Friday Five: Fresh Decor

FridayFive Happy Friday, guys! I've been in a bit of a redecorating mood lately (what's new), so I've been scouring the internet for ideas of ways to add a fresh look to my space without buying all new everything. Maybe my finds will inspire new ideas from you! Here are 5 pieces I'm loving right now:

STATE WALL ART Add a personal touch to your space by showing some state pride! I've been debating adding one of these to my walls ONLY because I can't decide between getting my home state or my current state. Seriously, these unique pieces are handcrafted and the price can't be beat. Maybe I'll just get both.

TURTLE DISH A small, charming dish is the perfect way to add some color that serves a purpose. Set it on a console by the front door to toss your keys into, or put it on the counter in the bathroom as a jewelry catch-all. Oh no, it's already sold out! Here are a couple of similar ones.

TUFTED OTTOMAN I love how versatile and easy a little ottoman like this is. It's perfect for apartment living because you can easily move it around to change up the look of your room, and it doubles as a table for mini projects (or food) while you're watching tv ;)

FIG TREE I love the idea of adding some greenery to my apartment, but I'm not confident in my abilities to keep something this big alive, so I'm starting out small with a few cacti on my balcony. If this goes well, an indoor tree may be in my future!

GRAPHIC PRINT I ordered this print and just hung it on my dining room wall, and I LOVE it as a graphic element. The wall it's on faces the front door, so it's one of the first things I see when I get home after a long day. Side note-- the Etsy shop owner is doing a little reorganizing, but she'll be back up and running next week! Trust me, it's worth the wait.

Friday Five: Web Finds

Happy Friday! It's been a busy few weeks at work for me, and it's not going to let up soon, but at least tomorrow is the first official day of summer! The forecast around here is looking a little cloudy, so if you're spending it indoors (like me, who'll probably be working, catching up on laundry, and emptying my DVR), here are a few of my favorite finds from around the web this week to keep you entertained. Enjoy! xo

Rosetta Stone Level 1-3 Sets are 50% on Amazon TODAY ONLY. I'm so tempted.

I know I'm guilty of this bad habit, are you?

These shirts made me laugh.

I just ordered this and can't wait to try it out! Maybe my hair will look like the girl in the photo?

Halfway There!

It's Wednesday, which means only two more days until the weekend! If your week's been dragging like mine has, here are a few fun links to get you over the hump. DS-Phone-backgroundfinal

This waiter for the homeless really warmed my heart. Kickstarter recently passed $1 billion in pledges! These 17 things you start doing when you get an office job couldn't be more spot-on. This woman gives one of the most riveting TED talks I've heard. Are you better at science than the average American? How to kill an entire afternoon at work without actually getting anything done.
