This week has been a crazy one. Work has been kicking my bootay & for some reason I still can't seem to catch up on my sleep. I have a feeling I might have mono (please no!) but I won't know until my test results come back next week. I had an outfit post that I wanted to put together for all of you pretty things, but unfortunately I have zero energy (sad face).

In other news, lately, my evenings have consisted of laying on the couch or curled up in bed pinning away on pinterest. I am pretty sure N would tell you that I am obsessed, which is probably true. Here are some of my favorite finds of the week:

+ Victoria's Blog Oh So Pretty, is one of my favorite blogs + we have become such good friends. She recently posted this beautiful image that is simple but true. ( a must down load )

+ I was exploring (a l o t) on Etsy this week & came across this cute little shop called Kari Herar. It really is one you must check out. Antler No.6986 is my favorite )

+ Madewell's new fall line is on point. & these cobalt blue heels are on my wish list when they come out in October. Penciling it in my calendar as I type. ( not kidding! )

+ I plan on making this Skinny Strawberry Sangria this weekend. ( only 75 calories, seriously. )

+ I really wanna cut my hair. like this. ( like really )

+ Fresh flowers always die so quickly, atleast for me because this girl doesn't have a green thumb. When I stumbled across these tips (10 to be exact) to help preserve those fresh blossoms I kinda yippeed out loud. ( i most certainly will be practicing my green thumb skills this weekend )

enjoy your weekend & see you back here on Monday (the start of my birthday week! yippee!)



Happy Weekend, friends! It has been a crazy week over here. Even with all these short days at work, I can't seem to get everything done that I need to do. I have been working non-stop on design projects + studying my tushy off + applying for what feels like 52398473 jobs. So to say the least, I am so happy that it is Friday  & I can kinda relax + enjoy this beautiful weather we are having! 

+ Those pillows are designed by the fabulous Roxy Owens, designer behind Society Social who I spotted over on The Every Girl. After reading her feature, I couldn't get over how absolutely amazing she is! Be sure to check it out + get to know her!

+ Matchbook Mags April Issue is out + I couldn't be more excited! I can not wait to finishing diving in this weekend. 

+ Need a smile. Check out this fun video by the darling Stephanie Sterjovski.

+ & you can find me over here, sharing my loves + love me nots!

What are your plans this weekend?
Enjoy it! xo


Hello, sweet friends! This week has been an extremely long one for THIS girl. I just can't seem to #GSD. I  make a list & maybe two things get marked off. I try to go to bed early & I can't fall asleep. I clean one area of the room & another becomes a mess. ahhh, I just can't seem to win!

Yesterday, I ended another 4 week rotation & today I am sitting down to take my FINAL end of rotation exam. I can't seem to grasp that I will be graduating in less than TWO months. EEK! I am going to be a big girl soon, big deep breath.  & it didn't help that yesterday I was one hot mess since this rotation was my absolute favorite & to top it off when I got to work the office got me a going away cake that said 'Good Luck Ashlyn' - seriously it made it that much worse!! Throughout the last four weeks, there wasn't a day that I wasn't challenged to learn something new or humbled when venturing out of my comfort zone to help counsel a patient with needs bigger than I have ever had to deal with. I really have found my calling & I am constantly praying to have the right heart + mind set for whatever opportunity comes my way. 

On another note, tomorrow I am packing up my things & heading back home for return to campus events for school until Thursday. The next week will be filled with family time, playing with my puppy Gracie & catching up with some of my best friends + I can't forget some relaxation in the mix!

What are your plans this weekend? Anything fun? 
Enjoy it loves. xx
