What better way to get a jump on the weekend than by checking out my favorite things of the week?
How cute are these cookies for Valentines Day? This would be a fun baking project to do with kids or a sweet way to show someone a little love. Beware: The Jenny Cookies blog and Instagram will definitely make your mouth water.
Who doesn’t love a good bar cart? This is one summer party accessory I can’t wait to own one day. I’ve seen so many, but I really loved this idea of customizing your own. Sand & Sisal shows you how to DIY your own faux marble bar cart. Her blog is packed with recipes, more DIYs and decorating tips. You can also follow her on Instagram here.
If you find yourself in a style rut lately, look no further because Merrick’s Art has some tips for how to get out of a t-shirt and jeans slump. She lists some fun ideas in this post on how to keep the classic combo of a shirt and jeans spicy! My personal favorite is her suggestion on adding a fun hair accessory, like a scarf. For more style inspiration and some adorable family pictures, you can follow Merrick’s Art blog or her gorgeous Instagram.
Over this next week, let’s work on giving up some control. I personally struggle with anxiety and letting go to trust the process is a constant challenge for me, so this mantra is something I hope to make a priority in life. Is anyone else a control freak?
Is anyone taking a trip to Aruba soon? If so, I suggest checking out The Social Girl Traveler’s post about how you can discover more than just beaches in Aruba. Aruba has never been on my travel destination bucket list, but after looking at her stunning pictures, I am definitely intrigued! You can follow her along through her blog or her Instagram.
