Friday Favorites

Good morning sunshines!

Another Friday, another week almost complete. The weather is definitely getting cooler here and I feel the Fall breeze coming through to say hello. I absolutely LOVE the Fall, but I’m not ready to welcome it just yet!

Favorite Read: This article on a professional bridesmaid service that’s gone viral! Though our wedding planning has taken a bit of a side seat due to our studies, I’m still scrolling through Pintrest every now and then and have come across a few fun articles. This one caught my eye this week!

Favorite Sweet Treat: The most magnificent dark chocolate in all the land. Dark chocolate is definitely a weakness of mine – along with all the cheese and all the wine. Combine it with a perfect touch of orange and you have my heart for good. You can find this particular brand in your local grocery store’s organic section and I truly think it’s worth the $4.99. Try it out and you will never go back!

Favorite Infographic: I am by no means a baker (or a good one at that!), but I do love a great infographic highlighting healthy options on your usual unhealthy classics. Making a small substitute like apple sauce for oil or butter can make a HUGE difference in the amount of calories and saturated fats you’re adding to your baked treats. It’s the little things that go a long way!
