Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends! How was your week? Mine has been pretty relaxed, with the exception of filing my taxes (always a soul-crushing experience). In other news, if you haven’t seen this hilarious video of two guys tricking their little sister into thinking the zombie apocalypse has arrived, you need to watch it right now. I’ll wait. Pretty good, right? Now, please enjoy a few of my favorite links from the week!

Friday Favorites

1. If you have a vacation coming up, check out Grace Atwood’s travel tips. This girl is always on a plane to somewhere awesome, so she knows her stuff! (The Stripe)

2. These are the 20 most popular places on Earth, according to Instagram’s geotagging. How many have you visited? (Refinery29)

3. Working out is the worst, but some of these unique fitness classes look really interesting. I’d totally try underwater spinning! (Glitter Guide)

4. Whether you’re plagued by redness or undereye circles, there’s a perfect concealer out there for every possible skin concern. (A Girl, Obsessed)

5. I desperately need this glorious tomato, peach & burrata salad in my life. (Two Peas and Their Pod)

Have a wonderful weekend!

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.

XOXO,

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.

Friday Favorites 9.18.15 // South by Northwest

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!

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!
