Weekend Link Love

Ah, the weekend. What used to be reserved for sleeping in, brunching, catching up on TV and just generally being a bum has turned into a frenzied how-can-I-get-everything-done time for me. While most people go out on the weekends, I prefer to see friends and attend events during the week when my day has already been shot by work and I'm in Manhattan, easily accessible to anyone available for the evening. Weekends, then, become my time to run errands and get everything else done that I didn't have time for during the week—and often, those plans are interrupted. This morning I'd planned to get up at a decent hour, make some breakfast & coffee, write this post, and clean around my apartment until I need to leave for other plans in the afternoon. 

Instead, I overslept a bit, and shortly after I got up, the radiators in my apartment started to spew water in three different rooms, flooding the apartment downstairs in the process. Happy Saturday, right? Two hours later, I finally ate some food and got ready for the day, only to find that the subway wasn't running where I needed it to. As much as I despise winter and all the cold that comes with, I'm actually looking forward to some crummy-weather weekends where I'll have good reason not to leave my apartment for a full 48 hours. And on that note, if you're being a bum this weekend, I'm sharing a few of my favorite things from around the web to keep you entertained.

My elephant obsession absolutely extends to this cute match strike from Julia's shop!

Sleek metal details on shoes are becoming my new favorite thing-like these Zara pumps.

Should you ever work for free as a blogger?

The best exchange I've seen on social media in a long, long time (maybe ever!).

Have you seen this subway-prank video yet? (Hint: it's super sweet!)

If you haven't heard about this little boy's Make-A-Wish yet, you've been living under a rock. Also, it'll probably make you cry...& maybe restore your faith in humanity.

Lulu Frost SS 2014...I'll take one of each, please!

This Julia Kostreva marble print is the background on my work computer. Now, I want it for my phone, too!

Mercury was in f*cking retrograde.

Cinnamon Brioche Chocolate Chip French Toast Muffins with Coconut Streusel. (Get in my belly.)

I shot an entire roll of film on this old cabin in Maryland last weekend. Nervously excited to see how it turned out!

Beautiful post-rain photos.

In love with this leather-trimmed hoodie.
