Its one of those weeks! How about a little Pinterest Therapy?

When the whole office has one of those days collectively, you know its only a matter of time before stress just bugs us out. Scratch out days..because its been a shitty few days.  Work has been emotionally and mentally draining.  A whole new test of why I’m still there.

Because I desperately want to write hate mail to the provincial government but that probably won’t turn out too good for me.  Then I got some unreasonable client issues and man, its been just a whirlwind of crazy.  Plus, I realized that I didn’t just mess up the postal code on one order that’s already in shipping but a second one also.  Moving, my friends.  That hardest part is remembering the damn postal code!!

*takes a deep breath*I didn’t get a post up earlier today because of everything happening at once but now I’m in desperate need of some positive change.

My solution: Pinterest Therapy! 🙂

1st happy: Flowers!

Borage Flower

Borage

What is seriously nicer than coming home to a vase of flowers or a pot (if you are a really awesome gardener)? I realized that I’m doomed from just the direction my house is facing for flowers so I’ve given up.  From all those plants I bought last spring, my geranium was doing so great until the last week so now I only have 2 plants surviving and another one doing better because I gifted it to my mom.

Either way, this flower is so pretty! Also, I’m excited that I get to start planning out Chinese New Year flower shopping. A good reason to have another lovely vase of flowers.  I have one right now because the boyfriend was mega sweet and gave me some lilies the other day to cheer me up.

2nd happy: soft furry kittens

I love animals in general and mini versions of any animal is absolutely adorable (except for crawly bugs). Just look at this furball.  It looks like a tiny snowball! Hmm…reminds me that I need to head off to give my kitty a kiss and a cuddle first! 🙂

3rd happy: Breakfast food

Smoked salmon egg avocado

Breakfast food!

It doesn’t have to be in the AM to love breakfast food.  I love it all the time! I mean, look at that, doesn’t this look so awesome? Breakfast food makes me happy.  Its all happy colors too 🙂 Fruits, avocado, salmon, eggs all look so fantastic! And even if you don’t like this, think about bacon, everything is so much more awesome with crispy bacon.

4th happy: Pretty dresses

Pretty dresses

In a post quite a while, I’ve mentioned that when I’m feeling really bad, I like to get all pretty. You know, put on a cute dress and just channel in the pretty.  It kind of makes me feel better plus, I’ve turned into quite a crazy clothes shopper and I’m extremely poor after the holidays so the only shopping I have is fake version of it on Pinterest 😉

So many reasons to love Pinterest and thats one of the best ones.  Kills time and saves money…haha!

5th happy: Sweets and Baking!

Earthquake cake

 

C’mon! No words to describe that.  I’m working on that Baking Through Disney project. I can’t imagine all the fun stuff thats going to be so thats where my happy place is.  Baking is just all sorts of awesome.  I haven’t had time to bake this week (or last one) but looking up great ideas are equally great.

6th happy: Hot/Handsome Guys & The 100!Ricky Whittle

I’m going like crazy obsession phase of The 100 especially since its absolutely awesome with its weekly updated episodes 🙂 And honestly, The 100 isn’t even about the hot guys or whatnot.  Other than Ricky Whittle, not sure I see anyone exceptionally hot but the characters all have something that really gets me to just love them.  But searching up hot (shirtless) guys are a huge thing for me on Pinterest so look at this hot shot of Ricky Whittle.  He’s in The 100 and his character is awesome!

AND FINALLY!

7th happy: Quotes

Man walking down road at sunset

 

I’m feeling oodles better.  Now if I can just fight off this cold that keeps wanting to get worse. Still, everything feels a little bit better! I’m ready to take on tomorrow.  Its finally Friday! 🙂 I’m still debating what to post tomorrow but I’ll be working on that in a little bit.

What makes you happy when you’re feeling down?

