knitting needles

Are you a fan of knitting? I had a brief encounter with the finger-ific craft in high school. While I was taking Spanish Conversations our teacher instructed the class to buy knitting supplies because working on a knitting project would "help our language skills". I was completely unconvinced that could be possible, but her reasoning proved truthful! We would spend a portion of class each week working on our knitting projects while speaking in Spanish with the rest of our class. Even though it was often just petty chatter, it provided us with much needed practice on how to be more comfortable with the language. We focused our attention on our knitting needles and it enabled us to naturally improve our language and comprehension skills over time. Not only did I feel more confident in Spanish, I learned to enjoy knitting. 

I haven't picked up my knitting needles in a long time...but I think these pictures will get me in the mood again!

tumble, pin, and tweet me!

How invested are you in social media? 
I heard last week that Google+ passed twitter & youtube to be the second most used social media channel (behind facebook, naturally). Read the article HERE if you're in disbelief as I was. 
I am still trying to play around with my google+ account, you can create your own with a gmail email. 
Since we are on the topic of social media, I wanted to share with you some of my pages. In branding Twirling Clare and trying to find the best inspirations for all of you...I spend a fair amount of my time on the vast amount of social media channels. 
I would love for you to follow along with me. And, if you have any questions about how to get your own social media sites started...feel free to ask, I would love to help you!

Below are some of snapshots of what my social media sites look like, you can click on the pictures to access the page...or any of the text that's colored in pink will take you there as well.

stubbs & wootton

I have been crushing on Stubbs & Wootton's velvet smoking slippers for awhile now. The shoes boast clever and whimsical designs and emblems on the front. The company, based out of Palm Beach, has grown in recent years and redefined the classic loafer by making their shoes decorated with charming icons.They are most definitely out of the budget for recent college grad, who is job hunting. Nevertheless, you can always have a wish list, right? 

Or take a peek below the inspiration photos where I have some "lower price range" options.

Cold Weather: Black + White

Brrrr, it's cold outside! Trying to stay warm is so much easier when you have the right pieces for the weather.  Black + White neutrals are the easiest way to build a versatile, classic, and practical wardrobe in the chilly temps. 
Take a peek at some of my favorite winter wear suggestions below:
