Happy Friday!! I am looking forward to a half day at the full time gig today, and being treated to lunch by the company at the same restaurant where I had my birthday dinner last month. They have the tastiest menu so this will be a treat. My Honey will also be arriving in town this afternoon, and then tomorrow he, The Kid and I are traveling to my parents' neck of the woods for my Mom's 60th birthday celebration. I've been planning it with her for several months so it will be nice to see all our hard work come to fruition and to see her have a great time. And it will be fun to get some quality time with extended family and friends of the family. I'm sure you have some wonderful things planned as well--especially since the weather for us East Coasters will be mild and mostly sunny. Before we embark on weekend plans, I'd love to share some of the awesome things I've come across on the web this week that I think you might kind of love too.
Over at the COCOTIQUE Blog, we're discussing SPF brands that are ideal for African American skin. Feel free to hop on over and share your some of your favorites.
I stumbled upon this all-natural recipe for Strawberry Ice Cream on Pinterest; it feels like a 'must-try'. I am all for the idea of sweet treats without all the extra toxic, fatty ingredients. Why not give it a practice whirl this weekend so you'll be a pro once summer rolls around?
There was great color and style around the web this week:
- Who What Wear laid out some ideas (via celebrity photos) on how to stay stylish at the gym, which was right on time for me. As I've been working out 4-5 days / week for the past couple of weeks (yay consistency!), I find that desire to look and feel good becoming stronger.
- Dominique of Stiletto Esq. got into the spirit of spring with bold color via a shirt dress and sandals.
- and Ashley at Pursuit of Shoes made me envious of the gorgeous weather in Catalina in this pretty coral keyhole dress with cognac sandals (and a massive bun, which ya'll know mama loves).
It's not too early to add bright color to your wardrobe--why not channel Blake Lively in this hot pink power suit?
Love and magic to you, Lovies, until Monday.
