I realized this week I’ve been a bit obsessed with hot pink lately. And it all started with a llama magnet. My mother-in-law mentioned she had free magnets from Zazzle coming, and asked if I wanted to pick one out. I’m the type of person that ridiculously loves a million magnets and pictures and menus on the fridge, so I jumped at the idea. After about a half hour of breezing through their millions of options (no joke!), I stumbled across this hot pink llama and knew that was it. As I was looking through recent purchases and gifts, I realized there was a growing trend. “I think I love hot pink,” I whispered to myself, a bit surprised. But why not? It brings a bit of sunshine and whimsy… and now I’m all in.

CoverGirl‘s new line inspired by the newest Hunger Games, Catching Fire is fabulous! The costumes and styling here are so fun and glamorous. Gorgeous color combinations! I’m definitely inspired to try something a little different with my makeup tomorrow.

My favorite sort of wedding DIYs are the sort that are good for something besides just a wedding! I had all these grand plans to craft for my wedding, but really never got it together in time. This tote feels like the perfect place to start. I adore Liz of Say Yes To Hoboken‘s  Blank Canvas Tutorials, and the beautifully simple neon dot tutorial is definitely my fave. Maybe a craft party is in order! Haven’t had one since I was about twelve…

So cute! All you need is a blank canvas bag, fabric paint and a pencil.

Did I mention I’m on jury duty right now? I guess not, since I’m not supposed to talk about the case.
It is driving me a bit crazy though – I don’t keep things bottled up very well! The days are a bit slow, but terribly interesting at the same time. Fortunately, each one is peppered with a number of small breaks… in a small back room. I’m so grateful that they have WiFi in the courthouse; I’ve been able to peruse the online world to my heart’s content. Some of my favorites from this week:

Bedroom Art.
A beer tasting party.
Gorgeous chunky cardigan.
Step 1 to great banh mi: pickled vegetables.
Glamorous headpieces.
Homemade service.
The best macarons in the world.
Beautiful furniture from reclaimed materials.
Print dress.
Polenta for breakfast? Or anytime? Yes please.
Black walls are so dreamy.
Watch.

(ps) The bouquet pictured above was for my Nana’s 86th birthday this weekend, from Pike Place Market  – the very best place in Seattle to get flowers!
