The sun is shinning, it’s finally warm out, and I am planning on spending the weekend outside with my family. Life is good. I’ve been really busy lately, and I am looking forward to having a couple of days off from the weekly schedule. Let me tell you, kids’ activities are time consuming and my son isn’t even a year old yet! Over the weekend, it’s less about making sure my son is on the perfect schedule and more about having fun. With the weather getting nicer, there will be so much more we can do outside. I’d love to hear from my mom readers out there. What do you like to do with your kids on the weekends? Speaking about motherhood and activities, I have a lot less time for me. However, in the evenings, when Cooper is asleep, I get more time for myself. I spend a lot of it on my computer reacquainting myself with the outside world. So, without further ado, let’s talk about the links I discovered this week. Have a great weekend and drop by again soon for what’s new on the blog.
INSPIRATION: A Sparkle Factor’s spring style has been on fire and I’m obsessed lately. I love everything she has been wearing. This post for instance takes two trends I want to try: fringe and off the shoulder, and the results are fabulous.
GOOD EATS: I may not go out to dinner as often as I would like but, when I do, I want to make sure it’s great. There are no guarantees in life, but when you go to a David Chang restaurant, you know you’re in good hands. Have any of you tried his new restaurant, Momofuku Nishi? It’s high on my list and I can’t wait to try it.
BOOK CLUB: Bad news, hockey playoffs have started. This means about two months of my husband monopolizing the TV. It’s actually a good thing because there has been nothing on that interests me. After reading Vogue’s list of favorite books for spring, I have decided to make reading my new nightly activity.
SPRING FLOWERS: I’ve always wanted to be the kind of woman who has fresh flowers in her home. I buy them and throw them in a vase, but it never looks great. Then they die so fast, it just doesn’t seem worth it. I have decided to seek out some help. Hopefully Lauren Conrad can teach me the right tricks to a beautiful floral arrangement.
HASHTAG GOALS: Now that I am a mom, I want more than ever to become a good baker. My mom is one of the best and it’s something I want to be able to perfect. I love this funfetti cookie recipe from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I plan on trying them this weekend and I hope that it’ll make me a hit at my next play date.
PIN OF THE WEEK: I am always looking for a new podcast to listen to and this list from The Style Sprinter of the best fashion and beauty podcasts out there is exactly what I need! Check it out and hopefully it’ll speak to you.
