Friday Favorites Round Up

Happy Friday friends!! We made it and better yet - there is a long weekend upon us AND my eye twitch is GONE!! I'd say that's cause to celebrate! We have a pretty jam packed weekend and I'm excited to get to it, but first - linking up with Amanda & April! 

Favorite Recipe

This recipe has sort of been floating around Pinterest and I think it's about time I make it - I mean we all know how much I love sushi and this is basically just a bigger roll! I'll be subbing the shrimp for crab meat, but it should be just as delicious! 

Favorite New App

I love taking pictures, but I struggle with lighting in my apartment - it just doesn't have a lot of natural light - when I was reading this post on a new app I immediately downloaded it! It does cost $1.99, but it's so intuitive and I mean they have a filter called "Lights On" - if that's not the first step to brightening I don't know what is!! The App is called Pic-Tap-Go

Favorite Look

Krystin always has the best style - probably because she shares outfits I could actually recreate!! Her latest is this great winter look - complete with OTK boots and fabulous coat! 

Favorite Workout

Oh look at that - another Tone It Up Workout! It says you need a kettle bell, but I just used a 10 pound weight and worked just fine!

  7. I love pic tap go! I also realllllllly love the brightening tool on Instagram.... It's my favorite out of all the apps! Have you tried it?
    I love when you post workout videos! I'm cancelling my gym membership (waaaaaaaah!) because it's just too difficult to workout around a baby who's schedule I don't know until the day of (it doesn't help that my gym is 25 minutes away... So it takes an hour out of my day just for driving time.) so I have to get back on board with at home workouts!

  10. Pic Tap Go looks awesome! I usually use Afterlight for editing pictures, but they don't really have a great brightening option. I will check it out! I hope you have a great week!

  27. So I went to look up Pic-Tap-Go and here I have it on my phone...but never use it? LOLOL So thanks for reminding me it's there and I will definitely try it out this weekend. My living room is dark.

  30. Hooray for no more eye twitch! :) I'm downloading that app today, and how cute is that winter outfit? Happy Friday, friend!

  31. That big sushi roll just reminds me how much I love sushi. and how it's been far too long since I've had it. I'm checking out that couples managing money article. It was hard when Kyle and I joined finances because I had a lot more financially set than he did, but now I'd say we're on the same page, we do need to get life insurance though/

    ReplyDelete
  38. That shrimp stack looks AMAZING! I haven't seen it before but I just pinned and cannot wait to give it a spin. Thanks for sharing! Have an awesome weekend :)

  39. Such a useful tip for that app! I will definitely have to get that. I did that Kettlebooty workout also and my legs are still hurting! Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm definitely going to be checking out Pic-Tap-Go! It's been super gloomy this week and extra lighting definitely would have helped!

    ReplyDelete
  41. That recipe looks amazing!!! And I am going to have to try that work out next week to change it up. I will be checking out that app too, the lighting in our house leaves much to be desired. Have a great weekend!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh gosh - I love a good camera / photo app - I've gotta check this out now.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hooray for your eye twitch being gone! I always know when I'm tired because my eye starts to twitch. That Pic-Tap-Go app sounds so amazing, and I know exactly how you feel about not having the proper lighting. I love seeing all of the info about the perfect wine and cheese pairings, even if I don't pair them right all the time. I think that we might need to have a date night at home where we just try out all of the pairings. Hope you have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  44. How have I missed that recipe? I need that in my life! Thank you for sharing and have a fun long weekend! xo

  45. I also have that problem with natural light, so I should probably download that app!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I got PicTapGo for the same reason! Our house doesn't have a lot of natural light.. and I work all day so the times I can take pics is the morning and evening... when it's dark out. #BloggerProbs This app has been great! Happy Weekend!!! Oh, and please make me a double order of those sushi rolls and ship them ASAP!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I cannot wait to download that app. I struggle with lighting too and in the winter it is either too cold or the sun is already down when I want to take pictures. Thanks for the tip!

  50. So great that your eye twitch is gone and lucky you for having a long weekend! My eye also twitch every now and again so i know the feeling. Is this a sign of old age or what?!! Hopefully not.

  63. Oh my gosh so trying that recipe! I love pic-tap-go and once I downloaded it is actually linked right in my photos as an editing option.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The TIU Girls workouts are the best! I am just about to put one on today. Are you doing the TIU challenge? How are you liking drinking tea still? I am tempted to start drinking green tea because I need the caffeine and coffee is too bitter! I love my chai tea lattes but there are so many extra calories. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
