friday’s fab five {7.25.14}

The fab five is posted every Friday to end the week on a happy note and features items on my radar that I’m loving right now. Who knows, you might find something that could be on your fab five list!

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be at BlogHer today and tomorrow hanging out with fabulous bloggers and brands (are you going?). I’ve been to a couple of blogging conferences, but this one is on a much bigger level. Looking forward to it!

Here’s this week’s fab five:

1. Recipe of the week: Pepperoni Cauliflower Casserole (via I Breathe…I ‘m Hungry…)

You guys, this casserole is so good! Cheesy cauliflower casserole with pepperoni slices on top. It’s freakin’ delicious.

2.  Bamboo Fruit Bowl $58

This fruit bowl is so pretty and unique- perfect for a gourmet kitchen. Check out the other pictures on the site for how awesome it really is.

3. Baby Goats Talk Back

If you haven’t seen this 26 second video, play it now. Makes me smile how cute these little ones are. So much better than the grown-up version.

4. Wine Glass and Bottle Holder (for four) $16

Living in San Francisco, I’m getting to know what a luxury extra space is. For those in small spaces that also like drinking wine once in a while (and who doesn’t), this super cute glass and bottle holder is pretty much a winner.

5. Song Pick: “Boss” Fifth Harmony

I remember Fifth Harmony on the X Factor (American version) and thought the group was pretty good (they were the ones that auditioned as soloist and Simon decided to put them together as a group). This song is pretty catchy and makes me want to do some choreography. I miss those days.

That’s it for me, have a great weekend!

Lemon Blueberry Cake

I wish I was a baker. The thought of mixing ingredients that look exactly alike (a.k.a flour, baking powder and baking soda) makes me crazy. Casseroles and other baked dishes I have in the bag. Baking a cake? Not so much.

That’s why I’m so happy when I have friends that can bake cupcakes, cakes and pies without batting an eye. Leela is one of these people and she is awesome at it (she’s also from Dallas so she is upgraded to one of my favorite people).

Check out this Lemon Blueberry Cake recipe she made (adapted from Cooking Classy blog).

friday’s fab five {7.18.14}

The fab five is posted every Friday to end the week on a happy note and features items on my radar that I’m loving right now. Who knows, you might find something that could be on your fab five list!

What are you up to this weekend? We plan on just hanging out, watching some movies and maybe indulging in date night. Sometimes it’s those weekends that end up being the best ones.

On to this week’s fab five!

1. Recipe of the week: Perfect Potato Soup (via The Pioneer Woman)

Do you ever get excited when you cook something that just turns out so good that every bite is a mini celebration? I felt like that after making this potato soup for Justin and I. Although super easy, there is a lot of chopping involved, but let me tell you (in a wide-eyed, big smile kind of way) that it’s so worth it.

2. Lip Flip with Jimmy Fallon and Whoopi Goldberg 

I couldn’t stop laughing at this so I had to share. So funny!

3. Swing in the Air Necklace

A beautifully unique and creative necklace that I would totally rock.  The rest of the collection is so adorable as well, with the prices so good (under $20) you’ll want all of them.

4. Inhale Exhale Tee $45

I would totally wear this shirt to yoga class (and pretty much anywhere else). From a company called Spiritual Gangster. Awesome.

5. Song Pick: “Am I Wrong” Nico & Vinz

On constant replay. You’re welcome.

 

That’s it for me, have a great weekend everyone!
