Things I Love in Spring

Hello there!  Since it's June, I guess it's not really Spring any more- well actually, the calendar does say it is I suppose...but when it's 90 degrees or above for most days, I'm sorry, but that's Summer isn't it?

Lots of things have been going on lately that have been keeping me very busy and making my life full!  I've been spending a lot of time with my special someone, which has been fabulous.  I've been making more jewelry for my Etsy shop, SimpleCircleDesigns.  I bought a sewing machine and have been learning how to alter my own clothes.  And, I've also started eating an all RAW diet! Which, surprisingly, hasn't been as difficult as I thought it was going to be.  But maybe that's just because I've been on every other diet already?  Ha ha!  Well, more about my new raw lifestyle in my next post...which will be soon!  Not like 3 months from now.

So, I don't know about anyone else, but when I see a photograph of something or someone that I perceive as beautiful, I just have to save it!  It doesn't seem to matter what or who it is, just looking at it again makes me happy.  So, here are a few of those things I've come across recently.


Yes, it's true...Louis Vuitton Mary Jane's.  Aren't they gorgeous?


And these two are part of a Banana Republic campaign featuring Trina Turk designs- 
and sold only on Gilt.com.  But I just love her vivid auburn hair, her luminous skin, the bright contrast of colors, especially with the red nails and lips, her lovely little wing tipped eye liner- and the photography!  Wow, really beautifully done!

I've been really good and consistent at working out lately too, besides my healthful diet, and I've really been interested in doing more yoga.  I used to do it fairly regularly, but that hasn't been for a few years. These are some of the beautiful poses that I would love, love, love to be able to do...




I'm not actually sure what they are all called, except the first one is the Tree pose.  
The last one looks pretty killer huh?  One day I will do it!

Well, I'm going to start posting more about my raw diet with recipes and things soon, but if anyone has any advice, web sites, books, recipes, or anything else you could share with me, I'm totally open to help!  Thanks!
