Happy Friday, pals! Ever since the New Year's I've been focusing a lot on simplifying my life. Part of that has been focusing what I do in this space. One of the things I've realized if that, as much as I might love the "fluff" pieces, like this series, I needed to shift the focus a little bit so I can have more energy for my design work. So, unlike in the past, I will be posting these links roundups every other week instead of weekly and will be alternating them on Fridays with my Friday Vibes series. So the names and schedules are changing slightly, but it's basically all the same. It's just a way to simplify my content while still keeping two of my favorite series.
So, now that you're clued into the over workings of a blogger's brain, let's focus on the fact that two weeks of links provides twice as much great content to choose from and share. Now let's dig into the recent favorites!
1 I'm loving these DIY boots, a nod to Dior's bug-embellished tulle moment last fall. The process is super simple and the bug/velvet combo makes me really happy. (Honestly WTF) | 2 I always think it's cool to see how artists work, and this tour of Katherine Zener's studio gives a great glimpse into how the designer makes her space work for her innovative menswear accessories line. (Design Sponge)
3 I was so excited to see that one of my favorite designers, Justina Blakeney, just launched a furniture collection with Selamat. The Ida Mirror and Vela Pendants are among my favorites, but if I'm being honest, I love every piece. (The Jungalow) | 4 Can you believe this bouquet sculpture from artist Ann Carrington is made from spoons? Using just dull metallic utensils she's able to create pieces so realistic and detailed you'd almost think they're painted flowers. (Bored Panda)
5 I finally saw La La Land a couple of weeks back, and when I got home I immediately saw this and thought it was pretty hilarious. If you've seen La La Land, I'm dying to hear what you thought. I loved it more than words can adequately express, but I promise I won't throw a chair if you're Team Aziz. ;)
