friday grab bag

Happy Friday! I’ll be spending the weekend catching up with old friends as we gather together for a wedding celebration, and I can’t wait to take some crazy trips down memory lane :-) And luckily I came across this ASOS dress that’s SUPER comfy (and would totally fit post-baby too!), so I won’t be stuck in a constricting dress all night – phew! This week I’m loving…

  • This geometric wallpaper from PatPrint that’s self-adhesive so you won’t be covered in wallpaper paste when you put it up
  • All the out-of-this-world jewelry in Virginie Millefiori’s Sun & Moon collection. Bonus points for the awesome styling too!
  • This sassy middle finger blank key from Cool Material that made me giggle because I’m 10 years old inside
  • These DIY pineapple favor bags from The House That Lars Built that would be so stinking cute for a Hawaiian themed summer party!

Happy Friday! This weekend is shaping up to be a fun one, filled with friends and baking and street fair meandering – the trifecta of a good time in my book :-) This week I’m loving…

  • The cheerful pom pom trim of this Lazy Oaf Pom Dress from Nasty Gal
  • These adorable safari tape holders from Verry Berry Sticker that’ll help keep your washi tape collection neat n’ tidy
  • Simple naked cakes like this strawberry beauty from The Simple Sweet Life. This is definitely on my must-make list once strawberry season hits!
  • These paint dipped alphabet magnets from Sarah Hearts that give a childhood classic the perfect grown up makeover

diminish the influence of fate

I’ve been meaning to read more books in my free time instead of, you know, doing wildly productive things like re-watching every season of Beverly Hills 90120 on Netflix and crushing on Dylan McKay like it’s 1993. To make things a bit more fun, I’ve decided to start pulling out quotes that strike a chord with me and turning it into a pretty graphic to share with you all!

“Diminish the influence of fate” comes from Chang and Eng by Darin Strauss, a facts-mixed-with-fiction novel about the incredible lives of real life Siamese twins born in 1811 who achieved great fame touring as an oddity attraction in America. Eventually they both married and went on to have a combined total of 21 kids (!!) Life deals all of us a certain hand of cards, some of which we are powerless to control. However it’s our attitudes and actions in the face of these obstacles that truly determine what our futures hold.

Happy Friday the 13th! We’re planning a little jaunt to California next month, and I can’t wait to leave my puffy coat behind to bask in all that glorious sunshine! We’ll be driving up the coast from Los Angeles to San Jose over the course of a few days – any must-see stops we should make along the way?? This week I’m loving…

Happy Friday! We’re taking a pass on all the Super Bowl fun this weekend to kick up our heels at a wedding instead – wahoo! I can’t say I’m too disappointed, since I usually pay more attention to the buffalo wings than the football anyway :-) This week I’m loving…

Friday Grab Bag - Jan 23

Happy Friday! I’ll be channeling badass Katniss Everdeen this weekend because we’re taking a class at an archery range that recently opened in the area! I’ve never done it before, so I’m super excited to get acquainted with a bow & arrow – let’s just hope there are no Hunger Games type injuries (fingers crossed). This week I’m loving…
