If you’ve been reading Snippet & Ink for awhile, then you know that every Friday I post links to some of my favorite finds from around the web. But if you’re new here (welcome!), and if you’re a bride (or groom!) in the midst of planning a wedding, then you might be wondering why a wedding blog has a weekly post dedicated to things that are (mostly) not wedding related. If you’re a bride or groom, you know that wedding planning, while usually delightful, can also be stressful and often all-consuming. So just think of this as a pause button; a chance to take a breather from the wonderful world of weddings…

Inspired by 1930s actress Dorothy Knapp‘s style.

BIG monthly planner to get the year started off right.

Lost my favorite sunglasses and looking for a new pair a la Grace Kelly. Suggestions?

Funny 1981 news segment about the Internet (I mean, it probably wasn’t funny then, but it’s pretty funny now).

Amazing what artist Elsa Mora can do with a little paper and glue.

Marshmallows? Cornflakes? Chocolate chips? These are quite possibly the best cookies I’ve ever had.

A little something blue for your ears?

Show mom and grandma’s handwritten recipes some love with this DIY project.

Gorgeous side braid tutorial on Once Wed.

Afternoon tea with a twist, aka the Sherlock & Watson cocktail.

If you have 30 seconds and need a laugh, this commercial did it for me.

Have a happy weekend, lovelies!

    A possible sunglass choice. Love these by Ralph Lauren. They have a little weight to them so you feel like you’re wearing something of substance. Wear a pair of these almost every day. $140 with the $20 discount.
