Loves :: Sick Wishes

And I don't mean 'sick' as in 'cool' even though a lot of the things in this post are pretty cool. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll already know that I've had strep throat this past week (yuck). It cheered me up a bit to pull out some cute cards that my good friend Celeste has made me over the years. (I've been sick a lot...)

There we are at her recent Olympics-themed party. I don't know if you can tell from the quality of these photos (IFB would not approve) but I'm wearing a swimsuit top, and goggles on my head. I considered bringing a bong and calling myself Michael Phelps, but thought that'd be too easy. Plus, I don't think he normally wears a two-piece.

Other things that got me through this period of pain? Cold Slurpees, frozen yogurt, hot tea, Vitamin Water, Naked juices, soup with crackers, antibiotics, and Nyquil. All of these things helped my throat feel better, and it was kinda fun, but I miss 'real' food. I'm craving salads, pasta, sushi, tacos, coffee... I really miss coffee. I also missed working (weird, I know) so I only called out two days. Before being hit with cabin fever, though, I did a little on-line window-shopping. I obviously can't have all of this, so what should I choose?

By the time I get Instagram, everyone else will have flying cars. I finally want to jump on the Instax bandwagon. I've never owned an instant film camera -- can you believe it? This one is so cute!

Speaking of cameras, I'm still saving for a new profesh one. What you see here is the Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging. Yes, I had to copy and paste all of that. Anyway, the Canon Rebel seems to be the popular choice for bloggers. Yay or nay? I feel like this is such a huge decision.

These blank CDs are so cool. I want hundreds of them. And yes, I still burn CDs. You shouldn't be surprised at this point.

Dexter is the only TV show I watch religiously, or at all. This is a must-have. I already own the other seasons if anyone wants to borrow. :)

I used a Moleskine planner last year. I want to stock up on journals. I don't know why they're so pleasing to write in. Good branding?

I want all of these tee shirts inspired by The Weeknd.

I love art that features girls with glasses. I've been wearing them since the fourth grade, so I feel like I can relate. :) I don't know what's more narcissistic than that...

...except for maybe putting my first initial up on my wall.

I also want to decorate with all of these girls.

I love cute hair stuff.

And these two states!

I want this soap made from beer brewed in Michigan. :)

I'll leave you with this cute and 'punny' print. ♥


  1. I hope you feel better! As for all the cute cameras, I'm looking into the Canon camera above as well, and it's apparently really popular with bloggers. I've only heard wonderful things about it :). I also love instant film cameras, I have the one you showed above and it's so much fun!

    Feel better lovely!

  2. Feel better! I had steep throat in the beginning of the summer it was DEATH. but once it went away I felt better. Love your friends get well soon notes! Mega cute. Also want that hello kitty cup now!

    With Love!

  3. I'm also looking to get a camera and was looking at the Rebel! If you get it, please tell me how it is. I feel like it's the biggest decision because they're all SO expensive.

  4. Well poo, get well soon! (Strep does suck!)
    Sort of love the instant cam...

  5. Feel better soon! My husband started with a Rebel T2i. He loved it! Good starter DSLr I think.

  6. Sorry you are poorly! I prescribe you soup, bed and laptop :)

  7. I am sorry you haven't been well!
    When I was deciding on which camera, I decided to take it up a notch. Kristy made the point that the Rebel is a camera you can still really grow out of (and with the amount of photos you take!!!!!!), she suggested I hold off and go with the 60D. I took her advice and I LOVE my camera. Yes, it costs more and it may take longer to get the finances in order, but it has been really worth it!

  8. I hate having strep throat! Hope you are feeling better! Naked Juices are pretty awesome...I love green machine! EmergenC is also awesome when you are sick.

    My first DSLR was a Rebel Xsi. Great camera and I still occasionally use it if I don't feel like getting out my 5D or my 7. I would definitely recommend a Rebel!

    I LOVE those CDs! I think I am actually going to go order some today...

    So excited for Dexter to return! I don't have time for a lot of TV but I make time for Dexter! Have you read the books? They are fantastic!

    I love writing in journals. There is something so relaxing about it.

  9. My friend has the polaroid camera! I really like it because it's not super bulky and it looks cute. I really love that beer soap too! I would love to try that stuff...I've been using this beer shampoo that I got from Skin Food, and I love the smell of it!

  10. Bleh. I'm so sorry you've been sick. I was just telling my brother last night that the only thing good about it is that you can watch TV and movies all day and not feel guilty.

    I LOVE those chubby instant film cameras. I used to love my Gramma's polaroid!

  11. Aw I hope you're feeling better now lady. Strep throat is horrible :(

    I have a Canon Rebel EOS 350d, it's getting a bit old & battered now but I love it. I don't know how to use it as well as I would like but I feel like it helps me take much better photos for sure. x
