Happy Weekend! | Happy Things, Pretty Things #1


What are you up to this weekend? This is a big one for us. My baby is graduating from pre-school, it’s my birthday and we have lots of chilling at the lake to do. :) My mom is making my favorite dinner tonight (the best lasagna in the world!). I request it every year for my birthday. Tomorrow night is Mexican with friends. I’ve basically got the whole weekend’s menu planned!

This 3-day break is coming at just the right time, and I’m planning to soak up the sun and all the family time I can get. While you’re by the pool or just relaxing on the couch, here’s a few links that caught my eye this week (and one or two favorites). 

1. I die over everything from Studio McGee. Here’s their latest home tour. The colors, the finishes, everything is so classic and I love it!

2. Do you ever buy something from Amazon and forget, just to be surprised with a little treat in the mail? Guilty. This rose quartz roller was definitely an impulse buy, but at under $9, I’m not feeling too bad about it. I’m testing it out now, so stay tuned for whether this beauty tool is the real deal or just a fad. 

Here’s a little background from Lauren Conrad on jade rollers and whether you should be using one.

3. A history of my dining room design woes, and the light fixture that makes me swoon.

4. Wish I had known this when my hair was falling out after having a baby. Veronika offers some great tips. 

5. Black or Rose Gold? Because flip flops. 

6. Because I read every article about having bright eyes

7. Just ordered! For $15, I’m taking a risk.

8. Corn, feta and cous cous salad. I almost always tweak every recipe I make in some way. Not this one. It’s so fresh and delicious, even more so if you use fresh corn instead of canned. It’s light, flavorful and is the perfect side for your Memorial Day cookout. Recipe here.
