Friday Favorites

Welcome back Friday! How I’ve missed you! This weekend we’re moving into our new apartment in Durham. Long lost clothes will be recovered, furniture will be assembled, and copious amounts of pizza will inevitably be consumed. I’m super bummed because the way our move is shaking out, it looks like I may not be able to watch the Oscars. We sold our TV when we moved to North Carolina, so I’ll be dependent on updates from Mil and social media. Are you watching this weekend? Whatever you end up doing, have a great time and enjoy this week’s round-up of favorites.

Friday Favorites Weekly Blog Round-up South by Northwest.
1. I’m all about the budget buys (who isn’t?). I’m loving several of the Old Navy picks on Glitter Guide’s list of affordable buys for February.
.
2. These silly Olaf cookies made me laugh. This DIY from Handmade Charlotte is a good reminder that a fun cookie project doesn’t have to be hard.
.
3. Authenticity online is something I think about a lot as I post here and on social media. Brittany, from A Healthy Slice of Life, shared some candid thoughts on the topic this week.
.
4. Tassels are just so much fun! I’m pretty excited that they’re in style this season. Anna James’ style guide post on Lauren Conrad is going to be my go-to resource for ways to incorporate them into my wardrobe.
.
5. February is Black History Month. While we all know about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, there are so many modern civil rights activists who continue to drive progress forward. If you have some time, I encourage you to watch The Interrupters, a documentary highlighting the work of Ameena Matthews and others to end youth violence in Chicago.

Friday Favorites

Today I’m sharing this week’s favorites from Allentown, PA. We came out to attend a funeral and are staying an extra day to spend time with Nick’s family. Funerals are a funny thing: the conflicting feelings of sadness over the loss of life combined with the happiness that comes from reuniting with family and friends. Since moving out to Seattle, it’s been harder to see Nick’s family, so I’m thankful for every extra moment we get with them. Have a great weekend. Hope you’re spending it with the ones you love!

1. By now, most of you should know that pie is one of my all time favorite foods. Berry, chocolate, pumpkin, quiche…I love it all. Imagine my pure joy when I came across PieGram, a business built entirely around mailing people pies. Why didn’t I think of that?! #dreamjob

2. If PieGrams aren’t going to cut it as gifts for the whole family, check out Real Simple’s new holiday gifting service: Giftable. It helps you track holidays and collect gift ideas throughout the year.
.
3. I’m a sucker for holiday movies, the Hallmark ones in particular. I love the cheesy story lines and the cookie cutter leading men. I’m looking forward to spending the rest of this month checking off some of the movies on this playlist.
.
4. Everyone has their go-to cookie recipes they bring out every Christmas season. My good friend’s mom always makes the famed Neiman Marcus cookie recipe. After six or seven years of being gone, I’m looking forward to stopping by soon for a cup of coffee and a cookie or two.
.
5. I love Lauren Conrad’s Ladies Who Laptop series. This month’s interview highlights Jordan Jones, the creative mind behind Packed Party and The Doorstep Necklace.

XOXO,
Jules
