These are a few of my favourite things

Hello there! I have been pondering what I should do for a post. I thought and thought and figured well why not show you my -somewhat- daily life and a few of my favourite (and not so favourite) things. I'll keep this short and sweet, so go enjoy and have a wonderful weekend! :)

Homework, one of my least favourite things. Although sometimes I like how it gets my mind off of things.

Pearls! Fake or real I find them quite classy and they also make nice room decor!

Vintage frames! This gorgeous piece hangs above my bed and I am in LOVE with it!

Guitars! Although I can't play, I love the music they can make. I always have since I was about eight! :)

Longboarding! Even though it's much too brisk to go longboarding now I still love the rush of fleeing down a hill on this baby.

Toms. That is all.

This camera is practically my first love, I saw it at a secondhand shop for only five dollars, and I was like, I need that!

This picture! I went for a photo sesh with my parents and I thought this would make a cute picture. :)

Flowers, in the fall.

And more flowers.

The evening sun! Although my face looks slightly silly in this I still love it!

The leaves colours are just gorgeous!

Oh, and more flowers.

Jewelry, I usually sport this gorgeous ring or a chunky bracelet. 

Much love,
Madi :)

Hot Chocolate and Good Music are in the Air.

So, lately I have been craving hot chocolate and so I made some. Not too exciting but then it hit me, well I think I will do a post on how to make the worlds BEST hot chocolate, or at least I think so. Ever go to a cute cafe or even Starbucks and order the hot chocolate. You embrace the taste on your taste-buds like you've tasted nothing better. Then you come to the reality that you would rather not pay five dollars for a cup of cocoa when you're in the mood. You have come to the right place for cheap yet delicious and not to mention quick hot chocolate, Enjoy!

You will need: 

-Hot cocoa mix; about 3-4 tablespoons

-Water; Preferably of the boiled type

-Milk; It really depends on how creamy and how warm/cold you want it, if just right i'd say about five tablespoons

-*OPTIONAL*; a dash of cinnamon, icing sugar or a candy cane will make this taste splendid!

1. Boil the water.

2. Add about 3-4 of these.

3.Add water.

4.I don't really measure how much (as you can see) but this is where you add the milk.

 5. Mix together!

6. Now heres the optional step, where you can add the extra toppings. Or you just wait about 5 minutes for it to cool and then you can enjoy it :)

So, I also promised music, did I not? Well, heres three songs I have been listening to non-stop
-Sara Bareilles "Gonna Get Over You" 
-Carly Rae Jepsen "Call Me Maybe"
-Coldplay "Fix You"

So go, enjoy some hot cocoa and listen to some music, sit back and relax and have a terrific tuesday :)
Have any more hot cocoa ideas? Or hot fall drinks? Tell me! :)
Much love,

New Blog, Moving Forward and Enjoying Lifes Little Wonders.

Hey There! Welcome to my new blog, Inspired. I decided to make a blog that I can not only keep updated on but pour my heart into every last word that goes into my posts. I want this blog not only to be special for me, but for you as well. I want this blog to not be a blog, but a place to go when you want to just read and get well, inspired. I know it will take a lot because there are so many wonderful, creative blogs out there. I realized that my old blog wasn't me, well it was just not the real, deep, passionate me. I want to come back to my blog when I have my own kids and smile at my fond memories of walking down to the castle (yes, I live by a castle) or basking under the hot summer sun. A blog to me is like a photo album and a journal where you can share your feelings, thoughts and memories through simple words or grasping pictures. So now you know why I made this blog. Now onto the second part of this post, moving forward. Yes, this is one of life's hardest struggles but I know its something we all have to do. I don't mean you shouldn't reminisce and keep memories, more like if something or rather someone is hurting you and you want them in your life you have to let go and move on. You should never make the effort for people if they don't make the effort for you. It's as simple as that. So don't hold back move forward! This persons part in your story is over and you need to let them go. Finally, my last part enjoying life's little wonders. I personally think that life is so much more beautiful if you enjoy the little things and expect less. I have to admit I'm not always the most grateful or least expecting person, but when I expect less and look on the bright side of things everything is just, great. I believe that if you take life day by day then you will definitely appreciate life in itself. Sorry about the long post, but I just love to express my feelings. A lot. 

Have anything to say? Comment below. Happy Monday!
Much love, 
Madi :)
