Linking up for Send Something Good!  I am so excited to participate in this :)

Pretty stationery. Floral print anything. Purple. Octopuses (or octopi?). Dahlias. Lovely photography. Rockabilly. Typography prints. Owls. Rainbows. Everything 50’s. Daisies. Music. Zombies. The sea. All things British. Tattoos. Teal. Etsy. Fun makeup. Vintage! Fabrics. Shiny things. Hearts. Tea. Poppies. Flashlights. All fishes (especially goldfish!). Bright colors. Sugar skulls.



Not so much:
I have a severe phobia of rodents, bunnies, and the dark (hence the love of flashlights!). Clowns. The circus. Zoos. & Aquariums. (I have this thing about animals being in captivity…I know some of those places do good things to help preserve wildlife but its still a thing).

My favorite band is Atreyu.  It’s funny, of all the music I listen to (and it encompasses EVERY genre!), for some reason they just touch my heart.  In one of their CD sleeves, the singer writes this line about what he’s learned in life…”Do what makes your soul happy.”  It’s one of my favorite quotes, and something I try to remember to keep myself in a positive state of mind when life takes its nasty turns.

Current playlist (or, songs I’m listening to constantly this week)
U Can’t Touch This (MC Hammer)
Somebody That I Used to Know (Gotye)
Isn’t it Obvious (Pentimento)
Why Don’t We Just Dance (Josh Turner)
Tom Sawyer (Rush)

Linking up to Something Good with these lovely ladie :)

I love that you explained why you love flashlights. I was so intrigued when I saw that on the favorites part. haha!

@patience - sorry! I changed it. Yeah, I love me some hammertime! lol!

@Kristy Lynn - We so should :) I'm so excited to be a part of this!!

@Gentri - My future father in law laughed so hard at my excitement over getting flashlights from him on Christmas. He was thinking of practicality - I was ECSTATIC!!! haha.

i have a fear of FLASHLIGHTS. i know, sounds weird. but hear me out. i don't like flashlights because my biggest fear is using one in the dark, and shining towards the direction where i only see someones foot or arm or something. too many horror movies in my life obviously!

I am amazed how many of us right brainers love shades of green/ teal. Take a look at the others participating in sendsomething good...it is amazing. I completely find clowns to be creepy as well! What are your thoughts regarding unicorns?

Yuli Conversations said...

hi :) i am also participating in send something good project, I thought this was a good way to get to know more bloggers. Would you like to follow each other? :)


Elyse Alexandria said...

Um, LOVE that song "Somebody That I Used to Know." Seriously, love it!!

Also, hate hate hate the dark. Especially walking alone in the dark. Even in my own house. I just get afraid that some murderer is going to pop out of nowhere and kill me. I don't think that's a really justified thought, but still, it creeps me out.

Love vintage. Floral. Owls. Typography. Etsy. Teal. FABRICS!! {I don't know why, but I collect fabric, haha}. Poppies.

We should be friends :)

P.S. I'm from NY too! Upstate {not the city!} Syracuse.

@Christopher Scott - I love unicorns. Although if I ever saw one in real life, I'd probably get freaked out. Just like I freak out at horses now ever since I watched "The Ring"
