Fabulous Friday Round UP

Happy Friday friends!! Made it through another work week & the bonus is this time next week I'll be enjoying some much warmer weather with Amanda in New Orleans, oh and cheering on our Gators!! I've had a pretty busy week and these are the things that have helped me get through it - some favorites below! 
via

Favorite Song 

While I realize the song isn't really new anymore - it's new to me because I heard it for the first time going home from an event this week! Ellie can seriously do no wrong in my book - except for the video, I just don't get it!! But the song - I'm obsessed!! 

Favorite Dinner

This past Tuesday I was invited to taste the new Samuel Adams Oktoberfest Schnitzel burger at the Hard Rock Cafe Boston and was treated to some pretty amazing brews from Samuel Adams Brewery - including their Oktoberfest beer! It's a pretty brilliant pairing! While I'm not a beer drinker in the least - this was surprisingly good and I'm always happy to enjoy something that is local to Boston! 
Yes we were given two full size burgers - needed to be rolled out! 
In addition to having this new menu release Hard Rock Boston (and all Hard Rocks) are fighting breast cancer through their 16th annual PINKTOBER®  campaign through the month. 
Proceeds from the sale of PINKTOBER® merchandise benefit the cause with 75 percent of pin sales and 15 percent of T-shirts, scarf, bathrobe and sheet set sales going directly to breast cancer research efforts. I'll be sporting my t-shirt & pink Ellie Fund bracelet all month! 

Favorite New E-Mail Addition


If you're like me then you're on your email constantly and probably corresponding with brands or potential people you'd like to work with for your blog or business. I wanted to have a more professional looking signature on my B~Loved Email and saw that a few bloggers who have pretty legit businesses had this one from WiseStamp. The one I chose is free and you can customize it pretty nicely adding in a lot of social media icons for people to easily follow you. It links seamlessly through your g-mail and you can turn it on or off as you wish. Sidenote- While I was testing it out I may have accidentally emailed some of you with it - but going forward it will be used for communications with brands and people that want to collaborate. 

Favorite Find - Weekender Bags

I feel like I could dedicate an entire post to weekender bags alone because I love them so much yet don't actually have any, but I'm sort of stuck between a few! Similarly to a lot of you I'm sure, we take a lot of weekend trips to see family, friends & even just to get away and lugging a few bags or even worse an actual piece of luggage is not ideal - so I'm stuck between this Lo & Son's bag as well as this one from Sole Society. I love the ones that have a dedicated spot for shoes so that it doesn't take away room for clothes! I'm also a little obsessed with this Henri Bendel weekender! Side note - I was a pro at packing for weekends away in college since I went home so frequently but I have no clue what bag I used! 

Favorite Links

+ How to make Monday's not suck - maybe we should all read this again on Sunday night! 
+ This is literally my dream office space
+ I can't tell you how many times I've looked to Elle & Co. Blog for business advice or even great tips - well she did it again with 24 time saving hacks - the one's for G-mail are amazing! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend - see you back here Monday for weekending! 

Also linking up with April & Christina

  1. Great round up! That burger looks absolutly amazing. Sam Adams has a great Oktoberfest beer too - I'm so missing the Oktoberfest beer at home. Ironicly the Oktoberfest beer here in Germany is (ironcally) not very good. I'm so loving those weekender bags especially the two grey versions - and so jealous you'll be in NO - I love that city!

  2. Umm that burger looks amazing! I seriously want it! And how in the world did you get that signature for free? I went through the whole process with them and created my signature and then it was like "Ok, that'll be $40". Um no. I don't know what I did wrong! And sad I'm not going to be in NOLA with you but you better text me updates! :) Happy Friday love!! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  57. All 3 of those bags are FABULOUS- I'm not sure how you'll decide haha. I always use one of those free Victoria's Secret bags which do the job, but after awhile they start to fall apart!
