learning things and finding things

Happy first of July!
Today is actually a much cooler day than what we've been having recently, so I'm staying in and getting tons of work done. And number one on my list is obviously a blog update. It's been kind of a while...I think it's weird when bloggers have to apologize for not posting every day, I understand that they have real lives too!
Like I said, it's been HOT. I've been doing lots of this....
And last week I broke out the popsicle mold (that had not been used in 10+ years) and made mojitopops!
Strawberries, mint, limeade, and freeze. You could add rum, but these were delicious without it.
Also, do you see the sewing machine in the background? I learned how to use it, finally! Been hemming skirts like a mad woman.
So here's my outfit.
Tank: Old Navy, Shorts: Rue 21 (hemmed)
You know, nothing special here.
BAM. I found this in a long-forgotten hair accessories drawer, and I believe it was given to me as a gift about 10 years ago by my parents' friend from Brazil. I can't tell you how happy I was that I found this again. I used to wear crazy hair clips like this every day.
My boyfriend found it pretty interesting. He said it looks like a Peruvian Flute Band.
(South Park watchers should know immediately what episode he's referring to.)
So it's been a pretty nice week of learning things (how to use a sewing machine) and finding forgotten treasures (popsicle mold and my Peruvian Flute Band hair clip).
Here's to a spectacular July!


  1. Wow, I really love the hair clip. How cute and different!

  2. that hair clip is totally rad, I love that it's unique in a non-tacky way. And those mojito pops look great...did you leave the strawberries whole to freeze? Now you've got my wheels spinning for the 4th of July!!!

  3. What? Bloggers have lives??? :)

    That hair clip is beyond amazing...hmm. My sister has a set of Worry Dolls, I bet she'd give them too me to make into a hairclip.

  4. Oh my goodness! Those hair clips are the best. I never knew anything existed like them!

    Best wishes from one blogger to another,
