Feel Good Friday; ser. 8

Weekend, I love you! After last week's festivities, I'm excited for a relaxing weekend. My plans consist of going to a restaurant/bar for the USA Women's soccer game tonight then a going away hangout for a friend/coworker on Saturday night. Sunday will consist of grilling out by the pool. :) Do you have any weekend activities planned? Only a few hours stand between you & the weekend! You can do it ;) Here is a little procrastination to get you through your Friday; feel free to share with me what links you've been loving on this week, as well!: Youth and seniors are bridging the cyber gap! When establishing your blog (or any business online, for that matter), image quality is key. A road trip to this epic water slide would be a perfect…

Happy FridYAY! This weekend, some of my friends from London are coming in! I'm extremely excited. I'm not sure exactly what we're going to do, but they're such a good time, it's bound to be a great weekend! Now, your Friday dose of positivity: A yoga studio in Illinois is inviting people to join a class with shelter cats, which, in turn, as created more kitty adoptions! Corgi puppies chasing a camera- I repeat- corgi puppies chasing a camera! Professor Snape on helium! I will definitely be taste testing these 4 overnight oats recipes. There’s a theory floating around that cats are actually spies. ;) So, vodka gummy bear popsicles happened… talk about a perfect summer treat! These hilarious [but fake] interview tips will be sure to have you laughing out loud. Miss anything…

Feel Good Friday; ser. 6

Fall time in London

PSA: The previously known series, "Link Love" has been renamed to "Feel Good Friday". Why, you may ask? Because everyone deserves a little sunshine at the end of their workweek! [& I like to keep it positive around here ;) ] This weekend, Dj and I are headed to Amelia Island, FL! I'm really excited because I will also be ticking off #4 on my 2015 Summer Bucket List: Go horseback riding on the beach. I haven't been horseback riding since I was about 10 years old and I thought my horse was trying to kill me because it started to rest one of his legs (I'm not dramatic at all). This will definitely be an interesting adventure... Do you have any special plans this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope it's a good…

Link Love, ser. 5

TGIF! I hope you all had a fantastic week- mine went by really slowly, which isn't always a bad thing. After last weekends lounge & happy hour fest, I'm ready for all of the activities! So far, my plans include beach volleyball, grilling out by the pool, and pretty much anything that features the sunshine. *Crosses fingers for no rain* Here is a little Friday Link Love to get you through the rest of your day before the weekend! Enjoy :) Calling all 90s girls! This will probably be the most important quiz of your life: Are you more of a Britney or Christina? This compilation video of animals thinking they’re puppies is too cute to handle! ICYMI: Caitlyn Jenner (formally Bruce Jenner), made her debut on Vanity Fair’s cover. An artist based in…

My 2015 Summer Bucket List

Even though I've graduated from college & have been in the "real world" for a good year and a half, I'm still under the illusion there is such a thing as a Summer Vacation. Maybe it's from the 23-ish years that I'd had one, I'm not sure, but I do know that I'm not ready to give up the idea of one. There is something so tranquil, relaxing, and downright FUN about summer time. Maybe what we need to do instead is still find ways to make time to enjoy the things we love- and I'm doing that with a 2015 Summer Bucket List! As I accomplish my "goals", I'll strike them out & include the date. I invite you all to embrace your inner summertime kid & make a list of your own!…

Link Love; ser. 4

The more I share with you my week's link obsessions from around the web, the more I realize just how quickly weeks go. This week, I signed up for grad school pre-req courses, set up my masters program interview in D.C., AND drove all the way up to Richmond, VA to see my brother & family. This weekend, we're going to a 1,000 foot water slide that is covering the city of Jacksonville, a bridal show with my friend Lauren, and *hopefully* squeezing in some time to relax and give my apt some much needed TLC. What do you have planned for your weekend? In the meantime, here is a little bit of Link Love to get you through your Friday before you head out for the weekend! Buzzfeed paired up with America’s Funniest…

I can't believe another Friday is already upon us! Do you have any special plans this weekend? Dj and I are going up to my mom's in North Carolina for the long, holiday weekend.
