Friday Roundup

Hello and happy Friday friends! My posting schedule has been a bit sporadic over the last few months and that's due to work, both my full-time job and my side business, which I'm not complaining about at all because having actual clients that want us to help plan their weddings is a blessing - with that being said, I do want to maintain some sort of consistent blogging schedule so for a while I will be posting Monday, Wednesday & Friday. Since Monday's and Friday's are usually link-up's - I'm going to do my best to change it up and not constantly share favorites on Friday's and if the weekend's just aren't that exciting - I'll have something else planned for that day! So with that little bit of housekeeping out of the way, here are my favorites from the week and linking up with Amanda!




Favorite Show

It might seem like every week I'm mentioning a different show, but there's aren't many shows on air right now that are must watch for me and when Gary and I can agree on a show it's pretty miraculous! Prison Break is an older show, but there are 4 seasons so we have plenty to watch! This show is jam packed with action and is more of a thriller than I anticipated, which I love! Must watch on Netflix!

Favorite Recipe 

These chicken cakes are the perfect substitute for those non-seafood fans out there. I will be attempting to make these on Sunday and I'm pretty excited for the dipping sauce!

Favorite New Collection 



Essie recently launched their new gel couture line and I have to say I'm intrigued. You can buy it now on Amazon, but the next time you're in a salon give it a try...I know I will. I'm really interested to see how the new brush and formula work, especially on my nails that can't hold a regular manicure for anything!


Favorite Look
Love everything about this look! The dress is just flowy enough, but the SHOES - those are amazing!

  4. Guess what? After the urging from our sons who had all watched all seasons, my husband and I started prison break last weekend. So far we watched 11 episodes and isn't it crazy how every single episode there is something so exciting going on! I just love it. I am so happy for you that business is good! I just got a little white dress kind of like that and I was wondering what shoes to wear with it, those are darling!! Have the BEST weekend sweetie!

  5. Girl! I made those chicken cakes the other week and am sharing the recipe next week! They are DELICIOUS! I didn't make the sauce because it looked like way too many ingredients but instead made a chipotle mayo mix. I can give you what I did if you want, or you can do the sauce she recommends. Either way, the cakes are SO good!

  23. Girl, I am right there with you on the M/W/F train! Sometimes life just gets too busy with all kinds of good things and blogging takes the backseat for a little bit. I've finally gotten to that point thanks to the wedding and the house... but it's a good problem to have ;) Happy Friday!

I think every other day is a great schedule, I'll be looking forward to reading your posts, as always! You've shared some pretty cool links, I love the Facebook hacks! How cool is that about the basketball emoji?! I don't know if I should share that with my hubby or not, haha! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, gorgeous, and thanks so much for sharing!

  43. It's so much harder to post regularly in the summer especially because there is so many things going on for everyone! Love Prison Break, such a good show and I don't know if you heard, but they are rebooting it with new episodes!!!! Oo I'll have to check out that new Essie line, regular manicures won't last for me either so I'm curious :)! Happy Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh man those chicken cakes look so delicious! I love crab cakes, so that sounds like a fun and new recipe to try out! We don't have a lot of shows on TV right now either, so the husband and I have started on multiple Netflix binges too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. My posting schedule has been sporadic lately too! I need to get back into the swing of things. Glad y'all are getting more clients, that is so exciting!!! Essie's new collection is beautiful, I love their polishes and can't wait to give these a try!

  71. Biana, I watched Prison Break on the Summer after the second season had already aired. Back when Blockbuster was still very popular. I rented it on a whim and the first DVD had the first 4 episodes. I ended up watching all 4 in a row and went back to Blockbuster the same day and rented the other two DVDs. Needless to say I was hooked. To this day it is one of my most favorite drama+action TV Shows. In my top 5 for sure. If you are looking for a fantastic, great-acted, drama-packed current prison show, watch Wentworth where you can currently find all 3 seasons while the 4th season is currently airing. I have talked about that show so much on the blog and it is superb. BTW, a reunion of Prison Break (10-12 episodes) are taping this year. Once the show is over, let me know how you felt.

    That chicken cake and remoulade dish sounds amazing and how gorgeous ins that LWD outfit?!
