Internet Inspiration

I don't usually follow a ton of Tumblr pages, mainly because I'm just not that hip to the times. All these social medias confuse me. However, I could not help myself when I found the simple splendor of Little Things.

Take a look.....

Living Under A Rock

The problem with working all of the time is that you forget there are things like television, movies, and music. I tend to be behind on almost everything all of the time. Lately I've been making an effort to actually bring my iPod with me on the bus and as I walk to work because, sadly, work transportation is pretty much my only listening to music time.

When my mom came to visit me I asked her to save all her Rolling Stone Magazines from the last few months and bring them to me so I could slowly but surely come back into the light of pop culture. I couldn't remember the last time I bought a new C.D. or discovered a new band or learned anything new about music period.

If you know me personally, it's kind of a big deal for me to not know what's going on with music. I used to have subscriptions to like 10 different magazines and be the biggest internet stalker for some of my favorite bands. I didn't even know Bright Eyes came out with a new album this year. Plus Kimya Dawson came to Boston right under my nose. 16 year old Emily pretty much hates me. 

I'm slowly working my way through them and making an effort to check out ye' olde Youtube for some refreshing of my senses. Here's what I'm jamming to...

Boston Exploration

Ari and I were invited to go kayaking on the Charles River with some friends and we had a great time. It was certainly wonderful kick off to the summer properly. We came home a little tired and sunburned, but it was a remarkable feeling after such a LONG winter!

Being surrounded by big buildings, subways, and concrete, you forget that places like this even exist. I've got 6 days of long and exhausting shifts at work ahead of me, but I'm hoping they will include some much needed painting time for some projects I'm doing right now. I hope to share them soon!

Pee Wee

 We didn't have internet for a day which was actually really nice. I sewed up a hole in Ari's shirt, cleaned up the apartment, and finished some new jewelry! It's amazing what you can do when you're not sucked into the interwebs.

I'm excited to bring back this necklace style is it was very popular before! My little red bow tie necklace!
Check it out here in my Etsy shop.

Anyways, this weather has been so lovely and it's so nice to see summer showing itself around Boston! I hope everyone is doing well!

Edible Crafts

I made these cookies from Vegan Cookies Take Over Your Cookie Jar a while back when one of my co-workers was leaving. Even thought it was spring, I couldn't help but pick something out with fall flavors! Cinnamon, walnuts, maple, and cranberry sauce! Yum! I just can't help myself. Autumn is definitely my favorite season for foods.

They were quite yummy although the cranberry thumbprints get a bit soggy the next day. 
Anyone else familiar with making thumbprint cookies? Any tips?
