happy weekend + lovely links

Happy weekend friends! I've been super busy in my day job this week as the project I've been working on for the past 6 months is nearing launch so it is a mad rush to finish it - I know this weekend will involve lots of latte's! I'll hopefully squeeze in time to catch up on your lovely blogs + a some long runs with Charlie to keep myself sane...

Here are my lovely picks this week...

* Nicole reveals the incredible bachelor pad she designed.

* I loved this Mad Men-editorial for US Vogue, styled by Grace Coddington. (discovered via Helen)

* Kinfolk Magazine collaborated with Etsy to create the loveliest video recipe on homemade pesto.

* Leighton Meester looks gorgeous in her editorial + cover for Marie Claire.

* Beautiful interior shots of a photographer's home.

I have also just ordered one of these lovely cushions from a new Australian Etsy store I discovered + I can't wait for it to arrive!

Do you have any exciting plans? Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

Rachel xo
