Friday Favorites

Man oh man, what a week. I started this month with the best of intentions for a great January: exercise, healthy eating, and wearing big girl outfits to work. Of course all that went to the wayside by Tuesday at 6:00 pm. Hello hash browns for dinner with a side of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and Skittles for dessert. No joke. And don’t even get me started on Alan Rickman… I’m looking forward to recovering with Mil tonight and then getting glammed up for the opening night of Marriage of Figaro tomorrow. Hope you have a good weekend and enjoy this week’s roundup.

1. Embroidery and cross-stitch are having a comeback. Get a head start on this up and coming trend by following these embroidery Instagram accounts. Trust me, they’re beautiful and much cooler than they sound!

2. Sydney Loves Fashion is one of my favorite local fashion blogs. I particularly love her Seattle shopping guide series. This week she came out with her guide to Capitol Hill, a must visit neighborhood for all you out of towners.

3. As alluded to above, I’ve been off my outfit game recently. I love the ideas from this Career Girl Daily article on How to be the Editor in Chief of Your Own Wardrobe. Keeping an editorial calendar is something I’m seriously considering. After I moved towards a seasonal capsule wardrobe, I’ve found myself wearing the same four outfits on repeat.

4. Online dating is a mystery to me. I somehow bypassed the phenomenon of  Tinder, Match, and OkCupid. Everyone tells me I’m better off not knowing, but a very small part of me wonders what it’s like to puzzle through the question: how to dress for a Tinder first date?

5. This recipe from How Sweet Eats is destined for Mil’s mouth: Cheese Enchiladas of My Dreams.

Happy Friday, everyone! How was your week? What are you up to this weekend? It’s supposed to be gorgeous here in Seattle, so Jules and I are making time to lounge in the sun in between various parties, work commitments, and Mother’s Day festivities. Seeing the new Avengers movie is also on my to-do list…and perhaps some shopping for our San Diego trip! So let’s kick off the weekend with a few fun links. Enjoy!

Friday Favorites 5.18.15

1. This hilarious Saturday Night Live skit featuring Scarlett Johansson takes aim at sexist film tropes and shows us what it might look like if Marvel actually tried to make a girl superhero movie. (refinery29.com)

2. Your besties + hideous bridesmaid dresses + paintball guns = the most awesome bachelorette party ever. (buzzfeed.com)

3. Who hasn’t, in times of stress, imagined how great it would be to roll around in a pile of puppies? One university created a “Puppy Room” in collaboration with a guide dog charity; stressed-out students who make a small donation can play with puppies to their heart’s content. Where was this when I was in college? (boredpanda.com)

4. Early studies are showing that a diet rich in cheese may protect against cardiovascular disease. Yay science! On a related note, a career as a cheese scientist sounds pretty sweet. (pbs.org)

5. Everyone hates chores. They are the worst. So how amazing would it be to simply send a text and come home to a fully-stocked fridge, clean laundry and a sparkly-clean bathroom? With Alfred, the dream is real! Alfred is a new, super-affordable personal butler/cleaning service that learns to anticipate your needs, ensuring you never have to run another soul-deadening errand again. (brit.co)

Have a fantastic weekend!
