pinterest picks

These are some of my favorite pinterest finds recently. I'm so ready for fall and tons of baking! It's so hard to bake when it's 100 degrees outside. I hope it cools down very soon.

silly love songs

I just have to post this song. It's quite a bit different from the other songs I've posted on here before but I just love it. I am a huge Lady Gaga fan and this song is so cute. 

There are a couple of lines in this song that are some of my favorite lyrics ever. They are:
"We've got a whole lot of money but we still pay rent, cause you can't buy a house in heaven."
"There's something about, baby, you & I."

The video is a little weird but would you expect any less from Gaga? Hope you enjoy!

Friendly Friday: Two Happy Hearts


1. What is your blog about? 
My blog is about my daily fashion and things that inspire me. I love bringing beauty and inspiration to anyone who might stumble upon my blog.

2. What are some of your hobbies? 
I love spending time with my husband, vintage shopping, baking, making and drinking good coffee, and (of course)!

3. Favorite food? 
I adore desserts! Give me a good sugar cookie, brownie, or ice cream of any kind and I'll be a happy camper!

4. What is your favorite book?
 My favorite author is Francesca Lia Block. I've been reading her books since high school. They're magical! I especially love the "Weetzie Bat" series.

5. What is your dream job? 
That's an easy one - owning a shop with my twin sister. We would love to have our own beautiful space to sell vintage things, clothes we've made, and cutsie little gifts.

6. What's your favorite place you've ever visited?
 New Zealand, for sure! My husband is from Auckland, NZ. I visited a few years ago, and I adored the beaches, culture, and green pastures. We would always find gorgeous jump spots....once we jumped off a cliff into the ocean, and another time we found a tree with a rope swing that dropped you right into the sea!

7. What's your favorite thing to bake? 
I love baking cookies. My favorite recipe at the moment is oatmeal with white chocolate and cranberries. YUMS!

8.What is your favorite color? 
Right now I have a few: mustard, teal, and red-orange. I actually really like how they all look together!

9. What are some of your favorite blogs? 
Well, besides Honey & Thread, I adore:

10. Do you have any last words of wisdom? 
Stay true! It may sound cheesy, but be proud of who you are and what you have to offer to the blog world! There are so many opportunities to look around at what others are doing. Remember that you are your own person. Represent and share things that you love. You'll find some pretty amazing, genuine friends and connections if you stay true ;)


Thanks Christen! I love your words of wisdom. :)

float trippin'

Here are some shots from last weekends float trip. We headed up to Galena, Missouri and met with some of my parents friends for the weekend. I love camping. My parents have a motorhome and it's really fun to be able to stay in parks and such. Such pretty scenery. Fletcher and I are going to start saving to find a cute little Shasta trailer! I'm so excited and I've been finding some cute ones online so now we just need to get some money saved!

These last two photos are from a shop in Galena. Apparently, the owner makes movie props, or so I heard. The dragon in the first photo is a rocking chair! It was really neat! I could only get some photos through the windows. The tiny town had some really neat history. I wish I could have taken more pictures of some other places.
