Friday Favorites | Last Of August

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week and the last Friday of August is here! Today is a bittersweet day as it's the last day for me at my current job and Monday I'll be starting fresh on a new career path with a great company!! There will be a few growing pains around here (mostly for myself as I get situated into my new routine- blog post anyone?!), but I've been busy writing and have so many great ideas and posts ready to roll!! Enough rambling for right now, let's get to some favorites with Amanda and April

Favorite New Read

Having just finished The Royal We - which by the way is totally worth all the hype that it got - I was in the market for a new book. Thankfully this review of Everybody Rise came out and I knew I had to read it!! It's also been picked up to be made into a movie by the same producer as Devil Wears Prada! Have you read it yet?!
 

Favorite Song

It's been out for quite some time, but I can't stop listening to Fight Song, but Rachel Platten. I feel like it's perfect for anything going on in your life...wanting a new job, getting over a break up, thinking of making a change - it totally works to get you excited!!! I also love that my oldest niece and I jam out to this when we're together! 

Favorite Drink

I discovered that I liked Moscow Mules last year - late to the party on that one. I stumbled upon this recipe for Moscow Mule Jello Shots - YUM! 

Favorite Blogging Articles

I add a lot of blogging related to my pinterest board, but hardly have time to read it, but these two posts were quick and easy to get through! If you struggle with what to charge for sponsored posts, then read this! Easy rule of thumb!  Similarly I have a Google+ page, but have apparently been using it the wrong way!! 

Favorite Links

//New month means new wallpaper on my screens - love the flamingos! 
// Which celebrity has the best street style
// Listen to Rachel Zoe go through her resume - you never know where your passion will lead you! 

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you back here Monday for weekending!

  21. I haven't even thought of the word "jello shot" since I was about 25! Hahahaha! Moscow Mules are delish though. I absolutely can't STAND that song, lol! Dallas is a new music market, so we get songs on our radio before most the county (maybe to test how popular it will become?). I've been listening to that dang song every three minutes for the last 6 months and would pay to never hear it again!

  22. Moscow Mules are my favorite drink! In fact, some friends just gave me copper mugs for my birthday. Don't feel bad...we just starting drinking them this past NYE! Best of luck with your new job!

  54. If you're feeling lazy, there is a decent canned version of the Moscow Mule. I think it is made by Four Loko.

  72. I've never heard of Moscow Mules, but I will see upon trying it! It looks very delicious. At first, I thought it was some kind of a mock-up margarita. Is that how it would taste like?
