Friday Five

FF

Happy Friday! After an on-the-go week, I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend. A few weeks ago I started a new job as a copy editor at Caesars Entertainment, which I am loving! On Tuesday we took a work field trip to The LINQ with a plan to see Grumpy Cat at Kitson and ride the High Roller. Unfortunately the line was ridiculously long to see the cultural phenomenon that is Grumpy Cat, but I was able to ride the 550-foot-tall observation wheel. We went right at sunset and I loved seeing the amazing views of the Strip and surrounding valley. Even though it wouldn’t be my first pick of places to live, Vegas definitely does have its perks.

I’ve decided to make my “Friday Five” posts into a series, so every week I will post a few highlights from the week. Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

Pinterest Picks

When I have blogger’s block, I look to Pinterest for inspiration. Whether it’s a DIY project or a recipe for brownies baked in a mason jar, it never disappoints. The only problem is that I don’t have enough time to try everything! Here are some of my favorite pins, which I hope to try in the future or just get my creative juices flowing.

The statement necklace is subtle and blends perfectly with the leopard-print shirt, which brings me to the second thing I love – the trendy tee. The pattern looks classy, not cheap or trashy. Finally, I love the pop of color the blue clutch brings to the outfit. I would never think of pairing the royal blue color with this look, but it’s such a fun addition! My new style goal is to add an unexpected pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit.

I have an unhealthy obsession with cupcakes. These twinkling treats from Stay At Home Chic make me want to bake up a storm. The polka dot wrappers and ruffled-edge cake stand are adorable!

Gorgeous nails! I love the nude base with gold tips and one nail with glitter! It’s simple, shimmery and stylish!

With the holidays coming up, these handmade mugs would make for great gifts! There’s nothing like a cup of peppermint hot chocolate, a cozy blanket and Christmas lights to get you into the holiday spirit! Check out Wit and Whistle for the full tutorial.

I love dogs, especially labs, so I could scroll through the puppy pages for hours. All of the adorable photos make me miss my two dogs at home in Washington. There’s nothing like a goofy, loving pup to brighten your day!

Happy Pinning!

Favorite way to spend a weekend: Relaxing in a cabin with my friends eating, reading, chatting and playing card games.

Favorite new store: Aritzia! It’s been one of my favorite places to shop for a while, but a new store just opened in University Village! It would have been dangerous for my bank account if it was there while I was in college!
