Get ready for week five of my Friday Favorites!

| 1. | Favorite Clever Tank: When I first saw this tank about waffles shared on my Facebook I couldn’t help but laugh and think wow, this couldn’t be more true! As the weekends have passed by I have come to the realization that this is my life. Now could someone please bring me some waffles?
| 2. | Favorite Creative Lunch: This mom has got it right! Everyday Grace from Eats Amazing packs a lunch for her son with a different theme and then blogs about it. I love checking out all of her creative lunches! I wonder if this is what Ben was talking about when he asked if I would make him lunch for work……
| 3. | Favorite Shop for Good: I came across The Little Market while searching LaurenConrad.com. “The Little Market works with artisan groups from developing countries across the world.” The owners of TLM provide design insights to help their partners showcase their skills to a broader audience. The work of each of our groups is funded through earnings from the sales of their fair trade, locally handmade products on The Little Market’s website. The work of each group is absolutely gorgeous and you can clearly see the hard work that has gone into the making of each product.
| 4. | Favorite Wall Décor: I first saw this clever idea on Pinch of Yum’s Instagram page and loved it. I am always in awe over POY’s food photographs, so much so I bought their book Tasty Food Photography so I can learn how to take my food look just as gorgeous as they do! It’s no wonder they have chosen this was to display their food in their kitchen. Great idea Lindsay and Bjork!
| 5. | Favorite Weekender Bag: I bought a weekender bag from J.Crew Factory for Ben this past Christmas, and made it very clear that I loved this bag and would have purchased myself one… if I hadn’t purchased the last available bag for him! I love this bag made by CB Station, on sale this weekend on One Kings Lane. I found a similar Weekender Bag at J.Crew which is also on sale. Yes – I am a bargain shopper!
| 6. | Favorite Sale Obsession: I never used to be this person… you know the one who signs up for those websites where you have to give your email address to see the sale. Now every day I get emails telling me what new sale is on – and I kind of love being a (online) window shopper. Out of all the sale websites, One Kings Lane has by far the best selection, and when this sale called From My Kitchen to Yours popped up in my email today I knew I had to share this with you because, 1. They are included a CakeBox that I had already planned to include in this post; and 2. I think I want to buy EVERYTHING in this sale!
I originally saw the CakeBox on Food52, and was planning on sharing that with you, because it is by far the cutest cupcake and cake holder I have ever seen! The One Kings Lane sale ends on Monday, May 5th, so if you miss the CakeBox on their website, try Provisions by Food52. If cake isn’t your thing, or you find yourself bringing pear pie to a party like I have, there is also a PieBox available!
| 7. | Favorite Proud Big Sister Moment: My little sister is graduated from the University of South Florida today… and I am in Australia. But I was still able to be a part of her special day because she proudly wore the same stole for our fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi that I wore in my graduation from UCF a few years ago. Congratulations little one, I am so incredibly proud of you!
Kyra, was also featured in the article: Today’s Advice to Graduates: No Selfies, written by the Associated Press. I even got a shoutout in there!
As a follow up to her article I asked her how many selfies she took in the graduation ceremony, her response, “Lots!” Ben and I even got in on the selfie action! What are your favorite things this week?
