Man oh man, has it really been THIS long since I last updated? I guess I can't really feel THAT guilty because I've been out there living. But still. Three months is a long time, even for me. However, in the time since we've last spoke, I have had a... Continue reading

This past weekend, some friends and I took a trip to one of my very favorite spots, Joshua Tree. Some of you may remember Joshua Tree from my last visit, back in September. (That was actually my first time there!) I loved it so much then that I knew I'd... Continue reading

A dear friend of mine is getting married in Santorini, Greece this June! Come see the Greek-themed wedding shower we threw for her over the weekend. Continue reading

I think it's no secret that I've been MIA over the past few months. However, I will tell you that it's not been without reason. These past few months have been really fun, stressful, and adventurous-- but ultimately, I've been really happy with where things are going. I'll rewind and... Continue reading

To say that I've been on a nude kick recently might be a bit of an understatement. I'm not joking when I say that black, white, and tan are literally ALL I have been wearing lately. Haha. But it's for a good reason. Simplicity is currently my favorite accessory. High... Continue reading

This past Veteran's Day, my mom got married. Anyone who knows me knows that this is kind of a big deal. Even though my mom has been with her partner, Rob, for the past 13 years, they've never been married. And now he's "officially" part of the family! Originally, they... Continue reading

In Mexico, Día de los Muertos is a day (or set of two days, actually) where loved ones come together to visit, pray for, and celebrate those they have lost over the years. In my neck of the woods, a little trickle over from Mexican culture is inevitable. So yesterday,... Continue reading

In my last post, I mentioned there was a secret hidden in one of the pictures I posted. Well... Surprise! This is Charlie. She's a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport, and she's my new baby. I've got a long-ish history with Jeeps, so the decision wasn't that hard to make.... Continue reading

So... last week a friend and I took a trip out to Joshua Tree. I'll be honest: growing up, I was terrified of the desert. Okay, not terrified-- but I really didn't enjoy it that much. Cacti, snakes, heat, & dirt just weren't my cup of tea. In my mind,... Continue reading

So today's DIY is a bit of a new concept for The Poppygirl Diaries... a recipe! Okay, by no means am I a cooking aficionado, but I do enjoy my occasional spare time in the kitchen. Given that this is a DIY blog, I figured we could definitely incorporate a... Continue reading

Last week, I got a bit of good news... I graduated! Okay, so maybe that's not that big of news. I'm not a huge fan of getting too personal on the internet, but I think this post deserves a little explaining. Let's just say this: In many ways, Barcelona was... Continue reading

Today I come to you with a super cute party favor DIY: Cascarones! Cascarones (or confetti eggs here in the english speaking world) are a little hard to trace. It's suspected they were first of Italian, then Spanish, and then Mexican origin. But growing up here in border town U.S.A.,... Continue reading

So some of you may not know, but today is my 22nd birthday. (: Let me start off by saying I love birthdays. (I am a Leo after all... hehe.) And though it's a weird concept when you really think about it (celebrating the amount of time you've been on... Continue reading

It's been a while, but I'm finally home. (: Being back has been great. I'm working hard at getting myself re-established here in San Diego-- and though it's been a bumpy road, it's all worked out so far. For starters: I got a new room! After coming home I felt... Continue reading

June is finally here, and I am so ready for it. These past few weeks have been jam-packed with traveling, adventuring, paper-writing-- you name it. But it really freaks me out to finally say it: I'm going home in less than a month! These past 10 months have brought me... Continue reading

Hi all! Hope everyone is doing well. (: As you can probably tell from the title of this post, all went well with Sister #1's arrival, and we made it to Nice safely. I decided I'd let Sister #1 sleep in a little longer this morning so I could clean... Continue reading

So, Easter is kind of late this year. Okay, not kind of. It's REALLY late this year. I'm used to Easter being somewhere at the end of March. But for some reason, this year, it's way later than usual. Which I guess is okay. (: It's a new experience. Here... Continue reading

Hi Elsie (& Gang), I just wanted to let you know how much I've really come to love and appreciate your blog over the years. I've been reading for almost four years now (yikes, how time flies!), and for some reason I've just never gotten around to commenting. (I suppose I'm just not much of the commenting type, haha). But overall, I just want to congratulate you on your progress and let you know how inspiring you are. If it wasn't for your blog, I really don't know if I would have started mine. It's obvious that you have a real amount of talent, and I can tell that you absolutely love what you do. Every time I read something that you write, I always say to myself "Ah, that's me! This girl is exactly like me." It's kind of a magical feeling. I've always seen your blog as an inspiration and I hope that one day I can find myself in a place like yours. xo, Megan

In my last post, I shared a little about the inspiration struggle I had been facing as of recently. Because all of my DIY posts are kind of put on hold until I get back to California this July, I had to figure something out. After a few days of... Continue reading

Hi everyone ♥ I REALLY don't want to look at the date of my last post because it's going to make me cringe. ;( Between school, work, and travel, I've just been pushing blogging off and off, and I really don't like that it's been going down this road. It's... Continue reading

My, my, my, have I been a bad blogger as of late! Haha. Well first and foremost, I send you my apologies, but mainly I'd like to start off this post with wishing you all a happy New Year! I can't believe we're already coming into the beginnings of February.... Continue reading

For starters, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you all had wonderful holidays, wherever in the world you may have been. It's hard to believe that Christmas has already come and gone. I genuinely feel like I just blinked! Haha. As I've mentioned before, this year marks... Continue reading

I feel like the biggest goob for taking so long to get these photos up. Before I started blogging, I never thought that picture siphoning, editing, and narrowing-down could be such a task. (I can safely say that I have a new appreciation for photographers, haha.) But anyway, as some... Continue reading

So, a few days ago, I was contacted by the folks at an up-and-coming optical company, Warby Parker, to see if I'd be interested in helping them promote their newest line, the Leith Clark Collection. I wasn't quite sure what to say. I was both honored and tickled because I've... Continue reading

Over the weekend, my sweet baby blog turned one. I can't believe it! I mean, I can, and I do, but it's still a weird thought for me. One year of blogging. Hip, hip, hooray! Things like this always get me thinking of where I was a year ago. I'm... Continue reading
