TwentySeven Things: September 2014


It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these but I got the urge to reflect over the past month on Saturday. So here we go – my TwentySeven Things for September.

  1. This month was my Letter To Self month. I read a letter from 22-year-old Sarah to 23-year-old Sarah and it was kind of awesome. It’s really lovely to see how much you can grow in just 12 months. So much of my mindset and the way I approach things has changed – but in a good way. I finished my 2015 Letter To Self and can’t wait to read it next year.
  2. I went to the Made In America festival in Downtown LA over Labor Day Weekend and had the time of my life. I wore kimonos and flower crowns and flash tattoos and danced until my feet went numb. Oh and I got to be in the mosh pit to see John Mayer. Yes I was in a mosh pit for John Mayer. (Granted most people were staked out for Kanye but I was living for Mayer.)
  3. I became re-obsessed with Florence and The Machine because of this cover. Also I painted a Florence inspired canvas which you can see at the bottom of this post.
  4. Other artist’s I’ve been obsessed with this month include: Banks, Jessie Ware, Ryn Weaver, Kiesza, Echosmith, Betty Who and Walk The Moon.
  5. I went to the One Direction concert at the Rose Bowl. It was amazing and awesome and I danced and screamed a lot and I regret absolutely nothing.
  6. Fall TV is finally back! Mindy and New Girl and Nashville and Scandal and Grey’s and all of the other new shows mean I have something to come home to and express all the emotions about.
  7. I watched Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday about Paulo Coelho who spoke about the worldwide success of The Alchemist on its 25th anniversary. I was so inspired that I went out and bought my 5th copy of the book. Because I mean who isn’t a sucker for an anniversary edition?
  8. I started going to yoga again. Hiiiiii Core Power, I missed you lots lots lots.
  9. I went shopping this past weekend and bought a lot of Autumn inspired things like sweaters and jeans and kimonos made of thicker fabric. Because I gotta have my kimonos.
  10. Speaking of a fall wardrobe, all of my boots are back in rotation. Boots are back, back again. Boots are back, tell a friend.
  11. I’ve read probably 15 books in the past 4 weeks and that is not an exaggeration.
  12. I have made the conscious decision to be more positive in every aspect of my life because I realized (finally) that good things do not come to negative people. Negative attracts negative, positive attracts positive. Science amiright? (Probably not science but you get it.)
  13. I finally bought my Birkenstocks. I am in love and am never wearing another pair of shoes again.
  14. Unless they are these boots that I also just bought, because I love them too.
  15. With summer finally over, I’ve finally been able to spend a few weekends at home doing nothing and it has been awesome.
  16. My little herb garden is surprisingly still alive. It’s been two months. This is a new record for me sooooo claps for Sarah
  17. I finished both 30 Rock and Parks and Rec this past month. And by “finished” I mean re-watched both for the second and third time respectively.
  18. The Giants made the playoffs! #OrangeOctober begins this week.
  19. Currently trying to find a U-Pick apple orchard in Southern California because all I want to do this fall is pick apples.
  20. I also have been inspired by Pinterest to try and bake some things this fall like banana bread and muffins. Lots of muffins.
  21. My current sweet tooth obsession is salted caramel ice cream. I don’t even care which brand, as long as it’s salted caramel I will be purchasing it.
  22. Can I just say it has taken me a few weeks, but I am now fully onboard with the 1989 era of Taylor Swift. I did need some time (as I do every time she releases new music and it doesn’t sound like Fearless because duh Fearless era is the best era) but I am now fully on board and jam so hard to Shake It Off. Haters gonna hate hate hate hate hate.
  23. Quick Etsy update: dream catchers and headbands have been added to my shop!
  24. I still have purple hair. Kind of. It’s more lavender now (which I am so into) and it is slowly morphing itself into an ombre. Hair game strong.
  25. Re-watched First Wives Club. Inspired yet again to get a white power suit and kick ass.
  26. Countdown is now at 11 days until I get to see Tom Petty live. That means 11 days until I check “See American Girl played live” off my bucket list.
  27. My TwentySeventh thing for this list goes out to this little blog who turns two years old on the 8th. I must plan a little celebration in honor.

Some of my favorite snaps from the past month.
