10 Summer Favorites

1 // FAVORITE TV
I'm torn between sadness and happiness for the end of Friday Night Lights. We just got into the series this summer and finished all 5 seasons in under a month! I wish it wasn't over but at least they were all on Netflix by the time we found this treasure because no commercials!

2 // FAVORITE RECIPE
As a self-proclaimed bad cook, I'm happy to wash the dishes for my honey while he makes magic happen in the kitchen. This new recipe has been a summer favorite around our house and the friends we shared it with.

3 // FAVORITE BOOK
What started out as a summer-internship-assignment turned into a favorite read! I find myself applying the theories to every day situations and sharing the fun anecdotes with everyone who will listen. It's an oldy but a goody if you want to learn about trends in a changing world.

4 // FAVORITE BLOGGER
Merrick is my new favorite (imaginary) girlfriend. I've been following her blog ever since it was a little site to share her amazing art skills. Now she's wowing the world with her refashion tutorials that inspired my craze this month. You go girl!

5 // FAVORITE PRINT
This quote. It is currently summing up my and my husband's lives right now. Sometimes we have late night talks about throwing reliable jobs out the window and living off our hobbies as we travel the world. Someday my friends, someday.

6 // FAVORITE DIY
I've learned after years of DIYing that the best projects aren't forced. One afternoon I found myself with an ugly giant pickle jar and some gold leaf in my hands. The inspiration simply appeared and now I am in love with these beauties. Everyone needs one in their home!

7 // FAVORITE SHOES
Have. Not. Left. My. Feet. At all this summer. No joke. The heel came off so I glued it back on. The metal plate came unscrewed so I tied it on with string. They're still my go-to shoes and at under $18 I can afford to trash them.


8 // FAVORITE PURCHASE
This is my new baby. My favorite man surprised me by trying to act like he'd ordered a book in the mail. He's horrible at keeping secrets. It's taking some getting-used-to but I love the crisp focus and the soft, beautiful background it creates.

9 // FAVORITE MAKEUP
For a girl with hereditary dark under eyes, this makeup gives me hope.

10 // FAVORITE ARTIST
The colors. The composition. I need this painting above my nomadic couch and I need it now. I love abstract artists because they just get me. Chaos and color means a happy blogger.

What have you been loving this summer? Ready for the transition to fall?
