napa bound



Happy Friday, guys! I’m signing off a little early this week to head to Napa, California (I’ve never been!) for a work trip–with hopefully a few sips of wine included! Because I probably won’t be able to get to it on Sunday, I’ve included my “Sunday Edition” links from this week below–there was so much prettiness out there, it was hard to narrow down!


-I kid you not when I say I’ve been waiting for this day. The Chicago home of Danielle Moss is up on The Everygirl. And you guys: It. Is. Amazing.


-Living in Astoria for the past year and a half, I’ve fallen in love with Greek food. How genius is this no-bake Greek pizza?


-Last year for my joint birthday party, I attempted (key word) to make my friend and I an ombre cake (see here). It didn’t come out very good, and this one from House of Earnest is definitely showing me up.


-I can’t even handle how cute these sombrero cupcakes are–if I was doing something for Cinco de Mayo, I’d definitely make them!


-Amanda let us in on her beauty routine and some of her tips are serious gold. Pop on over to learn a thing or two!


-I wish this entire outfit was in my closet. The entire outfit. In my closet. Right this minute.



I hope you all have a fabulous weekend–whatcha got going on?!







Just a few pretty things catching my eye around the web this week…

-Angel food cakes is one of my favorite desserts ever–with strawberries and ice cream of course. Combining all three? Yum!

-It’s no secret that I really (really) like egg sandwiches. This upgraded version with bacon jam from Perpetually Chic sounds all sorts of amazing.


-Have you seen Emily’s gorgeous entryway? Serious, the gold, the color–it’s perfection!


-I love bright outfits for spring–color, color, color! This yellow skirt on Caitlin from A Little Dash of Darling is so pretty!


-Speaking of color, no one does it better than Jenny! Pink lemonade is one of my favorite drinks (naturally), so I’m loving this outfit.


-Have you seen Brynn’s wedding yet? She had some of the most beautiful details I’ve ever seen! Seriously, go check out the prettiness, asap.







Just a few pretty things catching my eye around the web this week…

-Nothing makes tea time (or snack time at your desk) more luxurious than homemade madeleines. I’m dying to try the almond orange and honey version from Buttercream & Roses.

-I’m really into typography manifestos lately (I even made my own here this past week). Striking Truths has some (forgive me) striking versions–this one is my favorite right now!

-I’m obsessed with this blog lately. The photography, the feel–everything!

-It’s no secret I love anything and everything French. I’m dying to get my hands on this book!

-I love the natural, simple look of this gorgeous leather iPad case from Camille Styles. Plus, it looks so easy!

-These slow roasted tomatoes from Victoria are money. I should know, I’ve already made them three times…









Just a few pretty things catching my eye around the web this week…

-This DIY sunglass pouch from Lovely Indeed is so cute and crafty. I’m already thinking about making it for a few friends before spring hits!

-Valentine’s Day is over, so naturally you now need something to do with all those chalky conversation hearts. You should probably make Leah’s Conversation Heart Vodka right now.

-People are always amazing me with their creativity, and this guy’s artistic and genius use of the Nemo snow is pretty darn awesome.

-I love Clara’s “Blog Notes” series, especially this week’s post on building your brand. A must-read!

-I’m a dessert gal, through and through, so any time I can make my favorite indulgences just a tiny bit healthier I do it. I can’t wait to try out Ashley’s healthier french silk pie (which still looks 100% sinful and delicious!).

-Warby Parker launched their new Hayworth Collection and the Edgeworth style is completely calling my name. They’d be perfect for summer at the shore this year–and they’re described as the red lipstick of eyewear. Um, yes please.

-Goat cheese has quickly become my new snack obsession, so I was beyond excited to see Jaclyn’s goat cheese, honey and thyme spread recipe. Yum, yum, yum!!

-I’m fully convinced there’s nothing better than couples in love. Go here, view this and feel happy.





Just a few pretty things catching my eye around the web this week…

-Katie’s amazing Valentine’s gift idea for your guy (I’m probably going to buy it for myself, too).

-I love nothing more than getting my girls together–especially if there’s food involved. This Single Ladies Brunch from Design Love Fest is too cute!

-This social media etiquette post over on Design Sponge is a must read. Major don’ts? Negativity, bashing and over hashtag-ing

-Looking to give something sweet this Valentine’s Day? Try these homemade chocolate bars, as seen on The Vault Files.

-As a new-ish blogger, I’m constantly trying to stay fresh, so I loved Lisa’s post this week on creating original content.

-How adorable are Anne’s washi tape stickers? So easy and creative!

-We got Sugarfina products delivered to the office this week (and they were so. yummy.). Even cuter? Their fun giftsets–like this anti-Valentine’s Day one (sweet, even if you are pro-Valentine’s Day!).
