My moods have been changing with the weather the past few weeks. Sunny days (today!) I am happy and productive, and rainy days leave me feeling slow and anxious. Don't get me wrong, I like a good day of rain, but it has been raining a lot lately.

But today is nice out and I felt the need to take pictures of myself. "Selfies" are great ego boosts don't you think? It's a way of capturing yourself through your own lens. Pictures taken by other people are nice of course, but a good self-shot is such a nice way to capture your current mood and emotion, the way your hair is or the way the sun hits you.

Lately I have been...

Watching: The Secret Circle! I just finished it (there is only one season, boo) and I am in love with it. I have a serious weakness for teen supernatural/witch shows. If you like The Vampire Diaries chances are you'll like this show.

Reading: Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. So. Good.

Wearing: Shorts and tank tops with bathing suit tops for bras. Yep, super classy. But it's comfy so I couldn't care less.

Drinking & Eating: Sooo much water. I drink at least 6 large glasses a day, no joke. Also eating tons of bananas and avocados, as well as oatmeal, which has become a new comfort food for me.

Thinking About: Writing and characters. New characters keep coming to me and I couldn't be happier. I've also been thinking about minimizing a lot. Me and my boyfriend are going to do a house purge this weekend.

Inspired By: Witchcraft, flowers, this pinterest board, sunshine.

Doing: Watching The Secret Circle, cleaning the house, brainstorming, playing Kingdom Hearts (and freaking out over the announcement of the long awaited third game!), working out, baking.

  1. You're so gorgeous, lovely lady. <3 I often judge a book by its title (which isn't a bad thing) and I now *really* want to look up Clockwork Princess which I'm gonna go do. ;) My taste in reads is... unique. I don't read pure fluffy romance, but I also don't care if romance is in a book. I hate anything depressing, or that deals with death, yet I love series' like The Hunger Games. I love fantasy, but it's gotta be *just right*. I also LOVE manga. Sci-fi is probably the one genre I've read the least, which is strange because I adore sci-fi TV and movies.

    I hope you have a kick ass weekend!

    1. Aw thanks <3
      Clockwork Princess is #3 in the Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Angel is the first. It's a YA steampunk/urban fantasy series and is sososososososo good.

      I hope you have an awesome weekend too!

    2. Glad you said the name of the first one in the series! I went to goodreads to look up Clockwork Princess and saw it was the 3rd book and got disappointed! Adding this to my to read list! Thanks for suggesting!!

    3. No problem, I hope you like it :)

  2. What fun photos! Love your hair. Thanks for sharing! Xo, M&K at

  3. Love these photos, you are gorgeous! I loved The Secret Circle so much, I was so sad when it was cancelled. I also love The Vampire Diaries, I am excited for the new spin off coming this Fall. I love that Pinterest board, so much beauty!

    1. Aw, thank you <3
      I didn't know there was going to be a tvd spin-off? Aw, that is soooo exciting!
