Friday Link Love

Happy Friday, folks! It has been a roller coaster of a week on this end. A bit of it was getting back into the groove of things after my Savannah weekend, then I got inexplicably sick on Tuesday, but Wednesday found me back at the office hustling to get my work for the week caught up and out. Needless to say, I am a little relieved for the weekend to be here. Our plans are a bit up in the air at the moment, but I am hoping to sneak in a little down time in the midst of catching up on all of the things I let slide so I could go out of town last weekend. Fortunately, the weather looks like it is going to be really nice so at least I won’t be running through puddles or trying to avoid getting sunburned walking from my car to the grocery store. *fingers crossed*

The oral history of one of my all time favorite shows, Daria.

Wishing I could add this brownie pan to my baking arsenal.

If you’re feeling ambitious this weekend, a tutorial for making your own blooming marshmallows for hot chocolate.

Tallahassee is pretty much covered in pink and white (and pollen) now that spring is upon us. I think this free printable wrapping paper is a perfect complement to what is going on outside.

I would have loved to be in this bloggers shoes; how could you say no to those sweet faces?!

Somewhere in the depths of our storage closet lives a juicer, I haven’t felt the need to look for it in year, but this recipe has me thinking it might be time.

This gorgeous lady proves you can be sexy at any age.(maybe don’t click on this one while you’re at the office)

Aaaaaaaaaand, I am on the road to Savannah! I am meeting my college roommate Rebecca in one of my favorite places for a girls weekend. We are going to soak up some history, eat some incredible food, and try to pack as much fun into our two days as possible. I go to Savannah quite a bit, but it is always really interesting to me how different the experience is depending on the person I am traveling with. Fun fact, my very first trip to Savannah was with Rebecca, I was looking at going to SCAD for graduate school. While that didn’t happen, the spell was cast, and I haven’t been able to get enough of the place since. If you feel like following along in my journey, I’ll be posting on Instagram all throughout the trip. In the mean time, here are some links to help you kick off your weekend.

A diy that will make your outfit instantly look like you put in a lot more work. Plus, who doesn’t love vaguely princess-y shoes?

Fancy dessert for your next dinner party? Yes please!

Andy and I host family pretty regularly, and since we have a pretty large backyard, I’ve considered maybe putting a renovated trailer in the backyard for when we have a full house and need some extra space. Using this post for some inspiration.

Sunglasses season is going to be here any day now; here are some tips on getting the best shape to suit your face.

My inner Gilmore Girls fan is very much wanting this Luke’s diner shirt.

Home Ec exam from 1954, I passed, but barely. What did you get?

I have been considering trying my hand at making all natural cleaners for the house. This grapefruit recipe seems like a good place to start.

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.

And the first full week in February draws to a close. The last two weeks have been pretty busy, in a good way, and as far as I can tell, there isn’t an end in sight. I am going to try to carve out some down time for myself this weekend. Try to do a little house work, maybe even take a nap. I feel like the poor cats have only caught glimpses of me as I am running in to change and then back out for the next round. For most cats this wouldn’t be an issue; my cats however are spoiled and neurotic, so I am going to have to make sure that they get some of the designated “down time”. Also, if you missed it, we had our very first guest post of 2017 yesterday, you can check it out here. Happy Weekend!

Tulle on earrings? Some said weird, I say yes please!

Both this floral infused party and this low key brunch would both be wonderful ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

And speaking of brunch, these chocolate waffles would be enough to brighten anyone’s morning.

Also, this Valentine’s playlist would be a fun addition.

You could even whip up one of these floral napkin rings to really take things over the top.

This sleep shirt speaks the truth.

For some pretty pastel inspiration, check out this instagram page full of amazing bakes.

I sort of wish I hadn’t already gotten Andy’s Valentine’s gift, because I could have gotten these boxers for him then.

Then there is also this DIY truffle kit; maybe buy it and use it for a date night in instead of Valentine’s Day?

Weekend Weekend Weekend! Guys, it’s Friday, and I’m so relieved I’m almost giddy. I am ready to not be at the office and keep my adulting to a minimum. I may even decide to declare it a stretchy pants only weekend. We’ll see, it might be cold tomorrow, and I am planning on being outside so…maybe not my best idea, but other than that? I don’t see any issues.

I want to take a moment out of my end of the week gaiety to say something on a topic I don’t often address in this space. There has been a lot of disappointing things happening in our country in the last few weeks. Regardless on what side of the political spectrum you choose to be on, I just want to encourage you to be open minded and kind to the people in your community. Diversity is what makes life interesting, and no one should be persecuted for a single facet of their being. So reach out, be supportive, and if you’re unhappy with the way things are looking, don’t just complain, do something (however small) to make a difference. For better or worse, we’re all in this together.

I was really late to the beauty blender trend, but after years of applying the majority of my cosmetics with my fingers, I do have to admit that it does make a difference. Now make up mavens are shaking things up again with this new silicone beauty blender. It has glitter guys, we all know I am going to buy one.

Thinking of throwing a Galentine’s Day party? Check out this post on how to throw a kick ass celebration using only items from the dollar store and a little DIY love.

Also, I think this could be a great craft for the aforementioned Galentine’s Day party.

This soup this weekend! And I love that there were veggie friendly conversion options!

As we all know, I am a big fan of lists, and I think this one with 28 things you should do in February has some pretty good ideas.

As I am still on the search for the perfect “me” perfume, I am considering giving a few of the all natural bands a try.

I want all of these! My UD addiction seems to be worsening…
