the friday edit

Seriously, is there a Friday about which I’ve been this excited? Not for a long time… what a week! Drywall is IN here at the house, which means the renovation is moving along. Sometimes I go into the bedroom just to pet them. My birthday is tomorrow, but we might spend the day painting the room simply because I want to be in it already!

Also, Seattle friends, mark your calendars because one of my absolute favorite brands, Cuyana, is in town and hosting an essential tour! You can find out more here + RSVP. I wish I could be there, but I’ll be in London. My girl Kasey from Turntable Kitchen will be curating the music, so be sure to stop by!

Some good reads this week:

Loving these empowering buttons from Second Floor Flat.

I’m calling it right now: the saddle bag is the It Bag of 2017.

Seeing this white paneled ceiling from Emily Henderson is giving me all of the feelings and hope for my bedroom renovation.

I’m in the middle of reading this right now and want you guys to read it, too!

My friend Julie launched her pottery shop, Plant Provisions, and it’s just too pretty for words.

I’m sort of loving coleslaw lately, so this coconut quinoa coleslaw recipe sounds perfect.

You should definitely try these 5 spring beauty trends!

    We are so excited for this event! But sad we’ll be missing you — have the best time in London!

    Also, that coleslaw recipe sounds incredible…adding it to next week’s menu immediately.
