Hello there friends, and happy Friday!
It’s been a few weeks of heavy hearts and heavier conversations. This week, I’m taking a break from it all because honestly, we could all use just a bit of levity, don’t you think? Today I’m keeping it light on the chit chat, but don’t forget to remember those in need with this list of where to donate in the wake of all the crisises in the world right now:
Where to donate for Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
Where to donate for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
And, here’s how you can help Mexico earthquake victims.
Today I’m in Bend, Oregon. I’ve never been here but ever since my mom and dad visited a few years ago, and then when my friend Sandy moved here (I’m obsessed with her Instagram stories), I got the itch to make my way for a visit. And now I’m here!
Sandy is hosting a little blogging retreat at the stunning Sunriver Resort for a few of us bloggers who’ve known one another for a while now and need an excuse to reconnect. THANK YOU Sandy and Sunriver for getting us all back under the same roof, and giving us the inspiration to get out there and live!
But enough about me, let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves. Happy weekend everyone!
Also, I don’t think I could love Kristen Bell any more. I mean how sweet is this?!
How you do rosé come fall. SANGRIA me baby!
This shrimp…keep the Spanish flavors flowing!
45 unique restaurants around the world you should visit once in your life. #8 and #23 just might blow my mind.
Parents, rejoice: Disney World is getting a WINE BAR!
Can’t wait to put this soup on the stove.
and speaking of getting cheesy…
I’m always a sucker for a no-bake cheesecake. This gorgeous beauty looks heavenly.
and since my sweet tooth is apparently in full force…
I’m definitely baking these cookies very, very soon.
I agree, this is so wrong. No. Just…no.
and on that note…
Mayo in coffee. ew.
4 apple recipes that make me want to run to the nearest orchard and do some damage:
- Apple Spice Scones
- Greek Yogurt Apple Streusel Muffins
- Honey crisp & Apple Cider Bourbon Shrub
- Vanilla Spiced Apples
I witnessed the most stunning rainbow on Wednesday morning on my way for a coffee after dropping off Smudge and Katie at school. I literally gasped, then I drove from one side of my neighborhood to the other to get the best look and simply savor in it’s simplistic beauty. Sometimes we just need something else out there to hope for, am I right?
Good creepy reads for fall. So many books, so little time!
and speaking of…
I’m SO excited for this fall reboot! #justjack
I’m counting down the days til’ Halloween and I’m digging the dia de los Mueres theme.
This is hilarious, and so true, and now I want to go watch Something’s Gotta Give for the hundredth time. #nancymeyersfan
An important message for millennials. #nailedit
Totally ready for this Lady Gaga documentary.

This IKEA hack is brilliant.
This is too good! Have you met your museum doppelgänger yet?
Everyone’s going bonkers for this mascara. Has anyone tried it?
Also, I’m thinking I need to give this nude lip gloss a try.
Loving these booties for fall.
And I need this tote (that cranberry color is perfecto).
This dress is on my wish list. It looks so comfy too!
The sleeves on this pretty top are so fun!
And I’m pretty darn psyched for this new design line at Target (I’m obsessed with the Gaines fam).
That’s it my friends! Have a fab weekend and here’s to fall flavors and cooler weather!
