Well, improvement is the way to go.

The idea of starting a blog used to intimidate the crap out of me. Okay, let's be honest here: it still does. The blog in my head is full of romantic outfit photos and tales of great adventures. However, the blog in real life isn't quite as exciting, but I'm working on it. To be honest, I'm not one for taking pictures of myself, but I'm going to work on that too. As a little intro post ( a much better one than last time, though I'm still attempting to figure out blogger), here are some things I love:

There is a US map taking up almost the entire length of one of my bedroom walls that can prove this. Though I haven't stuck dressmakers pins into places I've gone (I'd only need like, ten), I do have a very detailed map going through the states of places I'd like to go. It's a goal, right?

Old books, especially dictionaries.
Quirky little Kaylie collects dictionaries. I have something around thirty, my oldest dating back to 1912. The best I ever saw was in a little antique shop here in Salinas, over a thousand pages and a few inches tall. Ten dollars! Unfortunately, at the time, I didn't feel like lugging it around Old Town, so I let it go. When I went back, fully prepared for the trek, someone had snatched it up. Fate, perhaps?
Kittens, cats, and other animals.
We have four cats in our house: the adult, two teen sisters, and a toddler, whom we found outside of our apartment building a few days ago. Originally we were going to find him a home, but I loved Studely (short for Stud Muffin. This boy is fiiine.) too much to share him with anyone else. He's about the same size as the little guy in this pic.
Thrift stores.
Thrift stores are all the rage these years, and for good reason. Unique clothing at an affordable price? Count me in. Also, it's modern-day treasure hunting, with some of the best prizes.

These are just a few thing that get me smiling. Hopefully there will be more posts to come. I'm just a little intimidated by the blogging world, but I figure I should probably get over it, especially if I want to go into fashion journalism, aye?

  1. Aw, I love maps with pins in them marking all the places you have traveled and leaving open all the places you will travel too eventually. So perfect :)
