This week felt like it would never end or get better. Each day I woke up exhausted and unmotivated and today was just the icing on the cake. I was almost late to class, forgot close-toed shoes for lab, and forgot to eat breakfast and lunch. I felt like a complete mess, but I prevailed. I got up, I showed up, and I survived. And despite the terrible start to my day I decided to make the most of what was left. I went thrifting, ate dinner with friends, and cuddled a pupper. And thanks to those simple little actions I ended a rough week on a happy note.

How this week felt…

Incase you missed last weekends chance to march for change.

Indoor gardening for soil haters.

You and 6/10

Pretty jeans that would be fun to recreate. (Cause there is no way I’m paying $129)

Perfect summer adventure bag/basket.

Beautiful white kitchen redo.

Some pretty earrings and a dress to go with.

DIY napkins

I hope you have a good weekend and don’t forget to engage in self-care if you’ve been having a rough week!

So this weekend, despite the impending doom of midterms, looks like it is going to be a good one. Saturday is Earth day, and here in Bellingham that means that there will be a myriad of events to attend. So many events to choose from, yet I can only be at one place at a time, bummer! After surveying my options I opted to March for Science instead of sitting inside listening to talks. When in doubt opt for action. Climate change is real my friends and I encourage you to get out there and March for Science this weekend! What are you doing to celebrate Earth day this weekend?

Find your nearest March for Science

A pretty dress to make for summer

Summer capsule wardrobe bags that are pretty.

I stumbled across this and her blog and am kind of in love now.

Everyone in Bellingham is wearing stacked rings and its so beautiful that I need to hop on this trend.

This embroidered patch is pretty rad… hehe

A podcast series that I devoured in two days this week.

A little reminder.

Empowering documentary that I watched in class this week. (P.s. it’s on Netflix)

A beautiful Portland home.

I hope you have a terrific weekend!

Obligatory post transfer orientation vegan donut run.

This long weekend started out with a dose of sleep deprivation and a day full of new things in Bellingham. After a long drive home after night lab I caught a few hours of sleep before getting up early to head to Bellingham for my new student transfer orientation. But of course when in Bellingham, you must do fun things and eat good food. So we ate at Soy House again, because that place is amazing, and also picked up some vegans donuts. After all that fun I was pretty exhausted, so the rest of the weekend will probably be fairly relaxed. I think working on projects, snuggling my pup, shopping at my favorite health food store, and eating lots of good food is what’s on the agenda. Here are a few links from around the internet for you weekend…

A beautiful little camper.

Something delicious I want to make this weekend.

Some cool collage ideas, especially for a college dorm or apartment.

A desk and chair combo, I am in love with right now.

Also absolutely obsessed with these live edge mirrors right now.

Always loved paper crane art, seriously want to do something similar in my apartment.

Super cute necklace.

I know Valentine’s day is already over, but this is too cute not to share.

Cute weekend sewing project.

How I feel whenever I am surrounded by non college student food.

I hope you have a terrific weekend!

Driving over Snoqualmie  pass last weekend.

This week has been a busy one for me and when I was finally done today, I didn’t know what to do with myself! I had nowhere I had to be, nowhere I had to drive to, just me and a whole lot of time. I started out this lovely weekend with lunch with a good friend, then proceeded to finish a knitting project.  I am hoping to take some time for me tomorrow and so far that looks like going to yoga and maybe a hike. Anyway, I hope you all had a good week and don’t forget that despite the mess you can find yourself in some weeks, to remember that it will all be okay in the end. Here are a few links from around the internet for your weekend…

Tiny houses, my new obsession.

8 face masks to try out this weekend, I tried the banana turmeric one tonight.

Beautiful beetroot seeds that I want to buy to plant in the spring.

A beautiful blog.

Um, this looks amazing…if only I had a kitchen this weekend.

A song I’ve been listening to on repeat this week.

How to be an active ally to immigrants and refugees.

Something to remember amidst the chaos of the past couple weeks.

I woke up this morning to discover that it was -11ºF outside, I had to blow dry my hair for the first time in months for the fear that my hair would freeze off. It feels like winter here will never end, but at least I have a warm bed to curl up in when I don’t have class. It is too cold to go outside this weekend, but I am not really sure what I am going to be up to. I definitely need to knit a hat, otherwise I think my ears might freeze off! I hope you had a good week and your winter is much milder than mine. Here are a few links from around the internet for your weekend…

I wish I was somewhere warm like this

Healthy hot chocolate

Cute paper flowers that won’t die in the cold.

Walla Walla is a great place to go cycling! This is about 3 miles away from my college.

What are you up to this weekend? I had a busy first week of college and I was so thankful when Friday finally came. I celebrated surviving the first week with an 8mile bike ride on Friday. It is still sunny and fairly warm here in Walla Walla, so it’s good to soak up the warmth and sun while I still can. Saturdays are always days of rest and fun and my Sundays are usually for doing grocery shopping, laundry, and getting ahead on my homework for the week. Here are a few links from around the internet….

An eco-friendly blog that I’ve fallen in love with!

A good post about eating healthy and vegan in college.

Sad, but interesting NY Times article.

If you need a little cuteness in your life check out this doggie instagram.

As a pre-med student, this podcast sounds pretty interesting.

These otters are just too cute.

A really good article about the sugars you should fear, and that fats that you shouldn’t.

These look amazing and they are still healthy!

Shopping waste free at the farmers market.

I hope you are having a terrific weekend!

Friday Favorites just got a new name, thanks to an eventful Friday yesterday. Yesterday was move in day for me at Walla Walla University. This is a weekend full of new people and new experiences, and a surprising amount of rain. Here are a few links around the internet to look at this weekend…

If you are an avid reader looking for new good books, check out Book Mark. I just discovered it today!

I now lack my parents fully stocked kitchen, but if I was home I would give this fall recipe a try. (And modify a few things to make it dairy free)

Moving to college or any big life change tends to bring along some kind of anxiety, here is a tip and two apps that I’ve found helpful so far.

An interesting article about riding your bike, I’m not sure if I am going to be using this much in the flat lands of Walla Walla, but it’s still good advice.

A good blog post if you are a fellow freshman starting college this fall.

A really cute store created buy a Youtuber in Utah.

Have a terrific weekend!
