Friday Favorites

Happy Friday all!! It's been a pretty social week for me - more so than normal and I was able to grab dinner with a good friend who recently got engaged and had a delicious dinner with some girl friends last night!! I'm ready to tackle some to-do's for the weekend and excited because my hair is going to be getting some much needed love!! 

The blog sale still has some great stuff available for grabs for today!! 

Linking up with my girl Amanda for some favorites of the week! 
Favorite Opening
H&M on Newbury Street just went through a very long remodel and opened it's doors yesterday! The new interior is amazing, but what's got me really excited is their Home section. The best way to explain the style is a higher end Ikea and lower end West Elm...if that makes sense!! Their home section has been available via their website since 2013, but it's only now that we actually get to see it in person!! 

Favorite Dinner
I had a girls night on Thursday and we went to Piattini on Newbury Street- it was so good!! My friend and I split the risotto bolognese and then we split the chocolate tort - decadent for sure, but you feel less guilty when you're splitting food - RIGHT?!

Favorite New Blog
I could be the last person to have stumbled onto this- but Tori Spelling has a blog. And contrary to how her life plays out in the media - she is with it on the blog! Sure celebrities blogging is nothing new, but she has some great tips for hosting parties and dinner recipes. Similar to Lauren Conrad's blog - she has guest contributors as well! 

Favorite Look
How cute does Katie Holmes look in this midi dress?! Love it with the pony tail and fresh make-up! Work and date night appropriate for sure! 

Favorite Links

+This baby absolutely loving Katy Perry's Dark Horse - I've watched this video at least a dozen times
40 people who look eerily like celebrities!!
+Natalia shared this Everygirl article - it's a pretty great read
+ 20 iPhone hacks...totally didn't know about #4 & #16!!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and see you back here Monday for some Weekending shenanigans!!

  3. I absolutely love all your favorites this week! I had no clue that H&M had a home section - I definitely will be perusing that online this weekend. Tori Spelling's blog is awesome - I absolutely love it for all her party planning ideas! I need to visit that celebrity look-a-like link ... that guy looks just like Ryan Gosling! Yes, please. :) Have a great weekend, doll!

  4. Your dinner has me drooling, delicious! We just had a H&M open in our mall, I've yet to really go in and look, but I'm wondering if it has a home section - I'd love to look around. Have a great weekend lady! xx

  13. oh wow, Katie Holmes looks stunning! oooh H&M has been remodeled right before I come to visit? awesome sauce. Don't think I'll be buying any home stuff though, haha. um, splitting food means the calories don't count. The risotto looks amazing, I couldn't split that #fatty.

  14. girrrrrrrl, I need see H& M home in person!!!

  15. That risotto looks amazing! I've never had risotto with meat in it. I definitely feel less guilty if I split food with someone haha. H&M home sounds great, maybe they'll do that here too. Is that Ryan Gosseling in that picture? I had a dream that Chris turned into him haha. I watched Katie Holmes on Kelly & Michael and she had that dress on. I think she looks fab. It was also nice to see her with a personality again after nutty Tom Cruise!!! Have a fab weekend lady!!

  34. Can't wait to check out those hacks. Hopefully it will be enough distraction from that risotto. And the fact that if I hadn't met my husband, I could have been Mrs. (Almost) Gosling (kidding...). Happy weekend :)

  36. Ummm I had no idea they had a home section. Such news to me! Also my new dessert trick with myself is telling my boyfriend "I mean if you get it, i'll have, like a bite" when it is a total 50/50 split.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I didn't know H&M had home goods. I'll have to check it out. Katie's dress is gorgeous, love that nude shoes too. That last quote is so true!

    ReplyDelete

  40. Pretty much just nodded my head along to this entire post. Katie was on Kelly & Michael the other day in that outfit and when she walked out I was just like HOW does she look SO genuine and so young!! I loved that her makeup and outfit were just so normal, if that makes sense.

    That video of the kid with the Dark Horse song killed me. My husband and I watched about a gazillion times in a row! Happy Friday!

  41. H&M HAS A HOME SECTION?! All caps necessary. What great news!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I've never seen an H&M with a home section! Although I've only been to H&M once so I guess it's not that surprising that I didn't know. Haha :) Those little twins are adorable! I always like finding the iphone hacks! Doens't it make you wonder why they don't have a damn cheat book with the phone when you buy it?! Glad you had a good week! That dessert looks fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Good to know about Tori Spelling's blog. I'm gonna hop over and check it out. Happy weekend lady!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oooh I'm about to hop on over to Tori's blog now! Somehow I got sucked into her True Tori tv show...omggg

    ReplyDelete
  45. That baby is absolutely hilarious.. I've watched it tons of times too. And I never even knew H&M had a home department. They are about to open a big one in one of our malls so maybe it will have one too! Enjoy your Friday lady!

    ReplyDelete
  46. That last quote is one of my favorites ever! And that H&M home business looks pretty awesome

    ReplyDelete
  47. husband and i are biking around town tonight. maybe i can convince him to make a pit-stop at H&M. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Not even lying, reading that last quote gave me goosebumps. I think I needed it right now as I'm coming to a sort of emotional crossroads, which I'm sure doesn't make any sense to say haha. But yeah, I loved it. And also, I have never realized H&M has a home section online! The store near me doesn't but now I might be addicted to the site. Good thing I have a move coming up and an excuse to buy things for the new space! Thanks!! :) have a great weekend love!

    ReplyDelete
  49. every single time I watch that baby I just get happy. How could you not?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Great links! I am so excited to check out the home sections at H&M I had no idea!

  54. I had no idea about a lot of those iphone hacks! Last week I just realized you can slide the text message over to see the exact time it was sent! I had no idea that was possible! I need to check and see if any of our H&M's have the home section in store, it would be so fun to look through some of what they have!
