Friday Link Love

It’s so close, guys! My feelings about the impending weekend are like when you’ve dropped something underneath the refrigerator or a low cabinet and you stretch out as far as you can with you fingers brushing the edge of the object, and if you could just stretch a scant 1/2 inch more, you’d have it. That is what today feels like to me. The responsible adult part of me is getting things done and the more childish part of me is straining in her seat. Not that I have anything particularly special planned this weekend, but I have had a very tedious responsibility laden week and I want to shake it off and be a little lazy and less structured for a few days. Who knows, maybe even a touch reckless. Okay, probably not reckless, but you know what I mean. Are you as ready for the weekend as I am?

File this experience  under #lifegoals, I think it would make any woman’s day.

Creativity is important, and according to this article, something as simple as doodling can lead to a better and more mentally agile you.

I am all for Inst-worthy treats, but these NYC locations take things to a whole new level.

These quick and easy shortcakes are the perfect accompaniment to all the lovely summer fruit that has been showing up in the produce section.

While I am usually more of a color girl, this sedate rustic farmhouse looks so lovely and serene.

In addition to the shoes I featured earlier this week, you can add these satin lovelies to my wish list.

Baking can be stressful and the ingredients can be temperamental, here are some tips and tricks to help you get a better handle on some baking do’s and don’ts.

This summer will see me (hopefully) taking a series of small trips. To help me up my packing game, I am going to try to implement these 10 suggestions.

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.
