We're already on volume 7 of these? I can't believe I've been blogging for about a month and a half! It's been so different than I expected, but in a good way! I'm so excited to keep seeing where things go and to keep interacting with other awesome bloggers and companies! This week was another super busy one, this was my last week commuting to a client about an hour away, so I'm hoping things are going to be freeing up a little bit in the near future. I'm excited for this weekend because it's going to be relaxing. I really don't have a whole lot planned and I'm fine with that! I plan on catching up on sleep, hanging out with Alex and friends, doing some work on the blog, and watching some Netflix. We all deserve at least one weekend like that per month right?

Anyways, here are your Friday links!

Around the Internet:

1// This New Orleans house tour has me seriously wanting to buy a house in NOLA or decorate any home I buy up here like I'm in Nola. Serious interior inspiration!

2// How Millennials are Changing Wine  - as a millennial and a wine drinker myself I found this an interesting read

3// 30 delicious things to cook in November - Alex and I love our grocery delivery services (we use Blue Apron and HelloFresh, depending on the recipes each is offering that week) and I've been loving all the root vegetables they've been including lately. I am going to have to try some of these recipes!

4// Pumpkin Spice Sugar Scrub DIY - This looks like it could be a nice treat for myself this weekend to relax.

5// Green Day Documentary gets theatrical release. How did I not hear about this until now? Anyone want to go see it with me?

6// Did anyone shop H&M x Balmain? It's already sold out so I guess I won't be getting that sequined dress for the holidays after all...does this remind anyone of Lilly for Target?

On my shopping wishlist:

1// I've been wanting to try Zella leggings, these are on sale so now might be the time

2// Another sale item, this green hooded coat for under $100

3// The perfect sweater dress for fall

4// How cute are these Fox flats?

5// I've been lusting after this dress for awhile, I think it'd be perfect for a Friendsgiving!

6// A chic gray cape at a great price

My Favorite Blog Posts of the Week:

Also, I finally published my New Orleans food and drink guide! Check it out, it took awhile to get everything together but I am really happy with the listing so far. I do plan on adding to it and updating it in the future, so definitely check it out if you're headed to NOLA!
