What a beautiful life

Hey lovely people!

I hope your holidays are going as wonderful as can be! Can you believe its almost christmas because I am still trying to wrap my head around it..seriously the year seems like its just started yesterday. I am excited though, I put up some lights and will be putting up more decorations soon, and my house smells like the holidays. Its so nice to come from work or school and enter into a “holiday-home-like” little apartment..oh you have no idea how satisfying this can be.
It has been so foggy lately down here, like zero visibility foggy and driving is kind of scary especially in the early a.m. But I am holding up well, super excited to be doing my finals soon and be done with this quarter, graduation….I can smell you from here haha

I am one of those people whose always itching for an adventure, on my days off I love to go visit new places, mostly through hiking or visiting a new town. Adventure is good, right? it keeps us interested in every day and looking forward to the next. I however realized how ordinary life can be beautiful, by changing my attitude and finding the beauty in the routine, everyday life.
I found some quotes and lovely poems that I shared below. Do you guys read poems?, I used to hate them, I thought they sounded stupid, but people change (insert thoughtful face)

“Life is amazing, then its awful, and then its amazing again.
And in between the amazing and the awful,
its mundane, ordinary and routine.
Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful,
and relax and exhale through the ordinary. Thats just living
heart breaking,soul healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life.
And its breathtakingly beautiful”

“Good morning, I hope you find today extraordinary. Are you in love with the whole damn world? You should be, its glorious, and I can’t see a better way to experience life than being madly in love with everything” – Victoria Erickson

“How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives”

“So many roll their eyes at weekdays filled with the dread of the mundane. They’ve long forgotten that there are things other than passports that’ll sweep us away.But we’re breathing. The earth is turning beneath the ground, mere months away from bursting into bloom. The light constantly shifts, brightens, darkens, and moves. There are seasons within seasons within seasons. Seek out new reasons to be thrilled with the familiar, or find a new cafe or passion or road to drive down, or wander to a different place or doorway or sweeping, serene view. Allow the world to work its way into your heartstrings and still existing adrenaline, as everything is fascinating when you go deep enough. Reach for the natural wonder that still breathes inside the pulse of this, the world, and you.”

Classic plaid

So because it’s fall, I had to pull out my plaid shirt and do that classic white T-shirt and plaid shirt look. I felt so midwest, so I decided to pair the look with my chelsea boots which made the look more northwest?…ok now am just making up stuff haha
Its the perfect layering for fall because you don’t need a coat over it, and you look like a classic fashionable babe, and who doesn’t want that? In the great PNW I see a lot of people hiking in this kind of outfit, even though I would not go hiking looking this (I value comfort way too much to hike in jeans) I secretly love seeing these fashionable hikers. For me, this is more a casual look for school, hanging out with a friend or running errands.
Plaid shirt – Target (little boys section…sshh..)
Chelsea boots – Marshalls
Wooden watch – Ian’s mom 🙂
Denim pants – H&M

Lastly, I have been reading/listening to audio books and thought it would be nice to share my current faves:
1. Mindy Kaling’s : why not me – If you love comedy this is funny especially if you’re female, guys may not relate to much in here.
2. The girl in the spider’s web – Awesome content, very well written plot, I was engaged from start to finish. If you are a Stieg Larson’s fan, this book was written by a different author since Larson passed away but the new writer doesn’t disappoint. This book is the 4th of a series, so if you haven’t read the rest you may want to start with The girl with a dragon tattoo.
3. Lastly The Fold by Peter Clines is my favorite of the three. It is a science fiction book with a mind blowing plot, so unpredictable and full of suspense, I really enjoyed this one. I will definitely read this again.

Zara – Prints

Zara haul
A few weeks ago I went to Zara – Seattle and was really impressed with their collection. First I didn’t know we had a Zara in the area, so I was pretty excited when I saw one in the city and second, I love the unique prints they have at their store. They remind me of African fabric (which cost an arm and a leg here), and of course I love prints! I have also been watching astronaut wives lately and this outfit kind of goes with that 60’s theme I really like.

Zara skirt
This outfit is perfect for a dinner date, formal dinner party, church or a fall wedding, and the material is stretchy so its super comfortable and fits well in every size. You can also wear the top with different bottoms, and vice versa, since its 2 pieces.
