Have a Really Fabulous Weekend

Hey there you wonderful readers you, happy Friday!  I’m sorry I’m getting this to you so late but I had work and then I got a little carried away in my excitement of the return of House of Cards!  This weekend I’m going to a stranger’s birthday party, getting ready for one of my closest friends to come and visit and holing up in a cozy coffee shop to continue the full-time job hunt.  What are you up to?  Something wonderful I hope.  Here are some things I found around the web this week that I thought I’d share with you.

If you haven’t already, you’ve got to check out Magnolia Market, run by Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper.  Their home accents are simple and beautiful in every way.

I could not stop laughing at this photographic comparison of Los Angeles and New York City.

Have you heard of Kit and Ace?  Poke around their site and read their About page, I think you’re going to like them.

Here’s a really great blog post with super helpful denim wearing tips from the denim experts of Madewell.  (You should shop around, they just got some super crave worthy pieces in.)

The only election calendar you’ll need all year.  (You should also definitely sign up for he Skimm.)

How simple and pretty is this cocktail?

I’m absolutely dying to try this truffled gnocchi macaroni and cheese.  Three of my favorite things in one warm and satisfying dish.

I’m really loving all of the beauty products Anthropologie is now carrying.

I hope you enjoyed all of these as much as I did.  Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll meet you back here Monday.

 

Have a Lovely Weekend

This weekend is going to be super low key for me.  I’m thinking reading, bubble baths, yoga, Netflix, a museum day and maybe some tinkering with this cookbook.  Also, The Oscars are finally here (February 28th)!  I can’t wait for the who-wore-it best lists and awkward and/or wonderful acceptance speeches.  In the meant time, here’s some stuff I found around the web this past week, happy clicking!

There are few things I enjoy more than Jimmy Fallon’s wheel of Musical impressions.  I just watched this one for the first time and loved it.  Here is another one of my favorites with Kevin Spacey.

Want more Full House?  Netflix has only one thing to say, “You got it dude.”  Fuller House  premieres tonight.

Can we just talk about how beautiful these plates are?

This Oscars quiz  is a toughie.

How killer does this dish sound?

I’m biting the bullet and getting bangs (think Kate Moss and Brigitte Bardot) this coming week.  What do you think?

Trust me, you NEED these jeans in every color in your wardrobe.  They’re like yoga pants, they will make you fall back in love with tucking in your shirt all over again.

Doesn’t this cocktail sound so nice?

Aerie has buy one, get one 50% off on all of their swimwear.  I’m loving this onethis one, ooh and this one too.

Have such a wonderful and relaxing weekend and I’ll meet you back here Monday.  xoxo

Sorry I’ve Been So Slow…

but hopefully this tiny little turtle on a leaf that’s totally pumped for the weekend will help you forgive me.  I promise that there will be a round of posts up to greet you first thing Monday morning but for now, here are some links that I’ve found around the web that I’ve been dying to share with anyone (read: everyone)…

I’ve been trying to become a morning person and this has been insanely helpful.

I watched the live performance last week and totally loved it.  Try this quiz and find out which Pink Lady you would be.

Kate Spade just rolled out their kitchen line and it’s kind of making me want to throw out ever single pot, pan and dish and replace them all with quippy casserole dishes and patterned plates.

I really loved this list (with recipes) of 44 Classic French Meals You Need to Try Before You Die.

Have a spa day at home and give this insanely easy DIY body scrub a try.

fun and thoughtful way to show a friend you’re thinking of them just in time for Galentine’s day.  (Leslie Knope would be all over this site.)

This is, without question, one of the strangest-sort-of-greatest-but-still-super-weird things I’ve ever seen.

Did this make your heart sing too?  I can’t wait.

How good does this cocktail sound?  (Created by my favorite cocktail connoisseur)

Have a lovely weekend my forgiving and wonderful readers.  See you Monday, I promise.
