DIY distressed and ripped knee jeans!

DIY-ripped-knee-distressed-jeans8A while back I did a big purge of my closet and realized that I have a LOT of jeans. They all fit, but they are all the same, just different washes.

Norwegian Recipes: Skillingsboller

Norwegian Recipes: SkillingsbollerIt’s been so rainy and droopy in San Francisco for the past few weeks. In one way I am loving it because honestly having sunny weather every single day is not all what it’s cracked up to be.

Happier with Gretchen Rubin

Almost every year, I start off with a ton of new years resolutions that I think will make me happier. Some I have been able to keep and some, well let’s just say I’ve kept them for a month or so and then moved on. Right before I headed to California the first time, my mom gave me a book called “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin and it completely changed the way I look at resolutions and goals. Instead of setting new years resolutions, you set one goal each month and focus on that. It could be anything from increasing your energy levels to working on relationships etc. Don’t get me wrong, I still set out some resolutions that seem super important in January and not so much in March or June, but that’s ok and overall it’s been a better solution for me.The Happiness Project with Gretchen Rubin - Review

Since then, I’ve been following Gretchen Rubin’s work and a while back, she started a podcast with her sister, Elizabeth Craft. It’s called Happier and I love it! Continue reading
