Happy weekend + lovely links

Hi lovelies! The weekend snuck up on me but I'm glad its finally arrived! Its a cold + rainy here so I'm looking forward to relaxing and recharging, curling up with a few books on my reading list, namely two classics that I'm re-reading: The Great Gatsby + Anna Karenina. Other than that I'm planning to visit the markets, pick up some fresh flowers and indulge from a few sweet treats in the patisserie next door to me - this is going to be dangerous, I can tell! 

A few favourite lovelies this week ::

+ The new photographs Leigh Viner released in her Etsy store from her recent European travels are incredible. The Paris shots are my favourites.

+ The Matchbook Mag July Issue is dedicated to female entrepreneurs and I have to say, it was incredibly inspiring to read each of their stories. 

+ Meg just launched a great new series, Get Shit Done and the first interview was with Grace from Stripes + Sequins. I love reading how other people keep organised to GSD!

+ The home of Kyle DeWoody, creative director and co-founder of the art-meets-design store Grey Area, is all kinds of amazing. 

Don't forget the cushion giveaway ends tomorrow night, so make sure you enter for the chance to win your choice of any two cushions from Charlee Le More's Etsy store.

Have a lovely weekend friends!
