♥ Last week Kat said if a song/music video were my spirit animal, this would be it. I'm inclined to agree as I've been obsessed with it ever since! ♥

Other Awesome Things:
// Foodie Finds: Y'all! Banana Pudding Cupcakes! Why did I not think of this?! -- And Banana Split Bites (mess free!) WHAT?! Sweet tooth overload here. -- Raspberry and White Cherry Yogurt Pops, perfect for summer! -- White Chocolate Tart with Berries -- Skinny Taco Dip -- Layered Potato Ham Bake with Asparagus!

// 72 creative and smart typographic logos. I love looking at stuff like this. 

// If you're running low on time in the morning but still want a delicious smoothie, try putting these smoothie portion bags in your freezer! Pretty brilliant. Definitely going to try it.

// A quick grateful shout out to Miss Stela over at StelaBird! She is an absolute gem! One of the only ladies working her own small biz that has been willing to lend any helpful advice or a friendly ear. If you're not reading her blog and keeping up with her adorable boutique, you're missing out! 

// This week in the mail I received Chantilly's new EP and I've been listening to it pretty non-stop since Tuesday. You can check out how to buy it here! A digital copy is only $5, and a physical cd only $7! Well worth it and you'll be supporting an indie artist!

// Charley's latest post has be eagerly wanting to try baked golden beets! Sounds silly, I know, but I'm intrigued!

// I love this pallet wine rack! Might put another pallet out back to good use!

// Mary put together her "dream mall" featuring her favorite stores. Kind of fun! My dream mall would be Ikea, Cath Kidston, Dorothy Perkins, Asos, and Ross haha! Not exactly feasible.

// Speaking of dream shopping, these are on my wishlist: Kate Spade dinnerware (how pretty!), this pleated chiffon dress, this hot pink purse, the Ida shoes in seafoam + coral!, Hervana blush from Benefit, Two Faced Powder Duo, and this YSL Gloss Volupt?. (I'm determined to get ~decent at makeup okay!)

// How about some tree stump planters?!

// I really want to buy this book after seeing a snippet of it on Megan's blog!

  3. Haha, thanks Kaelah. The texture is surprisingly crunchy and just... good. Baked with olive oil, salt and pepper. xo

  4. I just learned about Ron Mueck in my Art History class. Leterally, today. I love his work. Also, that photo inside of a photo is the best idea. I think Dom and I are going to try that.

  5. Thanks for posting about my banana pudding cupcakes! Your blog is AWESOME. It's my first time here, and I'll definitely be back.

  6. I love these! Ron Mueck is amazing- I did a project on him in college.

    I also love that couple holding a photo. What a cute idea. I can only imagine how amazing that will look as the years go by.


  7. this was a good one! they all are good, but this one i was like "oooh!" for all of them hehe

  8. Where in the world did you find that stand mixer. It made my brain explode - so incredible.

    1. I found it on Tumblr with no source credit! I think it's a painstakingly long DIY!

  9. Just discovered your blog, I love the 'Things I Love Thursday' posts! The birdhouse is especially adorable :)

  15. Hey lady,
    Those tree stump planters are freaking adorable, geez.
    I sense those (hopefully) making an appearance
    in my lawn this summer! Also wanted to say the new
    layout is great.

    Hope all is fabulous,

    Liz at Simple Nests {}

  17. OMGOSH! I saw that couple that takes anniversary photo's every year on pinterest, and I am starting it this year on our 1st anniversary! We already blew up a photo of us kissing under our arch from the wedding last year, and this year we are returning to the arch for a brand new pic :) LOVE THAT IDEA!

    Also, that bejeweled mixer?! YES. have to share with my bestie, thanks :D

  18. Oh wow! My daughter would love that Kitchenaid. I love Mean Girls.

  19. OH my god, I love Cameo Lover!! I'm glad that Youtube doesn't keep track of how many times you watch videos (or maybe it does and I just don't know it) but I've watched that video SO many times, along with Settle Down and the other one.... which has slipped my mind.

    Now excuse me while I pause Tool and play Cameo Lover while I continue cleaning my store haha!

  20. I heart your thursday loves.

  24. Great post! I love Mean Girls and that Emma Watson quote, thanks for sharing :)

  25. I really want that bejeweled kitchen aid mixer. I love the dream mall idea, I'd have to think on what stores would be in my dream mall. Happy Thursday, even though at this point it is almost over.
