Curated Links

photo from Made In Pretoria
I am currently obsessed with the blog of DIY goddess Anna Banana at Made In Pretoria. That is her photo above. Check out her blog for everything from jewelry to cupcakes to fake Louboutins - she is fearless in her craftiness!

I am bonkers over the Original London Underground coat racks featured by Will over at Bright Bazaar . I love anything that combines re-purposing and organization. Plus, Will's blog is full of happiness and light.

Have you guys seen the photo shoot Jamie at From Me To You did with Kelly Framel for Kelly Wearstler's clothing line?! It's fabulous times three, which is a lot of fabulous. (2) x Kelly + Jamie = Lot of Fabulous.

I am a hopeless romantic - I buried this part of myself when I was in my 20's trying to be a standoffish cool person, but the truth is I love LOVE and, therefore, love celebrations of love and, therefore, love weddings. I have already married my husband twice and if he asks, I'll do it again. I also love anything related to 'the story behind the story'. So, when I found the Moment Junkie, well I knew I had found my people. It's the wedding photographer images that don't necessarily make the album, but are the moments that tell the story behind the scenes. It's wonderful and I hope you enjoy it.

And since I can't send you guys any link love without including something to chow on, I've included the Guilty Kitchen's Avocado Cilantro dressing via Pinterest. I have not made this yet, so I'm not giving a full endorsement, but it includes my two favorite things ever in the food department, so I'm not sure how it could go wrong.

Lastly, I've got Spring on my mind and while my head is ready, I'm pretty sure my body is nowhere close. I'm talking about a good skin sloughing people. I found two lemony do-it-yourself body scrub recipes, so now I just have to decide whether I want to go salty with Mrs. Lilien's, or sweet via Momtastic.

Yesterday, I went to the V&A Reading Rooms in London for a London Bloggers meet up. It was good to see my friends again and catch up with everyone. It was also good to just be in London again. I no longer live in fear of the underground or any type of public transportation. I did not even map out my route and I only accidentally surfaced once!! (Embankment is a confusing station). I may have become overconfident by the end of the day, when I got on my train and realized I had not even checked to see if it stopped at my station. I had to humbly disembark to check the boards, but all in all, I have jumped a major hurdle in my effort to spend more time exploring London. Stoked. I also did some whirlwind bargain shopping at Zara where I drastically expanded my wardrobe in 20 minutes for £35. I am a shopping ninja.

I hope you all had a great weekend!
