Wishlist Wednesday: August Wrinkle

While browsing through my daily blog reads, I came across this really great shop called August Wrinkle. They have a great collection of some absolutely adorable pieces of clothing, jewelry, and accessories. I highly suggest you check them out (they also have a lot of great sales going on right now!). Coming up with a wishlist was so hard because I really wanted everything! I finally narrowed it down to some of my top choices, and here they are. Enjoy!

Foresty Ring, $6.75

Tumblr Tuesday #14

Today's Tumblr Tuesday is coming a day late because of the holiday yesterday. I'm probably going to post Wishlist Wednesday a day late, too. I hope everyone enjoyed their day yesterday - I know I did! I ate way too much food, and enjoyed a lot of time with my family. My favorite part about holidays is spending time with my loved ones.

Currently - 24 December 2012

Happy Christmas Eve to all my Christmas-celebrating friends! And to those who do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you are enjoying your holiday season. I figured I would do a currently post today just to catch you all up with my life right about now since I am no longer at school (on vacation at my parents' house) and slightly less stressed (but let's be honest, going from living alone to back with your parents is quite stressful).

>> <<

Listening - Christmas music on the radio

Eating - raw gingerbread cookies (I should probably stop eating them so we can actually bake some...)

Drinking - water

Reading - I'm Mad as Hell and I'm Not Going to Eat it Anymore!: Taking Control of Your Health and Life - One Vegan Recipe at a Time

Watching - nothing, but last night I watched Columbo (a 70's murder mystery show) with my parents

Planning - for Christmas Day tomorrow!

Wearing - my pajamas (flannel pants & a tee shirt)

Nails - naked right now, which is unusual for me...hopefully I'll have time to paint them today

Feeling - a little bit tired, but excited for seeing all my family in the next two days

Weather - not snowing : (

Wanting - snow! and to have a stress-free day

Needing - to go roll out some gingerbread cookies

Thinking - that it is finally starting to feel a bit like Christmas now that I am baking cookies and wrapping gifts

Enjoying -this picture of a cat playing a trombone

Eco Friendly Gifts

Guess who has only just started the majority of her holiday shopping today? You guessed it, this girl right here. I spent all morning out shopping/panicking about what to get people for Christmas. I had some luck. I unfortunately might have to make another trip out tomorrow morning.
I really love the idea of getting people eco-friendly gifts. I always try to incorporate environmentalism into every aspect of my life (and then try and push it into other peoples' lives too..). It may be really last minute and too late to get things shipped in time for Christmas day, but I still wanted to share an Etsy Treasury of eco-friendly gifts that I put together. I hope you like it! (You can click on the image to view it on Etsy.)
