Happy Friday, friends!

I hope this week has treated you well and that you're ready for the weekend ahead. Thank you all for another wonderful week here at BeB, you all are truly sweet as can be and continue to inspire me everyday. I've collected quite the list of 'likes' this week and thought today would be a fantastic time to pass some of them along. I've also added some new blogs to my 'favorites' list on the right sidebar.

Click away and enjoy, loves!

This week Taylor Sterling, creator of the much anticipated Glitter Guide, announced that the official launch date is June 14! I'm simply bursting with excitement! You can follow all the updates, tweets, and tumbls until the launch. Go here to sign up for the newsletter and be the first in the know on all things GG!

Yesterday for Pink & Green Thursday Trish posted these gorgeous cupcake flowers that she baked this week. Aren't they lovely? I only wish I could've been there with her whipping them up like we did back in March with our rainbow creations!

You all know my affection for Matchbook Mag. The June issue, which launched just days ago, is positively the most wonderful one yet! It's full of colorful summer inspiration that I know you all will l-o-v-e!

You may be tired of hearing about it, but this closet revamp is virtually all that's on my mind lately. I'm hoping to wrap it up on Saturday and share the finished product next week!

Kori is hosting a wonderful giveaway featuring a set of note cards by Inslee Haynes to celebrate reaching 1,000 followers! Hop on over and enter now!


Finally, if you aren't familiar with long distance loving let me introduce you! {av} writes a wonderful blog, creates the most lovely collages and also hosts Friday Fancies, a fun linkup that has gained a significant following since she started it a few months ago. You simply create an ensemble (most of us use polyvore) disregarding all price tags and realistic nature- it's all about imagination!

As you can see, this week I was inspired by Gossip Girl. Since it's going to be on hiatus for a few months, I thought I would reminisce about the glamorous Paris episodes from last season. If I could've joined Blair and Serena on their adventure I most certainly would've worn a frock like the one above!


Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Those Sterling Style photos made me squeal! And the Paris episode of GG is one of my all-time favorites... I just die over the fashion and setting. Le sigh.

Your inspiration photos always are the BEST. I also can't ever get enough of Gossip Girl--but I must admit, their Parisian episodes are a few of my favorites. {I still can't believe everything that transpired this season, btw!} Anywho, as always, I can't tell you enough about how thankful I am to have you as a Friday's Fancies faithful and friend :) much love, my dear! xoxo {av}
