global treasures

Good morning my darlings! Thanks for such a positive response to the great reveal ;) and the sleeping tips. They all be going into effect as soon as possible, I'll keep you posted on the snoozy results! As for now, I'd like to continue with the honesty. Here's another confession: until I was 16 years old, I had dreams of being an interior designer. A class at FIT helped clear that up but to this day I still feel the urge to play pretend.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being joined by Chrissie, a best friend of mine from high school. She is also a former interior design dreamer, and after running a few errands, accompanied me to Pier 1 Imports. I can't get enough of the global-inspired... everything :) I could spend hours in this store. And I have the photos to prove it, paired with my favorite Body & Soul thoughts:
Reconnect with your work. Think beyond what you do to how it affects others.
Nourish your bliss. It lays the foundation for what's to come.

Just as a seed contains all it needs to sprout, so are you already equipped to thrive.

Some of the most amazing moments in your life will take you by surprise. Let them.
True love begins with both curiosity about and acceptance of yourself.
Real awareness isn't about hanging on to the moment, but simply recognizing it's there.
Don't discount the value of simple pleasures.
Consider this year the opportunity of a lifetime. Start fresh.
Isn't it all just so gorgeous?! Je les adore. I have to say though, in the future I'll probably avoid most of it for fear of clutter. Except for this globe of course, everyone should have one of these. It's so pretty and vintage and, in my mind, perfect inspiration to entice more travel. Speaking of, guess what's coming after graduation?! A cross-country road trip.
Yep, Chris and I just decided while we were at our final destination, Whole Foods. I've said before that I'm itching to use my Garmin and we were saying how for as much of the world as we have already seen, there's also that desire to explore our own backyard, and our plan was born. I'll give you more information when I have it :) I cannot wait. Until then, it's back to internship work for me (two more weeks until last semester classes start.) Happy Tuesday everyone, take care!
