‘Round the Web

A Pretty Penny | Popcorn Centerpiece

Grab your popcorn — or hydrangea-in-a-popcorn-bag, which made the cutest centerpieces for a client’s She’s About to Pop baby shower earlier this month — and check out some of my favorite things from around the ol’ Internets this week.

What I Instagrammed vs What Was Really Happening, or My Entire Life is a Lie – I laughed; I cried (from laughing); I totally related.

Watch this HuffPo video and try not to smile. Impossible!! “You haven’t truly lived until you’ve tried to do yoga with a cat on you.

Speaking of adorable animals, here are 10 Must-Follow Animal Instagram accounts you can follow for a daily dose of critter cuteness. Little @samsonthedood looks almost exactly like Doak when he was a  puppy! Before he got his first haircut and turned blonde, which was just the weirdest.

I love this Home Depot DIY Wooden Storage Crate project. I’d like to make one to stash away extra blankets/books/magazines in our living room. Or maybe several, to create a version of this modular bookcase?

  • 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
