Friday's Favorites Finds {Vol. 1}

Hello & Happy Friday!
    Tomorrow is my big moving day so I am a bit behind on taking photos.  I did however want to share with you guys a few snaps of my new apartment along with some of my favorite finds from this week!
Here it is- my new apartment! I fell in love with the dark hardwood floors and the quirky charm, but its really the location that cannot be beat! It is not the hugest space ever but I am going to get creative and make it work as both my bedroom (in the back) and my living room vintage studio!
A few weeks ago I offered a shop credit over on Elana's blog Room 334 for a big anniversary giveaway she was doing. To my delight, the adorable Priya of Perfectly Priya was the giveaway winner, and I LOVE how she styled her Braided Bandit 1960s Floral Dress!
I just came across this amazing jewelry designer from Melbourne named Emily Green who uses some of the prettiest color palettes that I have ever seen! I just favorite a million of her clay beaded necklaces on etsy, and she is a featured seller on Fab.com today too.  I think this one has to be my current favorite!
I found this adorable article on refinery 29 this morning featuring 5 inspiring London gals and their kitty accomplices.  My favorite part had to be the interview with model and blogger Ruth Crilly and her cat Mr. Bear, which went something like this:
What’s on the new-season wish list for you and Mr Bear?
"We both want a new country house with a big garden. It's a work in progress. To be frank, Mr Bear is crap at saving and I'm addicted to Net-A-Porter so things are moving quite slowly."
What is next for you (and Mr Bear)?
"More of the same! As I write this I'm off to an exciting shoot and Mr Bear is snoozing on his back with all four paws in the air. It just sums up life, really, we're both having a great time!"
And speaking of cute kitties, the best thing ever happened to me yesterday!  So, my new apartment is right next to my office, and I have been unloading boxes during my lunch break every day.  Yesterday, I went to unlock the new apartment and propped open the door.  I then ran to my car to grab a box, and in the maybe 30 seconds I was gone, this found its way inside my place and made itself right at home!  He was so happy being inside out of the 100 degree mid day heat, I couldn't get him to leave! I had to waggle a string of my necklace all around and out the door to finally get him to follow me out!  He then sat there staring at the door with my necklace hanging out of his mouth, very proud of his catch but upset he was tricked. I am thrilled to have made a new friend in the neighborhood so quickly ;)

Have a great weekend!
