Coloring Books for Adults? Heck Yes!

I stumbled upon [another] Buzz Feed article this week. It was entitled ’17 Hobbies to try if you Suck at Hobbies.’ It caught my eye and had to read what they recommended. I’m not really one to have a hobby. If you count reading books, then yes I have an overly obsessive hobby. Some of these suggestions were fantastic!

The biggest thing in this article that I loved was the adult coloring book. Johanna Basford has created a coloring book for adults!!!!!! The article is here for views and information and inspiration for her books. I fell in love with them. When I was a kid I loved to draw. I really wanted to be fantastic at art and be this super chic artist. Well that didn’t happen. I’m bad at drawing. I see some of my art major friends and they draw these beautiful, intricate doodles and I’m over here drawing circle flowers and spirals.

Johanna’s designs are the most beautiful and awesome thing ever πŸ™‚ I cannot wait til I can get my book and start filling these beautiful pictures with color πŸ™‚


Handbags, Handbags, and OH! Handbags!

If anyone knows me, they will know that I love love love love love handbags!!! My top cabinet of my closet in my dorm room is stuffed full of my handbags. I never know which ones I will need/want so I keep a ton here. At home my entire upper shelf of my closet is full of handbags. I know that I will always have one that matches.

I will do a “What’s in my bag” post sometime soon. I can tell you this, I keep a ton of stuff in my bag. I’ve always loved big bags and totes. Lately though I’ve been working on trying get all my essentials into a small crossbody. But sometimes all my essentials for that day just doesn’t fit. My usual essential for a bag size is that it has to fit at least on book in it. I always have a book with me somewhere. This post here has a category of books I want to read this year. (If you keep checking back on it, you can see what I’m reading!) Whenever my wonderful boyfriend (he got me five, yes FIVE bags for our one year anniversary. He’s a keeper!!!) gets me a bag, he always knows to make sure that a book can fit inside.

I’m really am starting to like the smaller bags though. Much easier to carry. I came across this article today on Buzz Feed.Β It made me really think about what I carry in my bag and how often I should clean it out. Will I completely forget the awesomeness of a large bag? No. Will I clean my bag out more often? Oh Yes!
