washi tape

Washi tape, basically Japanese masking tape made pretty, can be used for a variety of different purposes. Here are some of my favorite:

Organize your daily planner by coordinating tape with important activities

 Decorate a simple frame to add a touch of personality

Take a vase to the next level, simple and easy but speaks volumes

Make personal cards or decorate a plain notebook
found via pinterest

A few places you can find washi tape...

What creative ways have you used washi tape before??

Life Lately

I'm on my way to the Apostle Islands in northern Minnesota right now, and will be out of Internet access for the rest of the weekend, so I just wanted to update you guys on what's been going on!

Also just a reminder to follow the new pinterest page it's been under construction for a while now just trying to pin past posts, so it should be close to caught up now and ready for you all to follow to keep up to date with posts!

My two best friends and I while visiting one another in Chicago

Some amazing sushi (and veggie sushi!) from the Chicago area

Just a little obsessed with my pup... her begging me to play!

This would be my lovely father as I was helping him water trees outside (notice the moon!)

Rainbow, duh, after a beautiful evening rain

An awesome quote I read for fellow horse people, something to keep in mind about most animals!

fall fashions... already?!

I really hate to do this, but since it is August I think I can start to post about my favorite clothing item... jackets! I love summer and I'm so desperately sad to see it go so quickly, but I do love a great jacket.

A good hood can warm up any chilly fall day

Every girl needs a leather jacket in her closet

Faux fur is the way to go

Gorgeous embellishments add a feminine touch to leather

Tweed is always classy, especially paired with a tall boot

apartment helpers

Check out these neat products to help keep your small (or large) space nice and tidy!

I could have used these when I had roommates

It's a pain to have to sort through laundry at the laundromat,
so do it easily at home with this laundry organizer

Some shoe organizers make it hard to tell what pair you're reaching for, not this one!

Fridge organization! Heaven on earth...

Genius, rotating plugs to fit those pesky large plug ins!
Why haven't I seen one of these before?!

These cute plug holders would definitely help with saving energy by encouraging unplugging items
