I was super happy to find out I won this Emma Dime giveaway for a pack of Artifact Uprising post cards. I love Artifact Uprising, and have ordered many a photo book for family members and friends. Thank you so much for the post cards Emma, and thanks for designing such gorgeous materials AU!

What products do you love from Artifact Uprising? Want to order 100 Intagram books now? Also, anyone spot the photo I slipped in to my post card book that is from the best movie ever? (Hint – “He’s taken off both of his shoes, and one of his socks. And I think he’s crying.”)

Happy Tuesday!

My dear friend Lauren represents some beautiful brands by way of her boutique digital strategy firm, L23. We’d been chatting about collaborating for a while, and decided to photograph a few of her client TYSA‘s top pieces, worn by my fiercest girlfriend Krista, to be featured here on ALA! Krista loves florals, so she created some stunning flower crowns to accessorize the outfits.

I’ll release a more photos of the collaboration every week. I took a lot of pictures! How’s your Monday going? Back at school, yet? Do you want to jump into these pictures? Or maybe start wearing a flower crown to work? (I know I do!)

Here are some snapshots I took a while ago at Cousteau’s Waffle and Milkshake Bar in St. Augustine. Thier menu is The Life Aquatic inspired, which makes me smile because it’s one of my favorite films. To follow their latest flavors and things, follow them on instagram and facebook!

Round Up No. 6

July 5, 2014

After seeing this space by Daniel Maddock, I’m rethinking my living room…and every other room in my house.

I’m pretty sure my girlfriends and I listened to Blink 182 every of our childhood. Somehow, this guy wrapped up all those memories into a five minute drum solo.

Kimberley Hasselbrink, author of Vibrant Food and The Year in Food posted about this sangria on A Cup of Jo and I can’t stop thinking about it. Want to make it, like, ASAP!

Erin Gloria Ryan wrote a field guide about U.S. girls by state for Jezebel. My inner improv princess only kind of keeps me from getting bothered over her suggesting that Florida girls favorite book is, “Magazines.”

I found the blog, Five True Stories recently and loved this essay about Philip Seymour Hoffman.

I am a huge fan of Emma Robertson and her blog, Emma Dime. This studio tour post is so fun and Summer’y. My favorite link of the week, by far.

What links are you loving this week?

Weekend Notes | Noella Flora

July 1, 2014

My girlfriend Krista starting arranging florals as a part of her summer internship, and man is her work gorgeous. (She hashtags all her arrangements with #NoellaFlora, if you want to follow her floral journey on Instagram.) I snapped a few photos of her flower crowns last week, and am still in awe. I wonder if other people would think I’m nuts if I wear one to run errands? I just think they’re so beautiful!

Huge thank you to Krista for making these amazing crowns. (For a photoshoot I’ll share on the blog later!) Krista, you inspire me every day and I love you so much!

Who is your favorite florist? I’d love to know!
