Weekly Roundup 21/52

Hey guys! It took me foreeeeever to get this week's links compiled because I was just loving everything on the internet! Bad news for me, I spent way too many hours of my life surfing the web. Good news for you, you are in for some tasty treats, my friends. Let's dig in!

1  While we're on the topic of tasty treats, how amazing do ice cream-filled doughnut holes sound?! I can't even eat them (I'm gluten-free) but still I've been thinking about them non-stop. Gluten-friendly pals, do me a favor: make and eat these in my honor and tell me all about it. (Tasty on BuzzFeed)  |  2  I really loved this post on Broad City's costume designer, Staci Greenbaum. I mean, obviously I love the show, but for those interested it also gives great insight into breaking into the costume biz. (Fashionista)

 

3  How gorgeous are these rainbow marbled wood slats?! I'm not even sure I knew something like these existed, but now that I've seen this mesmerizing behind-the-scenes post, my brain's pretty much exploded forever. (decor8)  |  4  I love these clever film-themed flat lay posters from Jordan Bolton Design as super-affordable (and super-cool) wall art. Other pieces include Moonrise Kingdon, The Royal Tenenbaums, Amelie, and more. (Etsy)

 

5  I love that all Adele has to do is sway a little while she sings and it's completely captivating (of course, wearing a gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana gown and having the best face in town helps, too). Seriously though, isn't this video great?

And more...

Have you seen the #QueenofTumbling? Just...whoa.

This is super cute: adults explaining Tinder to kids.

How to write a wedding speech in 10 minutes or less.

Loving this moth pin and this metallic trench.

NEED these shoes.

And I never thought I would want a post-dorm-room mini fridge, but this one is seriously cool.

For bloggers, a list of game-changing blog and biz tools and ideas for beating burnout.

Stella & Dot is having a crazy good sale this week and they're offering Dot Dollars! I've got a trunk show open if you want to shop my link. My favorite sale pieces are these earrings and this necklace. What are yours?

 

What links are you loving this week?

Work and Life Goals for November + A Little Blog Update

That's a close up pic of the tree costume that my co-designer, Shiree Houf, and I designed for Highball Halloween (photo by T. A. Mueller Photography) . We were actually so busy working on this in October that I never set any official goals for the month other than "finish Highball collection" and "shower as much as possible." This season gets so intense for me that I actually didn't even really accomplish any of my September goals except the silliest: Learn a rap song on piano. (Enjoy friends...)      

Not the best performance of my life but a cool party trick, nonetheless. :)

September goals aside, I did make headway in a few other areas in the past two months. Notice my new pic in the sidebar, taken by the wonderful Alexa of Alexa Marie Photography. If you click through I also have a new About page and another profile pic featured there.

Alexa was great to work with because I am quite possibly the least photogenic person on Earth. And I'm not just being hard on myself, I simply have never been able to do it well. At all. I've got the half-smirk selfie thing down, but let me tell you, it takes some real camera magic to get a professional, smiling picture of this face. And one that I actually like to boot. That's a real feat. So I really just have to give a big thanks to Alexa for her camera wizardry. And if you happen to be in the market for a photo session, I strongly suggest booking with her! You can check out her website or facebook page for more info.

And now onto this month's goals! Because I've been coasting a little on the organized goal front, some of these are going to look pretty familiar. I've got a few new goals and few I STILL haven't conquered (but will never give up on!). Here are the things taking priority for me this month...

Goals-November-2015

A few of these things are long-standing goals of mine so I'm really trying to light a fire inside of myself to finally get them done!

Do you have any long-standing goals that you struggle with?

What things are you working on this month?

Let's talk goal-conquering in the comments! :)
