wisdom

"If there's just one piece of advice i can give you, it's this - when there's something you really want, fight for it, don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems. And when you've lost hope, ask yourself if, ten years from now, you're gonna wish you gave it just one more shot. because the best things in life, they don't come free." -meredith grey, grey's anatomy

Gift Guide 2011: for your girlfriends

I don't know about you lovelies, but I HATE all these gift-guides that most blogs publish with gifts that are super expensive. Who are these people who can afford $100+ gifts for all their friends, because I want in on that! I decided to put together a gift guide for everyone like me, who wants to find something creative and affordable for the people they love in their life. 
So, here is gift guide #1:
Ideas for your closest girlfriends.



"How to be Lovely: The Audrey Hepburn Way of Life," for an Audrey lover (which, let's face it, is pretty much everyone.)

a Moleskin Book Journal, for book lovers

pretty barrettes for someone girly and romantic

adorable animal posts, for an animal enthusiast

an inspirational print, for the contemplative friend

A Globetrotter tee for a world-traveler (these are unisex!)

an amazingly cool star projector for your star-gazing friend
