Pick Me Up Wednesday #1 (07.17.13.)

Hello lovelies,

So it's Wednesday, middle of the work week. Ugh. They call it hump day for a reason (get yo' minds outta the gutter!... Just me? Oh. Well then...) We're all feeling a little tired and eagerly awaiting the weekend. I don't know about you but I'm feeling a little uninspired. So I did what any normal person does when they're seeking inspiration... I took to Pinterest! Insert shameless plug here: Follow my boards at:

Without further ado, here's a little something to get your creative juices flowing or just simply to put a smile on your face:

(So simple, yet so hard for us to do sometimes. Link)
(I love coming across pictures of Marilyn that I've never seen before. I love how there is nothing glamorous about this setting or her clothes, yet she's still so captivating.)
(These shoes make me wanna scream "Hells to the Yes!" Everything about these is delicious to my eyes.)
(Chuckle.Chuckle. So excited for Kate to pop! I'm totally one of those geeks on Royal Baby Watch.)
(Ingrid. Need I say more? If you've still never seen "Casablanca", do yourself a favour and watch it. It's a classic for a reason and one of my all time favourites. Link)
(I have been telling myself for YEARS that I am going to do day Erin... one day.)
(A wall that plays music when it rains. It is currently pouring buckets outside my window, and I can't help but think that life would be so much cooler if my house looked like this. Link)
(This man can do no wrong in my eyes. Always amazing, such a talent.Even when I hate the movie (ahem, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) I still think HE does amazing.)
(Tell me this isn't a fantastic idea!!? Use a map of the place you visited as the mat for the photo from your trip!)
(Tehee! Tehee!)
(I remember this episode. Total *face palm* moment.)
And on that note we'll end. Hopefully this put a little smile on your face and a little sparkle in your soul. 

Until next time,

Erin xx

Daily Tidbits:
  • It should be noted that in true Pinterest fashion, I spent 2 hours scrolling through the site making this post... it's a dangerous place that Pinteres. 
  • I bought different brand of cat litter because Walmart was out of my usual, and that was a big mistake! It's got some sort of fragrance in it that's giving me a headache. Argh! Beware the Arm n' Hammer kitty litter.
  • I have spent my last 2 days off watching nothing but the first two seasons of "Departures" Time well spent I say.
("The travel bug gets in you, and it's got you. One whole year - goes by in a blink.")


  1. Marilyn Monroe is one of my idol's so I love finding pictures of her like that too xo

    1. She is such an interesting figure in history. I gained even more respect for her after watching My Week with Marilyn.
