links of the week

Happy weekend! I'm jetting off to Cincinnati this weekend to go DRESS SHOPPING with my very best friends and family. This will be the first time seeing my best friends since getting engaged and I am so excited to see them and to celebrate. I'm so thankful to have such an amazing group of friends and family to support me during this time. Feel free to follow along via instagram! 

Now onto my favorite links of the week...

I love hearing productivity tips from fellow bloggers. I loved Jess' calendar blocking idea! 
A good save vs. splurge is always a fun read. Amanda went one step further and showed the difference between cult beauty products and their less-expensive dupes.
I've had my eye on this bag after rave reviews from Grace and Hallie. You can't beat the price either!
I've finally found the most perfect trench, thanks to Julia.
Looking for packed lunch ideas? I've bookmarked Carly's post for my next grocery trip.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!
