Tuesday Tea Time

I suppose before we get too into this, I should probably say something about my sudden blog design change. Surprise! I know this is the third time I've re-done it this year, but I can be s indecisive. And while I enjoyed the colours in my last one, I really wanted something in mostly black and white. What do you guys think?

Tea of the Week: Regular Black Tea. Nothing fancy this week.

Tumblr Finds

This is incredibly beautiful.

This pug is the cutest. I love pugs..

Have you listened to Welcome to Night Vale? This is what it feels like. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
It's a podcast, by the way.



Silly Question, Indeed.

Some of the best humans in the world are middle school teachers and staff.
Love this. The silliest question indeed!

Window Shopping
Phases of the Moon Stud Earring Collection
Loving these stud earrings.

Need this card to hand out to people I snap at while hungry, haha.

I want this dress from Free People sooo badly.

  1. I'm digging your new layout, big time!

    Also, I seriously love those moon studs!

    Intrigued by "Night Vale"...


    1. Thanks! You should listen to it, it's sooooo good. I am IN LOVE. There's 31 episodes out right now :)

  2. Love the new look! I tried getting into Night Vale over the summer, my friend is really into it, but I have a really hard time paying attention to podcasts/audio books if I can't follow along with text. As hard as I try to pay attention my brain just automatically zones out. :(

    1. It can be difficult, I admit. I listen to it while on polyvore -enough to keep me busy but not too much (like tumblr) to get distracted by.
      And thanks :)

  3. I love this layout! I just watched a concert that Stevie Nicks did recently and that dress looks like something she would wear on stage. The woman is in her sixties, still touring with Fleetwood Mac, and she still looks SO magical.

    1. Stevie Nicks is a goddess <3 (and thanks!)

  4. This layout is my favorite by far, I LOVE it. Beautiful.

    That first picture is so beautiful, it made me tear up a little when I first saw it. It is amazing how powerful imagery is.

    I am in love with those earrings, oh my! They just made it onto my birthday list.

    I love the card about being hungry. The women in my family call it "hanger" and we all suffer from it. I become uber bitch when I am hungry. I just need to give my husband a look and he knows, he told me to start carrying a Larabar in my purse. LOL!

    That dress is amazing, so beautiful. I love Free People so much, I just wish they had a more reasonable price point. There are so many things I covet from there.

    I've missed visiting this space, I am hoping things start to slow down around here. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind! xo

    1. Thanks, it's my favourite so far as well. Fells very me, especially where I am right now.
      I really really wish Free People was cheaper -I could redo my whole wardrobe with just their clothes and be pretty happy about it

  5. I now wish I wore regular earrings cause those moon ones are amazing. Also, I may now put my dog in leaves. Yep, it's happening.

    xo Ashley

  6. I really like your new design, Manda! Before I settled on LnLs blog design that I have now, I was changing mine pretty much monthly! I still love some of my old design work, however now it's just... *right*

    That pug!

    I love those studs!

    Also, Welcome to Night Vale is popping up everywhere I look. I'll have to check 'tis out!
