5 fave friday

Here are some great things that I really love this week.

5. this dress, so pretty!

4. Better Off Ted

This show is so funny. Does anyone watch it? It had me right from the start, I love the "commercials" they have for Veridian Dynamics.

3. Dream Job E-Course
If you have a small business or are thinking of starting one this course is fantastic. Elsie and Emma really did a great job. It is full of tips and tasks that are very helpful in thinking through, planning for and running a small business. I especially like the part where they talk about struggles they have faced throughout the course of Red Velvet. Not that I'm glad they have had struggles but it makes me feel better about where I am. I have really enjoyed reading through the course this week and I highly recommend it!

2. this poster
thanks to amy from a is for ampersand for showing me the link! also, amy's blog is pretty awesome and she is so cute (and has a cute kitty). you should totally stop by!

1. these tea mugs!
I am dying over these! Too cute!

I hope everyone has a good day. My day is starting out pretty fantastic. I bought some espresso beans from Starbucks and now my homemade vanilla lattes taste just like the real thing!



  1. That dress is adorable! It would look perfect on you!
    I should check out that show! I've been looking for something new to get into.
    I hope you have a fabulous Friday!

  2. That dress is adorable, especially the collar.

    I LOVE Better Off Ted! I can't believe it was only on for 2 seasons.

  3. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've commented on your blog, but I couldn't keep quiet any longer when you mentioned homemade lattes! Do you have an espresso maker? I recently got one and am still too afraid to use the milk steamer!

  4. You have just made my day more than you will ever know!!!! Elycia, you are so amazing, and I have been a huge fan of your blog for so long, so to have you participate in my pay it forward is sort of making my life right now!

    You are a gem, and thanks so much for the shoutout and SUPER kind words. Yay for crazy cat ladies! (PS--I'm in the Dream Job e-course too and LOVE it. I can't believe how amazing it is!)

  5. Cute cute finds! Your blog is so inspiring!!! I love stopping by in the morning to see what beautiful things you come up with next!

  6. Those tea mugs are so adorable! :]

  7. posidanielle, thank you! yes i feel like i need to make that dress mine!

    danielle, only two seasons! grumble. i thought maybe they were currently on season 2, haha. darn! why do the best shows get cancelled? ps. i saw you live in burlington, we're practically neighbours! have i said that before?

    amelie, i popped by your blog to talk lattes :)

    amy, you are so sweet. you just made my day with YOUR super kind words! I am excited about the pay it forward project!

    meredith, thank you!

    steffy, yeah! the collar is my favourite part for sure!

    kinsey, yes! if i somehow end up with those mugs one day i'll have you over for a tea party :)

  8. That dress is so lovely! The pattern and collar are precious! I'm taking the Dream Job course also, it's just like you said, I'm so inspired by what they've overcome and the knowledge the course lends!

  9. I signed up for the ecourse! Can't wait to really dig in! Happy Weekend!

  10. I ♥ Starbucks espresso beans. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Better off ted is SO great, I love that show, I could watch it for daaays. Season 2 was great too! And, unlike most of my favorite shows that got canceled in the middle of the season and threw together a patchy ending, I thought the ending was conclusive while still being light and charming!

    P.s. Those fake commercials make me cry from laughter

  12. love your blog :)
    and that dress!!!!!

  13. I think I'm going to start streaming Better Off Ted while I craft today. I've heard lots of good things about it from people that like good comedy.

  14. awe! thanks for talking about my course! so happy you love it!! elsie

    shilah, yes!

    no problem elsie!
