Monday Motivation.

I'm still alive, sort of...!

I still have seven more work days until my first day off for the month of April. If I haven't responded to your emails, I apologize in advance!

Currently, my hair looks like this (see image below)! This is my "I am really tired/exhausted" hair style that I have been sporting most evenings. Sexy, I know! 

I will probably be somewhat MIA for the next few days ... Elle & I have a special surprise that we are working on right. If all goes as planned, it will be launched on Wednesday! Eeeek, time is running out! 

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

Guest Post ... Elle from My Dearest Friend.

Hello everyone! My name is Elle and you lovely webmistress has graciously allowed me to write a quick little  blogger highlight so that you all can get to know me and my blog! Now, if you'll recall, Chelsea and I were partnered up for the Bigs and Littles Network, and she was so sweet, kind, and supportive. I honestly learned so many amazing little blogger tips that I hadn't even thought about or considered before meeting her. And even though our partnership for the network has finished, we still email back and forth every week which I love! So, when she proposed writing a blogger highlight, I felt so touched and excited. I hope you all enjoy!

1. I LOVE Chatelaine magazine. Love. Love. If you have never heard of Chatelaine, it is a Canadian lifestyle magazine that I had always thought was geared toward a mature woman, but let me tell you... Chatelaine has changes so much. It's been modernized and stylized to perfection so that it appeals to a younger audience like myself. They are currently celebrating their 85th anniversary!

 2. I collect tins! It started off with that olive green tea tin you see in the picture above and it has slowly grown to contain a variety of vintage tea tins. That tin in particular is from the 1870s England! Now, I really love doing research on where the tea tins were from and what was going on in history during that time. It's a fun hobby!

3. Style! I love it. Love. It. It is the majority of what I blog about, so it helps, haha. I specifically love street style. I am so inspired by seeing how other girls style certain pieces in their wardrobe and finding an affordable option that I can rock. Most recently I've started writing a feature on Style Clashes, looking at how different styles, that should clash, actually work beautifully together! You can check out the first post here!

World Traveller

4. Should I be ashamed to say it's one of my favourite things to do? No! Haha, I love imagining things, new creations for the blog, dreaming up things for my shop (coming soon!), writing stories in my spare time, sketching, thinking up design and home decor ideas.... it goes on as I'm sure you all can relate to. I love using creativity as much as I can which led me to create the Dear Parcels Monthly Swap on my blog! It's a really great way to promote blogs, meet some wonderful new friends, AND get creative with cool monthly prompts! I'm so excited about it.

5. I make silly faces... A LOT. It's just apart of my quirk personality. I love smiling and laughing, so if I can make others laugh and smile it feels so amazing. And so I make faces randomly, haha. 

Alrighty, I hope you all enjoyed learning a little more about me! I would love to get to know each and every single one of you so feel free to shoot me an email or visit me over at My Dearest Friend! I'm always looking for guest bloggers so if you've been looking to give it a try, please email me! If you like to sign up for the Dear Parcels May Swap click here! I hope you're all having a lovely week!

Thanks Elle for taking over my blog today!! 
I hope you all take a few minutes to check out Elle's lovely blog, My Dearest Friend!

Wanderlust: Retreats & Resorts.

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

All this work and no play is really making me want to go on vacation to some place tropical where I can relax. Looking that these four images above doesn't make this urge any easier. 

The last vacation I took was to Hawaii with my family back in 2008. I think I am a little over due for one! As much as I would love to go away, we have a busy summer coming up, so I know it wont happen. 

This December, I am also going to be thirty years-old. Eeeek I know! Part of me would love to go away and do something special for it. My boyfriend will also be turning thirty about a month after I do, so I was thinking that going away sometime in between would be perfect. If all works out, I would really love to go back to Hawaii. Maybe even ring in the new year there. 

* Boyfriend, if you are reading this post ... hint hint! *

You're Getting By.

I was recently contacted by the folks at Happify. The idea behind the website is that they are turning the latest innovations in the science of happiness into fun activities and games that help you lead a more fulfilling life.

Overall, I consider myself a "happy" person, but over the past few months, I have been feeling that I could be a lot happier than I am. Tonight, I took this quiz/assessment about my happiness. I received a score of 54.

Along with the score was this note:
You're Getting By
... but you could be embracing life and living with more optimism, less stress, and more confidence on a regular basis.
Yikes! This hit rather close to home because its 100% accurate. 

