Friday Favorites – Cruising Through May

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Friday dolls.   This week has flown by and I am in the need of some major weekend vibes around here.  I hope everyone has a nice holiday this weekend.  I am so fortunate to live close to my parents so I get to see my fabulous mom and dad sometimes a few times a month.  Mark’s parents are coming in town this weekend so we will definitely be keeping busy that’s for sure.  Let’s get into the favorites for the week.

Not going to lie…..5 circuits was pretty intense but 3-4 is completely doable.  Check this printable workout that you can do anywhere and guaranteed to get the heart rate up.




I know how much effort goes into writing a travel guide and this Italy in two weeks is pin-worthy for sure.



Did you check my last 10 purchases on Amazon post?  If you are not a Prime member check it out here and also see if you are in a Prime Now location.  Get tons of items delivered in 1-2 hours. It’s the real deal.



The best tutorial on how to blur background images in Photoshop.  If you don’t have photoshop, I have an entire post on how to obtain that blurry background so you don’t have to spend so much time on the post editing backend.




My stomach actually started growling when I read this recipe.  It takes a little bit of prep but looks like something even I could tackle.  Seriously, how yummy do they look?




How much I’m loving this pink cold shoulder dress from J.O.A.  I just love their price points and they are always on trend every season.  Stripes, peplum and under $40, this top is perfection for the Spring.  Check out the sleeves on this beauty.  Target has BOGO for dresses and shoes right now.  I am loving these lace-ups and these pink espadrille sneakers.  This one shoulder dress is adorable.  The bell sleeves on this dress are so fun.



Alright, it’s your turn!  Link up and tell me your favorites from the week and what your plans are for the weekend.

    Ohhhh I need that one shoulder dress from Target! I am heading there today to pick up the bowed Sam and Libby slides I think. I cant stop thinking about them after I tried them on last week. Hope you guys have fun with Mark’s parents this weekend! Also, I watched your Bar Taco story this morning and have been starving ever since. Rude. lol

    I was just looking at those dresses.. Sigh. They are all really pretty. Those shoes from Target are super cute too!! I thought of you yesterday because my colleague bought a pair of shoes at Nordstrom Rack for a PENNY. That is how marked down they were haha. Can you believe that? Anyway… have a fab weekend with your family!!!

  9. That Italy guide is great. Makes me want to go back to Cinque Terra, it was so beautiful 14 years ago when I went. I wish I liked shrimp, that recipe sounds great, I will have to try it with Chicken. I am ignoring all your fashion links because my budget app is screaming at me to stop shopping! I cannot wait for the ivory lord and Taylor dress to come Tuesday. I wish everything had Prime shipping! Have a fantastic weekend!

    Obviously I’m going to go click on every single one of your Target links. ;) Have a fun weekend with your in laws and parents!

  11. I need to learn how to blur the background with my camera. I keep playing around with the settings and get it 40% of the time. I’m not much for editing so I need to figure out how to get the picture like this off the bat!

    Nadine’s Italy post was AWESOME!! I definitely would not take the time to blur the background in photoshop. You’re better off just getting a lens that can shoot wide open. Much more efficient. But… I have the attention span of a gnat with photoshop. Lightroom for me!

  13. Creating travel guides is definitely a ton of work!
