Friday Favorites | It's Officially Spring

Happy Friday!! It's been quite the week and I'm so happy that today is officially the start of Spring, even though Mother Nature has a funny way of showing it with some snow flurries later tonight! I've already spent far too much time chatting about weather this year, so let's get right to my favorites! Linking up with Amanda and Liz


Favorite Outfit

Tell me this doesn't just scream spring to you!! Mint, floral and bright! 

Favorite Recipe

I have a confession to make...anytime a restaurant has lobster mac & cheese on the menu I need to have it! Do I always order no...but if I could make it at home and know exactly what I was putting in I would feel less guilty eating it!!


Favorite New App

So last week it was Wunderlist and this week it's Next Issue! Thankfully my friend Stephanie introduced me to this app that allows you to view monthly or weekly magazines on your ipad without having to subscribe to all of them! The way it works...your first month is free and then after that you pay $9.99 for monthly magazines (Self, Instyle, etc) or $14.99 which includes the monthlies + weekly mags (US Weekly, People, etc). I think it's brilliant and I'm hooked! It's perfect for the gym, travelling and even sitting on the couch...there are so many features you have with the digital versions that you don't have in the print!  You can also share it with up to 5 different devices! 

Favorite New Shop

My friend Claire over at Fashion and Feathers embarked on a new journey recently and started her very own Etsy Shop!! She is offering B~Loved Boston readers a discount for one week with the code BLOVEDBOSTON10 for any items featured in The Studio. The gold foil is so pretty and I can't wait to re-do our little office space to get the #DoWork sign hung!

That's a wrap for this week! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  10. Oooh I love all those colors in that spring outfit and can't wait to pull out my spring/summer wardrobe. Just went and bought some new spring nail polishes that I'm putting on this weekend even though there is still an 8 foot mountain of snow outside my window. Maybe it's down to 7 feet now...thinking positive here! Love those hairstyles too. I don't know why, but I always feel more inspired to do my hair up all pretty in the spring and summer. Happy Friday!

  15. Love that Hello Spring graphic and that Spring outfit!! I've tried crab mac and cheese and I wasn't a fan, but I think if I could have controlled the bread crumbs on top I would have liked it, definitely checking out that recipe! Happy Friday!

  16. I love that spring cardigan! I also love the colored jeans that go with it, but I've only found one pair of colored jeans that work for me... And guess what?! They were maternity. J Brand maternity, but maternity nonetheless. Go figure.

  17. I love that mint outfit! So crisp and clean! I also love mac & cheese, we went to a new tapas restaurant recently that had truffle mac and cheese and while everyone else got the arugula salad, I ate every last bit of that mac! Have a great weekend!

I love floral prints and bright colored clothing hehe. I hope that you have a fantastic weekend lady!!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love that outfit! I cannot believe that it is cold and will snow later today. I'm so over it and over my puffy coat. I have grown to dislike that coat so much. LOL. Have a wonderful weekend.

  32. One of my girlfriends at work just bought that springy sweater from Target and everytime I see her in it, I'm like "I need that!" Love the mint!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That outfit is adorable!! I'm not usually a fan of cardigan's but that floral one is too good!! Especially paired with mint pants!
    Happy Spring, girl! The weather will be cooperating before you know it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the mint bag! The lobster mac and cheese looks good but not sure how I'd like it. I LOVE lobster (at least when I'm home to visit and can drive down to the docks and pick it up- I refuse to get it elsewhere) but we always just boil it and eat! We have to make special accomodations for Scott because he requires melted butter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I love that cardigan in the outfit picture you posted. So perfect for warmer, happy weather. It's SPRING!! :)

  36. Love your print from Clarie, all of her stuff is so cute!! Lobster mac & cheese - yum! I love to order it too and the outfit is sooo pretty! Happy weekend (and spring!)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am loving that Spring outfit!! Makes me want to go shopping :) My sister lives up North as well & woke up to snow - I know you'll be so happy when Spring weather finally arrives!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. That sounds like a great app to get all your magazines in one place- I feel like I never read them anymore because I'm always reading something else (aka medical stuff). They will definitely come in handy during pool season though. Have a fab Friday!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  39. YES, to that entire outfit! So pretty and definitely screams spring! We had snow in the forecast for today and I was positive they were going to be wrong but it has been snowing all morning :( so sad! Next Issue sounds like such a cool concept!

    ReplyDelete
  40. That outfit is gorgeous! I love lobster mac and cheese but I can't ever seem to make it like the restaurants do! I hope you have a great weekend

  41. I love anything floral for spring :) And that app sounds pretty cool! I am weird about magazines and like to have the glossy pictures in my hand, but that is a great way to get a lot of different ones all at once! Mmmmm lobster mac and cheese looks delicious!

    I really just want to walk barefoot across that rug in the NYC apartment! It reminds me that I want to get some fresh flowers for our house, and I love that she has an elephant too! Have a great weekend!

  42. I'm a magazine NUT so I totally need to check out that app!
    I want that purse from that outfit pic!

  43. I would die for some lobster mac and cheese right now!!! One of my favorite things ever. Yay for spring!!! No more snow for you guys, enough already! Have a great weekend!

  44. I am so ready for spring to arrive in Maryland!

  45. B - you should totally try to make a less fatty lobster mac & cheese! Think low fat cheeses, panko bread crumbs, etc. If you do that I will be your best friend forever! Hehe! I love that Spring outfit btw! I cant wait to start having warm enough weather for it to really feel like Spring! My daughter bought all new Spring clothes with my Mother in Law yesterday and she had a nervous breakdown this morning when I wouldn't let her wear mint-colored capri pants today. She didn't care that it is supposed to snow. Lol! Okay, well have a fabulous weekend! xo

  50. I am loving that cardigan, investment link, and NYC apartment tour. I have been seeing that RUG everywhere and I want it.. but at the same time don't want it because everyone has it. It seems so versatile though and I am totally on the market for a new area rug. Happy Spring! I hope the sun comes out for you this weekend even if there are some snow flurries! =)

  57. YES to investing. Maybe because I work in the financial industry, but it's so important! Love the gorgeous spring print and your friend's work in her etsy shop is gorgeous! Once I get my hands on the 6+ for my bday that magazine app is as good as bought ;) Have a wonderful weekend!
