weekend reading

Hello everyone. Here are some links for you to enjoy that I've accumulated for a couple of weeks. I hope you find something you like!

Summer always has me wanting to make friendship bracelets. These are really cute and look like they'd be easy to take on and off. 

These socks look so cozy! I have yet to do a patterned sock, so maybe this will be next on my list. 

Loved this post about giving yourself a dress code. I totally want to do the same. It's so much easier to get dressed when most things go with one another and are definitely your style. 

I'll continue the clothes-related links now..."unflattering" clothes. Yes. I am a fan of oversized things. They truly do keep you cooler!

I want everything on this site

This dress. I want it real bad. 

I am all about the elastic waistband these days. These shorts have one and they'd be cute in all sorts of fabrics. 

Look at this yarn! Really clever self-striping!

I really love brownies, so you know I bookmarked this recipe when I came across it. 

Did you ever press flowers when you were growing up? I definitely did, though I mostly forgot about it until I read this post. Now I want to press ALL the flowers. 

A friend recently told me about this site and wow, I am inspired. 

Back in April, I went to the DMA and Laura Owens had an exhibit there. I am still thinking about this horse painting of hers. Love the colors. 

I am super picky about perfumes. I will find one I like and wear it for years and years. Inevitably, it will get discontinued and I have to search for a new one. Such has been the case with Oud Sahara, a perfume I got at Urban Outfitters a year or two ago. The closest thing I've found to it is Le Labo Santal 33, but I live with a budget, so I'm looking for more affordable options. I'm wondering if Demeter's oud will smell the same?! They have soooo many scents- i had a lot of fun looking through them on their website. 
*UPDATE* In researching Oud Sahara, I have found out that UO has it again!! Hooray! I better stock up!

15 Tiny Things That Could Seriously Improve Your Life In Just a Month. I definitely want to do ALL of these. Some I'm doing but could stand to do more of. 

And finally, one of my friends posted last weekend about a mala she made. It made me want to make one. One of my besties also saw that friend's mala and also wanted to make one. So we're gonna do this thing (eventually). Here's a post my bestie sent me to get us started on our mala journey. 

See y'all later!
