Friday Favorites: New Month, New Name!

FF_9.1.jpg

Happy September everyone!

September has always been my favorite month. For starters, it's my birth month, which automatically makes any month more special. Additionally, September comes with the early days of fall, pumpkin flavored anything, and the best clothes. Everything just feels more crisp and fresh. It makes me excited to start new.

So I thought I would switch things up with Friday Finds and turn it into Friday Favorites. Instead of sharing articles I've read online, I'm going to start sharing products and places I've seen and done. Hope you enjoy!

New favorite YouTube series.

Finally got my hands on a glass of froze!

I hope I don't lose these new hair ties.

Friday Finds: Mid-Year Refection

Happy Friday friends!

We are one full week into July which means we are also passed the midpoint of this year. Around this time, I like to do a little reflection on the last six months. I think about the goals I had set for myself and what I have accomplished thus far. Doing this sort of re-grounds me and helps me get back on track so I can finish out the year strong.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week!

My idol had a baby!

The best prom revenge.

Major MAJOR change coming to Target

The sweetest commercial!

Some crazy (and gross) Oreo flavors.

The most amazing, yet underrated actress, ever!

Friday Finds: Finally It's Summer!

Happy Friday friends!

It is officially summer and I could not be happier! Although we were hit with some intense rain yesterday in the Kansas City area, the sun is shining and birds are singing and my schedule is finally starting to clear up. Going into spring, Steve and I knew we would be busy, but I don't think we realized how exhausting the constant travel and entertaining would be for us. But the season has passed and now it's time for a relaxing summer.

Now someone get me to a pool and hand me a glass of rosé!

Friday Finds: I was sick…

Happy Friday loves!

Not much to report on my end. I spent most of the week sick in bed. :( Thankfully I'm doing well enough now to finally get back into my yoga practice. This month at CorePower Yoga is doing another challenge! Hit the mat 20 times in the month of May for a chance to win prizes for nationally and at your local studio! Getting sick kept me from my mat for several days, but I am getting back on track!

Friday Finds: Demas Designs on TheKnot.com

Happy Friday friends!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen this post where I revealed that Demas Designs is now on TheKnot.com. This was a huge step for me. Anytime I put of piece of my life and my work online there is a bit of vulnerability. Especially in this case, because The Knot is one of the top wedding website. My page on The Knot still needs some love, but I'm really happy to have taken this step. Hopefully, this means more good things are coming. Stay tuned for more wedding invite examples and samples!

Friday Finds: Unicorn Frapps

Happy Friday Friends!

Alright, this may be an unpopular opinion, but nothing about the Starbucks Unicorn Frapp appeals to me. I don't even see the value of buying one just to take an Instagram photo. To me, it just looks like melted cotton candy, and I've heard the taste is odd. Plus have you seen the calorie count? Needless to say, don't expect any unicorn selfies on my Instagram Feed. 

Oh, now this is a thing…

Google stepping up their game.

Gifts your friends will love.

Barack would make the best Instagram Husband.

Never too early to start planning our wedding anniversary!

Marvel's marketing strategies.

Have any of you tried the Unicorn Frapp? Loved to know what you thought about it!

Friday Finds: Rain, Rain, Go Away

Happy Friday Friends!

If you live in the Kansas City area, or I guess the Midwest in general, you have experienced days upon days of rain, clouds, and overall darkness. I am not a fan. Yes, Spring always does bring rain, but if you ask me, there has been an exponential amount this year; and there is so much more to come!

Here are some of my favorite finds this week!

Scammers have now made their way to Tinder.

Romeo and Juliet were born within hours of each other.

We better get some beautiful May flowers out of this April (March) rain!

Friday Finds: Amazon Pilot Season

Happy Friday Friends!

Did you know Amazon has a pilot season? I didn't!

Despite it's similarities to Netflix and Hulu with original content, there is one very specific difference; Pilot Season. This time, they released 5 pilots. For a limited time, these pilots are available to watch. Once watched, the viewer can vote and help choose which shows Amazon will pick up and take to series. I'll admit I've only watched one of the pilots, but in my mind it was the only one worth watching.

I have openly admitted several times here that I love Gilmore Girls. It is definitely one of my favorite shows of all time. The wonderful creator behind Gilmore Girls, Amy Sherman-Palladino, is the creator behind one of Amazon's new pilots, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I cannot recommend it enough! Every minute of it was pure genius. I truly can't remember the last time a pilot was this good. If it doesn't get picked up to series, I will be very disappointed.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week!

The new TV show pilot you will LOVE!

This match-up with be true Hollywood Comedy Royalty.

159 years strong at Iowa State University.

Places to check out in KC for March Madness.

The most popular Millennial Brand this year.

Twilight reimagined.

I'd love to know what you thought about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, as well as any other Amazon pilots you think are worth checking out.

Friday Finds: It's Dark in the Morning Again…

Happy Friday and Happy St. Patrick's Day friends!

I love the daylight and I love the sunshine. Most importantly, I love waking up to the sun shinning through my bedroom windows. In fact, I firmly believe that if the sun hasn't risen, I shouldn't be awake. This can make winter rather difficult with the shorter days, especially on days when I teach a 6am yoga class.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago, the sun was up and bright before 7am! And then of course, Day Light Savings time happened and the mornings are now dark again. Now, just when I've gotten used to some early morning sunshine, I have to wait for it to come back… again.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week!

I remember when this happened and I still love it!

Hilarious and hopefully doesn't actually happen.

I've been loving avocado toast recently, so I'll have to give these a try too.

Loving this bracelet.

Adding these movies to my watch list.

Might have to drive up to Des Moines for this!

Friday Finds: New Work Out Experiences

Happy Friday Friends!

In the past seven days, I have tried two new types of workouts. The first was checking out the new CycleBar that has opened in Leawood, Kansas. I had been hearing so much about this place from coworkers, I had to give it a try. This was my first time trying a cycle class and it kicked my butt! But I highly recommend it. It was a great workout and I am excited to go back.

The other was Yoga Sculpt at CorePower Yoga. Yes, I am ashamed to say that it took me this long to attend one of those classes, but the truth is, I hate weights! So, basically, I was a little scared to try the class. But I am so happy I finally experienced it and I really enjoyed the class.

Here are some of my favorite finds this week!

My new favorite nail color!

Been obsessed with the first two episodes of this show. Can't believe I haven't read the book yet!

This is just funny.

Love this dress! May have to get it for a wedding later this year.

How would you answer these questions?
