The struggle to blog and a new bi-monthly feature

I think the title of this blog post just gave away the punch line. I mean, could I be any more obvious? Where is my creativity?!

Gone. Apparently. At least for today! :)

Blogging is hard. I mean I know I talk like a Puerto Rican (too fast and too much!) but sometimes I have the hardest time coming up with something interesting to write about. Sometimes I feel like my everyday life is too boring! What is there to talk about? This morning I woke up. That was awesome. Oooh I bought a new toothbrush. It's pink. 

*yawn* Sorry, but yeah i just put MYSELF to sleep!

THANKFULLY, I stumbled across some really awesome things this weekend, and I figured I could share them with my loyal readers - all one of you! (Thanks Mom!) hehe kidding!

1. www.paperieboutique.com

First on the list is Paperie Boutique!  I'm a huge believer in the fact that your last impression is as important as the first. This is an AWESOME site for photographers. They feature tons of examples of really adorable brands and how they package their final products! Not only that but they give you plenty of reliable sources for the items you'll need. You've probably seen my FAQ post here about my final packaging, but this site has me rethinking it and getting really in touch with the "Arts & Crafts Ariana". Check it out yourself, whether you're a photographer or not, you'll definitely get an idea or two!

2. www.stylemepretty.com

This blog has been out there for a loooOOoong time, but I didn't really start reading blogs until I started this business, and I certainly didn't start reading wedding blogs like this until about last month. But now that I do, I've quickly determined that this one is my favorite. The styles that they feature, the photographers they publish and the details they show off - gorgeous. It's a constant flow of ideas and inspiration and whether you're planning a wedding, a photographer, or just a girl, period, this is THE website for some of the top wedding trends and best photographers in the business. 

3. "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri

This song has been out for a while but I just heard it on the radio last week and am addicted. Her voice is so raw and beautiful and the lyrics are so hauntingly dead on. I love this and hope to listen to a whole lot more of her music in the near future. Here's the video, in case you haven't seen or heard it.

And that's it. My favorites from this past weekend! I wonder if I could make this a regular feature... i could call it "These are a few of my favorite things" or "Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes." Maybe those are too long? *gasp* - I've got it!

"Girls In White Dresses: My Favorite Things"

You know, because of the part in the song, "Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes..." See? See?! It's perfect! I think I'll make it a weekly or bi-weekly feature. Not sure just yet, (I only JUST came up with it) but I'll have to get cracking on some good movies or books so I can post them here! 

Hope some of you like the links I shared today! Feel free to tell me some of YOUR favorite things!
