Zentangles!

Hello Everybody!

For the past year or so I’ve been really loving zentangles.  Zentangles are abstract drawings (usually within some sort of shape or outline) consisting of many repeated patterns drawn with markers or pens.  These “doodles” are really fun and easy to make and they are even quite relaxing too.  While searching up some zentangle ideas, I came across the idea of drawing an outline of a head and then inside of it you zentangle whatever your little heart desires.  I immediately became obsessed with this idea and decided to make one of my own.  I highly suggest making one of these elaborate doodles, as it is the perfect pastime for anyone.  Let me know in the comments down below if you have tried it!

Handbags.

Bracelets, necklaces, watches, and rings are all wonderful accessories that are the perfect finishing touches to any outfit.  However, a handbag is the ultimate accessory that I would feel incomplete without.  Wherever I go, I always have some sort of handbag with me.  Handbags are the type of items that make your outfit unique and your own, which is why I love them so much.  When I first heard of  Rue La La’s Style Guide to Handbags, I was inspired to share with you my all time favorite bag: My metallic hobo/tote style handbag from Coach.

Why This Bag & What I Carry In It
The main reason why I love this bag so much is because of it’s functionality. With this bag being more of a slouchy style, I’m able to wear it with almost anything– everyday. On a daily basis I carry the basics: mints, headphones, wallet, phone, lipstick, concealer, and tissues.

How I Wear It
Although I do use this bag almost every day, I feel like it looks best when paired with a skirt or dress.

My Playlist

Music.
Music is a very special thing for me. It helps me think, puts me in a good mood, and even inspires me. I would describe my music taste as alternative singer/songwriter with a little folk put into the mix. I think this music genre is perfect for the fall and winter months because of it’s soothing and “homey and cozy” qualities. Here some of my favorite songs of right now:

2. All Through The Night by Sleeping at Last
3. Falling by The Civil Wars
4. Make This Leap by The Hunts
5. Yellow by Michael Schulte
