*This is something new I’m doing to remember throughout the year things I wish for or would like to either try, make, see or whatever. It’s a “visual blog” so to speak. It’s mostly just for me to enjoy, but if you follow along, you’ll get a better sense of who I am. What I love. What I really like. You know those “visual boards” people make to help them achieve their dreams and goals? This is more or less that, but on my blog so I can remind myself things I want or wish for. Things that make me happy! Beginning today, I have to seriously start looking for a home and I have to by this coming December to find a house. Yikes! A girl can dream, no? Things I want for my garden, house etc. It will keep my spirits up and it’s just a fun thing to do. I’ll be getting most of my things from Pinterest, but I also will credit where I get them from too from their original source. My JavaGirl Journals will continue as well beginning this Saturday, as well as my Photo Challenge pictures.
Male Fashion: When it comes to male fashion, I like this earthy, casual and relaxed look. Not exactly a going out to dinner or first date look, but more of a “let’s go to a festival or walk around the city” look. At least from a point of view from a girl. I could be wrong. Guys always have their own opinions. Lol!
Plants: I inherited about 20 plants from my mom, so this gives me an idea of what I can do with them once I get a house. This style is unique, little of that “maybe I’m in Costa Rica or Rio” feel to it. I’m always looking for something different, yet young and fresh to try. I’d love to have a section of the patio or room where the plants are organized so your eyes go all over the place instead of just one line of plants– which is boring. I used to be a plant killer (not intentionally), but so far, my new plants are flourishing and still alive. Score!
My yard: Growing up in Brazil, arches are very common in a typical Brazilian home. I would love to have something of an arch if I ever do buy a home (and not a condo). It would bring a bit of Brazil up here and I would just be happy as a clam. The outside furniture compliments the mood and as does the colors of the pillows. I’d probably be the only person on the block who would have an arch, but who cares! Add a bit of Bossa Nova of Roberto Carlos singing and we’re good to go. How much would it cost to have one built like this? Anyone? I’ll build it myself if I can’t afford it, hehe.
Refreshments: I’m always looking to drink fun, festive and non-alcoholic drinks. I do love having Pepsi once in a while, but something like this cute drink, how can I not try this one out? I’ll hopefully try this one out this weekend. Wait. Does that say Cadbury Chocolates on the side of that box? I love Cadbury!! This drink is made up of cranberry and apple juice with a nice splash of ginger ale. I assume you make it the way you like. The original site did not have this on there anymore.
Wedding: I almost didn’t post this one because I really didn’t anyone else to steal this lovely “English Garden” theme wedding bouquet, but I decided to play nice. People like it over on my Pinterest site so why not on here on WordPress? I’ve always loved the whimsical gardens from England ever since I was in 6th grade or maybe I just watched “The Secret Garden” too many times. I dreamed that if I ever get married, I’d want a bouquet that looked like it was picked from an English garden. So pretty…
Photography: I love this picture! In fact, I loved it so much I actually bought it last year and it’s hanging in my living room. Thanks Adam! Adam is a fantastic photographer. Check out his website! Not only that, he’s also a WordPress subscriber of mine.
