Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness at Club Nokia in LA

It’s been a rough week of no sleeping and horrible traffic. I’m starting to get to that point in the year when I’d do anything for a few rainy days spent in bed with a cup of tea and my cats, but living in SoCal in this drought might make that tough. On the bright side, I had a really amazing weekend last week! I saw my favorite musician Andrew McMahon, and I was pretty much as close as I could get to the stage without climbing over the barrier. It was fantastic! Best birthday present ever. And this weekend will be spent sleeping and (hopefully) baking. 

And these are my links to love this week (are you sensing a FALL theme yet?!)

1 | I stumbled across the blog Style Sweet CA and instantly fell in love! Tessa’s cakes are beautiful. Check out this recipe for cinnamon caramel apple cake with goat cheese frosting.

2 | Liking this cute DIY Halloween mesh wreath by Lolly & Jane

3 | Can we agree these pumpkin spice caramel apples by The Flair Exchange are amazing?

4 | And Damask Love’s DIY monster tote bag is super cute!

5 | Loving the spider web glassware almost as much as the cocktail by Sarah Hearts!

Have a happy weekend, guys!

Links to Love | RevamperateGuys, this weekend is going to be awesome! For my birthday last month, Andrew bought us tickets to see my favorite musical artist Andrew McMahon in his newest band, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, and it’s finally happening tomorrow night. It’s going to be amazing and I couldn’t be more excited! Sorry for fangirling, but I just can’t help it…check out my Instagram to follow along in my excitement (also for more cat photos). 

Oh, and here are my links to love this week:

Happy Friday! The weeks have been flying by lately, and I can’t even believe it’s already the end of September. It’s been a pretty quiet week here, and I’m feeling really thankful for that. Tomorrow, I’m going to a hand lettering class with Andrew’s cousin, and I’m seriously geeking out over it because I’ve always wanted to learn hand lettering/calligraphy. Hopefully I can use what I learn to make some fun projects in the future!

Here are my links to love this week:

1 | Check out my recipe for apple pie dippers with bourbon caramel sauce over on RecipeChatter! 

2 | StudioDIY does it again! See her DIY Lisa Frank costumes for awesome Halloween inspiration.

Hello Friday! After a weird week of weather and a big event at work, I’m exhausted and can’t wait to catch up on sleep this weekend. I’m headed to San Diego to visit family for the first time since July, which feels like FORever ago! And I’m really just looking forward to some downtime and relaxation with the fam, plus a pedicure, of course. 

These are my favorite links to love this week:

2 | This funfetti fudge recipe over on Studio DIY looks, well, FUN!

In line for the Santa Monica ferris wheel for my birthday last weekend!

This week I am incredibly happy because (*drum roll*) we bought our plane tickets to Florida this January! Andrew and I as well as a few of his family members are headed to Panama City Beach for his sister’s wedding, and I am SO excited. I’ve never been to Florida before and we’re renting an amazing vacation house right by the beach. Is it January yet?!

Other than that, I am thankful for another Friday because these 5:30am wake-up calls are killing me as quickly as this 90+ degree heat. I thought I lived in Southern California? Here’s to hoping fall brings cooler temperatures! We’re also going to Knott’s Berry Farm tomorrow to celebrate Andrew’s best friend’s birthday, and I haven’t been in years, so I think it’s going to be a fun weekend! 

Have a happy weekend! Here are my favorite links to love this week:

1 | Loving this DIY tote bag made from a throw pillow by Damask Love!

2 | You can never go wrong with mini emoji piñata! See the tutorial on I Spy DIY.

3 | These peachy orange marmalade cupcakes by Sprinkle Bakes look absolutely incredible!

4 | Also, check out this cool DIY beaded plant hanger by The Crafted Sparrow.

5 | Or if you want something on the healthier side, try these white chocolate cranberry granola bars by Beyond Frosting.

A photo from my birthday last year!

You have no idea how happy I am that today is Friday! Two reasons: tomorrow is my birthday AND it’s a three day weekend. BONUS! I have lots of sleep to catch up on this weekend, and my plans include cat cuddling and Pinterest. Oh, and Andrew is taking me to the Santa Monica pier (my first time!) and we’re renting a boat. It’ll be a fun new adventure for us here in LA. Really though, I’m just happy to not have to wake up at 5:30 for a full three days. 

If anyone needs me, I’ll just be over here sleeping. Have a great weekend! 

Here are my links to love this week:

1 | How cute is this DIY braided camera strap by Almost Makes Perfect?!

2 | Browned butter cinnamon swirl biscuits. Do I need to say more? See the recipe on Bethcakes!

3 | This no-sew pencil case over on I Spy DIY also looks like a fun project.

4 | This pineapple upside down cheesecake cake by The Merchant Baker looks like the perfect end-of-summer dessert!

5 | Just wow. Pastel cotton candy cream soda. Aww, Sam does it again!

K bye!

Another fav from our trip to Catalina!

FriYAY! I’m feeling super tired today and so ready for the weekend. This LA traffic is really getting to me and, more importantly, it’s getting to my work ethic. BUT I’m also excited because my birthday is only one week away! Where does the time go? I’ll be 24 next week and I’m just not ready to face that yet. Anyone know of a good song about being 24? You know, Taylor Swift had “22” and Blink-182 had “What’s My Age Again?” about being 23. Now I need a song about being 24….

Anyway, here are my favorite links to love this weekend:

1 | Cute way to stay organized with this DIY braided rope basket on Crafts Unleashed!

2 | This iced matcha coconut latte by Pastry Affair looks wonderfully refreshing.

3 | Loving how colorful this wall weaving is by The House That Lars Built!

4 | These Tetris cookies by Sugar & Cloth are my new favorite thing.

5 | I’ll take 100 of these red velvet cheesecake brownie bites by Just a Taste…

Have a happy weekend! Here’s to hoping it lasts as long as possible…

Carnival Cruises | Revamperate

I had SO much fun on our cruise last week! Photo from Catalina.

It’s been quite a week to say the least…Andrew and I are both recovering from a cold, although he got hit way harder than I did. It was also my first week working in a new office under new leadership, which doubled my daily commute to and from work (over an hour each way!), so I’m feeling the fatigue set in after a busy week. Thank you, Friday…Andrew starts law school on Monday, so he’ll be spending the weekend studying up on his first assignments while I work around him like a busy little bee. Sorry in advance, babe! 

Here are my favorite links to love this week:

1 | Loving how colorful these marble dipped mugs by The Sweetest Occasion are! 

2 | I can’t wait to try one of these homemade clay mask recipes by Hello Natural…

3 | This lemon meringue pie by Truffles and Trends is almost too beautiful to eat (almost!)

4 | These DIY temporary tattoos by The Crafted Life are adors! 

5 | Last but not least, check out this cute pineapple nail art by Burkatron
