October: Leaves and Halloween


So today I have some photos from this past month! I believe fall is probably my favorite time of the year… but I seem to think that about every season (except winter!) once it comes around… but I definitely do enjoy fall. How the leaves smell. Pumpkin EVERYTHING. Scarves and boots. Yup. It’s all good.

The first set of photos are from a visit to Washington Park at the beginning of the month. It’s one of my favorite places to go on a nice day, and there is almost always something going on. Plus it has a beautiful view of Music Hall.





The last photo is right before I went to see The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses at Music Hall! I love the fountain at night.

This next set of photos is from an adventure around my neighborhood I went on one cloudy afternoon.





I like taking pictures of interesting objects and textures…

Now how about a few Halloween photos??
I wish I had more…. I was of course a Minion from Despicable Me! The other photo is of my brother and his girlfriend as Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World… I thought that was pretty amazing!

Well, that sums up my October… Hope you all are enjoying this season!

Lately… In Instagrams

Oh, hey!

Since I’ve been telling you guys how busy I’ve been lately… well I decided to share with you some of the recent things I’ve been up to. So here are some Instagrams from the past month or so!

Lots of fires! Like really.

Lots of Franklin County. (My home)

Alt-J in concert! That was pretty great!
Indianapolis adventures.

My best friend’s bachlorette party!

And then of course the wedding!

Steak-N-Shake all the time. (and creeping on this guy) :]



Lots of hanging out in the city trying to figure out where to move!

The decision.

Moving day!


Well. That pretty much sums it all up… a bit. Of course there is more. But a little at a time. :]

So. I Moved!

Hello, everyone!

So if you’ve been reading my posts lately you’ll know that I’ve been rather busy. Well. Part of that is the fact that I have moved! That’s right. I’m out all on my own now!

I am so excited to have found the apartment I did. It’s in the exact area I wanted, for a price I like, and it’s pretty much just an awesome space! So having said that, I figured I would show you guys a few photos of my new living quarters…

This is of course a work in progress… (hence why there are no photos of the bedroom.. it’s very much still in progress). There’s tons of windows and hence natural light, and super high ceilings. Plus its located in the historic Over the Rhine area of Cincinnati, Ohio. This area has a not so great history, but recent efforts to revitalize it are going well. Very well. Some of my favorite bars and restaurants are here as well as a super cute vintage shop.

Well that is that. I’ll be posting updates and little home projects on here as I work on my space, so be on the lookout for that!

Cincinnati Reds.


So I had been wanting a new Cincinnati Reds shirt for awhile. Baseball is for certain my favorite sport. I love going to games. The atmosphere is something that you just can’t find anywhere else. Anyways, I’m a poor jobless (but searching diligently!) 22 year old… in other words, I can’t afford a new shirt. I can’t afford milk.

In light of my predicament, I decided to take it upon myself to just make myself a new Reds shirt! I had a few medium mens shirts from a pack I bought to make my brother a birthday present… and I had upcycled one of them before (post about it here) so I decided to just go along with that again. I used some of the handy fabric I have in my closet (thank goodness I had red!) and got to work!


And the back:

Well I hope you all like it and are inspired to try some new creative things yourselves!
