Friday Finds: 8.14.15

friday finds -

On Wednesday night Mike and I checked out The Perseids. At midnight we hopped in our car and drove down a deserted ghostly highway to make our way past the edge of the city to where the water laps the shore. We spread out our blanket, I tucked myself into Mike’s arm and we let our eyes adjust to the blackest of nights – thank you, new moon. It took a while, but we saw two giant shooting stars together and two tiny ones, separately. I would have lay out there forever but somehow I missed the memo on how you’re supposed to dress in the middle of the night in summer. After a while my shivering became too apparent to ignore so we headed home. But it was a blast and they’re still on so we might just head out again tonight.

Aside from the starry stuff, here’s what I’ve been checking out on the internet!

1. The cutest thing I’ve seen all week!
2. This makes me feel super old but also I weirdly think I kinda like some of the accessories on Shop Jeen?!
3. Stringy hair. Yay or nay?
4. Co-living and working. Kind of reminds me of this book, but much less extreme, of course.
5. I would be terrified if I had to live without smell.
6. Here’s a dream bungalow.
7. Do you remember: “Friday, Friday, gotta get down to Friday?”
8. This was an interesting read on lingerie in Egypt.

Link Love:
1. This homemade soft serve.
2. A gorgeous olive oil pound cake.
3. My kind of melon salad. (The photos are breathtaking!)
4. The pretzel knots of my dreams.

I’ve got my eyes on you:
1. I think I need this berry basket.
2. Dreaming about making tofu at home.
3. I really really need to find a way to justify buying this and these to go along with…

Have a wonderful weekend friends! Hope you catch some meteors!
love & potatoes,
xoxo Steph

    How lovely! I’m pretty bummed I missed that meteor shower…not like I could see it in NYC. Glad you were able to go though!

  3. Def Nay to the stringy hair – I don’t understand!! >.<

  4. Whoooo! Friday.

    Yea on the stringy hair. I wear my hair “fabulously undone” so much more (read: always) since moving from Southern California to New Hampshire. Fist pump.

    And tofuuu! They make it locally here and it is so much YES. Just bought some from the farmer’s market.

    :) Happy weekend!
