TGIF! Even though this was a short work week, it somehow still felt long (probably due to trying to cram 5 days of work into only 4!). Nevertheless, the weekend is finally here, and I am more than ready for it. Here are the 5 things I’m loving this week:
Memorial Day happenings
NYC was blessed with gorgeous weather on Monday, so what better way to celebrate than with a leisurely picnic? A group of friends and I met up in Central Park with our blankets, snacks, and a football to toss around. It was a perfectly loungey afternoon…if only all Mondays could be so lovely!
I know I’m late to the party on this one, so please let me know…who else is a fan of Poshmark? For other newbies like me, Poshmark is an app where you can buy and sell gently used clothing and accessories. There are some really fantastic finds on there! I’ve been trying to purge my closet but it’s hard to part with certain expensive items, so this is a great way to make a little cash while clearing out some room in my little studio. I’ve only just started exploring the site and have slowly added a few things to my closet, so any pro tips would be very welcome! You can find my closet on Poshmark at @SequinB and M’s closet at @Mosses. Also, if you sign up using referral code PHHCH, you and I will each receive a $5 credit - so get shopping!
Trader Joe's Goat Cheese
I’ve never been shy about my love for Trader Joe’s, and it seems like there is always some brilliant product to discover each time I go! T and I have recently started cooking more (and therefore, started making more frequent Trader Joe’s runs), and we came across this yummy cheese. Gals, I’m telling you, it is transformative and a welcome addition to practically every dish! It’s been a particular hit in our homemade pizzas and quesadillas. Do yourselves a favor and drop this in your cart the next time you’re hitting up TJs – I promise, you won’t regret it!
DIY Ikea Hacks
I’ve been yearning for some new craft projects lately and feeling drawn to furniture, so of course I’ve been stalking Pinterest for inspiration. I swear, some of these transformations are simply magical – I’m not quite sure yet how I’ll recreate or put my own spin on them, but here are a few of my favorites:
And speaking of home décor, I’ve been intrigued by this succulent arrangement and am contemplating making my own. I really love the rustic feel of the succulents mashed up with the gold, gem-shaped vessel! Between this and the DIY projects, I’m definitely starting to settle into some summer nesting (and plan to balance it all out with lots of fun warm weather soirees and excursions, of course!).
May your weekends be filled with sunshine and fun!
