Instamissimo

Speaking of Instagram, have you heard of Asia Pietrzyk‘s newest project, Instamissimo

Inspired by Instagram, Asia turns photos from her favorite ‘grammers into illustrated versions. What a neat idea! I love seeing Instagrams taking a new life in the form of illustrations! I also love how Asia uses photos from lesser-known Instagrammers as well so I can find new people to follow.

March on Instagram

Is it just me or did the month of March go by really fast? Like extremely scary fast? I don’t know how it’s spring already, but I’m excited. It’s staying light outside later now which I love and I’m in my last quarter at SCAD before summer break! Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at life outside of the blog.

Mary’s shop not only consists of vintage items, but antique and modern as well.  Some of her antique items would make wonderful wall hangings (far too lovely to wear!). Her house & home section is pretty rad too (who wouldn’t want this vintage floral mug?!). Annnd she has one of the loveliest Instagrams known to mankind. Sufficient to say, I love this lady.

DIY Food: Chai Chia Pops

Making a healthy, filling, and delicious dessert doesn’t have to mean spending hours in the kitchen. These creamy, heavenly-spiced popsicles are a cinch to create and only require a bit of patience in the freezer before you indulge.

The coconut milk in these pops provide a helping of good-for-you fats while the chia seeds lend omega-3 fatty acids and fiber to keep you satiated long after you’ve had your dessert. I’m a huge fan of aromatic herbs and spices, like this chai spice mixture. It gives a pop of flavor without extra calories and actually helps to boost your immune system and other body functions. Amazing Mother Nature!

Bohemian Roots

bohemian roots - drifter and the gypsy blog

When I was in the 6th grade, I went through a painfully bohemian phase of dressing. I use the word ‘painfully’ because looking back at pictures of myself just makes me cringe (does ANYONE like the way they looked in 6th grade?). I wore long skirts, braided my hair to the side and purposely slouched because I thought it made me look cool.

Thankfully, I’ve since then refined my look! When Free People sent me this simple white tee shirt to style, I revisited my bohemian roots.

I love plain white tee shirts because you can dress them up however you want. In this particular look, I paired the tee with a handmade skirt my mother found in Sonoma last summer. But I was also thinking it would look awesome with a pair of high-waisted vintage jeans.

The beauty of plain white tees is their chameleon-like quality. Which is why I love Free People‘s newest trend celebrating the ever-classic ‘Little White Tee’.

Office Lady

In another life, I imagine myself as a character from Mad Men, all dressed up for the office, so chic and well-organized. In reality, I can’t stand offices and cubicles and being stuck inside all day. But I DO love Té Chichi‘s Spring 2014 collection. It’s ’60s mod with the perfect girly flare.
