Gelly Roll Pens (new obsession, friends.  if you like inky pens, you need to get these), bright colored jeans + all things bright colored are my fave this week.  I thought I’d snap a quick picture.  There is just something about grouping things together that makes me happy.

This week I’ve been busy working on project + all things designy.  I have to say, I always welcome the weekend with open arms. Don’t you?  Waking up a wee bit later.  Lingering with your coffee in hand.  Taking walks.  Going out to eat  which = ‘s no cooking (win / win).  These are all good and simple things.

Ok, but what I really want to tell you about is a new series I’m starting this Monday, called Monday Mess.  I’m going to be featuring messes.  Yes, you’ve heard me right.  I want to explore the idea of a beautiful mess and a lived in home.  I’m not going to be showcasing someones entire dirty room but rather corners, desks, counters, sections and so on that may be a bit cluttered, with life, that is.  Not only will it be a fun visual but it will also be a lively conversation on how we all live, organization styles (including tips + tricks) and interesting ideas.  I think it will all get us thinking outside of the box a bit.  So be sure to stop back on Monday for a little mess.  If anything it give you a little boost on a Monday.

Happy Weekend, lovelies . . . see you on Monday.

Those pens look great! Cannot wait to check them out. Are they like the Gel pens from like 5-6 years ago?

You will love them. Ughh…I’m not sure. They almost feel like paint. Little paint pens in gorgeous neon colors.

I love love love the watch straps. I have the Timex watch also and have been looking for a bright yellow strap. The yellow one from J Crew is too mustardy gold. When I click on similar, it takes me to a strange site. Please let me know where you found them!
