Friday Favorites...

I came across the quote above on The Rockstar Diaries this week, and it really stuck with me. I had a couple of crabby, snappy moments earlier this week, and this was a nice reminder to be thankful that I have people around me (Chris) who want my attention (interrupting me while I'm on the phone) and to maybe not be so snappy (I have a tendency toward impatience).

How was your week? I've been working from home since yesterday, so have had a very quiet couple of days full of product writing and cat-distractions. I'm looking forward to a barbeque date tonight, which I plan on weaseling ice cream into somehow (I've married a man who is ambivalent about ice cream, how did this happen?). Tomorrow, thrifting! I've been so antsy at home these past couple of days, I can't wait to get out of the house! I also have plans to ambush Mandy to see her new kitten, Nimbus.

Here are the products and links that I'm loving this week:

 Kool Raid Coral Red Bustier Dress
This dress from Lulu's is so pretty. I can all too easily picture it styled with a leopard-print belt and gold jewelry. Temptation!

Tuscan Sun 1
 Love this look from the Ruche summer lookbook, that polka-dot dress is too cute!
 This rosegold bracelet from Spotted Moth is so simple and chic, it would look awesome on it's own or stacked with others.
candy cane pullover
We've had a few cool nights lately and there's nothing better than shorts with a sweater (in my opinion). This sweater from Bluesville, USA would be cute with cut-offs.

A few more:
So obsessed with this Pretenders muscle tee, perfect with cut-offs or jeans. I'm all kinds of obsessed with this crop-top bathing suit, someday I'll save up for a Mara Hoffman suit! And these sunset-patterned espadrilles are looking like a likely replacement for my beat-up Toms.

Need some cute in your life? Here's the Kitten Cam

And Ghetto Hikes has been making me laugh all week.

Have a great weekend!

That quote needs to be my motto. It is so easy to focus on yourself and your needs, but realizing that other people need you to is something to be thankful for.

That quote is so spot on and just the reminder I need to always think beyond the boundaries of my being.

I LOVE sweaters with cut-offs, just a shae it's too chilly here in England to wear shorts at the moment.

Ghetto Hikes is GENIUS! Thanks for bringing this into my life.

Happy Weekend. xxx
