Weekly Wrap Up

May 23, 2014

Oh my, how did two weeks manage to fly by since my last "Weekly Wrap Up" post? What the heck?! Sometimes, life moves way too fast for my liking. I have a birthday coming up in July and I feel like my thirties are whizzing by. Guys, it's totally freaking me out, no joke! But then I try to remind myself age is just a number and by no means does the fun have to stop at a certain age, you know?!

Photos from our week: 1) Wearing my fave dress from my girl Tieka. 2) Blossoming trees. I'm obsessed! 3) Treating myself to a DIY manicure & red nails. 4) Hitting the gym, I've been so disciplined!

Favourites from around the web:
I'm obsessed with Joy McCarthy; she's a holistic nutritionist and her blog is a wealth of info!
Loved this post on finding motivation from Melissa of Bubby and Bean.
♥ I'm positively smitten with this anchor and raw crystal necklace via Belle Hibou on Etsy.
♥ Julie of Orchid Grey is absolutely rocking this polka dot dress - what a beauty!

Inspired by: Perhaps it's the weather?! But I feel so motivated and in love with blogging at the moment. Honestly, over the winter I was such a Debbie downer and even considered shutting my blog down... I'm thinking we all feel like that from time-to-time though, no?!

On the horizon: Adventures. I want to make this a really fun spring/summer... strawberry picking, visiting our favourite ocean spots, barbequing with friends and planning city dates with my man. I don't want to let a day go by!!

22 sweet notes:

    I love that manicure + your beautiful ring!!!

  2. Happy Friday, V! Honestly, I know just what you mean about being a Debbie downer about blogging - but once you get your inspiration back, it's like nothing can stop you. Glad to hear you're feeling that way these days :) Wishing you the loveliest weekends... fingers crossed this darn rain goes away!

    Such a lovely round up! Your photos are wonderful. Love your nails as well xE


  7. I'm a July baby, too! And my grandma has always said, "you're only as young as you feel" and I feel like it's very hopeful when an 80 year old says she feels 25 :) So glad you're finding joy in blogging- I'm guessing that blog life course is helping? Krist and I are planning on starting it up in summer!

  8. Your nails are so pretty! I gain a ton of motivation in the spring and summer too, while winter I contemplate what I'm doing with my life ha! It's nice seeing more of the sun, well as much as we can get in BC ;)

  9. Aw, thank you! And yes, it's amazing what a little sun therapy can do, right?! Absolutely love your photography by the way! Happy weekend! xo

  10. Oh fun, you're a July baby!! And your Grandma sounds like a wonderfully spirited woman - love that she feels so young at heart. Definitely gives me hope! And yay, blog life!! xo

  11. Kristina, thank you for the sweet words on my blog. You're such a sweetheart! :) As much as I feel disgruntled from time to time... I don't think I could ever shut it down. It's become such a part of my life, you know?! And happy long weekend to you & your fam! xo

  12. Love the picture of you, the first shot. So beautiful and happy! x

  13. LOVE your floral dress selfie, dear Veronika...so cute!! And those gym shoes are adorable, too; coming from someone who really isn't a fan of the athletic look, that's a huge compliment...can I ask what brand they are?! Not that I'll be ready for anything other than short strolls for a while yet; shutting down my own site has crossed my mind more than a few times lately. But all the support and encouragement I've been getting from blogger friends keeps me inspired and motived...I hope that you know how much YOU are appreciated, too!! XO


  14. Awww, thanks for including the link to my motivation post! And I'm on the same page as you about the 30s whizzing by. It's crazy!

  15. Your dress looks so cute and man, your nails are absolutely perfect!


  16. Monika, thank you for your kind blog words. I definitely feel the love!! <3 As for the shoes?! They're ridiculously old but I did notice some really cute ones at Rockport... http://bit.ly/1jlrC99 (the pink & grey is my fave)! Hope your Sunday is a relaxing one! xoxo

  17. Lovey, you're welcome! Adore you & your blog, and SO appreciate all your amazing support. You rock!! xo
