The beautiful spread at my friend’s Iberian Peninsula Wine Tasting last weekend!

Thank God It’s Friday. You’re almost to happy hour, so sit back, pretend you’re working, and have a spreadsheet open somewhere. Enjoy these links inspiring me this week from around the web!

PS: Football is back, and I’ve decided to play in not one, not two, but THREE fantasy teams this year.  Goodbye productivity.  GO TEAMS!

PPS: OH MY GOSH SCANDAL SEASON 5 PREVIEW.  I cannot simply wait.

If Your Piggy Bank is Full:

  • If I had an endless shoe allowance, these casual, over the knee suede boots would be the first things on my list.
  • I want literally everything in this gym-to-streets outfit.  This girl can rock some Nike’s.
  • Because they’re endorsed by Kerry Washington (my idol) and because there are those nights I can’t bring myself to wash my face, I’m totally ordering these Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes ASAP.
  • Ladies, have you ever realized how important a product is when it’s GONE!?  I’ve been using this Laura Mercier Foundation Primer and ran out.  And I can’t get my hands on it soon enough.  It’s a complete game changer!
  • Because I don’t have a full set of measuring cups (shocking, I know) I might splurge and spend $23 to get this Kitchenmade 6 Piece Set.  They’re the best in the business and are so classic!

Weekend Eats:

  • MORE ZUCCHINI.  I can’t get enough of it.  I have three in my fridge and these crispy zucchini tacos have my name on them
  • On an autumn note (I CAN’T WAIT FOR FALL!), I’ll be sure to make some slow cooker apple butter when we visit the apple orchard soon.
  • And since we’re talking about apples.  How about an apple + oatmeal + SMOOTHIE BOWL.  It’s hip, it’s cool, everyone is doing it.
  • MUSHROOMS.  My dinner buddy doesn’t like mushrooms.  Or nuts.  So I’ll have to food-lust after this mushroom penne with walnut pesto.  Or make it when it’s a me + Netflix + the dog kinda night.
  • I was going to make a giant list of football recipes for you all.  And I still might.  But definitely not by Sunday.  So here’s 175 football recipes, created by How Sweet It Is.  You seriously can’t go wrong with anything she cooks.

Link Love:

  • Some Michigan students invented an app that can virtually walk you home at night.  This is a game changer for my lovely ladies out there.
  • Since stay-in-and-watch-a-movie season is upon us, here’s a site that helps you find the best movies on the web.  No more deciding between Scream 4 and Inspector Gadget.
  • The woman behind Ambitious Kitchen wrote a great piece reflecting on her past 4 years blogging, living in her 20’s and navigating the hard stuff.  She was the first blog I followed and is an inspiration every day!
  • I liked this list of 11 everyday items under $25.  I have a lot of them, and the bedrisers and step stool would be super helpful…
  • Your weekly small-space-no-weight workout brought to you by Pumps and Iron (PS, she is a great blog to follow!).  I’ve been struggling to find time to workout with school and work, and this will definitely be added to my repertoire.

xo, Maddy
