Love Friday: May 25th

I’m a little late on the Friday Love because I had to go out of town for a doctor’s appointment. Doctor’s appointments are always quite the tragedy for me. I have a terrible fear of needles and I had to get stuck twice this time. Apparently when you are so nervous that you are sweating and crying, your blood doesn’t want to evacuate you body…

It’s embarassing, but good to share our fears, don’t you think? Anyway, these links are making me feel loads better.


This gorgeous ’40s hair tutorial from The Beauty Department and Lauren Conrad. 

9. 14 Easy Ways to get Insanely Motivated from INC. All easy in theory.


Etsy’s How-to Tuesday‘s 10 colorful crafts links. I particularly like this one by Hew and Sew, because it is EASY!

7. The Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction finalists look excellent. I’m especially excited to read Swamplandia! A surrealist story about 12-year-old gator-wrestling Ava Bigtree and her eccentric family. Sounds good, huh?


This kitchen is so gorgeous. I don’t even usually like green, but this is divine.

5. Since my tragic doctor experience today, I’ve been Googling how to overcome fears. I found this article from The Positivity Blog to be comforting.


Sparkly Lemon Cookies! By Martha, of course.

3. This summer, Barnes and Noble is offering a free book to kids who read 8 books and fill out a reading journal!


I’m thinking about buying a pair of Saltwaters for the beach because I despise flip-flops. Are Saltwaters too cliche? It seems like I see them everywhere, but they’re some of the only sandals I’ve seen that I don’t hate. The gold is kinda pretty, right?


I’m so excited about this movie! I hope it lives up to my expectations, it looks AH-MAZING!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend! Do ya’ll have any plans?

    Gatsby a la Baz Luhrman is going to be decadent Bollywood-style madness — which could be a jolly good time. (: But I don’t know if it’ll even touch Robert Redford and Mia Farrow’s exquisite original.
