Friday's Worthy Links



I just can't come to terms with the fact that summer is ending.  It went by wayyyy too quickly for me, and I can't believe September is around the corner.   How did that happen?  I don't feel like I consumed enough margaritas or got enough pool time in.  Nonetheless, in Houston you can lay out well through the beginning of October- so maybe it's time I make up for that.  Any big plans for the weekend?  The highlights for me will be a revolution ride at Define Body dedicated to all hip-hop and rap music on Saturday afternoon, and Lindsay coming to town for work on Sunday.  

Before signing off, here are my favorite tidbits from around the web this week:

-Need a good laugh?  I literally died watching 22 People Who Definitely Should Have Not Taken the Ice Bucket Challenge.  I am sure you are as tired as I am of seeing a million people douse themselves in water on your Facebook feed.  Nonetheless, it's for a wonderful cause, as demonstrated by this video.

- Seeing the movie trailer for Wild has me itching to read Cheryl Strayed's memoir.  The movie, starring Reese Witherspoon, looks incredible (in all honesty, I watched the trailer 5-6 times), and I have heard the book is fabulous.  

-As you all know, coffee table books are "my thing."  I can never have enough of them, and am constantly flipping through my collection for design inspiration, interior details, and a fresh perspective.  I am always searching for new ones, as it can often seem like I already have them all!  Kelly Wearstler's Library features a cultivated selection of her "must-have" titles, from incredible photography to rare, out-of-print gems.  

-Admittedly, I don't normally find much to get excited about at West Elm.  But lately, I feel like they're killing it with their lighting collection.  I'm obsessed with these mid-century pendant lights and this deco marble table lamp

-Gaby of The Vault Files shared her home on The Glitter Guide this week.  The gallery wall in her bathroom is TDF, and the photos of her are stunning.  I finally got to meet Gaby this past April at the Reward Style Conference in Dallas!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
