HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

When it comes to my personal style icons, this Princess of Monaco is near the top of the list. Check out 7 of Grace Kelly’s greatest quotes.  (#5 is my favorite)

I’m not embarassed to admit it: I love Valentine’s Day. I love all the red and pink, the love notes, and the general sugary-sweet goodness that comes with the holiday. This Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of whipping up a little breakfast for my husband and I think heart-shaped waffles are a good place to start. How do you make heart-shaped waffles? With this little contraption. Genius.

One Kings Lane is currently having one of my very favorite sales: The Editor’s Eye. It’s a recurring sale that pops up every so often and includes a curated mix of the most amazing vintage things. You can find everything from malachite pillows to lucite chairs to knick-knacks like this Blenko vase. There are things (hello) for your jewelry box, too. It’s these lamps that are calling my name.

If there’s anything you’ve had your eye on in the J.Crew sale, now is the time to go for it. They’re offering an extra 40% off the already-marked-down prices with the code FINDAFAVE. I love they’re boyfriend flannels so I’ll definitely be grabbing a couple of those, and since it’s cold (and getting colder), I think it’s the perfect time to finally pick up one of these. Be sure to take a peek at the jewelry. I found some really great things (this bracelet!) there.

Who’s a Scandal fan? Me too. It occurred to me last week that I have yet to see Kerry Washington on the cover of Vogue. I was certain that I was wrong about this and did a quick search. Nothing. It’s a bit surprising, no? I’m not the only one that noticed. Here, why Kerry Washington definitely deserves a Vogue cover.

If one of your 2015 resolutions was to stay healthy but you’ve suddenly got a craving for something sweet, check out these five recipes for junk food smoothies. They’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without breaking your resolution. (The “Protein Peanut Butter Cup” one sounds extra yummy.)
