lazy sunday links: première partie

hello sophisticated friends. we've had some technical difficulties apologies!
we're going to ease back into this with a new series. 

.: lazy sunday links :. 
a collection of the things that have inspired me this week

...happy sophisticating...

 my husband and i are beginning plans to convert our 1934 carriage house [wannabe garage] into a fun hang-out space. i'm thinking barn lights & an industrial bar are non-negotiables.

 ran out of candles the other day. not sure how that happened, but was so glad to have stumbled upon this quick fix to make our home smell like a williams sonoma. give it a try!

just love this.

it feels like summer is already arriving in southern california, so i loaded up on cherry tomatoes to make this summer garden pasta.

"big girl in a skinny world" - a new youtube show starring my dear friend marcy guevara for marie claire. ladies of all sizes should check it out for tips on sophisticating your wardrobe!

cannot wait to bake this beautiful rose water glitter cake for a special occasion.

what are your favorites?
