Succulent Love

I’ve been a big fan of succulents for years.  They were everywhere at our wedding and now they’re slowly creeping into all the nooks and crannies of our home.

They’re so beautiful and varied (and so easy to care for!)  I just can’t get enough.

Do you have a favorite flower or plant?  Are you a fan of succulents too?  Do you keep plants in your home?  Share in the comments!

Have a Scrumptious Weekend!

Happy happy Friday!  I am sooo excited for this weekend.  Travis and I are making our annual trip to Half Moon Bay for the pumpkin festival, where we will fill up on amazing food, fall treats, and feast our eyes on the 1700-pound, award winning pumpkin.

The weather has been gloomy and perfectly autumn— I am loving every minute of it!

So let’s kick off this weekend with some fun links from around the web…

Cute nails!

Would you trash the dress?

Awesome DIY stools made from side tables!

Fall in a box.

Pumpkin frozen yogurt… mmmm :)

Have you used a mattifier to keep your face from getting shiny?  I’m thinking about picking up this one for my clients…

I adore this hair color!

Cute idea: plant flowers in pumpkins for Halloween/Thanksgiving.

I’d love to curl into this bed with a good book…

And don’t forget to enter this week’s hair happy giveaway!

What are you up to this weekend?  Doing anything cozy or fall-related?  Is the weather changing in your neck of the woods?  Tell me what you’re up to in the comments!

Have a Great Weekend!

Fall rolled into San Francisco and it brought a nasty cold along with it!  I spent all day yesterday in bed, and it looks like my Friday is shaping up similarly.  Good thing Netflix play-it-now documentaries and herbal tea exists!

I’m hoping to be back on my feet by tomorrow— there’s lots of fun events happening in the city this weekend!  Until then, I plan to lay low and browse the web… care to join me?

I just ordered new business cards!  (Aren’t they cute?!)

Glen Hansard is playing the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival… be still, my heart!

So many boot socks, so little time.

Pretty sailboat tattoo

Love this simple design esthetic.

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to this on their birthday?

Lovely hair for fall…

Neat idea: wallpapered stairs.

I am OBSESSED with this light grey nail color!!

These thin crust pizza bites would make the best appetizers, don’t you think?

What are you up to this weekend?  Got any big plans or laying low at home?  Have you stumbled onto any must-share links this week?  Leave ’em in the comments!

Have a Cozy Weekend

San Francisco is known for its beautiful early fall weather, but it’s been quite chilly in our neck of the woods!  We have a busy, super-social weekend lined up, but I’m hoping we can find some time to light a fire and snuggle up on the couch.  If you have a little down time today, take a moment to check out these fun links from around the web…

Adorable playhouse makeover!  (Can I please have one of these?)

Fall wish list: biker boots.

Tempted to buy this nail polish… so cute!

Did someone say pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls?

A tattoo of your parents’ handwriting— love!

How to make your own boot socks from old sweaters!!

This vintage ponytail tutorial is making me wish I had long hair again…

Trav & I are on the hunt for the perfect Halloween costume.  Last year, we were boobs :)

And a few {bb} posts you may have missed…

Colored piano love.

Affordable fall makeup looks!

What are you up to this weekend?  Is it chilly in your neck of the woods, or are you soaking up the sun?  Got any good couple Halloween costume ideas?  Share in the comments!

Have a Celebratory Weekend!

We leave Italy tomorrow *tear*, but Sunday is my birthday and we plan to transition back into the real world by celebrating with brunch and a lazy city day.  It could certainly be worse :)  Plus, tomorrow marks the first day of fall (my FAVORITE season!)

I’ll be back to regularly scheduled blogging on Monday, but until then, here are some fun finds from around the web!

Mmmmm… breakfast bites

Anyone dying their hair darker for fall?  (I love this color!)

Cute cobalt trousers.

I want to have a little girl just so I can do this to her hair :)

Superhero nails.

What a cute way to organize makeup brushes!

Swoon-worthy nursery

Is this Halloween costume okay for a grownup? :)

Beautiful headband for a wedding.

I can’t wait to try my hand at DIY stick votives!
