Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! Despite some interesting things happening around town (most notably, the Fremont Solstice Festival and Naked Bike Race) I’m looking forward to a pretty quiet weekend. A brunch here, a cocktail there, and if I’m feeling particularly ambitious, maybe I’ll even catch up on Game of Thrones. Do you have anything fun planned? While you think it over, here are a few fun links from this week.

Flourless chocolate cake, trips of a lifetime, coffee granita, how to build your dream closet, and the awesomeness of platonic rom-coms

1. I’m bookmarking this insanely decadent caramel-drenched flourless chocolate cake recipe for my next birthday. Sparklers a must! (What’s Gaby Cooking)

2. If you get bored this weekend, here’s how to create and organize the closet of your dreams. (The Everygirl)

3. This piece on the primacy of female friendship and the rise of the platonic rom-com really speaks to my soul. (The Atlantic)

4. Of the 12 types of trips everyone should take before turning 40, I’ve done 8 so far. Maybe I can combine a few for my next vacation. Solo cross-country road trip, perhaps? (PureWow)

5. I’ve saved the best for last: you can now order granita at Starbucks as part of their new sunset menu! Yummm! (Refinery29)

Have a great weekend!

Happy National Doughnut Day! I’m planning on celebrating this morning with a maple bar, my all-time favorite. What’s yours? Although I think I’m getting sick, so maybe I’ll wash it down with a green juice. Or maybe not… I almost made this week’s favorites entirely doughnut themed, but I managed to restrain myself. What can I say? I love a good sugar buzz.

1. Ok, so I had to throw at least one themed link into the mix. Here’s a list of 7 places offering free doughnuts, today and today only. You’re welcome.
2. Summer is the season for road trips. Whether they’re two hours, 24 hours, or 2 weeks, there’s nothing like hitting the open road with your girlfriend or husband by your side. Here are some great ideas for your next trip.

3. I know it may seem a bit contradictory to purchase a new dress in an effort to pare down my wardrobe, but having classic and flexible pieces is key to a minimalist wardrobe. This dress is perfect for work, brunch, and cocktails – just change out the accessories.

4. Earlier this week, Mil and I spent some time discussing having pancakes for dinner, and ever since then I’ve been craving pancakes. Some fluffy and nutty pancakes. Discovering a pancake cake took my craving to the next level.
5. I watched this video of a baby lemur at least 5 times yesterday. Wait until you watch it getting fed with a dropper. Too cute.
