Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, lovelies! What are you up to this weekend? My week has been crazy busy, and I’m thoroughly looking forward to a low-key weekend. My plans are to sleep in ridiculously late, catch up with some dear friends…and oh yes, check out Jules’ new pad! She and her husband found a place so quickly that I’m pretty much convinced they are real estate wizards. I’m sure she’ll be giving you the full scoop soon, but until then, you can pass the time with some of my favorite links from the week. Enjoy!

Friday Faves 1.16.15

1. These 7 at-home tips will help you achieve glowing skin without spending a fortune on fancy treatments. (

2. Proper English ladies + a lewd American card game = hilarity. Watch the women of Downton Abbey play a round of Cards Against Humanity (it’s totally worth it just to hear Mrs. Hughes utter the words “bitch slap”). (

3. These fresh decorating ideas have me in the mood for an apartment overhaul. (

4. On a related note, did you resolve to de-clutter your life this year? I’m intrigued by this Japanese approach to closet organization. It seems a little drastic, but highly effective! (

5. Now that Christmas is over, my kitchen is sadly devoid of baked goods. This recipe for Brooklyn Blackout Cupcakes is just what I need to pull me out of my post-holiday baking funk. (

BONUS: This attempt at scheduling a night out with a friend is the funniest thing I’ve read all week! (“We are, like, the subprime lending crisis of hanging out.”) Go read it, then share it with that one friend who’s always impossible to pin down for happy hour. (

Have a fabulous weekend!

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!

friday faves 1121

1. Does seasonal affective disorder have you feeling wanderlusty? Check out these 12 countries you can visit for less than $50 a day. (

2. This article delves into the prevalence of archaeologists working as spies during WWI. Two of the coolest professions combined! (

3. Step aside, pumpkin spice latte, the bacon spice latte is here. (

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!
