On My Mind: March 2012

Another On My Mind post, which is based on the questions in the March 2012 issue of InStyle.
Things on my mind other than color blocking and how to wear leopard flats:
I wish people would keep their 2 cents to themselves. The last time I checked, 2 cents couldn't get you anywhere in this economy.  

It's funny how sometimes people can say super hurtful things and get away with it because others don't want confrontation. But I can't say, 'Come over here so I can punch you in the face' without being a jerk. But seriously...come over here.

When in doubt, read a bunch of Ryan Gosling memes to make you feel better.

What's on your mind?

And to answer some questions from the Sunshine Award that Swarnali tagged me in:

Did you meet any of your fellow bloggers--how was the experience? Yes, I've met some bloggers who live in my area through local blogger meetups. I've also met bloggers from around the country when I went to IFB last year. I loved the experience because it's wonderful to get to see someone in person after you've been stalking reading their blogs forever. I wish these bloggers were local so I didn't have to see them only once or twice a year.

What is your favorite dish? With all the great food in the world, it just wouldn't be fair to pick a favorite. But I will say that I used to love all types of pastas, (specifically penne in a light wine sauce with sun-dried tomatoes and mushrooms), and I'm also a total fan of sushi (particularly a shrimp tempura roll with masago and crab meat).

What is your favorite book, movie and song? These things change for me all the time. I can't really pick a favorite anything, but I'll tell you what I'm currently loving.
Book of the Moment - The Hunger Games trilogy
Movie of the Moment - 21 Jump Street
Song of the Moment - Phantogram "Don't Move"

Is there anything better for daily wear than leopard print flats and a blazer?

What's on my mind today is what I posted for "Things I Love Wednesday." And besides those random things, colors, crayons, songs I can't remember the name of or if I even really like any of them, designing, designing, designing....

That's it... lettersinatreehouse.blogspot.com

I love the "on my mind" I know, I know, you didn't ask for my 2 cents, but you really did a great job with it :)

Wil Harris said...

I love your comment about the two cents! People always seem to put their thoughts and finger on your problem when they're the ones with the problems.
Right now chocolate is on my mind so I'm about to go buy some :)

Jenny @ Spry On The Wall said...

Great post! I love your 2 cents comment, seriously, I wish people would just not talk sometimes!

Sam said...

I love these types of posts that you do...I like your current style with the blazers and flats. Pops of colour are a great way to update the wardrobe! I fully agree with you about the '2 cents' thing, some things don't need to be said.

Hey Cheryl! I believe in minimal makeup too and love the punch of color that is out in both clothes and accessories. People say some stupid crap. Try to let it bounce off of you. You're a good person, but there are so many that are not. It's ashame. ((HUG))
