This Monday’s musical choice of mine is ‘Skinny Love’ by Bon Iver. Bon Iver really can never do wrong for my ears and I hope you like this little number! It’s got some nice acoustics and is just a good song to listen. Hope you like!

Jam Of The Week

Time for some awesome tunes! This weeks jam is ‘Sweet Disposition’ by The Temper Trap. Listening to this the other day in the car lightened my spirits and cleared my head after a stressful week so I wanted to share it with you all! It’s just a nice song that made me smile and look at the sun outside in true appreciation, I ended up driving the rest of my route with my arm out the window feeling a happy… I mean Sweet Disposition! Enjoy and Happy Monday my friends!

Salty Waters: A Blog Without Limits

I guess I’ll start off with a little intro on who I am and what this blog is about… My name is Isabella, but everyone has called me Izzy since before I can remember.

Me at a drum circle back in the day!

I am 20 years old, a Maryland native, engaged to a beautiful man named Nicholas, a student at Towson University, and constantly striving to be better than I was yesterday.

I am hoping that my blog will be somewhat of a lifestyle blog, meaning I will include fun events and activities! I plan on including anything and everything in this blog! I love fashion, food, and fun!  I also obviously love music and am fascinated by the many different forms of raw human artistry in this world.

However, while this will be a lifestyle blog; life isn’t really all fun parties and happy times is it? I want this blog to not only include the positive things we have in this world, but I also will use this blog to tell personal stories, my opinions on today’s top issues and to speak about many different scenarios that we can all relate to. I would like my posts to be able to relate to people on all levels

and I feel that by making “Salty Waters” a blog without limits, I can truly express all life has to offer, both good and bad (but mostly good of course!).

Sweet Life Festival 2013

This blog will have posts ranging from fun recipes that I enjoy and the fashion statements that I adore, to serious emotional obstacles that I feel need to be expressed!  I will be including everything from today’s top trends to daily life happenings, and I hope any readers out there tell me what they’d like to read and hear about so that I can include more!

I titled my blog “Salty Waters” because to me it is a metaphor of sorts. It refers to the reality and beauty in life.

Sometimes you hear people use “salty” as a term to say something or someone is upset, bitter, or hurt over something. This to me refers to the obstacles and hardships that we all face. However, salt water itself is a natural healing property. Whether from tears or from the sea, salt water has a way of healing our pain.

To me the title “Salty Waters” is a play on how even on life’s worst days; tumblr_lyt8075muq1r3ldjho1_500 there is still a magnificently beautiful world around us with unparalleled wisdom and gloriousness still out there waiting to be discovered.

Now I believe that’s all you need to know about this blog and while I am highly aware that my blog may never be read by anyone except for myself, I do hope that if it is read that it helps open minds and open hearts to all that life has to offer. Live life deliberately my friends!
