TGIF – Weekend Links!

678472c634daf526a5ee37b396be9de5

I really like when other bloggers do sort of a link roundup at the end up the week with interesting things they’ve read or seen or bought, so I figured I would follow suit and see how it goes. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting?

  • The picture above is from the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, a city I’d really like to visit. If/when I do go to Istanbul, I want to stay here. Stunning, right?
  • I’m planning to finished reading A Path Appears this weekend. It’s incredibly inspiring and I highly recommend it.
  • We’re planning to eat here this weekend, finally! I’ve been wanting to go for ages but it’s a bit of a trek. I have a feeling it’s going to be worth it!
  • I just ordered this Tory Burch tunic which I fell in love with a few weeks ago – I had been willing it go on sale but finally just ended up buying it rather than risk it selling out. I’m going to Cabo next week for a friend’s bachelorette party and I can’t wait to wear it!

Sixties Inspired Editorial

1c936a018d88b871d4e9f5e36e840b03 I recently came across this quirky sixties inspired photoshoot and wanted to share it. I don’t even know how I found it – I think I had clicked through from one blog to another which took me to a random art site and then I somehow ended up looking at these images. That happens to me just about everyday, though usually I end up just taking a Buzzfeed quiz on whether or not I’m living in the correct city or accidentally online shopping. But every once in a while I find something interested while distractedly browsing, like this fun shoot!

Aren’t the images interesting? I love the clothes and want to move right into this glamorous house. I’m not so fond of the hair, but it kind of works on her, doesn’t it? Maybe if you’re tall and blond and have great cheekbones you can (almost) get away with a bowl cut…

Trying New Things

paintbrushes

There’s an art gallery in my neighborhood that I walk by just about everyday that offers adult art classes; I often see people in there studiously painting and looking so relaxed and in their element. I kind of want to sign up, but it seems a little daunting. I’ve never really painted and wouldn’t consider myself a super (or even mildly, if we’re being honest) artistic person, but I think there’s something to be said for trying new things, right?

I actually have signed up for an art history course at UCLA beginning next week, which I’m very excited about. I know basics and try (key word “try”) to check out whatever exhibits are currently showing at the museums and galleries here but I definitely need to brush up a bit, as I’m pretty sure I texted through a fair amount of Art History 101 when I was in university (sorry mom and dad).

Do you have any classes or workshops that you’re planning or wishing to attend? Anything you’ve always wanted to do but weren’t sure how to go about doing it? I’d love to hear!
