Weekend notes

Image via

1) Reading Victoria's words on being stuck was incredibly helpful and refreshing. I can see this new pattern emerging in the world of blogging, where people finally let go of their picture-perfect internet personas, and let us get a peek into the parts of their lives that aren't all about cupcakes, bubbly and engagement rings. It feels good to be real for change. (via Vmac + Cheese)

2) I'm not usually one to swoon over cute cats, but this, my friends, this is on a whole different level. All the Sherlock fans will understand. (via Fox in the Pine)

3) Donut Monte Cristo sliders. Do I need to say more? (via Jelly Toast)

4) Jordan has new diy striped business cards and I'm obsessed. Sometimes, a simple project is always the most stunning! (via Oh happy day)

5) I don't know how she does it, but Wendy always looks flawless. Always. (via Wendy's Lookbook)

6) After a rather horrific store-bought donut experience (imagine flies rising in the air when you pick your donut from a basket. I told you, horrific.), I've been on a hunt for a perfect baked homemade donut recipe. This one is next on my list. (via Sally's baking addiction)

7) I'm most definitely bookmarking this perfect afternoon tea guide for my next trip to London. (via Wish wish wish)

8) My obsession with color pink has no boundaries, and it comes as no surprise that I'm head over heel in love with this pink outfit. And that bag? Simply awesome. (via Hallie Daily)

9) I'll be making these shortbread cookies for Valentine's Day for sure. Time to find my cookie stamp again! (via Bakingdom)

    Yes, Holly, it was Sally's recipe. However, they are best eaten the day they're made. They became too moist overnight. I'm still on the hunt for THE perfect recipe :)

  5. those donut monte! yum. i haven't had a monte cristo in ages.

However, don't bother leaving any "Follow me!" comments that you copy & paste on dozens of blogs at a time and which show that you have absolutely no interest in my blog. I will follow your blog if I love it, not because you ordered me to do it.
