Friday Link Love

It has been a roller coaster of a week. Sure, there have been plenty of things going on at work and at home, but emotionally I’ve been all over the place, and I can’t seem to put my finger on why. Also, I don’t seem to be having much luck at controlling it, so I’ve just been giving everyone a heads up when it seems to be heading for a downward swing. Andy and I spent most of yesterday evening laughing helplessly over how everything, and I do mean everything, was disproportionately annoying me. Kitty snuggles and some delicious Cuban food went a long way towards improving my mood. This weekend I am looking forward to spending time with a couple of my friends and cleaning like a mad woman before my in-laws arrive next week. I’d like to get as much done as I can since I don’t think I am going to have a ton of time once the work week starts. Here are some links to help you kick off your weekend.

Valentine’s Day is past, but I am still loving this heart inspired DIY.

This woman makes jewelry from old family letters. So cool.

I very much want to try my hand at making this Chocolate Raspberry Zebra Cake.

While I am all for the power of a positive mindset, there is some to be said for the Healing Power of Complaining.

Living in a castle surround by flowers and arts supplies? This is a real life fairy tale.

Speaking of fairy tales, I would be over the moon to get the chance to take a trip like this. My princess dresses would be packed before they even finished telling me about the offer.

This shirt is a frank reference to a life long condition of mine. Too much for casual Friday?

As someone who is still fairly new to wearing a full face of makeup on the daily, I really enjoyed this tutorial on incorporating a pop of color in a way that is still refined.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm thirty one. I am a bookkeeper by day, rogue fashion designer/crafter/amateur baker by night. I spend most of my time feeling like a kindergartner trapped inside an adult's body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
