Sunday Funday

Sundays are the best. You can wake up late, be lazy around the house in your favorite set of PJ’s, read or watercolor or do whatever the hell else you want whilst ignoring the impending doom of the Monday blues.

Sundays are also great for makin’ stuff with friends!

I was scrolling around on Pinterest finding the most delicious summer treats to make with some friends this morning. Obviously popsicles are my favorite. Not only do the look beautiful, but they’re delicious, and the oooonly thing I want with me while I take a dip in the pool.

….except for a daiquiri. 

Here are some of my favorite summer popsicles!

Blood Orange Margarita Popsicles. Need I say more?

Orange Cremesicles!

 

Image

 

This is an Iced Coffee popsicle. Can we talk about how much I need this? Like now.

 

Image

 

Coke Float is probably the best thing that ever happened to a popsicle. 

Image

 

Raspberry Cheesecake Pops! It’s an ice cream cake on a stick!

Image

 

“Firecracker” – Berry Yogurt Pop. zoooomg. 

Image

 

And one more with a little kick! 

Strawberry Champagne for the win. This is the first that I will be trying.

HAPPY POPPIN’!

Y’all…my roommate and I are total poster whores.

We fawn over every font. We praise every pattern. We swoon for spartan design.

I’ve been browsing around the posters on Pinterest and I’d like to share some of my favorites with y’all.

Gotta have that local love!

Minimalist TV show posters are always the coolest.

Y’all need to check out John Knoerl’s work. He does all of Passion Pit’s posters and he’s the coolest dude ever.

Follow him on his website and Instagram!

Ah! My girl! Did you know I danced on stage with Ms. Monae when she performed at The Varsity for an exclusive sneak preview of her recent album?

Because I did.

And now I can die peacefully knowing that I dougied with the queen of pompadours and sass.

On this gloomy Sunday all I want to do is cuddle up with a good book and a cat.

Image

Anybody down for some girl talks?

Image

Or hot chocolate?

Image

This is lavender hot chocolate (hot chocolate + lavender ice cream from Whole Foods.) You bet your ass we’re trying this recipe out now.

Image

Speaking of good books, if you read this post then you are aware of my obsession with war photography. I’ve been reading Alan Huffman’s book on war photographer Tim Hetherington. 

Image

 

It’s killer. 

(awkward pun not intended)

 

Image

The writing is brilliant. It really allows you to dive into the pages, immersing yourself in the blood-stained Libyan terrain. Hetherington unfortunately died in a mortar blast while covering the Libyan Civil War, but his story is inspiring and tells of the courage, risks, and thrills of war reporting.

 Image

While most war photographers captured men in actual combat, Hetherington’s talents were found in capturing rarely seen moments. He showed the humanity within war. I think that’s why I love his work so much.

Structured pieces.

Dying my hair.

Minimalism.

Trippy architecture.
