Friday Link Love

My enthusiasm for the end of the week is a little underwhelming today. While I am very pleased that the work week is at its end, all I really feel like doing right now is flopping down on my couch and staring at the ceiling for a while. Actually, my couch wouldn’t work in this scenario. If I were to flop onto my own couch, I would be swarmed immediately by the fluffy horde because it is apparently a house rule. Is mommy sitting or laying? She must have no fewer than three cats vying to assist her. While I love my furbabies dearly, they have been going above and beyond to keep my blood pressure elevated. Breaking things, getting into things, trying to escape, crying at the door for half the night….you get the idea. All of this, I’m sure, will be remedied with a good night’s rest and some uninterrupted reading time. Maybe. Hopefully.

After this very long week, I am very much in need of this list of ways to improve your mood.

And to soothe your soul, these adorable cheetah cubs doing their best to sound ferocious.

A modern take on the iconic Carrie Bradshaw style.

Spirited Away is one of my favorite Miyazaki films and I think it is incredibly cool that you can walk through and “pig” out in the town that inspired the movie.

Speaking of pigging out, waffles anyone?

Let’s face it, in a world of Pinterest Perfect and Insta-Ready, it leave the average person feeling a little down about their home decor. Here are 10 decorating tips from someone who makes a living creating those gorgeous snap shots we all aspire to.

I like this modern take on floral arrangements; I think it could be a lot of fun the next time you host brunch.

About Julie

My name is Julieanna Bucior, but I go by Julie (unless I'm in trouble). I'm twenty nine. 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 adults body. I love reading, hanging out with my crazy cats and being silly. I'm pretty much the girl next door, with a twist.
