Friday Favorites Round Up

Happy Friday friends! Has this week felt long or what?! I'm so excited to be linking up with Amanda and April, especially since I wasn't able to share my favorites last week! I'm also really excited to finally meet Kate this weekend since she's going to be here for just one night! Here are some of my favorites this week! 

Favorite Recipe

I like lettuce wraps, but struggle with what to put in them - that was until I found this recipe for Baked Asian Chicken Meatball lettuce wraps! I can't wait to make these soon! I might not even have time to put them in the lettuce and eat them as is! 

Favorite Purchase

I saw a blogger on instagram sporting these loafers and I had to have them! They come in 6 different colors and I'm happy I was able to scoop up the pink ones before they sold out in my size- you can't beat the price of $21!!! If you're like my mom you're probably wondering - what are you going to wear that with? Well...jeans, pants - really anything that will allow me to wear them so yes even leggings haha! 

Favorite Read

I was flipping through US Weekly and saw this book as a must read - I'll admit the cover is what got me hooked first. I started reading on Monday and finished by Thursday - could not put it down! Maybe in Another Life is such a differently written book. You have Hannah a 29 year-old at a cross roads in her life and moving back to the only home she's ever known in LA. The book alternates chapters by her choosing one path over the other and it's really fascinating because you find yourself pulling equally for both lives. I'll just end this very brief review by saying - I cried...I read the last page of the acknowledgements the author wrote and I cried! It was as good on the last page as it was on the first! 

Favorite Song


File this one away for get's stuck in your head and you end up bopping to it all day long!! P.S. How gorgeous does Demi Lovato look in the video!

//Anything that doesn't require oven time is a winner in my book - these no bake cake batter truffles look delicious! 

//How do you feel about matching sets? I sort of love them! 

//I dished on my love for Jillian Harris a few weeks ago and looks like Lauren Conrad agrees because she has an interview on her site this week! 

Happy weekend friends!! See you back here Monday for Weekending!

  1. How fun you get to meet Kate this weekend! I already chatted with her about how I want to crash the paryt, hahaha. Darn flights not being cheap enough on the fly. Have a great time!

    Those shoes look amazing, I am totally checking them out. I had no idea matching sets were on trend, does that mean mixing patterns is out again? I actually loved that trend!

    Adding that book to my reading list, it sounds like something right up my alley. As do those truffles, give me all the truffles! Happy Friday, pretty!
