:: Meanderings from life + the interwebs ::

:: Peace Out :: 
These festival-inspired looks from Free People have me wishing I was at Coachella. Conveniently, next weekend I'll be in Palm Springs with my family, so perhaps I'll be able to swing some tickets. Until then I've been living vicariously through two of my favorite bloggers, Bonnie and Christina, who are attending together. 

:: Toss A Tassel :: 
My favorite DIY this week was a guest post from Lotts and Lots on Thanks, I Made It. How cool is this necklace? The colors are perfect for springtime. 

:: Follow :: 
Fact - The best person on Twitter is a quilter named Muriel. She's a spunky New Yorker who is smart, full of wit and, well, she's a 94 year old on Twitter. This automatically makes her cool.

:: Groove ::
Have you heard the new OneRepublic album? It's great. Really, really great. There's a song called Preacher which is one of my favorites. I like the lyrics + emphasis on making your own destiny.

:: Throw a party :: 
Design Sponge introduced me to event designer David Stark, who uses sustainable materials & recyclable goods for this parties, and I'm dying to read his book. 

:: Click Through ::
:: This week I shared a few of my favorite things at Mimosa Lane
:: Olive oil, honey, sugar & milk. You may think I'm referencing ingredients in a recipe, but no, I'm making a nod toward 12 Surprising Beauty Secrets from Lucky. Have you tried any of these?
:: Elle Decor's 12 Rooms In Bloom is making me have severe floral envy.
