Happy Friday yall! This is my first Friday Favorites back in Australia and it’s so nice to be reunited with my baking supplies, teddy bear, and of course Ben.
I had a fantastic few days in San Francisco last weekend before making the journey back Down Under, and plan to highlight some of the fun from San Fran next week. In the meantime here are a few of my favorite things from the week!
1.// Favorite Clothing Company: ModCloth
So “favorite clothing company” might be a little misleading as I have never actually purchased anything from ModCloth. However, I was just reading this morning that ModCloth is the first clothing store to sign an anti-photoshop pledge, promising not to “change the shape, size, proportion, color and/or remove/enhance the physical features” of models in advertisements post-production. I think this is a fantastic idea and I would be proud to support a company that uses real unphotoshopped women in their advertising. Here are a few things I am loving today from ModCloth.
2.// Favorite Winter Essentials: Ugg Boots, Leg Warmers, Hot Chocolate, and Electric Blankets I just got back to Australia on Tuesday, and went from one extreme climate to another by leaving warm sunny 94° weather in Florida for 40° weather in Newcastle (and no heat in the house), needless to say I am struggling. Born and raised in Florida I have never known the pure joy that comes from owning an electric blanket, until now! I’m writing this post from the comforts of my toasty bed in leg warmers and ugg boots, while sipping homemade hot chocolate and being warmed up by an electric blanket. Nothing can come close to the feeling of climbing into a bed that has been warmed up by an electric blanket. Nothing. Ben claimed this to start with and now I agree with him!
3.// Favorite Décor Items: Pineapples A few weeks ago I wrote about the pineapple clothing trend and all of my favorite clothing styles and patters with the print. Now that we are coming into spring in Australia I have seen the pineapple trend starting its new life down here. I just found this pineapple jar at Kmart the other day. I have no idea where I am going to put it yet, but I think when we move and we have an office the pineapple jar and a few prints will make their way in there! // Pineapple Jar // Print 1 // Print 2 // Print 3 //
4.// Favorite Deal This Week: Weekend Getaway
Call me a bag lady, but when I see a huge collection of bags I cant help thinking what I would use each one for. This week on One Kings Lane their Weekend Getaway sale is totally speaking to me (and not because I leave for a weekend getaway to Tea Gardens tomorrow).
5.// Favorite Drink: Moscow Mule
I may be late to take on the drink party trend, but last weekend in San Fran my best friend Lauren introduced me to the Moscow Mule and I cannot get enough of them. They taste like ginger ale, and are so refreshing when served in the traditional brass glass which keeps them cold from first sip to last… it also doesn’t hurt that half of the glass is full of vodka. I plan on getting a few glasses when they go on sale next on One Kings Lane.
I’m off to plan our weekend away, apparently “Rainmageddon” is scheduled to put a wrench in our vacation plans this weekend with five days straight of downpour, so a brewery tour and movie might be the go. We’ll make the most of it I’m sure.
What are your weekend plans?