If you're new'ish to my blog, at the end of December, I was finding myself very angry and frustrated all the time. I was also starting to curse like a sailor. It was bad, really bad. The largest reason for my behavior was because I was tired and not taking enough time for myself. In January, I decided it was time for some change. Step one -- stop going to bed super late. Going to bed at 1 or 2 am, then waking up 6 hours later doesn't work for me. Step two -- I bought a book about happiness: The Happiness Project. I am a slow reader, so I still have a few more chapters to read, but from what I have read, I absolutely love this book. 

Part of my resolutions for 2013 is to leave a healthier and happier life. So, when I had the opportunity to be a pioneer of this great new website, I jumped on the opportunity. What have I got to loose? Nothing.

I only started using the website this week, but I am really looking forward to learning some life-changing habits to help me better embrace life, and to live my life with more optimism, less stress and a lot more confidence!

Weekly Wrap-Up.

I am a little tarty on my weekly wrap-up(s). Life has been very busy with work and not a lot interesting has been happening around here. I am on day twenty-one of working straight with no days off. I still have another twelve days to go. I am almost there! 

Today while driving home, I almost got into a car accident. Thankfully, I didn't. I was in the right-hand lane and the vehicle in font of me went to parallel park, so I decided I would change lanes. I checked my mirror and did a shoulder check, no vehicle so I signaled and started to go into the left-hand lane. Next thing I knew this car went speeding past me - what the heck! I am pretty sure he didn't want to slow down for me, so instead he sped up and went for it. Scared the crap out of me! I am grateful nothing bad happened.

Favorite Snapshots:
+ Found a few friends hanging around work today.
+ Random selfie of yours truly.
+ My favorite salad with some chicken, delicious! 
+ Taking a photo of D trying to get a photo of Django.

3 Tricks: Hack Your iPhone.

If you're like me, I love learning new tricks about my iPhone. I stumbled upon these three tricks the other day from the Hack College website; they are aren't well known but they are pretty amazing! 

1. Make a passcode on your iPhone with as many numbers as you want. 

2. Put your iPhone on airplane mode when waiting for it to charge. It will charge twice as fast. 

3. Set custom vibration patterns on your phone.

They go into more details about these tricks on their YouTube video and on their website; you can view the video on their YouTube channel here, and/or on their website, here

What's your favorite trick out of the three? Mine is definitely # 2 -- I am always playing around with my iPhone, so I can blast through the battery life pretty quickly in a few hours. I am also too cheap/lazy to go buy a second charger for my vehicle or at work, so I always have to rely on charging my phone when I get home. Sometimes I am not home for very long before going out again, so this trick will be a HUGE help for me!

"Hi Life Unpublished readers! My name is Amy & I blog over at Love & Hot Chocolate. I started this blog when I found out some bad news - my boyfriend now fiancé was deploying to overseas to Afghanistan for a whole year. {I found it comforting when I met other lady bloggers who have experienced & are experiencing deployment because they understood me and were easy to talk to. I've also met other lady bloggers who have turned out to be such great friends!} Fortunately he is home safe, and we are now engaged and anxiously waiting for our wedding day in May!

"I'm a twenty-something newlywed blogger with newly transplanted Texan roots. I currently call Albany, New York home. I'm a Registered Nurse by day, well sometimes by night as well. In Texas I worked on an oncology unit and absolutely fell in love with bed side nursing. In my spare time you can find me sipping an iced coffee, exploring the streets of Albany with my Canon and a pair of Ray Bans. I love the eclectic things in life and enjoy finding great vintage steals and DIY decorating. My current DIY project is an herb garden made out of a pallet. I can't wait for the weather to warm up around here so that I can start the staining process. I love the beauty and the new possibilities of the Northeast. Sometimes expanding past what you know can be the best thing in life. We are enjoying the ride so far.

PicTapGo Picks - I got featured!

So beyond stoked that one of my photos got featured on the PicTapGo blog!!! Since this app came out, it has been my top favorite photo editing app. I rarely use any other photo editing app. Anyways ... if you don't already have it, you must look into getting it! It's truly amazing and well worth every penny spent! I wrote a quick blurb about my love for this app back in February, or you can visit their website to learn more.

Guest Post ... Laurie from The Brotherton's.

Hey hey! I'm so excited Chelsea asked me to introduce myself to you. I'm Laurie Brotherton. My better half is Mitch. We have two fur babies, Kodi & Maggie. They fill our hearts with so much joy & take up most of our time. Now that spring is in full swing here, we can be found outside on the lake, grilling out or hiking the mountains of northern georgia, where we currently live.

