Have a look at this quick little design bit from Cleveland graphic designer (and friend) Garrett Haas.
Speaking of "glass half full" . . .
+ More reasons why Pittsburgh rules. Also, why did people stop saying that word? One of my faves—especially when spelled with a "z". You know, like . . . RULEZ. Awesome.
+ Totally not a germophobe, but these fun facts are pretty gross.
+ Sayyyyyyyy whaaaaaaaaaaat?
+ New makeup brushes from MAC that look like a toothbrush. I'm intrigued.
+ The CUTEST thing ever. Trying to cuddle up with these two.
+ Really digging Need Supply's gift set up.
+ A DIY I must attempt. Plus, I'm overdue for a trip to the mothership, IKKKEAAAAAAAA!
+ The happiest hours in Cleveland.
+ This story has been all over the internet, but I'm still sharing it because I think it is magical, heartwarming, uplifting, joyful, hopeful and the list continues. Plus, my brother was a HUGE batman fan growing up (he still is), so it strikes a special chord in this heart of mine.
+ Okay, so there were a lot of super cute things on the internet this week but this is the last one I'll share with you. I have given this video at least 15+ views and I laugh equally as hard every time.
+ A little bit of Lucius for you on this Monday afternoon.
+ I can get down with this trend.
+ Reminding myself of these words constantly.
I've been eyeing up a crazy number of options for a new living room floor lamp lately and I finally feel like I've visited enough website lighting sections to make a tight edit. These are the four lamps that I've been starring at/obsessing over most.
Based on the needs of my space, I think I may have it narrowed down even further. I'm leaning towards numbers two & three as I think a simple black silhouette will work best aesthetically. Now onto overanalyzing the details in these two floor lamps to make my final pick.
Things I like about each:
#2: Its delicate/airy legs and subtle detail in the shade.
#3: Its clean lines, "weight" and more masculine silhouette.
What's your vote?
^ For those of you feeling like you're losing the Monday battle because I sure am . . .
And a little 5:00 treat:
+ A helpful reminder for the upcoming holidays: What's poisonous for your pets. It's no secret my pups will be eating table scraps—in moderation, of course. Don't send me hate mail about endangering my animal's health. These pups live like king and queen.
+ Mom, quit calling me "coo-coo" and read this.
+ Shopping malls. In the 80s. 'Nuff said.
+ One thing I simply can't live without during the fall/winter months is candles. And of course, ones that actually make your space smell good and not like a pine-scented cab are always a bonus. I've never been a huge fan of floral/perfumey/feminine scents, so when I stumbled upon this round up from a dude featuring his five favorite (masculine) candle scents I was prettttttty pleased. Thanks, In Good Company!
+ If this story doesn't warm your heart, I don't know what will! Happy Veterans Day!
+ This place is for sale in Stockholm. Who's buying it? I'm coming to visit.
+ In search of a minimalist graphic print? Cul-de-sac's got yo back!
+ This post features an amazing pasta recipe and teaches you how to properly pronounce "gnocci." It's a win-win read!
