: exploring sustainable fashion, the great outdoors, and an eco-friendly lifestyle :


Sunday, March 22, 2015

Since I started reading Kinfolk, I've really been getting good at slowing down.  Especially on Sunday.  I've tried to disconnect with technology and connect with books, people, and nature.  I'm getting ready to head to a going away party at a castle (still so cool that I can say things like this and have them be true), which I think is a pretty solid way to spend a Sunday. 

I'm really hoping that I can have friends over after the party and can continue the hang-outtage… especially since the ghosts in my house have been extremely active lately and I haven't been getting much sleep (I'll fill ya in on my new tales from the haunted house tomorrow… I'm trying to be calm and relaxed right now…). 

To help my relaxation process while I'm in this house, I've put together a collection of some of my favourite Instagram photos, including some of 3 of my 4 tattoos.  The one on the top of my foot is a henna design in commemoration of a good friend who passed away in a car accident during our freshman year of college.  The peace sign on my wrist is a reminder to chill out and that there are inherently good people in the world.  The dots on my ankle are for my family.  I have another tattoo on the side of my hip, if that makes any sense, but it's hard to photograph.  It says "Carpe Diem" and is a reminder to go out and live.  Yay, tattoos!

  6. I really appreciate tattoos with true meaning behind them; your "Carpe Diem" is my favourite, as I think everyone needs to drill this saying into their brains! Life is too short not to seize the day, after all. I've been really trying to chill out and relax recently, as work life has become very stressful, but I feel there are promising changes on the horizon! I feel like spring has arrived, and inevitably spring cleaning, too, but I'm actually enjoying it! It's like having a fresh, new outlook on life. :) xxx
