Friday Links

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! And what’s up last weekend of February! After this hell-ish week, I’m sure we’re all ready for a break. It already feels like spring in Philly with the mix of 70 degree weather mixed with all the rain we’ve seen. As much as I’m ready for months of sundresses, I’m still holding out for one last blizzard. Call me crazy, but it’s just too early for winter to be entirely over! I’m up in New York this weekend, exploring with Ryan and some friends, so be sure to check out my finds on Instastories. Whether you’re venturing out yourself, or staying curled up inside, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

The garland of my dreams!

– I wish my hair was longer to wear these bows.

– Obsessed with this DIY windowseat.

– Loving this mix of textures on this straw tote!

– How adorable is this free heart wallpaper?!

Dyeing your sheets is so, so easy!


PS hold your head up. There is still good and love in this world.

Chill Love Songs Playlist

chill love songs playlistWell happy Valentine’s Day! What better way to spend the day than celebrating love?! I considered putting together a playlist with nothing but those happy pop love songs, but thought I’d to match my mood this year instead. Coming off the the holidays, Ryan and I are keeping things low-key, so it only seemed appropriate to keep the music chill.  It’s a mix of classics with some newer songs mixed it, but overall, they’re just really great songs to slow dance and eat pizza to. But then again, what can’t you eat pizza to? You can listen right here or just scroll down below!

If you are needing something a bit peppier, here’s the playlist I made last year. And if you’re REALLY looking for a different type of approach for Valentine’s Day, I’ve got you covered with this ultimate breakup playlist.


PS don’t forget that tomorrow is the real holiday– all candy will be half off!
