Happy Holla-Days!

I hope you all are having a very bright and joyous holiday season! I'm spending so much time with loved ones and my heart is so full. I've eaten way too much food and treats, but I just can't help myself! I hope happiness fills your homes! 

Song and Doodle #70

In between all the holiday music i've been listening too, I keep finding the cover Whole Wide World by the Bahamas sneaking into my playlists. I really adore this song. Overall its just a feel good song. Especially for us around the holidays that are on the more single side of things. This song is just full of hope in the midst of the winter daze. Bahamas has such a unique soothing voice, I love it! I do love the original, but this cover is just the tops! PS- I'm loving all this typography iPad practice lately!

Lovely Things: Solstice Vibes

Today is one of my favorite days of the year! I have always loved the winter solstice. The whole day is mysterious and magical. The shortest day of the year and longest night of the year. I always feel like I need to call out to universe and ask for the days to be longer. In the midst of frozen winter all you can hope for is more sun. I think if you ask correctly with a sincere heart the universe will listen! I could rant on more about it but instead I complied a list of some lunar-y solstice vibes. So many cute things out there!  

 My two favorite things, the moon and beeeees! (Gimme Flair)
How cute is this DIY moon lamp? (Johanna Rundel)
Beautiful lunar calendar to keep track of the moon! (Durido)
 I love this whole set. Although wearing them all at once might be a bit much! (Layered and Long)
You can't have a successful solstice with out a fire pit! This one is just lovely. (Bad Idea Supply)

Happy Solstice my friends! Hope for longer days!


As an early Christmas gifty to myself I got my very first tattoo! The entire day was completely magical! I've been stocking different tattoo artists on instagram and I finally found the perfect one! You can see her instagram HERE. All her work is incredibly dreamy! A little surreal, a little nature-y and a whole lotta texture! I'm in love with all her illustrations so I knew right away anything she designed I would love. I gave her a brief description of what I wanted and she had 3 of the most amazing little sketches!
Isn't it amazing!! My heart still melts when I look at it! I got a honeybee split in half to represent me and my twin. (Also two halves are better than one, obviously!) I also wanted a little fire and water tossed in. My Hawaiian middle name (Keahi) means fire and my twins middle name (Hi'ilawe) is a waterfall in Hawaii. I love the style and it is everything I had ever dreamed of getting! The placement is spot on and ugh I can't get over how much I love it!! 

I wanted my first one to have a good story. So I choose someone who was a little further away (about a 2 1/2 hour drive) and make a day of it! Her studio was just a little space in the back of a crepery. The little town was adorable and lightly covered in frost. It was so picturesque! We went to a small restaurant for lunch and wen to this interesting lil' junk store. From waking up early to getting home exhausted the whole day was a dream! I made some amazing memories and it was exactly what my heart and soul needed! This is also the last thing on my "being brave" list for 2017 (which I'll do a long post about it all later!)

I hope my next one is equally amazing. Its definitely going to be hard to beat! 

November Art Journal!

This last months art journal got real layer-ee! I kinda like how it turned out. I shouldn't have added so much stuff on, but hopefully I've learned from my mistakes! The first two pages and last page are my favorite! I'm totally on board with the whole trendy bug thing! Give me all the moths! I think December is going to come and go so fast, I hope I can keep up! I better get workin!
