East Coastin'

my view from where I stayed

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------◈◈-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was able to see my sister for a belated Birthday visit (20th-21st.) 

So that's what we did! We took the normal 3 hour trip directly across the state, made a few pit-stops here and there and wound up in the beautiful place that I am happy to call my future home. My blood pressure goes up whenever I get the opportunity to go road trippin' to the East Coast. There's always something to do, people to meet and places to go. It's a total change of scenery compared to where I live (*cough cough* a small podunk retirement community of a town.) Thank goodness that I will be attending University there next fall and if things work out, I may be moving there this summer.

 Saturday; We got to stay right on the beach. Literally. The view was unbelievable and I wish I was able to capture more photos of our mini vaca. The day 1/2 we were there allowed us to wonder around. We went to the local Green Market that occurs every Saturday. I was able to purchase another little plant to add to my collection. Lets just say, help, I'm addicted and I can't stop. We soaked up the sun + the environment and enjoyed it whilst sippin' on some fresh chai, along with coffee, while we were walking around. 

Later that afternoon, my sister decided to take us to the mall which is two stories and includes a Starbucks not only on the top floor but ALSO the second floor. I don't know whether or not to complain? Oh well. We ate there for a late lunch/early dinner then adventured around. My brother went clothing shopping for himself, it was about time he did, while my mom and I just browsed and goofed around. 

Another highlight of that afternoon was passing by someone familiar of all sorts. I am so awkward I swear. I never go up to people I know/know of and say hello or introduce myself. Especially when it comes to a guy I'm severely attracted to, I just clam up and have a panic attack. Ironic enough, I've seemly been bumping into him every single time I've been in town recently. A sign? Maybe? Time will tell. However every time this has happened my inner-girl comes out and I may or may not squeal eternally. 

Fresh tea leaves and other goodness

The new addition to my "family"

Sunday; On our way to church, I ended up getting sick which made us get to the church late. That was a fun moment for me. We, being my mother and I, then waited outside until the service completed and once it let out we helped to clean/tidy up. Afterwards, we said our goodbyes and had to head home. It may have been a quick weekend but it was beautiful and I tried blueberry soda for the first time. So I'd say it was a success. Until next time...

With love,

Kaitlin's inspiration


 I adore plants. I tend to admire their natural beauty through my photography. Succulents, passion flowers, other desert plants and orchids tend to be my favorite. Honestly, to me, they are a God given gift put on Earth.  

 Prints & patterns. Anything detailed is a must.I love art in general but really in depth prints are what catch my eye. They can be anything from delicate to extravagant I love to wear them and I love to draw them. Definitely a huge statement piece when it comes to my own personal style. 


Coffee Coffee Coffee!! I feel like it's a very "in" thing right now but heck, I love it for it's beauty and taste. I can't go anywhere without my coffee. Sometimes my anxiety gets in the way, so for times like that I switch to green tea (huge benefits when it comes to your health.) So yes, coffee sparks huge inspiration for me.


Texture. I love things that give off vintage vibes. So when it comes to wear 'n tear, count me in! Especially when more than one color is involved, such as this piece. When I edit my photography, I am in love with layering my pictures. I also hope to somehow apply texture to my future dorm room, so we'll see. Also, when it comes to my nails I LOVE marblin' them. So texture is a huge plus.

Rings, fingers stacked full of rings. Seriously, when it comes to accessorizing rings is are my greatest weakness. If a future love interest ever was to get  me some sort of ring I could just melt right on the spot. When it comes to my own personal finger candy style, I love mixing golds with silvers. My all time favorite is knuckle rings (similar to the large ring on  right hand side of this photo.) Rings with gems (opal, amethyst and turquoise are my all time favs.) Basically they are my staple piece.

Etsy haul - I've fallen in love!

 So the summer weather has finally started to greet England after what has seemed the longest winter ever, and I have begun to think about summer shopping. Now toward the end of last summer I found some really sweet etsy shops but only managed to buy my bag my last post... so its pay day and I thoughts I'd start shopping. Here are a few bits and bobs. I'm only looking to buy two of the bags and the midi rings coming to a total under ten pounds! ( not including crappy shipping )
So for now Im going to leave you without links and when my stuff has arrived I will post pictures with links to the shops! Sorry, hope you enjoy!

With love

Breezy beach days, Easter and coffee

March 28th - April 4th; (THIS POST IS LONG OVERDO AND FOR THAT I APOLOGIZE IMMENSELY) The last week and a half has consisted of nothing more than laughter, genuinely good family moments, love and excitement (minus the overwhelming course work I have been managing.)  I can finally say that I am happy for once. I am slowly realizing that life is bittersweet, but for the best. You may have your rough patches and your lowest moments, but those help you learn to cherish and appreciate the sweetest moments in life. My sister came home on Thursday afternoon. It is always so great seeing her. I can honestly say, I have the best moments whenever she is around. Friday came around and we went to the beach at sunset. It was quite the chilly day I might add. Our brother and pup tagged along for the journey with hardly anyone was there. I felt like I was in heaven. 

Then Saturday rolled around. "Hoppy Easter" from the Sebul household. We attended our father's church while we watched him and his lovely fiance sing. It was beautiful. So coming from a family with the last name ending in "sky" you'd realize we're very much Polish. So sweet cheese was on the menu along with some nut rolls. I ended up passing out at 10pm while the rest of my family continued to play cards for hours on end. 

Then on Sunday, my mother, sister and I woke up nearly at 5am! Yes, you read that right. We attended the sunrise service at our local church. It was right on the water so the slight breeze and absolutely jaw-dropping watching the sunrise slowly climb up the horizon. I look forward to that every year. Of course, I would be lost without my coffee, so we made a quick pit stop to Starbucks before the service (thank goodness for early hours, Starbucks.)

All in all, the weekend was bliss. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store.

With love,

Daily blog and other inspiration.

Today was a very unsuccessful day. I missed my speak and listening test and didn't take anything into college with me because I was to hot and sticky and wanted to travel light since I had such a short day.. but any how I ended up in the library looking at textiles books and taking pictures of my pretty bag from all the way from thailand and my pretty sparkly nails. I swear I never used to be this Girly.

I also came across some really interesting stuff whilst being a blog addict. Super inspired but I have no time to create for myself at the moment and that is the worst. I must find time to create for myself or I'll lose motivation!


With Love
