Fridays are always a day of reflection for me. I like to take a moment to go over the week & my goals. Some weeks are more productive than others. Some weeks are more frustrating than others. Some weeks are better than others, plain & simple. But that's the way life works. Here are the five things I'm loving right now. 

fish tank


In honor of the release opening of Finding Dory, here's a picture of a fish. I went to Coronado this week to get some pictures of one of the resorts & this sweet fish tank was located in the lobby. He's like a fish unicorn.

bee cookies

Bee Cookies

These cookies were as cute as they were tasty. They had three designs: one with a bee, one with honeycomb, & one with a pretty little flower. They were simple & a perfect pair to a cup of Earl Grey tea. Shout out to Christine for making them!

tinkerbell cake

Tinkerbell Cake

You know what? I want to celebrate my birthday like a four-year-old. I want to genuinely enjoy the day with the people I love the most. I want to put on a pretty dress & have a fancy cake. I'm officially going to throw my own birthday party next year with no shame & no regrets. Anyhoo, how adorable is this Tinkerbell cake that Fred's mum made?

Designer Stationary

I'm all for affordable stationary. I've purchased some great things from the dollar store. This time around I opted for these three 40 page Nicole Miller notebooks. Aren't they beautiful? I love the bold & vibrant designs. 


Long-Lasting Flowers Round 2

Remember last week when I talked about my awesome long-lasting bouquet from Aldi? Well, they're still kicking! These bad boys have lasted me over two weeks! Can you believe it? I'll definitely continue buying flowers at Aldi.
