This idea is borrowed from Iowa Girl Eats – every Friday she mentions her favorites from each category, such as favorite food, location, craft, puppy, etc from stuff she’s found on the web. I really like the idea. I spend a whole lot of my time online since I am a student and work in social media marketing – it seems like I run across some awesome photos and picks online all the time, whether it’s from pinterest or Facebook or just random sources. Because I didn’t want to be a total idea thief, I didn’t wanna name it the same thing as Kristin… plus I’ve already got Fitness Fridays going on Fridays and those weekly posts I have no intention of getting rid of 🙂
A lot of bloggers take weekends off. I sometimes do, sometimes don’t – but most days I don’t. It’s a down time and I enjoy blogging, I spend a lot of time catching up on blogs on the weekend and I’m usually pretty sad when bloggers don’t post anything on Saturdays or Sundays – it often leaves me bored during the day. I don’t know if any of you feel the same but that’s the reason behind taking up a Saturday posting. Although it might not appear every single week, I’ll try to make these posts pretty regular and to appear at least twice a month.
Welcome to Saturday POW (Picks of the Week)
Favorite indulgence: Tiramisu Cake. Wow, as I mentioned in my tiramisu cupcakes post, tiramisu is hands down one of my favorite desserts. But this cake takes tiramisu to a whole other level!
Favorite nature photo: Dragon Tree by Jeremy Cram. Wow, this photo is simply breathtaking. This man managed to create a photo fo a tree that looks like fine art. The colors are so beautifully vibrant and the symmetry is perfect. Stunning. I wish I could camp out below it and have a picnic.
Favorite illustration: Soo Kim fashion illustrations – these are amazing. I wish I could draw like that.
Favorite Quote: This is deep. I love the attitude and positive outlook – there’s always a good in every bad.
Favorite Girly Thing: These pink martinis are steaming?! Not entirely sure what is going on but this is awesome!
Favorite Advice: Tips to hold a plank longer – this is just what I’ve needed. I always quit before I think I’m at my threshold simply because I get bored and too frustrated with staring at the timer.
Favorite seasonal recipe: skinny pumpkin cheesecake brownies – holy crap, that’s a mouthful… a satisfyingly sweet mouthful. I don’t think I’d be able to say no to this one – all of the things I love in one -> cheesecake? brownie? pumpkin for a Fall flavor!? Check, check, check…. thank goodness they are skinny!
Favorite loaf recipe: I must try this low carb cranberry lime loaf. Like seriously, how much better can this get? Can it? Can it? I don’t think so. Especially since it’s already low in carbs! Ahhh… drools.
Favorite pooch: I’m not really for dressing up your pets but this puppy is too adorable!
Favorite guide: How to cook different squashes! totally what I was wondering on Tuesday when I was at the grocery store since it was overflowing with different varieties of squash. Too bad you can’t read the image as well as you should though :/
Which one of these is your favorite?
Any favorites you wanna share with me?
