Katie Roof Frida & Me

Lazy Daze Via OnePiece

Anyone who knows me knows I love nothing more than lazing around with my pup. Whether we’re relaxing on the beach, reading in the backyard, or having a Lifetime movie marathon in bed, there is nothing better than cozying up to my little one while donning my adult onesie. Yep. My onesie.

This OnePiece has seriously taken over my life. I live in it. Honestly…  there is just something about being all swaddled up like a big baby. They are super soft, and insanely comfortable! Plus, the OnePiece being sported by some super fashionable celebs such as Vanessa Hudgens, Kylie Jenner, Little Mix, Derek Hough, and the guys of 1D.

Oh… and P.S. Frida and I are obsessed with this stuffed narwhal, or any narwhal for that matter.

How do you like to spend your lazy days??

Make My Day: Ode To The B&W Photo

 Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

Things aren’t always black & white… or are they? If you couldn’t already tell by my recent Instys, I’ve been REALLY into black and white photography as of late. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s Fall and I’m so over the bright brights of summer. Maybe it’s that my eye is always drawn to the juxtaposition of black and white highlights. Or… maybe it’s just the fact that black is my fav color, or rather lack of color [sorry. always has been. always will be.] Whatever the case may be… I’m into it.

I love photography. You’ll rarely see me without a camera around my neck. I never studied it which is probably why I’m constantly taking photos, learning new techniques, and striving to become better. Photography is so subjective which, to me, is the beauty of it. I think Warhol said it best…

This weekend I laid low [which was exactly what I needed]. I played around with some new g-free recipes [coming soon ;) ] , took a beautiful run through GG park with my ‘niece’ [<–she’s a Jack Russell BTW…  girl can run], babysat my nephew [can you say slumber party??], cuddled with my pup [DUH], watched some Halloween movies to get into the spirit,  and of course… snapped a few hundred pics.

Some weekend highlights via black & white photos… of course!!

Sick Day Essentials.

Well, I seem to be kicking of 2013 in the same fashion that I begin most years… sick! I don’t know what it is, but I think once the stress of the holiday season is finally over and I give my body a second to relax it hits me like a ton of bricks. Don’t get me wrong… Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year, but whether good or bad, stress is stress and the body does what the body wants. Luckily I have a few days to rest and recoup before I get back to the real world… here are a few of my sick day essentials

1) Hot lemon+honey water… a must!

2) iPad to stay in touch with the world around you & keep your brain active – crosswords//scrabble//social media

3) A good book!! Currently reading Earnest Holmes’ The Science of Mind and it is really resonating with me!! Great motivation for a positive new year!

4) TV remote… Duh!!
