Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, one and all! What are you up to this weekend? Jules and I are looking forward to a delicious brunch with Asa and Tina, two of our favorite blogger buddies. Also on my to do list is a viewing of The Martian and curling up on the couch with October’s book club pick. (We’re reading The Shining in honor of Halloween – have you read it?) Anyway, I hope you enjoy these links that I’ve lovingly compiled for you from across the interwebs!

Friday Favorites // South by Northwest

1. In case The Devil Wears Prada wasn’t conclusive enough, one magazine editor is revealing exactly how traumatic it is to be interviewed by Anna Wintour: “I’ve had breakups with men I actually liked that took less out of me emotionally.” (Racked)

2. You guys. I have found a recipe for broccoli cheddar soup with fried cheese curds. I repeat: this soup has FRIED CHEESE CURDS IN IT. (Half Baked Harvest)

3. This new collaboration between NARS and fashion photographer Steven Klein looks awesome. I’ll take one of everything, please! (Refinery29)

4. My feet have been ravaged by summer frolicking (worth it), and this pedicure hack involving crushed aspirin and lemon juice sounds like a promising fix. (Byrdie)

5. These 31 reasons to throw a party for no reason are an inspiration. #23 is so Jules, and #25 is pretty much the only excuse I need! (Domaine)

Have an amazing weekend…and maybe throw an impromptu party!

Hooray for Friday! How was your week? Seattle is settling into fall, which means it’s grey and drizzly here and all I want to do is stay inside, get cozy on the couch and watch half a season of Gilmore Girls in one sitting. But I’ll have to put my ambitious Netflix plans on hold, because Jules and I are getting up at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning and heading to Nordstrom for their Fall Beauty Trend Show. As always, I’m going to require copious amounts of coffee, but I can’t wait! Now let’s kick off the weekend with some fun links.

1. Why don’t we party like we used to? This piece delves into the death of the party in modern culture. Unsurprisingly, technology may be to blame. (New York Times)

2. Mindy Kaling is our girl crush/spirit animal, so naturally we are super excited to read her new book! (Amazon)

3. I plan to relish the last few days of summer with this scrumptious peach crumble…AKA the last non-pumpkin thing I’ll be baking for awhile. (Paper & Stitch)

4. This guide to the best coffee shops in Seattle includes a few places I’ve never tried, which means a day of caffeine-fueled exploration is in my near future. (Domino)

5. The title of this one says it all: What I Instagrammed vs. What Was Really Happening, or Why My Entire Life is a Lie. Ha! (Bustle)

Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

What a long, strange week it’s been! What are you up to this weekend? Jules and I are both excited to relax and unwind in our own ways…while she communes with nature on the Olympic peninsula, I’ll be learning how to make macarons at this French cooking school and binge watching the new season of Orange is the New Black. (Jules, bring me back some s’mores and I’ll save you some macarons, ok?) Now let’s get the weekend started with a few boredom-busting 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!
