5 Things Friday

Happy Friday, internet!  I hope you all had a great week.  I'm looking forward to some down time with my doggies and my books, and maybe some cooking experiments!  Until then, here are five things worth sharing on the internet:

1. I think this is so awesome.  A photographer mom dresses her daughter up as inspirational women like Amelia Earhart and Coco Chanel to help her be excited about occupations besides princess.

2.  I think this table from West Elm is so pretty, but I'm wondering if the mosaic pattern could be mimicked with paint (and taped lines)?  It may be worth a shot on a thrift store or Ikea table!

3.  I finally made it back into a LOFT store last weekend, and am kicking myself for not buying these shorts.  The inseam is 4 inches, which totally suits my style and body type, and the print is cheerful and happy without being so bright that it's hard to wear.  Try them out!  (P.S. I did get this dress and it is so flattering - not too short, very slimming!)

4. For the Dallas people:  My sweet friend Maryam (blogger/mama/photographer behind the blog Pamplemousse1983) has opened a blowout salon called Pouf and the grand opening party is tomorrow.  The aesthetic of the salon is so modern and peppy, and I highly recommend that you pay them a visit.  Those ladies were able to turn my elbow length thick, straight hair into perfect beachy waves.  Check them out at!

5. I remember being intrigued by this book when it came out in 2009, and I was reminded of it again this week and now I can't wait to suggest it to my book club! Important Artifacts and Personal Property from the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion, and Jewelry is a work of fiction in the form of an auction catalog.  By looking at each listing, you'll learn the protagonists' love story - there are is not a traditional narrative.  I think it sounds so interesting and will be a fun read!

And with that, I bid you good weekend!
