gloves Two Brushes Medium Grit Sandpaper Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water Teak Oil Polyurethane Instructions: Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance. Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible. Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores. Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood. Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture. Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood. MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY: How To Care For Teak Furniture
This is not going to be a popular answer, but even if I have a lot of respect for someone like Philippe Starck, the Juicy Salif is probably what made people think that design is some kind of art, and not something that must actually be used and experienced. It's made out of the wrong materials, very uncomfortable to use, and does the job quite badly (the juice goes everywhere but into the glass).
As much as it hurts to say this, I am realizing it is time to let go of some that I thought we would be friends for life. We have grown apart and doesn't seem like we are ever going to find the time to catch up or keep up with each other.. I wish you and your families the best. You were always such a great friend, moving was a hard decision but one I am glad I made.
Let's be honest... Only like 2% of girls wear high heels and girly dresses to school. The rest of us wants to feel comfortable bc we go to study and even against our will . But at the same time we want to look pretty. This outfit is some I would wear for those days.

Someday I would love to have some time to do some quilting. This is something I would like to start with.
I’m so excited for the cool evenings of fall! It means I get to bust out my boots and leggings again. I have missed them all summer long. This year I thought I would try my hand at crocheting some boot cuffs to go with my boots and leggings, because in the fall/winter it’s all …
