1. Becoming Minimalist Keeps It Real
I came across this post "9 Lies Keeping our Schedules Overwhelmed" and it was a bit of a positive kick in the pants. If you're feeling like you're constantly overbooked, give this a peruse.
Check out this little hotspot off of Whyte Ave and Gateway Blvd. The interior is absolutely incredible. Done by a movie set designer, it feels like you've been transported out of Edmonton into another little world.
Having been on the lookout for a cute portable charger for a while, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this beauty from Nasty Gal. It's gold (we love us some gold) and comes with a universal wire meaning you can charge your iPhone, Samsung, reader, and other devices all with this little guy.You'll be everyone's new best friend- that is, if you want to share!
One of my new fave blogs, Newly Loved, recently posted this very Martha-worthy shoot showcasing her Apple Cider cocktail recipes. A) It sounds delish (when was the last time you had apple cider?!) B) How amaze is this presentation? It doesn't get much more fall than cider in apple cups garnished with cinnamon staged in a park in fall. This has pinterest written all over it!
Every year, Allure researches and names their top picks for makeup, hair, nails, and every other beauty fix that you can think of. It always keeps me wanting more! I usually end up trying at least a handful of products that I wouldn't have otherwise (many of them available at drugstores, baby!), and basically end up hoarding beauty supplies... not that there's anything wrong with that!
I'm usually one for a more modern decor look, but there's something about this graphic flower print that I love. This pattern could be used anywhere from a shabby-chic or vintage space to a more streamlined room and look equally amazing either way.The best part? No expensive installer needed - this stuff is peel and stick (and repeat, if needed)! Genius!
