Weekly Favorites



I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend! I spent yesterday celebrating and doing some shopping for my birthday in Dallas and had the most delicious lunch at Mariposa in Neiman Marcus. Before lunch they brought out hot popovers and consumme- such a nice and old fashioned birthday surprise. My favorite thing of all though was the huge sale at J. Crew. If you haven't heard, they're having 30% off all sale items (using code MUSTHAVE online), and I picked up a pair of Cafe Capris and a few No. 2 Pencil skirts for dirt cheap. A happy birthday indeed!

Here are my favorite things that happened in the online world this week. 

-If you've been following along with The Corner Apartment these past few weeks you'll know that I am really into homemade popsicles right now. The Everygirl (a daily must-read if you've never heard of it) did a few more elaborate recipes for summer pops that I can't wait to try with my new Zoku Ice Pop Maker (more on this later!).

-If you're a regular Matchbook Mag reader like me then you'll recognize these ever-so-chic illustrations from EmmaKisstina. Julie from Julie Leah featured some of her celeb-inspired prints and is hosting a giveaway next week!

-A peak into the colorful world of Jonathan Adler (loving this) over at MadeByGirl has me wishing he could style my new apartment.

-An interview with Sarah Brown, the beauty director at Vogue from Into the Gloss. If you're remotely interested in beauty, magazines, or journalism, this is a really entertaining read.

-A fun take on food, illustration and simplicity over at Paper Fashion.

-Atlantic-Pacific always combines colors and patterns perfectly. This little number is no exception!

I hope everyone relaxes with what remains of the weekend- and try to stay out of the heat!

  9. Hi Elizabeth! Just stumbled on your blog and am SO glad I did. I saw a comment of yours on The Every Girl (new fave site!) on the coffee talk college do-over post. I saw you were one of the few fellow commenters who was also still in school. Your blog is similar to my own! I feel like most of the blogs I follow are of girls in their late twenties and it's nice to find a kindred blogger spirit like yourself. Anyway, I too am obsessed with NM's popovers. To. Die. For. I love J. Crew and took full advantage of this sale and I'm an avid Atlantic-Pacific follower. All of your links were fabulous and I can't wait to hop on board of the corner apartment. I'd love for you to follow me along at Bridget's Own Diary. Best, Molly