I'm returning to school this fall to study photography. My cousin was in a fatal car wreck last month & ever since then I've realized what's truly important in life. That life is too short to be wasted on things other than your passion. So back to school for me & to say that I'm excited about it would be an understatement. I can't wait to learn more about the art of photography, lighting & poses. If you ask M, he would make a stab at my asian blood, & say something like "you're asian side comes out when you take pictures"or "you look like a tourist". Yeah, yeah, thanks babe. Yes, I love my camera & capturing whatever I can with it. 

I'm no pro, please don't think that I know what I'm doing, cause I don't -- that's why I'm going back to school. But I have been asked what camera I use & my shooting process {which flatters me greatly}.

I use a Canon Rebel T2i for all my pictures. I have no ill words for it. I love this camera. I hope in a couple years I'll be able to upgrade to a full frame camera like this beauty. I have the standard 18-55mm lens that I use rarely. My favorite lens to use is my 50mm lens. It has a low aperture, so it's great for indoor shooting & photos of products. Because my fantasies aren't real & there isn't a photographer that follows us around, whenever M & I take pictures we have to use a tripod. We probably use this 90% of the time for our picture a day project. I have a camera bag insert that fits perfect in all of my medium to large purses.

From experience {& as a reminder I'm not a pro. these are tips from my personal past experiences} the more natural lighting the better.  Natural light gives off a cleaner light that looks fresh & things don't turn out yellow. Take lots of pictures. As a kid I played basketball. My dad coached me for a few years & he always told me to take lots of shots. Even if I missed most of them, the more I took the more likely I'd score. So I carried that over to picture taking -- the more you take, the more likely there's going to be a goood one. So be sure to take your camera with you when you leave the house. Don't be afraid to pull it out anywhere. Be prepared to be disappointed. Once I wrote all the things I thought I needed to know to capture those breathtaking photos on an index card & carried it around with me. I changed all my settings to the "correct" points but nothing turned out like they were supposed to. Let's say I was bummed. But that leads me to my next point -- learn what works for you. I've yet to master my camera, but what I do know how use properly, I use that as an advantage. & most importantly, find your theme. If you find someone's pictures you like, you may notice all their pictures have a similar feel to them. This is something I'm still working on. It's not something you can establish other night & I hope as I continue to learn I'll be able to find my niche.

Thank you so much Chelsea for asking to share with your readers. I hope this was helpful to many. I'd love to meet you, so please stop by & say hello!

Recipe // Breakfast Smoothie.

Oatmeal + triple berry smoothie = absolutely delicious! For a quick breakfast in the morning, I have been making a lot of these breakfast smoothies. Another great thing is that these smoothies are full of healthy things, and let's face it, we all need some healthiness in our lives! I have been playing around with my recipe lately, mixing up a few different recipes that I have found. 


1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup low-fat yogurt
1 tsp flax seeds
1 cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
1 cup ice
1 cup milk


1. Place quick oats and flax seeds in a dry blender. Blend until oats are ground into a fine powder. This step is a must!!

2. Add the yogurt, ice, mixed berries and milk.

3. Cover and blend until smooth and creamy. 

To mix things up a bit this morning, I added 1/2 cup of spinach to my smoothie. I was hesitant about the first few spoonful's, but once I got over the idea of having spinach in my smoothie, it was actually really good. To be honest, I couldn't really taste it, and neither could my boyfriend. To sweeten it up, I also added a spoonful of honey. 

What's your favorite type of smoothie?

"My name is Lauren, some call me Lo. I blog about my personal style, fashion trends, D.I.Y's, and my Etsy shop Mintgem! One weird thing about me is I have a strange obsession with the TV show Storage Wars, and secretly wish I could be on it."

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

I am a bit (okay, a lot!) behind on reading a lot of the blogs I follow via bloglovin', and as I begin to read through all these unread posts this evening, I have been picking up on a lot of negativity that has been going on in blog-land. To be honest, I really haven't a clue what has gone down, and I would like to keep it that way. 

What I do know is that Erin's post yesterday inspired me, so I thought I would play along. Plus I don't always share that much personal information about myself and my life on my blog, so I thought this would be a great opportunity!

The Good

+ I have never cheated on a significant other.
+ I have never smoked a cigarette and have never done any drugs.
+ I have never done anything illegal.
+ I am always putting the ones I love before myself.
+ I am very reliable and always follow through with my promises.

