Every week, I’m constantly inspired by other bloggers, articles and just various fun finds I come across.  And obviously, I want to share them with all of you!

Takeya Modern Flip Straw Bottle // I’m currently obsessed with my new water bottle!  I”ve been searching for the perfect glass water bottle for awhile now and I knew I found the winner when I saw this beauty.  Not only does it come in a sleek design, but I love the fact that it has a great straw feature for easy access.

Ultimate Cupcake Guide // For all you experimental bakers out there, a great guide to make your ideal cupcake

The Right Ice // Who knew ice cubes could be so fancy?

Americans like to Drink Bad Coffee // This just makes me sad. I loooooveee coffee. What’s your take on America’s coffee trend

Momofuku Cookbook // My second biggest obsession this week.  I recently got back from NY where I got to try Momofuku Saäm Bar.  David Chang is a pure genius.  So I got the Momofuku Cookbook and can’t put it down.  Not only does it have great recipes that a home cook can try (more on this later!), but he tells the journey he took to get to momofuku and truly how harsh the restaurant industry can be for people who just want to cook good food.  Must read!  If not for the recipes, for a behind the scenes look at how he built his Momofuku empire. 

Hope you guys have a great weekend and eat lots of yummy food!
