5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week (3/8/2017)

“5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week” is a recurring series on The Blonde Chiffon. New edits are published every Friday, and the intent is to give readers a concise list of amazing thoughts/projects/trends to try over the weekend and into the next week. I hope that you are as inspired as I am by these finds!┬á


Ah, another edition of “5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week”. I’m so happy I started this series last month, because it’s been such fun for me to share these ideas with you guys! Richard’s birthday is this weekend, so I’m not sure how many of ’em I’ll be able to try, but the though of making these wholesome carrot muffins during my spring break next week is totally giving me life right now.

And before we jump right into the rest of your tentative weekend to-do list, I want to note: if you enjoy these posts, you should definitely sign up for my “Weekly Dose of Inspiration” newsletter. It goes hand in hand with “5 Things You Need in Your Life This Week”, but in the newsletter I share even more personalized, exclusive content like weekly reading suggestions, killer playlists, dope quotes, style steals & even more (yes, it’s possible to pack even more value into a weekly newsletter, I swear!).

Anyways, just sayin’, if you’d like to join the party, we’d love to have you ­čÖé

Now onward to this week’s amazing finds:

1. honey sweetened limeade with strawberries and basil

It seems like every week I’ve been incorporating some kid of tasty beverage into this series. It’s really hasn’t been intentional, but how can I not when I see concoctions like lemon raspberry sorbet prosecco floats and honey sweetened limeade with strawberries and basil? Absolutely delish, no?

2. diy ‘hey’ planters

Are these DIY planters cute or whaaaat? Succulents are so hip right now (yes, I just used the word “hip”, like a total grandma, I know), so this is the perfect simple weekend project to up your home decor a level.

3. these 5 teas & their benefits

I’m not a huge tea drinker, but I am a wellness fanatic. That means that I love learning about different natural remedies, and this is a great post for just that. I also like that the teas are personal recommendations, and it’s not just a “this is what is healthy, but probably tastes like sh*t” list.

4. wholesome carrot muffins

I love muffins, and these carrot ones look extra delish!

5. this wrap neck tie dress

I’ve been eyeing this floral neck tie dress all week, and I still can’t seem to get it off my mind. I love the tie in the front and the bold colors, which stand out from typical spring florals. This one’s definitely on my lust list.

Do you have any fun weekend plans? Anything of the above sound like a MUST-TRY? Let me know below in the comments!
