Summer pins |

My Pinterest feed has been full of color lately, so I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer-inspired pins. I’m loving that living room!

Saguaro Palm Springs |
Now that it’s March, I’m getting really excited about my birthday next month. I’m turning 30 (!), so instead of wanting to avoid the day completely, I’ve decided to embrace it! I’ve upped my fitness game and am hoping to reach my fitness goal by the beginning of April because I’m going to Palm Springs for my 30th birthday celebration!

I booked a room at The Saguaro for myself and a couple of my closest girlfriends to spend a few days laying in the sunshine, maybe drinking a few cocktails (I can’t even remember the last time I had alcohol), and indulging in a spa treatment (or two). I’d love to get in a trip to some vintage stores, but, honestly, I’m just looking forward to relaxing in the sun for a couple days with some of my favorite people.

It will be my first time to Palm springs, so if anyone has any tips for great restaurants or things to do, hollar at me here or on Twitter. I’d love to hear your suggestions!

farmstand veggies | tinyinklings.comJust wanted to pop in and wish everyone a happy Friday. I’ll be working on finishing up some drawings for this challenge, trying a couple new recipes, and loving on my pups.  I went over to the farm stand near my house this afternoon and came back with the prettiest spread of friuts and veggies!  Who says winter veggies have to be bland?  I’m really excited about the baby broccoli.  I’ve been reading through the Mozza cookbook and there is a recipe for sautéed broccolini with chiles and vinegar that I’ve been dying to try.  And those blood oranges?!  I’m really going to have to enjoy those raw, perhaps in salad form (although if I had a juicer, I would make some fresh squeezed blood orange juice, STAT).  Mmmmm…

Other than that, the weather is looking blustery and cold again, so I’ll just be holed up inside the house in my grandma sweater drinking coffee and probably watching reruns of Friends on DVD.  No bigs.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Xoxo!

Most of the world (well, the working world at least) has the day off today to relax, enjoy this beautiful January weather we’ve been blessed with, celebrate Mr. King, and tune in to the presidential inauguration. Sadly, I get to partake in none of these things (except for remembering MLK, I can do that anywhere), so to keep myself from falling asleep at my desk today, I glanced through my pins to find some brights to jump start my afternoon. A bold slap of pink and red anyone? Yes please. Now I’m awake.

I’m not normally a red kind of gal, but these images have me flushed.

We had a truly gorgeous sunset sky over the weekend, which lead me to putting together these three images I found.  I’m loving the color combo of pink and yellow lately, too.

Really loving the moodiness of these landscape paintings by Ohio-based painter Robert Roth.  Oh how I’d love to hang something like this in my house.

There’s something so pretty about these color palettes and scallop patterns.  Makes me want to be a mermaid! Happy Monday everyone!

Holy cow, look at this lake!  A little info about it:

Situated north of the Cap Vert Peninsula in Senegal, northeast of Dakar, Lake Retba, or as the French refer to it Lac Rose, is pinker than any milkshake you’ve ever come face to straw with.

And once you see it, you too will agree that a sippy straw may be in order over a boat.

Experts say the lake gives off its pink hue due to cyanobacteria, a harmless halophilic bacteria found in the water.

If the color weren’t enough to make you smile, it should be known that Lake Retba has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water. In fact, Lake Retba has an almost one and a half times higher salt content than the Dead Sea.

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope this crazy pink lake got your week off to a happy start.
