Happy Friday all,
I know that once again I have made you wait an entire week for a post. But, like I said before, busy, busy, busy! I am all moved in to my new apartment, well, I guess you could say partially moved in. You see, I didn’t have alot of items to move, and basically the majority of my items were kitchen related…are you surprised? Needless to say, my parents (whom I am so grateful for) did most of the heavy lifting of the boxes and it took them a total of thirty minutes to move me in to my new abode. Then, I had these awesome guys from this “little” furniture store, I think you might know it…you know, Ikea, deliver my bed and mattress. Whoo-hoo! Thank goodness for my Dad, and his mad “I can put together an iron bed frame in 5.2 seconds using some dental floss and a makeshift wrench” skills, and my mom and her gnarly HGTV design skills, I had a comfortable place to sleep my first night in my new apartment! Now, because it takes me a while to make decisions, I have yet to furnish the rest of my apartment. I am looking for some vintage esque furniture, also I absolutely love this couch from Ikea (add some plush pillows…yes please), it is super comfy! I also need some barstools (I think my mom is giving me hers), but for now I have made myself an awesome makeshift barstool with two of my blue moving containers…hey, don’t judge me…it works! So, that is an update on my life as of late. Anyhoo, I had this idea that would keep my blog entertaining for Friday, since it is one of my favorite days of the week. Throughout the week I am a blog junkie, whether its a food blog, fashion blog, or my new interest Pinterest, you name it, I am stalking it! That gave me an idea to share with you some of my favorite links that I have come across throughout the week! I will call it, Friday Link Love! I will usually have a theme for each Friday, for example, maybe the theme will be Mexican dishes, so I would post links to my favorite Mexican dishes on various blogs that I absolutely love. Other weeks it will be random, for example, maybe a newfound site that I have come across and am addicted to, like my new favorite, Pinterest…if you haven’t discovered this yet…get on it, now! Today is going to be all about my interest in Pinterest, haha! Basically, Pinterest is a virtual pinboard that lets you organize and share all of the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. This is an awesome way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. Pinterest has so many different categories, for example, you can spend hours looking at clothes under “Apparel”, or gaze at gorgeous landscapes in the “Photography” section. Since stumbling across Pinterest, I have spent the majority of my time in the “Food and Drink” section, where I get inspiration for creating new dishes. I have also spent quite sometime in the “Home+Furniture” section getting ideas on how to make my apartment ultra chic! In my “free” time I have also found myself looking at dresses in the fashion section. Of course, I can only dream of ever being able to afford one! My alter ego is a wealthy socialite who can afford a gorgeous wardrobe. Anyhow, today I wanted to share with you some of my favorites from the site! Here goes nothing!
A quaint bakery in England
My new wardrobe…if I was princess of Wales
Lululemon Manifesto…conquering one day at a time
My next destination…Italia
One of my dream kitchens
Bahaha! I just had to put this one up for laughs…french bulldog in updog pose!
I will be able to do this yoga pose two years from now…what a badass!
This cake is just way to pretty to eat
I am obsessed with Basset Hounds…this is Louie…my future dog
If I could live in a tree house…it would be this one!
Believe it or not…that is my bedspread from Ikea
This reminds me of my sister and I…we always had tea party’s when we were little
Well, I hope you all enjoyed my first Friday Link Love! I would suggest that you check out Pinterest a.s.a.p.! Beware, this site can and will distract you, so I don’t recommend surfing Pinterest while at work or while taking care of small children…you could be looking at a slew of kitchen tables and the next thing you know, your kids are playing in traffic…not a good idea! Also, sorry for my lack of recipes this week, I will post some new recipes soon! In the meantime, treat yourself to a fancy dinner, maybe at your favorite restaurant…better yet, hire a personal chef! Live, love, laugh, it’s Friday be merry!
