Happy Weekend

February 7, 2014

Well, this week just flew by for me, how about you? I got a lot done, but there’s still a lot more on that to-do list! One of the projects I’m working on calls for all these gorgeous florals, I’m not complaining – I’ll fill my house and play with these pretty blooms all day everyday! So you may or may not be seeing more of these…
 
Some things I’m loving this week //
 
My sweet friend Thao of Parc Boutique was featured on The Everygirl. She is seriously a powerhouse up there in Minneapolis. I remember when we met up for coffee couple months ago, I was in awe as she was telling me her story – from starting her own business to getting where she is now (+ everything in between). What I admire the most is that she always stays true to herself, and you can really see her style, vision, and passion in everything she does. I’m so happy that everyone can now get to know her a little better – she’s incredible.
 
After taking a break to do some self / brand reflection + trying to figure out where she wants to go in her career, Kadie is now back to blogging again. She’s starting a new chapter, learning new things, and I’m so excited to see all the wonderful things she’ll be doing! Follow along her journey.
 
Alecia introduced me to this AYR collection, AYR = All Year Round. I’m obsessed – these simple, minimalistic pieces are ah-mazing.
 
Okay, this was a week.. or maybe 2 weeks ago, but Kate wrote a great post on “Women vs Women” and self-respect. She talks about instead of judging and envying each other and giving back handed compliments, we should celebrate each other’s successes and work towards empowerment and self-respect – yep, a good read.
 
What are you loving this week? Please share :)

  • Samantha [ little green ]

    Totally agree with you, this week went by so, so quickly!

    I loved that article by Kate as well. So true! I also loved this article about happiness on Fast Company (http://www.fastcompany.com/3024608/how-to-be-a-success-at-everything/6-simple-habits-to-keep-you-consistently-happy-every-day), it’s really inspirational and I definitely want to try the early mornings and daily exercise.

    Have a great weekend xx

    Lovely flowers! Looking forward to seeing what you do with them :) This week flew by for me too! I think with the snow days I got a little thrown off. But yay, it’s Friday! Definitely going to give that self-respect article a read. Such an important topic. Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Huong

    I don’t mind seeing more of these posts, V! Flowers have a big place in my heart and home. :) I totally agree! When you first posted about Thao and Parc Boutique, I headed to her shop right away and loved everything about it! To get to know her through that article on The Everygirl was so great. She’s so inspirational and proves that it doesn’t matter where you start or what you know, just do it. You learn along the way and dreams will come true. I’m also loving that Juley from Upperlyne be a part of The Everygirl too! So amazing to see girl power!

    Have a wonderful weekend, love! XO

  • Kelly Brito

    I also loved finding AYR through Alicia’s blog. Parc Boutique is definitely up on my list, as well.
    Have a fantastic weekend, you wildly talented photographer/creative! :)

  • Sarah \ Safaris and Sunsets

    I love the AYR collection – very excited to snatch up a couple of those great pieces! The piece “Women vs Women” was a lovely read. Really a good one! Happy Friday dear!

    • Victoria | Oh So Pretty

      That AYR collection is so great. It’s so hard for me to find simple, minimalistic pieces these days, so I’m really loving it! I really enjoyed Kate’s “Women vs Women” post – so good right? Have a lovely weekend, Sarah!

  • juni

  • Kyla

    Happy weekend! Yes, this week really flew by, especially with the snow day in the middle of the week. And thanks for these links! I saw that Everygirl feature, but had no idea it was your friend!

  • Kara @ Bostonista

    Thank you so much for sharing Kate’s post! Women are so hard on each other to the point where it almost seems odd when someone is supportive instead of unreasonably harsh!
