Weekend Wishes

Since I began working at my first 'big girl' job about a year and a half ago, I have learned to cherish my weekends. They go by way too quickly! I was inspired by some of my favorite blogs to compile a list of five fun things to try this weekend.  Let me know if you get a chance to try any of them!

1. Give yourself a fun fashion week inspired manicure. 


I absolutely love following Miss Lady Finger on Instagram.  She is so creative and posts step-by-step instructions for creating beautiful manicures inspired by the runway.  I'm looking forward to trying one of her tutorials this weekend!

2. Try your hand at a floral arrangement.


With Spring just around the corner, I am dying to get my hands on some fresh flowers and hone my flower arranging skills...which are at level zero right now.  Lauren Conrad's Flower Arranging 101 is a great resource for getting started. 

3. Have a five course dinner at five different places.


I saw this idea on The Glitter Guide earlier today and cannot wait to try it! Instead of your typical date night, plan a five course meal with a twist...you must have each course at a different location. Start with cocktails at one place, then move to another for appetizers, entrees, desserts, and then coffee. What a great way to get out of your typical date night routine!

4. DIY your own cork coasters.


Step-by-step instructions by yours truly are located here. I'm happy to report that I have been using my coasters nearly every day and they have held up really nicely!

5.  Treat yourself to a mini Oscar party.


I must admit that I am a sucker for Hollywood awards shows. I could spend hours watching E's Live From the Red Carpet! While I may not be throwing an Academy Awards party like Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere, I am looking forward whipping up some fun snacks and sipping on some champagne with frozen raspberries :)

Happy Friday, everyone!


Love,
Aly
