Weekend Blinks + Guest Posting

A few blinks (blog links) to welcome your weekend with a bit of pretty:

Have you heard about Wedzu, the brand new online marketplace for handmade and indie wedding-related goods? Tons of eye candy and fun finds. Discovered via (Black Eiffel)

 I cannot sufficiently express my love for this chair spotted on The Style Files

Oh my. This salted caramel & chocolate cake recipe from Sweet Paul speaks for itself

Pretty lingerie spotted on Civetta

The NYTimes wants us to use our printers to create cool art (via Simple Blueprint)

I remember seeing block after block of these colorful rowhouses when I was in London a few years ago. My kind of street (via Desire to Inspire)

 How can you not smile at a tutu-clad prancing preschooler? (spotted on A Diary of Lovely's guest post on Oh, Hello, Friend)

I associate fall with cozy, colorful quilts like this one seen on Pennyweight

Haaaay, Friday! I'm pumped for a 3-day weekend thanks to Mr. Christopher Columbus. We have a few plans involving a hike/picnic at a nature reserve and apple picking (woo to the hoo!). Other than that, I'm stoked to sleep...and sleep...and did I mention sleep? (I know, I'm super interesting). What are you looking forward to this weekend?

*One of my best blogging friends Colleen (from Inspired to Share) is getting married this weekend and asked me to do a few "love-themed" guest posts for her this past week. Come check them out here, here, here and here.

  7. Warbyparker and GlassesShop.com are two great online optical stores with huge collection of affordable yet high quality prescription eyeglasses, you can find from classic to the latest fashionable prescription eyeglasses. And I really like these two glasses stores.
