Friday Favorites Round-Up

"life is beautiful" print 
TGIF for real everyone! Having not worked a full week since late November, it was hard getting back into the swing of things and the frigid (-1 on Thursday) temps did not help at all, but it's Friday and that means favorites!! It seriously feels like ages since I've linked up with Amanda to share my favorites from the week so I'm excited to get right to it!!! 

Favorite Recipe

I pinned a ton of new recipes this week and hope to make them all at some point, but the Zucchini noodles with pesto piqued my interest the most since I am trying to use my spiralizer a lot! 

Favorite Video 

Vogue does it again with their 73 questions series and this time it's with Victoria Beckham. The beginning is a little awkward with the hug/handshake situation that occurred, but the rest is pure posh gold! 

Favorite New Find

My friend Erica introduced me to MantraBands this week and these bracelets are just perfect. When a company's motto is "because positive thinking leads to a positive and happy life" I'm on board!! I'm stuck between "dream bigger" and "she believed she could, so she did."

Favorite Hairstyle

I've been on a "do more with my hair" kick lately and stumbled upon this gorgeous style. There are actually three in this video link and she shows how to do all of them. 

Favorite Links

+John Legend & Crissy Teigen give a home tour
+ The best protein sources we should all be eating
+ 15 things exceptional people think every day
+ LG debuted it's twin wash model yesterday - two loads of laundry at the same time! 

I'm excited for the weekend, but mostly because the Golden Globes will be airing on Sunday night!! Will you be watching? See you back here Monday for Weekending! 

Also linking up with Christina and Liz

  5. I saw that Victoria Beckham video the other day and it's pretty funny--like you said, pure posh gold haha
    How do you like your spiralizer? Ive seen so many recipes that use it and Ive been curious, I just haven't gotten one. A washing machine with two loads??? Sign me up!!!! :)
    That hair style would look fab on you! Love it!
    Have a great Friday and weekend girly!!

  6. This full work week has been totally brutal (especially with the frigid temps!). Great picks this week - I've been trying ton convince myself I need to get a vegetable spiralizer and just pinned that recipe, so hopefully after a couple more pins, I'll take the plunge and get one - haha! I've never heard of those bracelets before, but I love them! They remind me a bit of the Kate Spade idiom bangles but I love how these are in gold - they'd mix great with my Alex and Ani stack. Hope you have a great weekend love! xoxo, - M @ The Sequin Notebook

  7. Oh my gosh! I just got a Vegetable spiralizer and I am obsessed!!! I have pinned about a million recipes, and I can't wait to try all of them. It's the best thing ever!

  10. OMG LOVE those bracelets! I'd have a hard time just choosing one too but I really love the She Believed She Could So She Did. I wore a little side braid in my hair today but I wish it looked like that girl's... my braiding skills are lacking for sure. Happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ok tons of great stuff...that hair? I love it! I am/have been in a hair rut for far too long and need to just do more with it. I might need to check out some tutorials over the weekend! And that Posh interview was great...I love her. It doesn't hurt that her husband is amazing.... =) And those bracelets are fab...I have been looking at some stackables and might have to add one of these to my arm. Have such a great day girlfriend!

  15. WOW Victoria actually speaks!?! I think this is the first time in a very long time that I've heard her speak. I was at the gym last night on the elliptical and I was watching E News and they had part of the interview on there, I was shocked that she actually spoke. Anyways, I need to get a spiralizer, where did you get it from? How do you like it? Is it easy to use?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybe it's my Sicilian blood talking, but I LOVE pesto. So yummy!!!!!

  19. I'm looking for new zoodle recipes so pinning that one for sure! Thanks for sharing the VB 73 questions. I love those even though they are totally staged and seem awkward! I'm super obsessed with Chrissy Teigen but didn't know about her home tour!! Going to watch it now!

  21. I've had a spiralizer on my list for about a year now, but am stuck between trying a cheap one, and just getting the expensive will last forever one. Decisions, decisions haha.

    Love that hair style and those bracelets, so pretty. I say get DREAM BIGGER, because 1] the other saying is around a lot and 2] it tells you want to do and is a reminder of an action! Just my thoughts!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the mantra bracelets! I say get both! Hope you're staying warm and have a fabulous weekend!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  23. Happy Friday! Loving that hair style! We will be watching the globes also but usually love the before action on the red carpet. We definitely need to get a spiralizer! Why didn't we think to put that on our Christmas list?!?! Have a great weekend xo Winks and Eyerolls

  24. I love Crissy Teigen so much her insta and twitter crack me up! Oh I want to try that new braid tutorial! Definitely love those mantra bracelets.

  69. ah I love that video of Victoria! She's so smart and sassy. I remember reading an article she interviewed for a couple of years ago and loved how witty she is. I think people who don't get a chance to hear her side mistaken her non-smile face for a sour personality but, she's great! =)

    and that "pasta" looks DELICIOUS!
