I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t watched, but the Project Runway season finale last night was FLAWLESS. This was my favorite season so far, it was the most entertaining and had the best designers in my opinion, and I was very happy with the way it all turned out. In fact, the finale was the highlight of my week in television. Lauren, catch up and then we can gab about it.
This week’s Friday Five is a bit of a smörgasbord without a cohesive theme. I only used the word smörgasboard to pop some umlauts into your day. You’re welcome.
First of all, that Midnight in Paris poster re-conceptualized by artist Travis English is just incredible. It should have looked like that from the beginning. He redesigns movie posters into really bold yet minimal graphics, and this one is obviously my favorite. It’s so genius! I’m looking into whether or not prints are available for sale. I think I need that hanging in my house somewhere (maybe the guest room?). And speaking of decoration, that bottle of dried flowers and bath salts (called “Flower Power”) is so beautiful, but it would have to sit in my bathroom without ever being used because it has chamomile flowers in it. Chamomile makes me break out into hives, go figure.
After the striped duvet set disaster, I’ve been on the constant prowl for a duvet that I love just as much. Well, I think I’ve found it in this Blissliving watercolor set. It matches my header! I love the colors and the smokey effect it gives the pillowcases. I think I could DIY something similar and save myself the $275 (!!!) this set costs. But look at it. Isn’t it beautiful? Why does it have to be so expensive??
My dad bought me a copy of Sophie’s World (A Novel About the History of Philosophy) when I was in 7th grade and in the intervening years I’ve made several failed attempts to read it. It’s roughly the size of a brick and is at times so dense and confusing that I couldn’t get into it and stay into it. I’m giving it another shot now, hoping that I’m better prepared to digest it at 25 than I was a 12. Though you’d think I’m still 12 from those penguin socks. Why do penguins have stripes on them? That makes no sense. I bought a pair of those fuzzy socks at Old Navy last weekend, and it is literally the best part of my day, coming home and putting them on. It’s like wrapping your feet in warm silky clouds. Fitz has tried to attack them every time I move. I don’t think he trusts them. Who doesn’t like fuzzy socks in the fall? Seriously.
What are you guys up to this weekend? Boyfriend returns home tonight after being away all week, only he leaves again early Sunday morning for another trip. Wah. We’re trying to cram a lot into Saturday, including attending a friend’s party; he just finished his PhD in Veterinary Immunology. I think that’s a reason to celebrate! Have a good one, kiddos.
