i am an avid blog reader. i cannot go a day without my dose of blog surfing—thank you bloglovin app—and i try to bookmark my favorites to revisit. here are some stand-out posts from this past week.
||| 1. beauty. ||| a fine frenchy | the beauty department // fabulous hair how-to inspired by a fine frenzy (new album out this october!)…i have been searching for a good french twist tutorial and this one is flawless.
||| 2. food. ||| pesto party | mrs. lilien // mrs. lilien is just too fabulous for words and i am completely obsessed with this blog. the layout, the content, the typefaces, the colors…obsessed. now that i’ve finished gushing, check out her recipe for pesto (yum!) and make it your own!
||| 3. funny. ||| to justin timberlake: our man-date itinerary | hello giggles // man date itinerary for a hypothetical date with jt…a super fun date complete with an itinerary filled with fedoras, thumb rings (maybe…), roller skating, ryan gosling, lasagna, toddlers in tiaras, parents, triscuits with hummus, a dog, an elliptical, and high-5s (“…but not too many times, like, probably just the right amount of times. i think that will probably be 7 times.”)
||| 4. diy. ||| gold studded tray diy | fabulous k // easy, affordable, and completely adorable! trays are quite possibly the best way to display the knickknacks you have lying around in an organized and appealing way and this post shows you how to create a very fashionable tray for under $15!
||| 5. fashion. ||| stella inspired | coco + kelley // stella mccartney never disappoints and the spring ’13 campaign has all the elements i look for in a collection—leopard, florals, lace, pastels, stripes, and quirky glasses…i’m on board!
||| 6. art. ||| ladies in dior | paper fashion // katie rodger’s blog paper fashion has become a daily must for me—gorgeous inspiration for all of your artistic and fashion forward whims. this specific post was a favorite this week because j’adore dior, of course!
||| 7. décor. ||| real living: daydreaming in turquoise | the decorista // i am in love with the cognac leather sofa in the second photo (and the shoes to match in the right-hand corner!) and i am a real sucker for wallpaper. turquoise is one of my favorite colors to incorporate into my home and the images in this post are spot-on.
