Favorite Things + Sponsor: The Lilac Linnet

Oh my, this new lens! The Canon 50mm f1.8 II lens takes amazing pictures, gets that awesome blurry background, and is lightweight (which is perfect for when I use my camera for work). I was considering getting the 50mm f/1.4, but that's $400 whereas this one is only $125. If you're looking for a new lens, this particular Nifty Fifty is where it's at. 

I have to talk about this marquee sign: How freaking adorable right? It's from Target for only $10, so get your butts over there now. I've putting put it on every night before bed and it creates the nicest glow. 

A few fun links:
