Bon Weekend!

Some fun weekend reading...enjoy the winks (weekend links)!

+ Have you guys been watching House of DVF? I kinda love it....John even got a little into it when shit hit the fan about Kier's giant gold bow. Anyways, I heart and admire Diane so I thought this article on Refinery 29 was an inspiring read from a very smart biz lady.

+ If you don't follow Megan's blog, what the heck is wrong with you? Add it to your RSS immediately. I loved this podcast she did with Jessica of One Part Plant. She gets real and talks cancer, menopause, adoption, her book, upcoming screenplay, and....why meth babies are a deal breaker. ;)

+ TXSC 2015 is on....pack your best plaid, find yourself a s'mores stick and reserve your spot! This year, the conference is about getting back to basics, so the theme is CAMP. I'm super bummed that I won't be able to go this year because of SXSW commitments - boo hoo!

+ This illustration on Cup of Jo had me laughing out loud. I can't help but eye roll when couples are all "Weeee're pregnant!!!" so I am 100% behind that one. Another one are those stupid BINGS on airplanes that scares the crap out of you when it wakes you up. What are your pet peeves?

+ The '60s are my most favorite decade - the fashion! the beauty! the decor! the movies! - so this post was definitely bookmark-worthy. It has me rummaging through my hair bin for my teasing comb within 10 seconds flat.

+Speaking of which, have you seen these classic films? With the exception of the Marilyn Monroe movies, I haven't watched any of them. I feel a movie marathon coming on....get ready, Netflix.

+ Flourless pumpkin almond butter bars with dark chocolate and coconut? Ummm, get in my belly.

+ Elsie and Emma hit it out of the DIY park with this rad marbled clay ring dish tutorial. Brilliant!



Loving Lately 11.19.14

Petite Pavia Stud Earrings //  A little bit earthy, a little bit glam. Druzy anything is pretty rad, and I love the simplicity of these petite studs by Rifle + Radford.

Gold Foil Cocktail Glasses // I don't think I've ever met my daily requirement of water, but maybe these gilded cups would motivate me to chug, chug, chug a la my glory days in college?

Blaine Bowen Jewelry Sydney Ring // If you know me, you know I have a thing for triangles...especially triangle jewelry. Combine that with some sparkly stones, and you have a winner. Ding ding ding!

Flash Tattoos // The obsession still rages on....my faves for holiday are the simple and classic designs from Josephine and the pretty henna designs in the Sheebani pack, which benefits local Austin charity The Miracle Foundation.

Jonathan Adler 'Muse D'Or' Candle // It's kinda weird, super shiny, smells really good, and you can reuse the vessel to stash your keys, candy or peonies once the candle is burned up. Ambient lighting has never been this cool. 

MCMC Fragrances // I've had Anne's gorgeous line of fragrances on my radar for a while, and I finally got to spritz a few testers at the Aro pop-up at Feliz. I spotted them right as the event was closing and the "get the hell out of here" lights started flickering, so without a moment to second guess myself, I quickly snatched up a bottle of Phoenix because ermahgerd it is the most beautiful scent ever. No regrets. It's incredible.

Paige Leggy Extra Long Ultra Skinny in Mona // Shopping for pants is already an annoying task because I'm 6' tall, and throw my bubble butt into the mix, and it's a straight up pain in the you know what. These super long, super stretchy jeans are like a second skin and a total God send to long-limbed ladies like myself. Adios, chilly ankles.

Chooka Darren Rain Boot // A week prior to ACL, I darted over to DSW and scooped these up as a 'just in case it rains' option, and oh my gosh was I glad I had them. If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you'll know why. ;) I love that they don't scream "I'm a rain boot," you know? 



Should I Wash My Hair Today?

Thanks to Becky Murphy - a multi-talented (and pint-sized) author/illustrator/designer/friend here in Austin- this handy flow chart makes me feel validated about my answer usually being 'no.' This new one is also rad, and deserves some equally awesome wall real estate.

If you are looking for holiday gift ideas (props to you for not being a procrastinator like moi), I'd definitely hop over to Becky's print shop. It's full of quirky and motivational handmade gems that'll give you a little chuckle or pep talk whenever you look at them.

PS Of all the dry shampoos out there, this one is my ultimate favorite. Just in case you were wondering.
