Going to keep this short since it's officially the holiday weekend and it's time to relax! Can I start off by saying, what a week! Nice long staycation filled with one heck of a to-do list and some time with friends sounds like the perfect way to relax. So while I work on building furniture, writing thank you cards and party hopping, check out these favorite links below but before that be sure to keep your pets safe this weekend and extra loved as the fireworks aren't their friends:

HMM...IS THIS FOR REAL?
Forget the green juice for detoxing my phone, it's all about Shungite. Thanks to Chalkboard Magazine, I might need to test this out. Would You or Wouldn't You: Healing Crystals for Your Cell Phone

HOME IMPROVEMENT
Casa Berrini needs more storage as Mr. B's t-shirt collection has hit overload. Thanks to Pinterest I stumbled upon this ikea hack from Melodrama, who I love from instagram. Crazy how pinterest lead me to her helpful blog full of awesomeness. I'll be making my bench for the bedroom so wish me luck!

ROCK ON JUSTINA BLAKENEY
Mad props to Justina Blakeney for sharing her story about a recent shopping trip to find a dress for an upcoming photo shoot. She has some great points in this article. Read for yourself: WTF Barney’s?!?

ON REPEAT:
O
n a random drive I discovered BreadandButter by El Perro Del Mar. The video is pretty interesting and surprisingly there's a banana flower in it! On a recent prop shopping excursion, I purchase a banana flower for a conceptual photo shoot. Glad to see others find beauty in this crazy fruit/blossom.
