five things

Today I’m taking a cue from Cupcakes and Cashmere, and sharing five things I’m loving this week…

{getting spoiled by the chance to work with luxury flowers for a client with impeccable taste…}
neon craft paint DIY
{setting aside time to work on my DIY to-do list…}
gerbera daisy headband
{creating extra special pieces, like this gerbera headband for an employee’s niece to wear at the hospital the day her baby sister was born…}
{a stocked and organized walk-in cooler…}
{kicking things into gear for a busy season as summer draws to a close.}

  9. My favorite pic is the last one. I get a major hard-on for office supplies, and I love desk pictures. Is that weird? It’s weird.

    • I bought that lime green cover on Amazon for like, $4! It’s like a neon beacon that helps me find my phone quickly when I’ve misplaced it. Which is all the time.

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
