Links on Friday

Is everyone else as glad as I am that it's Friday? After a short week last week, this week was a little slow at times, but Friday is finally here. I'm headed to Raleigh after work today for the weekend -- and will be going to Triangle Beach Music Festival for a fun day of great music, great friends, and great weather. See you there?

one // I tried fried zuchinni for the first time this week. Where have I been? Oh my gosh, it is beyond good. And this summertime recipe is just the one I'm going to try.

two // I'm obsessed with Glitter Guide, and today, they're offering 5 things to try this weekend. Soaking up the sunshine? Check.

three // Clearly, I've had summertime food on the brain. It's hard to beat a strawberry cake in peak strawberry season, so this recipe is on my baking list. 

four // Pinterest has so many great tips and tricks on blogging from fellow bloggers. From basic setup to photography, pinterest is a great resource to find articles. Loving these blogging basics.

five // The crop top dilemna -- so, I have yet to try the crop top trend, and I'm just not sure if it will work on me. If there's ever a time to try, summer is it. These are from Swoon Boutique. Thoughts on the crop top?

  9. I've been very much on the fence about crop tops. I love them on practically everyone else, but I'm a little wary of trying them on me. I can't wait to see what you decide!

  14. I've been gorging myself on strawberries in honor of their season, so this cake is right up my alley. And how cute are those bicycles---the colors remind me of sherbet or candy.

  15. I'm with you on the crop top trend- I rolled one of my more form-fitting shirts up to see how it looked and I liked it! I'm a huge fan of the pieces that are cropped but don't show a lot of skin. I've got a few of the boxy ones on my wish list! Happy weekend!

  18. Pinterest is literally a gold mine for blogging tutorials! I just need to remember to actually read the advice and not just pin it. Oh, and fried zucchini is the BOMB. I think I may actually like it better than french fries, and that definitely says something. Hope you had a great weekend! :)
