Weekend Blinks + Lounging

Aaaand it's Friday, folks! I hope you enjoy these blinks (blog links) that made me smile recently:

A cool article about Beauty in Play via Historiful

This Coney Island Summer Love shoot makes me all sorts of happy (by the ridiculously talented Jamie)

 Perhaps my most desired item for fall: The Frye over-the-knee boot, spotted on Greedy Girl

A real-life engagement session inspired by The Notebook, seen on Green Wedding Shoes. (And no, that's not Rachel McAdams, but isn't she the spitting image?)

Illustrations (and the entire amazing blog) of Garance Dore, via Fleurishing (another equally as amazing, recently discovered blog. check it out).

A sweet cottage, via Style Files. (I like everything about it, but what immediately caught my eye were the cutout bird details above the doorway. Hello, home inspiration).

 Oh. Wow. Double Rainbow M&M Malt Cake: see the full recipe and hilarious inspiration here

Wooden Lovebirds by Enormous Champion make me happy, spotted on Lushlee

I can't get enough of this genius time line save-the-date via La Petite Coquin. (Lately, I'm really drawn to unique & spunky twists on classic wedding traditions)

 This pig is afraid of mud, so his owner puts him in mini wellies! (via Alkeemi)

I love the idea of painting a minimalistic dresser in complementary colors, spotted on Remodelista

What's on your agenda this weekend? We're having some friends of Tiho's from college visit tonight and are planning on taking them to a local lounge with live music, tapas (yum!) and a signature drink menu. I'm pretty stoked. Other than that, our weekend is free of plans, so I'm thinking it will involve a whole lot of lounging. Oh and I just realized it's Friday the 13th. Are you superstitious? I'm not, but I still won't be stepping on any cracks today :)

Also, many, many warm thanks to any new followers and all your sweet comments this week. You make me so happy.

Wishing you a great one.
