Happy Mid-September everyone!
It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by. Even though I’m about to embark on my second year out of school, there’s a part of me that still wants to follow suit in that pattern. I started my first job at the start of fall one year ago and now one year later, I’m doing the same thing again. There was something about the new school year that I loved and it wasn’t just that I had a new set of classes, a new wardrobe, or that I was one step closer to starting THIS current life, but it was the idea of starting the year with a fresh slate – wiping everything clean, getting rid of the old and progressing towards the new. That might be one of the reasons why September is considered more of my new year than January. I always like to start Mondays with reflective posts (besides Wedding Mondays!) so here’s A Collection for you :)
I found myself at my favorite book store in Capitol Hill last night and finally got a glimpse of the infamous September Issue by Vogue. Every year, I know that the issue is going to be massive, but I still find myself very curious and in need of holding it in my arms just to see how much bigger it is against my body. It’s amusing to me and as I’m sure – amusing to those around me.
By now, we know that Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover and looking stunning, but did you also know that the cover is making the rounds on Instagram under the hashtag #voguestagram?! Animals love fashion too, alright?

Meet Sunny Obama! What a lovely new addition to the family.
Sunny was born in Michigan in June 2012, and arrived at the White House today. Just like Bo, she’s a Portuguese Water Dog, which works great for the Obamas because of allergies in their family.
Oh my goodness, I want her. She seems so precious!
I have said from the beginning (more like after President Obama got re-elected for his second term) that his PR team has been on point. Not only do they convey messages that are heartwarming and memorable, but they also like to prove that they are with the times and can throw out modern references every now and then. Today, Obama’s team threw out what will go down in history as one of the best tweets ever by tweeting this “Mean Girls” reference.
This tweet embodies three things that we love – Mean Girls, dogs, and the inner workings of the Oval Office.
I love seeing the difference in A Collection posts between seasons. With summer, there is so much light in these photos, the idea that we have the capacity to do anything, and some weight lifted off our shoulders. I have so much hope for the rest of 2013 and my hope is that it will be better! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that these photos can do their best to inspire beauty and life into you!
Is everything in San Francisco better? It sure seems like it with the amount of posts we’ve been doing on the city lately. One thing is for sure – everything in San Francisco is much more expensive than say…anywhere else. Especially Seattle. I just came across a post this morning outlining some of the most extravagant amenities that their hotels are offering and was surprised to say the least especially because I forgot to take advantage of one amenity when I was at Hotel Monaco last month. Not only is the hotel dog-friendly, but they also offer a program called “Guppy Love” in which they allow their guests to take care of a complimentary goldfish during their stay. The hotel staff is trained to feed and care for the fish so you don’t have to take the role of its owner yourself, but you can have some company if you’d like. If only I had known this just a few weeks ago…

The fact that ice cream is kind of a universal treat made me ecstatic to find that there was a brand for little doggies as well. The flavors aren’t anything that I would want to try myself – chicken cheddar, beef brisket, pulled pork, or gouda burger, but I’m sure the dogs would love it!
Arrfscarf also makes a line of healthy and delicious treats as well.
I couldn’t help myself and made a purchase for one of my favorite little puppies and hopefully she’ll be a fan.
Without even noticing, every “A Collection” post has some sort of a theme. I always enjoy going back and looking at the different sets asking myself what the common theme was. What was I feeling that day? Why did I select this photo, that photo, and this series of photos? I started writing this about a fourth into completing this post and I noticed that all of the photographs are pretty simplistic, but also muted. There are times when I won’t remember why there is a theme, but I think this completely embodies how I’m feeling right now. Somewhat muted, but it’s a refreshing time right now because there is so much that is unknown. Also – Seattle has the hottest weather in all of the country right now, which is incredible and NEVER happens. Funny, because you would think that these photos would be much brighter to resemble that, but they are not. Surprise!
I know this looks a little bit ridiculous, but think of how rad this would be framed in your own home. It’s such a stand out piece on its own – I love it so much. Designed by Yago Partal, his new series Zoo Portraits highlights some of your favorite animals wearing trendy human clothes. It’s pretty clever and it kind of makes you think…what if, right? Maybe that’s just me though. Check out the entire series here courtesy of Flavorwire.
