Happy happy Friday! I know that you most likely have fun plans for the weekend, so I’ll keep it short and sweet! Whether you’ll be going to BBQ, pool party, or just hanging out in the air conditioning, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

– Take me to the beach

– As if I couldn’t love cupcakes more!

– The perfect printable for note takers.

– I don’t want to eat ice cream any other way!

– Way better than a chill pill.

– Sometimes its better to think outside the frame!

– I wish this lasted longer than 14 days.

Treat Yo Self: June Favorites

Treat Yo Self: June FavoritesHappy official summer everyone! Maybe it’s the heat, but I’m finding it harder and harder to focus when there’s swimming and patio drinking to be had. And the more time I spend outside, the less time I’m on the internet to online shopping. Okay, but who am I really kidding. There’s always a time to online shop, weather and number of cocktails be damned. Here are some of my favorite finds from this month:

1. Ice Cream Stud Earrings– the essential earrings for summer! And let’s be honest, for the whole year if you’re an ice cream enthusiast like me.

2. Pom Pom Basket– I have been drooling over Eliza Gran’s pom poms since I found one of her wall hangings at a shop in LA. I just love the pom and basket combo!

3. Notebook Set– just the cutest notebooks to toss in your bag and go! Because ideas can strike at anytime.

4. Love Potion Flask– because drinking from a flask is a whole lot cuter and more acceptable when you call the booze love potion, right?

5. Phi Scissors– the gold and the shape of these! Swoon!

10 Beautiful Bathrooms

10 Beautiful Bathrooms(via Design Milk)

Alright friends, lets be honest. A good bathroom, with the perfect amount of sink space and a deep bathtub, is one the best aspects about traveling and staying in hotel rooms. But since a majority of us don’t live on the road, we’re stuck with our regular old bathrooms. But we don’t have to be. These ten beautiful bathrooms show that with a little bit of work (okay in some cases a lot), it is possible to have your home feel like a designer hotel. Sometimes you just need some pink tile in your shower.

If you’re a renter like me, there are still some quick fixes you can mix into your bathroom to make it a bit more beautiful. Swap those generic drug store bottles for pretty uniform ones (like this DIY). Upgrade your common fixtures, like nobs, shower head and toilet paper holder for nicer ones. And when in doubt and on a budget, a new shower curtain can work wonders.
