Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, one and all! What are your plans for the holiday weekend? I can’t quite decide what to do with myself – I’ve narrowed it down to a spontaneous road trip or marathon nesting in the new apartment. Either way, singing along loudly to upbeat tunes will surely be involved. While I mull it over, you guys can entertain yourselves with a few of my favorite links from this week…

1. These engagement ring traditions from around the world are so interesting. In Chile, men receive engagement rings too! (WhoWhatWear)

2. Have you heard of the Fluffington Post? It’s your go-to site for adorable, fluffy cuteness. (The Fluffington Post)

3. We all know that Etsy is a magical wonderland of shopping possibilities, but somehow I’ve never purchased any beauty products there. Well, that’s about to change with this roundup of cool beauty finds. The Mermaid Mask is especially intriguing. (Byrdie)

Have a fabulously relaxing long weekend!

P.S. This week marked our blog’s one year anniversary. It’s so bizarre to think that at this time last year we were just getting started! Huge thanks and big internet hugs to all of you who have read our posts, left us sweet comments, and made blogging so much fun. We love you!

Happy Friday, one and all! What’s going on this weekend? Tonight I’m seeing the new Hunger Games at a theater that brings you food and cocktails throughout the movie, and I could not be more excited. Tomorrow I’m attending a launch party for a friend’s new business, and I’m looking forward to celebrating with her and catching up with some ladies I haven’t seen in far too long. That means my Sunday is reserved for lounging around the house, and maaaaybe doing some Thanksgiving shopping and prep if I’m feeling proactive. (How is it possible that November has flown by when this week has passed so slowly?)

Anyway, here are some awesome links to distract you while you wait for the sweet release of the weekend. Enjoy!

4. An Australian television host wore the same suit on air every day for a year to prove a point about the harsh criticism his female co-host receives from the public; no one noticed he was wearing the same outfit all year. Point well made, sir. (

5. The Shedd Aquarium recently took in a tiny, abandoned sea otter pup who is now learning how to swim and basically how to be an otter. WARNING: her cuteness may be too much to handle. (

Have a wonderful weekend!