Music also helps and I’ll be putting together an obsessions post extremely soon 🙂

Late Night September Pinterest Therapy

What happened to August, right? It sped by so fast that I haven’t quite registered what happened, especially after Fantasia Festival ended.  All I know is I’m sitting here and realized how I just got so behind in blogging.  Its good though, because I did take a little break and my mind is now racing with new idea and projects and I’m outlining a bunch of stuff for next year.  I also accepted (again) that blogging actually  motivates me to do a lot of stuff so when I decided at the beginning of 2014 to become more focused and less versatile, that didn’t really work out and I’m slowly building it back to versatility but with some order 😉 Not sure how thats going to work but it will by the time my thoughts stop racing about frantically…

Either way, Pinterest therapy is due for this past week.  Work has been intensely crazy and it came pretty suddenly out of nowhere and I wanted to just wallow under my covers in bed and watch TV (and movies) all day.  Of course, reality is rather different.  The stress even caused some intense nightmares resulting in some sleepless nights. Seeing as Monday and this new week is just about to come around, I decided a late night Pinterest therapy is definitely the right way to go!

Lets go! 🙂

1) Priorities and Choices 

Inspirational quotes

Just saying, I’m starting and ending with a quote that I found on Pinterest.  First one goes with my actual state of mind.  I’m reorganizing my priorities right now and its shifting stuff around so yes, I’m saying no to certain less important things in my life right now.

Totally feeling this quote 🙂

2) DIY Terrariums Terrarium

I’ve been completely in love with making a terrarium and I have no idea why.  Maybe because it just looks so cute and would be the most classy decoration EVER! Don’t you think?

Have you ever built a terrarium?

3) Importance of Staying HydratedWater

I’m going to go right ahead and admit that drinking water and staying hydrated is so necessary (and I know that) but I fail miserably every single day.  I end up binging 4 glasses of water before bedtime and drinking next to nothing during the day. So yes, I’m starting to rely on eating a lot of fruits during the day to help with that.

Health is mega important so I’m working on being more proactive at keeping it up 😉

4) Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries

On that healthy note, I love healthy twists on food.  We’ll all heard of zucchini fries (and I’d like to eventually make that) but my undying love for avocado is definitely making this one go up on my to-do list.  It just looks so delicious.

5) Kitten pile!

Cute Kittens

Half of the reason I ever got onto Pinterest was for all the cuteness overload. I’m a cat or dog person but sleeping kittens and especially a kitten pile-up is just massively adorable! Excuse me while I got search up my cat and cuddle her in my arms a little…

…..okay, I’m back….let’s continue!

6) Cookie Monster CocktailCookie Monster Cocktail

On the whole line of cute, who doesn’t think cookie monster is cute? I can’t use healthy because I’m sure the health merit of this is close to zero… so lets just put that aside.  We all get to indulge once in a while, right’?

Well, unless I find some way to substitute some of these ingredients, this really only for your viewing pleasure 😉

7) Arrow & Stephen Amell & Emily Bett Rickards

Arrow

I’ve been binge watching Arrow so excuse me when I’d like to say that I’m absolutely in love with Stephen Amell and you will know more about that in the post on Monday (its still Sunday in my mind even though its slightly after midnight as I finish typing this up) but Emily Bett Rickards’s Felicity Smoak is just the most hilarious character and she’s just so nerdy awesome! 🙂

8) Peanut Butter Stuffed French ToastPeanut butter stuffed French Toast

Isn’t that delicious? Seriously, that is food porn, okay?

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with learning how to make french toast and in a way that I can eat it.  Its one of my next baking challenges so I’ve been pinning French Toast of all kinds. This looks like I need to probably go do a 5 hours intense workout to burn and toss that whole proactive healthy living thing I was talking about earlier out the window, but this looks like it’s a party in my mouth and I mean like that bite where everything just melts into this absolutely out of this world awesomeness feeling.

9) Vibes

Vibes

They do.  I get vibes from the people around me when I interact. Some people just give off a strong vibe of whatever it is.   Your vibe may not be all that accurate for anyone else but its a first impression and its a feeling that your body and mind (or maybe your heart) is telling you.  I’ve learned the hard way, that I probably should admit to those vibes more often 😉

Thats it for tonight! 🙂 I’m all relaxed, charged and ready for the coming week!

What have you been pinning?
