Apologies for my late post today friends. Our sweet dog Stella has been very sick and we’ve been back and forth to the vet’s office trying to help get her on the mend (she’s there for observation now). Anyhow, I’ve been a bit distracted, but I didn’t want to leave for the weekend without sharing a few great links that I’ve been saving for you. Enjoy your weekend lovelies! xo Ez
1. The Mayan Muse color story in Issue #6 of online magazine Est, blew me away. I don’t know if I’ve seen a feature quite like it before with such a beautiful combination of found patterns and objects, paired with gorgeous fashion inspiration!
2. Are Hollyhocks the flower that are most nostalgic of your childhood? They are for me (I mentioned this once before), and after repinning this photo (via Lylo) from Better Homes & Gardens, I have reason to believe that a lot of people feel the same. Immediately pinners began relating stories from their childhood that the hollyhocks evoked. So fun!
3. I’m all thumbs when it comes to hair styling, but this Rope Bun Tutorial from Cup of Jo actually looks like something I just might be able to achieve! Want more? See the full series with 14 Hair Styling Tutorials here.
4. What do your children really want? This eye-opening article from April Perry for Power of Moms is one that I’ll be printing out to read over and over again (discovered via this equally lovely post by Frecklewonder). Not a parent? The wisdom in April’s words applies to relationships in general. You could just as easily replace “children” in the article for “spouse,” “partner,” or “friend.” A quick but powerful read!

5. I found Busting the Numbers Myth, and article by Anne the Adventurer to be incredibly thought-provoking and inspiring. As someone (like Anne) who struggled in the past with an eating disorder it really opened my eyes to the way in which we can so easily become a slave to the numbers game…both on the scale and as blog writers (a very clever comparison). Highly recommended reading! (image from Red Bird Ink)
