Friday Finds

October 17, 2014

Dallas feels like heaven right now. The temperatures are a bit chilly in the mornings and just right in the middle of the day.  Fall is in the air, pumpkins are everywhere and blazer season is here.  I could not be happier.  I hope you are all enjoying fall wherever you are as well.  I have a few finds for you today-

1 ||  I just loved this photo.  I wish a had a sizable peony bouquet just lying around here too.

2 || The Skimm.  Sometimes I struggle with finding enough time to look through an entire newspaper so have been so happy with my free subscription to The Skimm where you get a daily email with the most important global news of the day. In short format. Perfect for my multi-tasking brain.

3 ||  I think this will be my Halloween costume this year. They have other animals like bunnies and khoalas.  I'm all about the minimalistic costume.  Just enough so I'm not called a party pooper.

4 ||  This is Jana Bek's brilliant gold leafed ikea hack.  I will trying this one out shortly.  What a beautiful result, no? And it seems pretty easy.

5|| Chunky heels are so comfortable.  These are ideal for fall.  I love the print. Loeffler Randall is having a 20% off sale with code IMAFRIEND.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
