Friday Round-Up

Here we are again with another weekend upon us and no one is complaining!! Hoping to squeeze the last little bits out of summer this weekend, seeing as Boston has decided to cool of this last week! Linking up with Amanda to share some favorites! 

Favorite App
Thanks to my friend Jess for the introduction into this photo editor app! I know there are a ton of editor apps out there, but this one is free and it's like having the magic of Photoshop at your fingertips with every picture. So far I've used it for flower photos and some food pictures, but I love playing with all the filters, settings and editing features it has! 

Favorite Recipe
This is less recipe and more just ingredients. I've been looking to incorporate avocado into pretty much everything these days, and I'll sub out the real bacon for turkey bacon for an easy morning breakfast...maybe with a side of eggs! 

Favorite Video
This video has been shared by thousands of people now, but in case you haven't watched it yet - this is what the "challenge" is all about - raising awareness for a debilitating disease with no cure yet! It starts out like most other Bucket Challenge videos, but if you have a few minutes, watch the entire video. 

Favorite Giveaway(s)


Well that would be two this week - but a big congratulations to Kerry from Til Then Smile Often on winning the lip gloss set from Gloss48! I'll be in touch shortly! Also, you still have a few more hours to enter the Tory Burch Giveaway

Favorite Pin
My little bar cart dreams are coming true, slowly but surely - we aren't going the conventional route - but instead doing this Ikea DIY Hack for a bar cart and after another stellar find on Craigslist by Gary (and another trip to IKEA we don't have to make) this little guy will be put together in the next few weeks!! Can't wait to style it!! 

Favorite Links
+Elle's feature with Audrey Hepburn's Granddaughter
+Loved this fun take on how to nab Kate Middleton's Style 
+Really fun and easy DIY
+Totally Unique Getting Ready attire for brides and bridesmaids from Wedding Party - written by yours truly! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here Monday for Weekending and another awesome Giveaway!!

  21. That toast looks really good. Watch out for turkey bacon though, I read on Women's Health that there can be a lot of fillers in it. Try the black forest bacon at Trader Joe's too. :-) I'll have to watch that video some time, that bar cart is cute. I wonder what kind of stories Audrey's granddaughter has about her!! She's a beautiful girl too. And oh the Dutchess always looks so flawless, love her. :-) I hope that you have a fab weekend lady! :-)
