Thursday Randoms

This messenger/laptop bag is one of the most practical and adorable bags I've ever seen. I am totally in love with the colors and the pattern and feel I would look endlessly hip toting it around.  Via SHELTER

This incredible card pretty much says it all - camping is exactly where I'd rather be.  Via Ashley Pahl Paper Goods

Yesterday I went to the beach since we were suffering through a heat wave (which I didn't suffer, I quite enjoyed) and the public pools aren't open yet (come on, it's June!).  The moment I stepped foot on the sand, it was everywhere.  In my beach bag, on not just my legs but my arms as well, all over my book and it didn't forget about my cell phone and keys! The water was freezing as per usual but it was a pleasant spot to soak up some sun and make some progress in my current book.

This Viva Vena for Vena Cava dress is perfect for summer.  It's simple, easy to wear and the screen-printed detail is pretty awesome.  Plus, it's on sale!  Via Refinery 29

This vintage cake tin is calling my name.  I'm such a complete sucker for vintage kitchenware even though I only have a few vintage pieces right now.  But this tin with its adorable floral decoupage would be pretty amazing to have, don't you think?  Via am radio

Last but not least, this Vessel print from Treat is full of vibrant colors that spark something within me.  Maybe it's the aqua + red combo with hints of yellow and black (my favorite color palette ever) or maybe it's something else.  Either way, I love it and feel inspired from it.

What's calling your name today?

the beach photo is quite lovely and yellena's work is amazing. She actually did some work with a lighting company where she had her illustrations put on white glass light bulb shades. i have included the link if you want to take a look!
