I just finished reading a book.

It's been a long time since thats happened, I dont read as much as I would like.
But I read this one in 24 hours. So that's cool.

It was "Is everyone hanging out without me (and other concerns)" By Mindy Kaling.
I'm convinced that we're the same human.
But I'm less hilarious. Mostly because she is a riot.

My favorite lines?

“I simply regard romantic comedies as a subgenre of sci-fi, in which the world created therein has different rules than my regular human world.

What else should I know?
(1) There is no sunrise so beautiful that it is worth waking me up to see it.

(2) I would like to be friends with BeyoncĂ© Knowles.” 

“A remarkable thing about me is that the time that elapses between a sad thought and a flood of tears is three or four seconds.”

"Unfortunately, I have only dance music on my Ipod, which how I got to be such a great dancer."

"Who is this invisible anti terrorist? It's me, Mindy Kaling. I was hiding behind Cee Lo's fur coat."

“There Has Ceased to Be a Difference Between My Awake Clothes and My Asleep Clothes” 

“Future hipsters will love me ironically.”

“And when I say the Fashion Police, of course I’m speaking of the small group of screeching gay guys and fashion “experts” on that E! show led by the reanimated corpse of Joan Rivers.” 

seriously the list goes on. so funny.
and if that doesn't convince you to read it?
child mindy will.

happy friday guys,
may your weekend be full of hope and wonder and joy and parties.

Designing for days.

I think I'm done. With designing this ole blog.
The past few days haven't shown lots of changes,
just a lot of uncertainty. 

I've been so inspired by simplicity is others blogs,
and you can see that translated to mine.

I'd love to hear your critiques? Placements?
Fonts? too black and white?
Don't hesitate to say.

Hopefully, a week from now I'll still like this. 


remember my weekly goal to design? ha well i did. 
and this made it out of this creative brain of mine.

It's lyrics from Lana's song featured in the Great Gatsby?
The greatest song right, fit for the greatest movie.

I told you that when I embarked on this designing journey
I'd share with you.
So please share on pinterest, and if you print this out and use it in your home?
Please show me :) 

happy thursday friends, thanks for reading this blog of mine.

love, rachel

Moving out and Picture rails.

I'm moving out.
Not til fall, probably, but out.
With a couple of my best friends, and I could not be more excited.

Basically I've been spending too much time looking at wall decor.
It's a problem. but I love it.
Here are some pieces that have really caught my eye.

As far as hanging my pictures, I've recently been introduced to the picture rail.
It's such a great way to fill your space with art, with out distracting the eye.
A variety of hooks combined with strong nylon chords leaves you with so many possibilities.
Don't hesitate to take a look.

Happy Saturday Loves.

Afternoons with Arielle

I'm in between jobs.
This means free days, which I usually don't have.

I spent today's free day with Arielle.
We did lunch, went antiquing and thrifting.
Crafts were made, and music was played.

I was also lucky enough to take pictures of that sweet girl.
Here's a preview.

She's a beauty right? I'm lucky to have pretty friends.

happy wednesday,

Dating and Designing.

dating is hard. this might not be a surprise to a lot of you.
but i actually thought it was going to be a blast.
this is the first time in my life where i've actually had to date.
i'm spoiled. it's always been "crush, first date, boyfriend" type deal.

i've had some thoughts that may be valid, or i may still be in a daze.
but thoughts none the less.
i'm odd. and it might take awhile to find someone else who's odd, matches mine.
a fun time doesn't always make for a relationship.
settling is not even an option. not for a second.
it's okay to wait to be swept off my feet.

Let's just say someone is testing my capability to wait.
And wait I will.

p.s. im trying to be a more productive person.
the plan is that once a week, i'm going to design.. something.
and like this one, they'll probably be up for free download.

p.p.s. this was inspired by Elsa at The girl with plans.
take a look. her words are great, as are her pictures.

Summer fashion inspiration

It's finally starting to feel more like summer in this Utah place.
I, for one, could not be more happy.
I love spending summer with my curly hair in shorts, and sandals.

New seasons always leave me wanting to add too many things to my wardrobe.
Whether bought or made these things are on my list.

1. Lace trim shorts
2. Sea inspired hair pieces
3. Printed Suspenders (I lost the link, but its from chictopia, let me know if you see it!)
4. Flower applique tee
5. Fruit purse

What summer fashions do you love right now? I wouldn't mind a reason to take a trip to the mall :)
