Taking Notes 1.7

This week in Taking Notes: the little girl capturing hearts everywhere with her sweet personality and generous gift to others. Plus, some weekly inspiration, my Oscar-winner crush, and how to get spruced up for spring.

Noted in Ideas for the Home

It’s no secret that many people around the country are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring. Since it’s been such a long, cold winter, I loved reading this article about ways to refresh your home for the new season. These colorful tips are meant for small spaces, but I think they could be applied to any room.

Noted in Heartfelt

You may have seen this already, but I just had to share it here. Meet Emily, the adorable 3-year-old who decided to cut her long hair and donate the locks to children with cancer. Her and her “dolly” receive matching hairstyles in this truly heartwarming video.

Noted in Jewelry

No matter where I live in this world, I will always consider New York my home. So, I may have to purchase one of these Sate Pendants from Baublebar. I stumbled across this post on Instagram; the mini-pendants start at $42.

Noted in OMG Jared Leto

When Oscar Sunday arrived, I still hadn’t seen any of the nominated movies. So, before the big show, I relaxed on the couch and ordered Dallas Buyers Club. It was a powerful, heart-wrenching movie with brilliant performances (hello, two best actor wins) – and, after his eloquent speech, I’ve basically been crushing on Jared Leto all week.

(P.S. I may have watched this Thirty Seconds to Mars video a few times. #swoon.)

Noted in Inspiration

Instagram, while huge and at times overwhelming, is an awesome place to find inspiration. I am constantly taking snapshots of posts that I find special and, in turn, sharing them here. I didn’t get to write a Taking Notes article last week, so I have a few extra ‘grams for ya today!
