Happy Friday, everyone! What are you up to this weekend? The first weekend of June already – it certainly feels like summer now, doesn’t it? I have a busy weekend ahead of me – hosting a garage sale (hurray for purging junk out of our home!) and celebrating my friend’s birthday. Sunday, I will be at Lilac Festival on 4th Street at The Mission with AVI Urban – come visit if you are in Calgary! Hope you have a good one whatever you get up to.

While you wait for the weekend to begin, here are a few of my favourite things this week…

I am obsessed with this new Saved by the Bell themed diner in Chicago. Someone out there is making all of our dreams come true and I love it. And I love it even more that Vogue had the exclusive story on it.

Louis Vuitton’s Resort 2017 show in Rio De Janeiro was earlier this week. Beyond the incredible fashion, I am head-over-heels for the seating choices flanking the curvy runway. Spray painted plastic crates for the win. Definitely DIY inspiration for my next backyard party. Also – that view?!

The AVOCADO emoji is coming, you guys! As is the black heart and ‘fingers crossed’ emoji. It is rather sad how excited I get about the addition of new emojis but I guess it is a part of modern life.

I made hot for food blog’s vegan BBQ (cauliflower) wings this week and was blown away by how delicious they were. I don’t even like ranch sauce and I was licking the bowl clean. Another vegan recipe for the win!

I didn’t know you could propagate your own succulents. This is a super helpful blog post detailing how to grow itty-bitty succulents right at home.
