My favorite things in May

Tiffany & Co. I love you ring

May was a wonderful month. The weather finally got a lot warmer and bright and I found this new energy and am full of ideas and inspiration. Even though there were moments when I felt helpless, I took it one day at a time. I learned that it doesn’t make sense to stress over things that we have no control over (and also that you cannot help someone, who doesn’t want to be helped), instead, I chose to focus on the things I love, things I’m grateful for. Here are some of my favorite things in May.

Even though my birthday was in the beginning of April, I still cannot get enough of this beautiful gift that my little sister gave me: Tiffany “I love you” ring. The ring has a very cute and elegant, hand-written script all around it, and I absolutely love it.

My new blogging space. I finally invested in a new computer (birthday gift to myself). I’ve been slacking with my YouTube videos lately (last video I published was on March 22!), but that’s mainly because my laptop couldn’t handle editing videos, rendering files took forever, it would freeze all the time-just unbearable. Now I’m hoping to put out videos on regular basis, preferably once a week, so make sure you’re subscribed! ;)

Owls. Just in case some of you guys don’t already know this, I’m obsessed with owls. This past month there were few new additions to my little “collection”. beautiful bronze owl that my husband got me (I use it as a book-end); tiny little owl key-chain that my sister got me (this one is too cute it even makes an “owl cry”); forever 21 lip-balm (the actual lip balm sucks, but the owl is adorable); and “I have an owlitude” magnet that I got at Spencer’s.

Cows. We spent Memorial Day weekend in Upstate NY,  I loved seeing farm animals everywhere. Yes, I was that person to pull over on the side of the road to take a picture of a cow. I may be a city-girl now, but I grew up around farm animals and can’t wait for the day to come, when my husband finally lets me get a pet pig.

It was absolutely beautiful up there, the weather was great and everything looked picture-perfect (I took that second picture with my phone, how amazing does it look?).

Green sandwiches & colorful salads- love. I’ve been putting  avocado on pretty much everything lately.

I’m so excited for Summer being right around the corner and can’t wait to see what the month of June brings!

  • Such a sweet gift from your sister, I love it! :) I’m in love with your owls!

    • Thanks Melissa <3

  • This is what I love about you Paula; you’re such a positive, upbeat person with an amazing attitude and wonderful outlook to boot! You always turn negatives into positives, I really do admire you ever so much <3 <3

    I love the sentimentality of this post, it's was so sweet to read! Your sister's gift to you is so precious, and such a beautiful gesture, one that you can treasure forever.

    Can't wait to see more of your videos, yay :D Always enjoy them so much, and your personality always shines through so beautifully, you go girl ;)

    Aww and the pictures of the cows are ever so cute! Hehe! :D

    • Naaww thank you so much Sophie! I have my moments when I really wish I didn’t have to get up in the morning and could stay in bed all day, crying. But I think I came a long way from being deeply depressed and hating the whole world and everyone in it to now loving everything about it and trying to see the good in everything, heh :)

      I honestly don’t like listening to myself when I film videos, I’ve also been told numerous times that I talk too fast or that I sound bored.. So I think that discouraged me a little bit, but I’m ready to get back to filming. I love editing videos, learning about the software, the lighting, the settings and all that. Plus being a part of the youtube community and interacting with subscribers is pretty cool ;)

      Haha I know! I sure love my cows (and pigs and goats!). I really hope that one day I really do get to live on a farm ;);)

  • Can I just address how stunning your photos are!!! You need to do a nice little post on your photography skills and the Tiffany and Co ring is just everything…you are one lucky girl with an amazing sister!!!

    • Thanks so much Liv! I was actually thinking of doing a post on photography. I’m no expert, but I’ve learned a lot about photography since I started blogging <3. My lil sis is quite amazing, thank you!