The Bad

+ I have an addiction to soda pop, specifically coke.
+ I am an over-thinker. It's not a good thing and often gets me into too much trouble!
+ I have a short-term memory. Unless you have my undivided attention, I will forget.
+ I am very lazy with any form of exercise.
+ I don't eat as healthy as I could/should.

The Ugly

+ I don't shower every day. I do shower every other day.
+ I will sometimes wear the same pair of socks twice.
+ I sometimes self-injure myself when I am very stressed out. Nothing serious.
+ I curse way too much other other drivers. Most of the time they deserve it.
+ I have zero patience for bicycles on the road. I say that because they DO NOT follow the rules of the road.

In a nutshell, that is me ... the god, the bad, and the ugly! Coming up with this list was a lot tougher than I thought it would be. It honestly took me over an hour to write all of this. Anyways, I challenge you to do the same and link up with Erin!

New look...!

Notice anything different on the blog? 

Maybe a new header image, welcome image, widget boxes, and link colors! I decided tonight that I would play around with a new header design (again!) and one thing led to another....

I think I am liking these changes though -- hopefully they will stick around for longer than a month. Anways, with it being spring, its the perfect opportunity to do some spring cleaning on the blog. I still want to clean up a few of my pages, and maybe redo my blog button, but will I save that for another night. 

What do you think of the new'ish design? Yay or Nay?

Today I am linking up with:

Weekly Wrap-Up.

Work, work and some more work ... that is how I spent my weekend. For the most part, my work weekend was fairly uneventful. The best part was walking into my office Sunday morning and finding a large gift bag full of cookies and bottles of wine. While I knew the bag wasn't for me, I was determined to score myself a few cookies. When the rightful owner of the bag showed up, I told him there was a fee for holding onto his gift bag and ended up with one of the small bags full of cookies. SWEET! They were delicious and didn't last very long.

Favorite Snapshot: 
+ Came home after work on Sunday to find some cool clouds across the ocean.

Favorite Posts:
+ Aerial Abs: Side Plank Push-Up by Silly Grrrl.
+ Ab Workout by Shine or Set.

Recipes I Pinned/Want to try:
+ Quick Skillet Potatoes by Katherines Corner.
+ Coriander Chicken Kebabs by Cooking Classy.
+ Skinny Lasagna by ABpetite.
+ Palo Pulled Pork Pizza by Popular Palo.
+ Gourmet Grilled Cheese by Rouge & Whimsy.

Weekly Dinner Menu:
+ Monday: Chicken, potatoes and salad.
+ Tuesday: Sushi.
+ Wednesday: Leftovers - Roast Beef, roast beef and yorkshire pudding. 
+ Thursday: A&W hamburger and fries.
+ Friday: Chicken Alfredo Pasta.
+ Saturday: Leftovers - Chicken Alfredo Pasta.
+ Sunday: Leftovers - Chicken Alfredo Pasta.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Friday's Letters.

Dear friday, I am so happy that you are here. Only two more days of work, then I get to start week number 2 of working seven days/week. Dear raincouver, I do not like this rainy weather! Last weekend was so beautiful, I even got to wear shorts and sandals, and now ... rain, rain and more rain. Dear chiropractor, ouch! I feel much better having my bones put back into place, but the headache I get afterwards, ughhh. Last night I went to bed at 9:30 pm because my head and body hurt too much. Dear myself, you need to keep going to bed early so that you don't get over exhausted with this crazy work schedule. Yes that means going to bed every night, before 10:00 pm! Dear eyesight, I am a little disappointed that you have gotten worse. Now I have to go and buy new glasses and sunglasses -- lame!!! Dear taxes, ohh I wish I could keep putting you off, but I am determined to submit you this weekend so that I can get some money back. Maybe I will put it towards the new lenses I need. Dear new followers, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and follow my blog! I promise I will reply to all of your comments, it may take me a day or two because of my crazy work schedule right now. Dear coca-cola, I don't know what I would do without you right now. My employer has noticed that I work so much better in the afternoons after having a can of you that they have offered to buy me a case for this month. Oh dear! 

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! See ya on Monday!

This or That: Pink Dress.

The boyfriend's brother is getting married this summer and I have yet to decide what style of dress I want to wear. I honestly haven't been to many weddings, so I really have no idea what dress would be more appropriate? The wedding is at the end of July, so I still have lots of time to decide, but I don't want to leave it to the last minute. Part of me would love a simple black dress, but I think a pink dress would be more fun?!

Suggestions? Thoughts?
