The small, totally portable, navy and lime coin purse is too cute! My wallet is somehow always overflowing with change; this will be a cute and convenient place to store my coins. The vintage-looking, brass key and leaf necklace is right up my alley in taste of jewelry. It's simple and versatile; I could wear it with anything from a v-neck tee to my little black dress. Of course, who could possibly say no to Zooey Deschanel hand painted greeting cards, really? Hah! They're flippin' adorable, I love 'em. The pink belted button down is irresistible! I love its embroidered embellishments across the chest, as well as the longer length of the sleeves. If you haven't checked out this addictive online shopping haven, please do yourself a favor and mosey on over. Not to mention, some sellers have their items priced to sell, fast! Etsy allows any modern day girl to find unique, conversation-starter items at prices that won't break your pretty little piggy bank. It's a win-win situation, correct? :)

I've long outgrown Boys Like Girls, but I've always remained a steadfast fan of that particular line. As the unmistakable magic of summer is slowly fading, I've tried my very best to hold onto it by compiling a well-thought-out playlist of songs that I continually played on repeat for hours on end over the last two months; for your listening pleasure, of course! These are the kind of songs that make me want to slop on some sunscreen, grab my aviators, and hoof it down to the beach. Ready, set, listen:
- "Meat Market"- Everybody Else
- "Where Do We Go?"- Sandrine
- "Young San Francisco"- Boy In Static
- "Fireflies"- Owl City
- "Skipping Stepping Stones"- Castledoor
- "Weightless"- All Time Low
- "Viva La Gloria!"- Green Day
- "Better Together"- Jack Johnson
- "Mr. Pitiful"- Matt Costa
- "The Way We Get By"- Spoon
Happy listening! -Lindsay
I'll admit, in the words of Motion City Soundtrack- the future freaks me out. I'm going to college in the fall, taking on new challenges, and holding a lot more responsibility upon my shoulders. I feel like in a way, I've been dreading growing older. This quote inspires me to savor every day I am awarded, bask in the sun of youthfulness, and take what life throws at me as it comes. In many countries around the world, the life expectancy is 40 years old. In America, we're almost guaranteed double that amount, but many of us stop truly living life when troubles knock us down upon our knees. I promise you all; that will never be me.
I brought home a fitted, striped cardigan that will be excellent for the fall! Aside from a small tear near the shoulder, which is totally fixable, it was perfect for me. The chartreuse sundress was a no-brainer; of course I had to have it! For a mere dollar? C'mon folks! The light lavender swing coat instantly reminded me of Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O. I think it will be perfect for the fall, or even the winter, paired with a simple tee underneath, dark wash skinny jeans, and flats. I was surprised shoes were even on sale, but heck, they were! The black, patent leather, peep toe flats were adorable and calling my name. They're simple and fun, yet dressy enough to wear out at night. Perfect, I say! The salmon-colored tank really appealed to me because of the crochet detailing around the neck. I'm such a sucker for anything with any kind of stitched detailing, really! Lastly, the emerald green checkered scarf! Call them last season, but I still adore these scarves. They're fun, easy to wear, and have enough personality and fringe to keep me content all winter long. I can't wait to sling that sucker around my neck and go play in the autumn leaves!
I've found myself wearing more and more fun and flirty sundresses, looking for vintage pumps while on my thifting sprees, and pairing together fruity color combinations that I'd never thought of before. Her style seems effortless and fun, and I adore that.
In the past week, I've watched all of her films that I hadn't seen before, and loved each and every one of them. I honestly think we're dealing with one of Hollywood's most underrated actresses here. Not many people in the spotlight stay true to themselves, but Zooey certainly has. From her heartwarming movie roles to her laugh-out-loud talk show interviews, the sarcastic and cunning 29-year-old always stays grounded, humble, and ever-so-witty.

I just got an e-mail back from them, and I'm a finalist! Crazy stuff, I know. My video entry is below, feel free to watch it if you'd like. Of course, being the nerd I am, I threw in my own quirks to the video and added in a Napoleon Dynamite reference at the end. Ohhh, I had to. Here's the Youtube link as well, just in case the video I posted whacks out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRp9JAIoQ3w
Hopefully I have a decent chance at earning a spot in the 15! It would be crazy cool, not gonna lie one bit on that one. I'll find out from the magazine later this summer, so I'll keep everyone posted :)
I have no shame about my unrequited love of thrifting. It's my most favorite hobby.
Ever found something so outrageously amazing at a thrift store that you've been dying to tell the world about it? Tell me about it here, in a comment!
I wish I could say I was bringing home that adorable puppy, but it's just wishful thinking! I know I'll be living off of green tea for those all-nighter study sessions, there's no denying it. Obviously, the I-just-rolled-out-bed-and-I'm-coming-to-class-this-way look isn't exactly my idea of college wear. I love the idea of high waisted skirts that are still wearable for the fall. Pair one with a simple tee and a bright, fitted cardigan and you're good to go! I just recently found those black moccasins for $10. Excuse me, but I have to say it...score!
I'm in love with my new Dell laptop. It's honestly comparable to a Mac, which is supposedly the God of all computers. Eh, who knows.
I don't want this to be a conventional blog. I want this to be a blog for people, real people, who just like me feel too full of life to express it all at once. This is the blog for those who will spend hours rummaging through a thrift store, just for that one unique find. This is the blog for those of us whose minds are constantly revolving, thinking of new ideas, wanting to take the whole world on and make a change but there simply aren't enough hours in a day. In a week. In a lifetime.
I want this to be a place to connect with others and leave a mark on their lives in some positive way.
Anything that interests me, I'll post. Great reads, my latest musical obsessions, fashion, and quite attractive men. Good causes I'm for, yummy tea, and ways to get involved. Even the little silly things that simply make me smile. I want to be a writer for a magazine, or at least be involved with a magazine as my career, so why not start here by connecting with the rest of the world?
So. This is my mission statement. Ya dig?
