Friday Link Love

First of all, how gorgeous is that tea glass? Most glamorous way to drink a hot beverage ever! I am hoping to enjoy some lazy tea sipping on this wonderfully long weekend. Among other things, mind you, but I am really hoping that since we have no travel plans and a whole extra day I can convince myself to really relax and invest a serious chunk of time into doing nothing. I still haven’t been able to shake off the deadline fatigue and it’s been a whole month! (Evidently, I am really feeling the exclamation points today.) I really need to work on this sleep thing, guys. I am 31, and I still can’t manage to keep a “reasonable” bed time. In part, it is because there is that little voice in the back of my mind saying “but if you go to sleep, you’ll have to wake up and go to work,” which is accurate, but much easier to accomplish with a extra hour or two of rest, but I digress. Here are some links to help you kick off your weekend ūüôā

I make it to the beach maybe once a year, but I am really trying to find a way to justify the purchase of this mermaid appropriate pool float.

Also, mer-corgi!!!!

Changing my hair color is something I do regularly, but this lady has turned hair dying into an art form.

This DIY daisy choker is super cute, and I am sort of considering make some for certain gift giving occasions later this year.

The last couple of years have seen me having fewer late nights and a lot more brunches; it’s interesting to see that I’m not the only one¬†who feels this way.

As you all know, I like to bake. Sometimes it’s funky, and sometimes I try a more sophisticated recipe. This Coffee Creme Fraiche Cheesecake¬†makes me want to plan a fancy dinner party then eat cake with my pinky up.

One of the items on my checklist to a better self is establishing a routine that allows for maximum productivity; after reading this, I realize that I also need to make sure that this new me has plenty of self care time as well to keep things balanced.

This glitter ice cube¬†tutorial lead to a bit of an argument, albeit a stupid one, between one of my friends and myself. I think it’s awesome; she thinks it gross. What do you guys think?

I’ve always been a fan of lots of color in home decor, but this feature on black¬†has me thinking that maybe I’ve been wrong all these years.

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.
