Friday Links

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! And it’s the first weekend of October, so I hope you have your bucket list of fall activities written down and ready to go! It’s going to be warm in NYC this weekend, but we’re still going to manage to squeeze in an apple festival because, duh. Whether you’re carving pumpkins or having a hard cider or two, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

– Such a creative reuse for toy blocks

– Totally obsessed with this console makeover

PS On an unrelated note, I know that the news this week and last (and let’s be honest, this whole year) has been too overwhelming to bear. But to all the survivors out there: I hear you. I believe you. I’m there for you. Thank you for speaking out.

Friday LinksHappy, happy Friday friends! And man am I glad it’s the weekend. We’re having Ryan’s family over for a housewarming on Sunday, so I’ve been super busy trying to get the apartment in order before they come. I think I’ll be able to pull it off AND it also means that I’m one step closer to sharing room reveals with you!  Sometimes you just have to set a deadline to kick it in gear, am I right?! Whether you’ll be spending the next few days relaxing, getting errands done, or decorating for fall, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

– Obsessed with this rainbow clutch!

– Might have to make these smoothie bowls this weekend.

– Just the cutest hook rack (and omg the video)!

– The e-book version of Hello Color is only $2.99 right now ($20 off)! Grab it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million and more!

– I don’t think I’ll ever tire of dip dye, I mean, those colors!

– Put a little sparkle in your step with this easy DIY.

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! I am back from the book tour, a little recharged, and ready to get back into the swing of things! All my attention is now on decorating our new space (we ended up being in the car for more days than we were in the apartment before we left), and I can’t wait to share the projects I’ve been working on! Mood boards, DIYS, and room reveals will be coming at you soon. For now, I hope you’re enjoying the last bits of summer before fall comes. Whether you’re heading to the beach this weekend, or staying cool in the ac, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

– A yellow shower?! I’m in love!

– I’m nervous these cookies are going to make be gain 40 pounds, because how will I ever stop eating them?

– Thinking it’s time to invest in a scarf or two after this tutorial.

My book is on sale for $17! Grab it while you can!

– Might need to make this wall hanging for our bedroom.

– This DIY raffia embroidered bag is at the top of my want to try list!

Friday LinksHappy Friday friends! Well I’ve officially lived in New York for a week now and LOVE IT. Between unpacking and exploring it has yet to hit me that I’m actually here to stay and that I’m not just up for the weekend visiting Ryan. I’m sure it will hit me the more the apartment comes together and the longer I’m here though! I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been up to with decorating, but in the meantime, here are some links you won’t want to miss:

Tie dyed cheesecake?! Whatttt!

– Such an easy DIY way to get organized

– A pretty rainbow of book spines that you can do too!

– A much needed detox juice (made without a juicer!)

– Can’t wait to give these muffins a try.. with the detox juice I guess.

– Considering making this shelving unit for our apartment
