high five for friday

1. i’ve been swooning over these two books and finally bought them on Amazon earlier this week. they’re the perfect addition to my desk.
2. a collection of pretty things on a cake plate.
3. officially into these. they’re perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up without having to go to a starbucks.
4. creativity was flowing in these parts yesterday. i made some new items to hopefully add to the shop this weekend.
5. the snuggle monsters strike again.

how was your week? link up below!

    Mmmm. I love starbucks frapps but switched to the lite ones because they taste the same but have way fewer calories (just an fyi if you're addicted like I am!). Also super excited to see what you add to your shop!
