Spring has sprung and good things are cropping up everywhere.

I’ve officially booked each and every place where we’ll be staying on our trip to Ireland, tackled some serious 2-minute tasks I’ve been putting off for a while, and I dare say you guys (close your ears if you can’t stand a good cliche) that it really is darkest before the dawn. Maybe it’s just the weather, but things are looking up… and I’m looking forward to a nice long weekend and a very short list of to-dos.

Happy Friday! Any big plans on your end?


Eye this lovely lunch and every single recipe included in it.

Buy eeeeeverything from Kinfolk’s new venture, Ouur.

Make a big, beautiful eucalyptus chandelier.

Bake lots of things with rhubarb, especially this rhubarb-raspberry tart.


How I haven’t come across this until now I don’t know, but Theo and Beau you guys? I’m going to explode from the cuteness.

A really great post on sponsorships that has me rethinking my use of hashtags ever. Hmm.

Also, Elsie & Emma’s new e-course looks pretty fantastic. (Did I ever tell you I took one of Elsie’s old e-courses way back when I started this blog? That one’s long gone now, but if it’s any indication I’m sure this one is amazing.)

    Ooh that tart looks delicious, and going into a weekend with a short to-do list is the BEST – enjoy!

    I am already so jealous of your Ireland trip. I bet it’s going to be spectacular! I did have some plans, but I’m afraid they might have to be postponed as I have been battling a migraine all week…

    that a beautiful mess post on sponsorships really caught my eye too. It’s amazing how far those guys have come in building a business out of their blog. Definitely gave me loads to think about as well.
