Well, this weekend sure went by fast. Monday is here again- all too soon.
We actually had a great weekend. On Saturday afternoon my husband and I were able to go on a day-date to where I lovingly call “My Happy Place”- sitting at a cafe table at an outdoor shopping plaza sipping on my iced coffee. No kids in sight. Bliss.
The fun part of being a blogger is reading others’ blogs and getting to know them through comments and social media. The things that really catch my eye, I like to pass along to you.
✦ I admit I have an obsession with IKEA. I’m a diehard fan. One of my favorite mail days is when I see the new catalog in my mailbox. So I was so excited to see this catalog sneak peak over at Apartment Therapy.
- ✦ Austin has a great blogger community. Everyone truly seems to be supportive of other bloggers. Here’s Jesse Coulter’s recap of the latest ATX Blogger Mixer. I love going to these and getting to know other bloggers here in my city!
✦ I don’t know about you, but I struggle to get more than 6-7 hours sleep every night. I definitely tend to be a night owl, but that’s not really a good thing when morning comes early. Reading about the skin benefits of getting a solid 9 hours sleep nightly over at Refinery29 just might change my tune…
✦ Just as in my personal style, my home decor style tends to be colorful and- dare I say- quirky. One of my biggest interiors inspirations, Michael at Inspired by Charm, talks about the need to “keep it quirky”. Bonus: check out the little beach scene he made in the succulent pot. I died.
- ✦ Do you use a photo editing app? One of my favorites is A Color Story created by the folks at A Beautiful Mess. Here they’ve given us some tips on how best to use it for great results.
How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
