Cute Free Things

Yesterday during my lunch I found some cute, free printables.  It all started with wanting a printable calendar for my cubicle and it turned into a lunch-long exploration on Pinterest.  While most of my day is spent in my cubicle writing and researching, dressing up my cubicle for the summer seemed appropriate.  I went to town, but its my happy little corner of the office and I love it!

Here's how I have my cubicle decorated at work!


On my second day I added tons of post cards I had gathered during my study abroad trip to Copenhagen, Denmark.  While I was there I was lucky enough to travel a bit around Europe, and I always made sure to grab post cards!  My Danish Flags are a little obnoxious, but I love them none the less.  They are a great conversation starter, since most people don't know the Danish flag and lets me retell my tale of my 5 months across the pond.

Looking to dress up your cubicle?  I've attached some great links for the free printables I found!


The perfect summer background.

I have a serious crush on this calendar.   
The rich water color, the objects;  I want one for every year!

I have this at my desk as well, because they are both just so cute!  Loving the colors and the aztec design.

I printed off enough of these to last until the end of my internship.
They are absolutely perfect for me to glance in the morning and a great way to start off Mondays. 

The most perfect 'To Do' List

I'm taking French this fall, how cute is this calendar?

This week I was lucky enough to catch up with a close friend who I met in Copenhagen. Originally from Australia, Lucy spent the last semester at Boston College.  She's a law student and has fallen absolutely head over heels in love with DC.  The Capitol and Library of Congress brought her to tears, needless to say she belongs here.  She loves all things political, sassy, and international.  Lucy is absolutely fascinating and I had the most wonderful time catching up with her, reminiscing our semester in Copenhagen, and discussing her thoughts on American culture.  She has traveled virtually everywhere, read up on her travels here.

Happy Thursday ! xo Hil
