HOPES & DREAMS | Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites!!!

Okay, I’m a little overly excited to be back here slapping up some pretty things that I want, want, neeeed!

I want this backpack so much it hurts. Actually, I want it for Little Miss because an 8 month old totally needs a full size backpack. Totally.

Also, this company has some crazy cute school/office contraptions for the organization obsessed. Me.

There is no shame in my IKEA game. I can’t get enough high gloss white “wood”, borderline-boring simple straight lines, low prices and exciting “customizations” in form of Internet DIY hacks galore. And how about this new desk?! This anti-MALM piece {sigh, RIP} stands out on it’s own with an industrial modern farmhouse feel. They must have Fixer Upper streaming in Sweeden….


Somehow Josh and I have managed to only purchase 3 new pieces of furniture since buying and moving into our current home. And one of those was a crib, so does that really count? Marking our fourth piece, is this sleek set of armchairs. {A set counts as one purchase. It helps with my justifications, go with me here} Blogger Anissa of HouseSeven slips this set of chairs into her Instagram posts fairly often {that’s her pic above}. Their light wood base and washed out linen upholstery effortlessly fall in line with many design styles. Plus they are comfortable and a great price. Now I just need some cushy pillows for mine!

For, gosh, almost a year now, Studio McGee has been my most searched instagram page. I’m always rushing over to see what they have been up to lately – and they never everrrr dissappoint. Well, after getting the N-O from a TV network {they like each other too much and happiness just doesn’t make for good TV}, they decided to try their hand at making their own online episodes. And guys, they KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK. The production is flawless, they are adorable on camera, the decorating tips are GOLD and their designs represent such timeless beauty. Go catch up now and stay tuned to their instagram and blog for new episodes!

I have absolutely NO SHOT in truly convincing myself or my husband to buy yet another rug. But! But!!! If I did – this would be in Little Miss’ nursery oh-so-fast! Those colors are so precious and the pattern + tassels are very fun, funky and right-now! World Market has been killing it lately and it’s taking all I’ve got to stay away. Seriously, I can’t just link to this one rug, I must link to all of them, ALL THE RUGS! Such an incredible selection!!! Ahhh

Off to shop! JK…. But I do have an IKEA trip planned for this weekend!
