Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, everybody! It’s been a tiring week and I’m looking forward to spending some quality time in bed this weekend. Apart from that, I’ll be unpacking some more, trying a new brunch place, and enjoying some yummy bites at the Taste of Main. Meanwhile, Jules is backpacking through the Enchantments with some friends who are visiting from out of town. What about you guys? Any cool plans for the weekend? Let’s kick things off with a few fun links!

1. Feeling a little meh about work lately? Here’s a roundup of 15 career books to inspire you. (A Cup of Jo)

2. These ideas for keeping fit while you travel made me think of Jules, who dutifully went running every morning of our beach vacation while I slept in like a slacker. (World of Wanderlust)

3. Who among us hasn’t dreamed of staying in the world’s most Instagram-worthy boutique hotels? (Fathom)

4. The return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte is nearly upon us, and Starbucks says they’ll be ditching the artificial fillers in favor of actual pumpkin. Woohoo! Let’s hope the deliciousness wasn’t in the caramel coloring. (Refinery29)

5. Fear the Walking Dead premieres this Sunday and I cannot wait! You can watch the opening scene now, which contains our very first walker sighting. Who else is excited for the beginning of the zombie apocalypse? (Vulture)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Eye Candy: Spectacular Swimming Pools Around the World

A couple of weekends ago, in the midst of Seattle’s big heat wave, my friend Sarah and I had a [heat] stroke of genius and decided to spend the day at the public pool. We passed a very pleasant afternoon sunbathing, swimming, and fighting children for pool noodles. But incredibly satisfying though it was, the experience left me daydreaming of something a little more glamorous…a pool with a swim-up bar and cliffside views, perhaps? Here are a few stunning pools around the world where I plan to spend my summers when I win the lottery. (Don’t worry, you can all join me! I’ll fly you out on my private airline where all the seats are in first class.)

On second thought, I might just use my lottery winnings to buy The Raleigh and live there. Have you hit the pool yet this summer? More importantly, do you have a membership at a sweet private pool with a flexible guest policy? Hint, hint…
