My Sanctuary


AH! I've been so busy lately that I haven't made a single post in over a week & I apologize. My boyfriend and I broke up and I've been in constant search of a new job which is very discouraging due to our economy, no one, and I mean NO ONE seems to be hiring. I should just be grateful that I have a job at all but I enjoy keeping myself constantly busy and I need the extra cash right now so I thought I could juggle two. We'll see what happens..


In the meantime I've been imagining in my head what my dream home would look like if I ever struck gold! One of my biggest goals in life is to buy a beautiful vintage victorian-like house and completely rennovate it from the ground up to my liking. The pictures below are just a few out of many more that I have saved for inspiration when the time finally comes to transform my dreams into reality..





What do you think?!

Oh wow these are amazing. I love Victorian style and I love how a modern twist can be put into them.

I finished the fourth of the Twilight Saga a few days ago. And I really enjoyed it. For the most part I think the movie did the book justice in the scenery I think, however I viewed Bella differently.

I know, the first time I cut my hair short I had a mini break down, but after a while I grew to enjoy it. So when and if I part with my hair it'll be a bit more gradual than cutting it all off at once. I'll probably donate 10 inches to locks for love first.
