5 Things I Read This Weekend

I am a big fan of Kendi Everyday and was delighted to get a peek into her bag here! I already ordered the Anthropologie notebook she uses, of course.

I have had The Happiness Project sitting on my desk for a while and, although I am reading 11/22/63, I am starting it THIS week. This blog post titled 30 Traits Happy People Have in Common (found through The Simply Luxurious Life) inspired me to stop putting it off.

Although I have already decided which headboard is mine in the future, I couldn't help but love this headboard DIY using pegboard from the Sugar & Cloth blog. Although I probably wouldn't use it as a headboard, it has my mind churning about how I can use pegboard!

Wondering what to do with those vintage brooches you have in your jewelry box? The tatertots & jello blog has a fantastic DIY on framing brooches on burlap. Super cute.

So, my birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks {yay!!} and some girlfriends have planned to come visit, so I am already outfit and hair planning! For Saturday at the vineyards I am thinking a topknot or fishtail. Usually I use a hair donut when styling my topknot but I am liking the look of a less structured topknot, so I have been researching tutorials and these are my favorites so far: ballerina bun or messy top knot and fishtail. I will be trying them out over the next week and will share a pic if they look good.

Did you read anything fun you would like to share? I would love to hear from you!


  1. I am loving that head board tutorial! So fun. I might have to do that sometime.
    I haven't heard of The Happiness Project until now, but I am intrigued. I might have to run out and get it.
    I hope you have a great week!

  2. Happy Early Birthday Miss!

    1. Thanks! I just might be a celebrate all month kind of girl. :)

  3. When is your birthday? Mine is on the 22nd :) I need to plan out my outfit/hair too!

    1. The 25th-let me know what you plan for your outfit/hair! Leaning towards the top knot. Happy early birthday!
