Friday Favorites

TGIF, you guys! It’s been a hectic week and I feel like my brain is at full capacity lately…between that and this chilly, damp weather we’ve been having in Seattle, I’m in a bit of an early summer funk. I may be in desperate need of a vacation (or a super long nap/light coma). Anyway, I hope you have something relaxing planned for the weekend! But first, let’s unwind with a few fun links.

Interview with the founders of theSkimm, coconut popsicles, Seattle city guide, an app that shuts down creeps on Tinder, and your ultimate beach bucket list

1. In this interview, the founders of theSkimm discuss finding your voice, going viral, and their journey from dreamers to full-fledged businesswomen. (The Coveteur)

2. These sweet & creamy coconut popsicles are basically summer on a stick. (Style Me Pretty)

3. Ladies, there are SO many creepers in the world. This new app is designed to help you fend off the worst of ’em. (Refinery29)

4. This city guide reads like a love letter to Seattle, and it’s inspiring me to do some exploration in my own backyard. How have I never heard of Neon Taco? (Cup of Jo)

5. If you agree that every getaway should include sunshine and sand, say hello to your ultimate beach vacation bucket list. (PureWow)

Bonus: I love the message of Together Women Can, a public awareness campaign encouraging women to support each other in the workplace as peers, mentors, and friends. (Lean In)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Friday! On a scale of 9-10, how excited are you for the weekend? The past few days have been crazy, and I’m looking forward to some much-needed relaxation time. There are three more days of Xfinity Watchathon Week left (which totally deserves national holiday status if you ask me), and I’ve got a LOT of binge watching left to do. I’m currently watching the first season of Outlander, and I am steadfastly determined to catch up on all the episodes before time runs out. Sleep is for the weak! Now let’s dive into the glorious weekend with some fun links from around the interwebs.

Friday Favorites this week include a mango margarita frosty and how to become a princess in four hours

1. I’m fascinated by personality profiling, and this app has one of the most unique takes on it I’ve ever seen. Completely different from Myers-Briggs, it’s nonetheless eerily accurate. (The Golden Girl)

2. If your ultimate dream is to pull a Grace Kelly and marry royalty, here’s your guide to becoming a princess. (NY Mag)

3. Four tantalizing little words: fresh mango margarita frosty. (How Sweet It Is)

4. Too broke to plan an international adventure? Here are some ideas for a night in that will transport you around the world. (The Everygirl)

5. Social media gurus, get your resumes ready: Queen Elizabeth II is looking for a new Head of Digital Engagement! This is your chance to hang out with the Royal Family and post a million corgi photos on Instagram…I’m guessing. (Refinery29)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Or will everyone be watching the Super Bowl? Whatever you’re up to, start the weekend off right with a few fun links!

Happy Friday, everybody! What’s shaking this weekend? The Game of Thrones premiere is two days away, just in time to fill the hole that the Walking Dead has left in my Sunday night (but not the one in my heart). Seattle Restaurant Week kicks off this weekend, and I’m excited to try someplace new. And I’ve got another clothing swap tomorrow, which reminds me, I need to weed through my closet at some point…procrastinate with me and enjoy a few of my favorite links from the week!
