Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.
Stay Icy by Martha Rich // There are several September birthdays in my family, and I can't help but think of cake.
Friday Favorites: Brilliant Fuchsia Felted Mini // Joe Fresh Ballet Flats // Sarah Pinto 2013 Planners //
Live Colorfully Umbrella // Convertible Clutch // Essie Polish in Chinchilly // Bold Stripe Lucite Tray
Hola! Erin Jang Buttons // Turn up the color with J.Crew's Spring 2013 line. I think I might need this "darling" sweater and stat. // I finally finished "Then Again" by Diane Keaton. She's absolutely adorable, especially in these photographs! // I'm loving the return of Fall TV, and I'm especially smitten with NBC's The New Normal. It's witty and fun, but the inclusion of two Bernese Mountain Dogs has me sold! You'll want to set your DVR, my friends!
How amazing is this Polka Dot House? The image was featured in Life Magazine in 1952.
Illustrations by Ali Douglass have me eager to clean the house for my father-in-law's arrival. Why can't all cleaning supplies be this colorful? // I want to recreate this branch clothing rack so badly. Isn't it lovely? // It's Flyboy's birthday next Wednesday. Let the search for this year's birthday cake recipe begin! I'm thinking this Frozen Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream Cake should hit the spot! // Hello, September! // I keep seeing these Warhol-inspired soup cans everywhere. It's been the best $4.00 I've spent in a long time! // Lovely handwritten letters. // 
Be Nice. (The world is a small town.) You must check out Austin Kleon's book, Steal Like an Artist.
I'm excited about Joy Cho's Make Someone Happy series. Could she be any cuter?
Mindy Kaling's new show officially airs on September 25th, but the first episode is available on Hulu. Woo hoo!
Learn how to perfectly frost a scallop cake.
How to properly wash your makeup brushes.
Dress your tech devices with Designlovefest and Poolga. This "Touching Moment" made me giggle.
Planning a party? Check out these free printables.
A September calendar from Creature Comforts: Chin up buttercup! 
Did you see Gwynnie's homage to J.Crew in this week's GOOP newsletter? I die.
How to move forward after hearing "No."
The nerdiest tip.
48 Hours in Venice: The photos are dreamy!

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
Enjoy the weekend.


P.S. Have I really posted 400 times? That's so cray (<-- sounds as silly as it looks)!
Pin It!
