Friday Favorites + Weekend Links

I love the art of gift wrapping, and this farm animal wrapping paper has me swooning.

Jason and I want to make some wooden shelves, and have played around with the idea of triangles or honeycomb. I think this just helped me make my decision. We just need to right tools to get started.

For our five-year anniversary of being together, Jason surprised me with eleven bright red balloons. Ever since then I realized how underrated balloons are for special occasions. I saw these confetti balloons on Etsy and I felt like I had to share.

I have fallen back in love with vintage t's. I think I may dress up this D.A.R.E. shirt with a skirt, bright cardi, and some black mary-jane wedges.

I've heard so many things about Parks and Recreation, so I decided to give it a go and I absolutely love it. I just finished season one and I'm hooked.

We have two cats. One grey Tabby named Baby, and one white Siamese named Farrah. I really like making our place look nice, and a big purple Booda cat dome doesn't quite fit in. I found a kitty washroom that looks like a crisp, white end table. You can find it here.

I absolutely love this blog about San Francisco street fashion. I am really looking forward to our trip there next month. If you have ever been, or know of any cool places to check out let me know.

I love visiting new local coffee shops, and yesterday Jason and I tried ChopShop. We shared a Beach Burn protein shake. If you live near the Tempe area you should definitely check this place out. I should mention that they have a life-size chess set, which could not be more awesome.

Oh IKEA, how I love you so. I found this rug, and it would go perfectly with our freshly painted concrete floors.

Ever since I took a psychology course a few semesters ago I have been fascinated by ink blot tests. Last time I was at UO I came across these cards and a book. This will definitely be on my bookcase in the near future.

Have a wonderful weekend lovelies! ♥ What are some of your current favorites?

    1. Your way sounds just as cute :) For my sister's baby shower I used brown paper, lace ribbon, and some fresh lavender tucked into the lace. Gift wrapping can be so fun!

  3. Parks and Rec! Show of my heart! I want to be Leslie Knope when I grow up. ;)
