hi! hey there! how is your holiday time treating you?
this image about sums up my mood these days, comfort food, sleeping in, hibernating game strong. i've been lucky enough to have time off from work and with that, i've been writing, moving slow on purpose and luxuriating in hours of free time. sometimes that's what it's all about.

i hope that you are getting some rest and indulgent time to yourself this holiday season. and it's friday saturday so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

ok, this sofa needs to be MINE. plus love her design style.

crushing on these party dresses (ahem, hello new years eve!)

have a fun weekend!

what are you up to this weekend? anything fun?
i've been slow to the take on the holiday vibe. i feel like i've been kicking back thinking i have all kinds of time. but last night it hit me. i realized that this weekend i need to snap to and dive in! so i'll be heading out, trying to avoid the mall at all costs, in search of a few special gifts.

next year i'd love to try something different. pick towns or cities i'm not familiar with in my state. head to one a day at a time and only shop small and local. doesn't that sound fun? i've also planned a sneaky weekend here this month. i had to. cause...why not.

whatever you do, wherever you go this weekend, enjoy the heck out of yourself. and it's friday saturday so some fun finds from around the world wide web:

veeeeery into leopard prints this year for some reason. with that, reeeeeally loving this free people coat.

completely mad for these earrings.

want one of everything from this online shop.

a fun & thoughtful christmas gift idea (and inexpensive to boot!).

happy sunday!

what are you up to this weekend? anything fun?
i'm trying to quell my panic at the nearness of the holidays. to head it off, i've started decorating super early, like last weekend, garland, sparkly strings and lights...trying to dive straight into the sensations of winter and all that goes with it. it feels pretty good actually! this weekend i've been shopping a tiny bit, grabbing ingredients to make these beauties for thanksgiving and sitting around in my slippers writing (the best!).

wherever you go, whatever you do, have a cozy happy sunday! & some fun finds from around the world wide web:
