10 Things I'm Obsessed With Right Now: June Edition

Friday, June 14, 2013

Hello, Lovely Friend. Things have been absolutely crazy in my world for the past few weeks. I have been out of town nearly every weekend since the beginning of April with work, wedding related events, and other family gatherings. Whew. I have tons of pictures & adventures to share with you including a plethora of wedding & honeymoon images. I plan to spread them out over the next week.
 
The only thing I have been able to think about all week has been my mini-honeymoon trip this weekend. We are trekking over to Dallas to see She & Him in concert. My husband surprised me with the tickets back in February, so we have been extremely excited for this trip. Zooey Deschanel is one of my favorite quirky girls. Ever since I saw her in Elf, I've been smitten with her quirky style & adorable personality. Needless to say, it's been a struggle to stay productive this week due to my excessive excitement.
 
 Every month, I feel like my obsessions and interests change. For the past couple of month, I've been consumed with plans for my wedding. Now that I'm married, I'm starting to re-visit old hobbies and focus more on myself. I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to resurrect one of my favorite blog features. So, here is my June list of 10 things I'm completely obsessed with right now.
 
Owls: I'm not sure why, but my obsession with all things owl related has intensified. My work office is bedecked with lots of owl figures & wall art.



Photography: I have been trying to take more photos both with my phone & my SDL camera. It's challenging at times, especially when I forget my camera at home, but it's a fun hobby and a learning experience.
 
Pink office supplies: I have always loved office supplies in general. I went shopping the other day and picked up some hot pink post-its & some pink gelly pens. A friend also surprised me with a pink office set including scissors, push pins, and a stapler.
 
Film Scores: My Pandora has been permanently set on my favorite film score station. It's the perfect inspiration to get a lot of work done. I'm currently loving the film score from Pride and Prejudice and The Red Violin.  
 
Satchels: I have been completely obsessed with satchels lately. I recently took my purple Cambridge satchel with me out of town, and it was extremely versatile. I could use it to house my laptop or tote it around with my purse essentials.
 
Mason jars: There is just something really beautiful and simple about mason jars. I made mason jar candles for my wedding and it turned out to be really pretty. I have also seen pretty flower arrangements placed into mason jars. I've been dying to try a few mason jar projects that I have seen on Pinterest.
 
The Snugg iPad 4 Case: I was recently given a Snugg iPad 4 Case to try out. I have been completely smitten with this case. I'm actually very picky when it comes to cases and tend to switch out my case every couple of days. But since receiving this lovely pink Snugg, I have not taken it off once. It's quite sturdy yet very light weight. I adore the color and the holder for my stylus. It's also durable and easy to keep clean. The case is also available on Amazon. I'm definitely a big fan of the Snugg.
 
Infinity scarves: I discovered infinity scarves the other day while shopping with my husband. There were some scarves on sale at Express, so I picked up a few. I love to layer my outfits because the temperatures tend to fluctuate here in Amarillo. I also found some cute infinity scarves on Etsy. I think I'm a scarf-addict.
 
She & Him: I have been listening to their new album, Volume 3, on repeat for the past few weeks. I absolutely cannot wait to see them in concert this weekend.
 
Swimming pools: I absolutely love to go swimming during the summertime. I have gone swimming every day this week after work. My husband mentioned going to a water park some time this summer, and I jumped at the suggestion because I have never been to one before. Swimming is one of my favorite summer activities.
 
What are you obsessed with right now??
 
Lots of love & positive vibes,

  3. congrats!!!
    I may have to look into that ipad stand - that looks just what I'm after.
    I have a satchel like that which I've almost worn out. I actually bought another one in black (when I saw it on special) because I know how devastated I'll be when it finally breaks.
