new blog design + new things to blog about

Hey all! How has your week been? I can't believe it's the first of July, and I've only got a MONTH of summer left! I better accomplish my summer list before August first ;) 

Honestly, I've already done some of the stuff on it, I just seem to never have the time to blog about them...I know, the idea of summer and "not enough time" totally contradict and DO NOT blend well together. Haha, oh dear. Anyways, It's been about two weeks since you've seen my blog changing, and I am happy to say that I have accomplished the new blog design and I'd love to now what you guys think of it! 

Alrightie, I've received tons of messages going all: "Update your blog more often...I wanna see more posts...new posts please..." and the like and no, they weren't driving me crazy - they motivated me to think of solutions to lessen those messages! (Oh the irony.)

 I thought that maybe I should add features on my blog since I haven't been able to think of too much to blog about besides my current Summer List and photos that I take on a daily basis. Yesiree, ladies and gents (if there are, any) - I decided to add two new features on my blog :)

I was inspired by Melissa Blake at "So about what I said" on how she would write letters to her future husband. I decided that I'd love to do the same thing except I'd write to myself instead :)

Kinda clever for a title, right? I mean, who doesn't love Fridays?? Haha, anyways a lot of bloggers have been posting about their top five or ten favorites from the web or from stores. I was inspired the other day while I was reading the IT list page from Teen Vouge. I decided to do my very own top ten / top five lists of wants that I would make a collage of, talk about {admire and drool, actually} and be inspired by every Friday. 

Yes, I will be posting tomorrow! Heads up, really cool sponsored giveaway coming this month for those with U.S shipping addresses! So excited :)

 And so that this post holds potential, I do not only open it with a photo taken by me, but I will close it with one as well..

Have a lovely Sunday!

I agree, summer has gone by too fast... I haven't even started my summer "to do" list! Yeah, I better get to that.

Hi, Stella!

I just wanted to hop over and thank you for the kind comment you left on my blog.

I'm enjoying looking at your blog this morning!

That last picture is so gorgeous! It makes me want to learn origami.

I think that having a few new features is great! Creating another feature for my blog is something that I've been thinking about doing. So, I think you've inspired me to put some more thought into it and select a new feature for my blog too.

I look forward to looking at your blog more!
