Thoughts and Things | Loves and Links

I thought I’d try something new this week and rather than tweet every ridiculous thought I had, I’d write it down in the notes on my iPhone and share it here in a post along with things I’ve found and loved on the internet as of late. It’s easy to get lost in a sea of social media from Twitter to Facebook, Pinterest to Instagram, so I thought maybe having it all in one place could be a fun little feature right here in this space. Besides, it will help me clear all this clutter off my desktop.

Maybe weekly is too much, but every other week could work? I’ll let you be the judge.

Thoughts and Things…

1. Why do I always think back on all that I’ve done wrong instead of how much I’ve done right?

2. I cannot get through a single episode of Downton Abbey without falling asleep. I’m on episode four of Season 1 and I honestly haven’t made it through a one. Should I keep trying? Does it get better? AM I THE ONLY WOMAN ON EARTH WHO DOESN’T LIKE THIS SHOW?

3. I miss Sex and the City… I realized the other night while watching a SATC marathon.

4. It drives me crazy when a woman refers to loving her “it bag” because it’s so functional. A canvas backpack is functional and it costs about $34 dollars. Stop lying.

5. Farts are always funny… I thought while watching The Whole 9 Yards, giggling as I was trying to fall asleep.

6. Some days are diamonds. Some days are rocks. They can’t all be diamonds, can they?

7. I hate saying the words: Ikat, Ombre, and Niche… especially neeeeeeeeeesh. blech.

8. If you’re not open to the truth about who you are, then you’re not open to growth and evolving as a human.

9. Sometimes I think I’m as big of an asshole as Seth MacFarlane. And sometimes I’m totally okay with that.

10. I don’t think anyone understands just how great it is to be young until they’re old.

11. Just because you win an argument doesn’t make you right.

12. It’s easy to sit at the helm when the weather is fine {my horoscope via Bazaar May 2013 mag}

13. I’m thinking about cutting my hair… like a lot.

Loves and Links…

Alexander Siradekiana shoe collection From Russia with Love

* I am LOVING this spectacular shoe collection by Alexander Siradekiana : From Russia with Love via The CoF

* This list of 25 Spiritual Lessons is nice to keep on hand for those days that are rocks rather than diamonds.

* Love this group of photos from LIFE magazine 1945 shot by Nina Leen, one of the first female photographers to shoot for LIFE {& from which the fabulous black and white photo above came from}.

* I love these little magical moving images of homes in trees by artist Daniel Barreto via Messy Nessy Chic

* This has been on my desktop for a few weeks now but I still love it Mister Rogers Remixed | Garden of Your Mind | PBS Digital Studios

* I LOVE this TedTalk Violence & Silence by Jackson Katz, Ph.D at TEDxFiDiWomen because it was phenomenal. I honestly am so happy it was given by a man, and a passionate man at that, because it would be regarded as a gender issue and tossed out had a woman given it. It’s worth the watch, really. It’s fantastic.

And last but not least…

Arrested Development Season 4 Trailer – Netflix

* I’m so so SO excited for the Return of the Bluth Family with all new episodes streaming at once on Netflix on MAY 26th. I CANNOT WAIT!!!

Happy Friday Lovecats!
