Have a beautiful weekend.

What are your plans this weekend? Alex and I found ourselves in a funny predicament: Our travel plans fell through, but we had already rented out our apartment! We're now staying at a friend's house in Brooklyn. I'm excited for our little adventure! Meanwhile, here are a few great posts from around the web this week...

Turn around! What's your shadow doing?

A fashion collection inspired by The Graduate.

How fun to be two.

Looking for a new summer drink?

Heidi Klum's tips on how to look good in photos. I trust her.

Nice packaging, H&M tights.

Liking ships in bottles.

The prettiest pregnancy photos.

Love is multi-faceted.

Flight or invisibility?


How to make a duvet cover from sheets. Nice!

100 abandoned houses of Detroit. Via Daydream Lily.

New Yorkers, the Steven Alan Sample Sale is this weekend.

Rad tapestry backpack.

DIY book for a newborn, and a vintage baby sale.

Inspired by the new blog Sunday Suppers, via Snippet & Ink.

Sweet summer sandals.

A blog dedicated to the questions kids ask. (Via Swissmiss)

Pretty flowers for you.

Plus, two videos:

Toast's new video makes me want to wear a polka-dot bathing suit. (Thanks, Christine!)

Great Tour de France ad.

Have a wonderful weekend. xoxo

I've been scrapbooking ALLLLL weekend!!!!! My little brother graduates from high school next year, so I'm helping my mom put together his high school scrapbook (his elementary and middle school ones are already done). It's quite a task, but it is turning out so cute and my mom and I are having a blast.

Joanna, when you have kids you MUST make them scrapbooks. Even now, when I look back at the scrapbook I've made and that my mom made me, I crack up. I always show my friends mine when they come over, and I can't wait to show my kids one day how goofy my family is! :)

I love the "curls" post. As a girl who has been fighting her curls all of her life, I am finally learning to embrace them (although, I will always have a straigtening iron in my beauty arsenal). Great links!

sneakers shoes She continued,
"Why...? Don't you need someone to pose as your girlfriend this year?" Then he answered,

"No, there is no need for that anymore......"
Before he can continue, he was interrupted, discount

"Oh yes! Must have found a girlfriend! nike shox r4 You haven't been searching for one for

the past years, right?" The man looked up, as if he has struck gold, his face beamed and

looked directly at the drunken girl. tn dollarHe

replied, " are right! I haven't been looking for anyone for the past years."
With that, the man darted across the floor and out the door, cheap nike shoesleaving the lady in much

bewilderment. He finally realized that he has already found his dream girl, and she

was.....the Vancouver girl all along! The drunken lady has said something that awoken

All along he has found his tennis shoes

That was why he did not bother to look further when he realized she was not coming back.

It was not any specific girl he was seeking! cheap

nike shox
It was perfection that he wanted, and yes.....perfection!!
Relationship is something both parties should work on. Realizing that he had let away

someone so important in his life, he decided to call her immediately. His whole mind was

flooded with shipping shoes He was

afraid that she might have found someone new or no longer had the same feelings

anymore..... For once, he felt the fear of losing someone.
As it was Christmas eve, the line was quite hard to get through, especially an overseas

call. He tried again and again, never giving up. Finally, he got through......precisely

at 1200 midnight. He confessed his love for her and the girl was moved to tears. nike shoes It seemed that she never got over him!

Even after so long, she was still waiting for him, never giving up.

fly to Vancouver to join her. It was the happiest time of their lives! nike discount shoes But their happy time was short-

lived. Two days before he was supposed to fly to Vancouver,cheap puma shoes he received a call from her father.

She had a head-on car collision with a drunken driver. nike shox shoes She passed away after 6 hours in a

with him? He cursed the heaven for taking her away from him, denying even one last look

at her! How cruel he cursed! How he damned the Gods...!!nike free shoes How he hated himself....for taking so

long to realize his mistake!! That was in 1996.
The moral of this story is :
Treasure what you have...
Time is too slow for those who wait;
Too swift for those who fear;
Too long for those who grief;
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love...
Time is Eternity.
For all you out there with someone special in your heart, cherish that person, cherish

every moment that you spend together that special someone, for in life, anything can

happen anytime. buy shoes onlineYou may

painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
