weekend round up

via here seen on Design Crush

J's last day for the semester was this past Monday so between celebratory brunches, holiday parties, and running "weekend" errands mid week, I had to remind myself that today was indeed Friday (not Tuesday or Thursday) and it was finally the weekend. We have Christmas parties all weekend long (some overlapping so we'll see what we can do) and our anniversary is Monday (and then Christmas is Friday) so it's bound to be a busy next few days. Before we jump into all of that though, I thought I'd share some of my favorite things from the web this week.

Like I mentioned, Christmas is only 7 days away. Still not sure what to buy that certain someone? Check out the multitude of Design*Sponge gift guides for ideas.

A unique twist to my birthstone

One of the most beautiful wedding (or any day) dresses I've seen in awhile

More reasons to love December (as if I needed any!)

Tired of the same ol' same ol' Christmas tunes? Check out the Flashdance for something with more of a twist.

With NYE just around the corner, let's all wear one of these and make the resolution to live a life without these regrets.

And to end it on a light note, one material- a ton of ideas.

Happy weekend everyone!
