Weekend Link Love vol. 5

My week went kind of like this: wake up late, throw in dry shampoo, think it’s Wednesday when it’s actually Thursday, stress out, repeat. Do any of y’all have those weeks where you cant keep track of what day it is, let alone what time of day it is? I just couldn’t get my shit together this week! Anyways, I am so happy it is finally the weekend. My plan is to relax a lot, catch up on some of the shows I missed, and head to one of my favorite local restaurants, Southern Roots, for a date night. Sounds perfect in my book! Here are some links I was loving this week. *p.s. feel free to share any awesome animal videos….I am kind of obsessed with those haha!*

-I have been wanting this Ikea bookshelf for so long, but hadn’t made a trip to Ikea recently. After seeing all of these awesome Ikea hacks, I think it’s time to make a trip! Oh and there’s this awesome website dedicated to Ikea Hack ideas, tips, & tricks.

-This week has been one of those weeks where I just feel like throwing my hands up and saying “being an adult sucks!” I’ve been really stressed out about a few personal decisions that don’t seem to be working in my favor….and then I come across this…and I’m like, how do these people have it all together?!? But such is life, right?

-I will be the first to admit that I totally, 100% suck at doing my hair. I am not the person who always has cool hair-dos. It’s enough for me to kind of curl my hair…and even that took time to learn. I felt like this article about 29 hairstyle hacks was meant for me! Maybe I can learn some cool stuff now ha!

-I love going to local coffee shops (although I admit, I love Starbucks for the convenience). I have my trusty favorite local coffee shop that I frequent called Green Bean, but a new one recently opened up that I am wanting to try this weekend. But, I wouldn’t mind trying all 25 of these coffee shops around the world, either!

– This sunnies tee? so freakin’ cute. I originally saw it on my friend Brighton’s blog & thought it was adorable!

Have a great weekend, everyone! Thanks so much for reading! xx

  1. My week was super crazy as well! But mainly because I was jet lagged.

  4. It's so funny that you said that you suck at hair because I was literally going to comment on your Instagram photo saying that I love your hair! It looks like we have similar hair types! What products do you use and do you have any suggestions? ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks and have a great weekend!
