Friday, I’m in love: 5.23.14


Happy Friday! This has been such a whirlwind week, jam packed with errands and busy evenings, so I am really looking forward to sleeping in and laying low this weekend.

I road my bike to work yesterday for the first time which was pretty exciting. It’s all downhill on the way to the office which is nice and easy, but heading home at the end of the day is going to take some training. I rode about 1/2 the way yesterday and walked about 1/2 when I got to some big inclines. I’m determined to just keep at it because I know it will get easier. (And thank yeezus for lower gears!)

This weekend I’m going to a barre3 class with my friend Christa. If you haven’t heard of barre3 it’s an exercise program that combines ballet, pilates, & yoga… and it will seriously kick your butt into shape. I’ve been consistently going once a week again this month and it’s really helping to give me some good energy throughout the week. If you’re interested in knowing more about my experience at barre3 you should check out a post I did awhile back over at Campfire Chic.


This weekend might be a good time to catch up on some TV shows we’ve been lagging on because of our busy schedules. I’m loving this infographic from Uproxx that shows just how much time it will take you to binge watch a whole series.


ModCloth+ is having a huge Memorial Day sale this weekend with up to 30% off select summertime styles! I’m loving this Vivid Viewpoint dress+. Be sure to check out all the goodies and pick yourself up something pretty for the nice weather ahead.

I’m pretty excited to check out The Leftovers premiering on HBO next month. Here’s the latest teaser trailer.

And while we’re at it, have you seen the True Blood season 7 trailer? I’m so excited! But I’m also bummed because this is the last season.


These new Sin City posters have me very excited. I’ve been waiting 10 year for a sequel to the original Sin City and August can’t get here soon enough.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! I hope we don’t get totally rained out here in Portland because I think a bike adventure would be really nice.

Summer is so close I can almost taste it. And with the new season approaching there’s nothing better than having good drinks with good friends. A few of us are putting together a beer (& cider for me) tasting next month and I’m so excited. Now to just put together my dream beer tasting outfit:
