Happy Friday friends! What a week it has been, my first week of working 5 days with no public holidays in sight again.

I don’t know about you but I’m really glad it is the weekend!

Tonight I’m taking Nick out to a very belated birthday dinner. I said I would be happy to take him anywhere so he of course wants to just go to a pub and have a Parma. (Boys!)

Tomorrow I have one of my nephew’s 1st birthdays, followed by a baby shower. So it is a very kid focussed weekend.

Sunday I’m planning on doing not much, sleeping in, reading and not much else.

Here are my favourites this week..

Friday Favourites

My favourite necklace of the week is this Scale Necklace on Etsy. I just think it is really different but cute.

My favourite food photography of the week are these Seeded Whole Grain Scones with Tahini. The recipe sounds pretty amazing too.

My favourite dream travel destination this week is Coron island, Philippines. It looks amazing to me.

My other favourite funny of the week. Lol so true!

My favourite winter outfit idea. I love wearing boots over jeans in winter which it isn’t quite yet here in Melbourne but we are certainly getting some cold weather.

How has your week been?

What are you planning to do this weekend?

    Happy Friday Jan! it is still Thursday over here… But Friday cannot come soon enough! We have a bank holiday on Monday so bring on another 3 day weekend and 4 day week :)
    Those scones look so good and get me to coron island asap please! I want to swim in crystal clear water like that! Have a great weekend!

      Happy now Wednesday :)

      Lucky you having an extra extra long weekend! I hope you enjoyed it.

    Those Whole Grain Scones look so good. I absolutely love scones :) Surprisingly I’ve never made them though…

    Also, that Holding Doors ‘funny’ really is true! I’m one of those last people and always wonder why I stand there and wait. I can’t say I do it all of the time but I definitely do it from time to time.

      I know how yum do they look? The only time I’ve made scones is back in high school in home ec, but they weren’t the easiest thing to make.
      :D hehe

      I hope you had a nice weekend.

    Ooh that necklace is super cute! I also loved the door-holding pic. Door holding is a “thing” at the college where I work, but some people take it a little too far and I feel like I should run to the door so they’re not standing there forever haha.

    Enjoy your weekend, your Sunday sounds perfect!

      That is so funny that it is a ‘thing’ at your college :) There must be a lot of doors?

      I had a great weekend. I hope you have been enjoying your holiday :)

      Lol yep we are heading into winter here, want to swap seasons? ;)

      I have to force myself to stop browsing on Etsy as I’d buy too much and I already buy too much on eBay anyway.

      I hope you had a nice weekend.

    Jealous it’s your Friday! And for a second I was baffled as to why you were showing winter outfits…duh!

    :lol: Omg that door distance thing just killed me. I feel the same way, or when someone stops for me to cross the street… I literally sprint across because I feel so awkward that they have to wait. And boots over skinny jeans is one of my favourite fashion trends. We’re going into spring here, and I’m still holding on to my boots for as long as I can!

      I’ll swap you coming into winter for spring any day ;) I’d even give up wearing boots.

    Scones with Tahini – now I am intrigued! Love the funnies – both of ‘em – but I hate to admit this – I am one of those door openers that falls in the middle of that graphic! YIKES! :)

    Week was a little crazy – but tomorrow is our Friday and I think I am gonna try and leave work early – Visitng a food truck park is on the agenda for tomorrow, spending time with my folks on Saturday, and church and cleaning on Sunday! Hope you have a wonderful weekend Jan!

      I know how yum do they sound :)

      Haha it is nice to be polite and open doors for people.

      Visiting a food truck sounds like fun. I hope you had a wonderful weekend with all the great activities you had planned.

  • Posted May 2, 2014 at 2:09 pm | Permalink

    I confess I had today off, so that’s three short working weeks :P Not ready to face a full-week back yet haha

    I like the necklace too! It has a bit of Christmas-y vibe to it I think, maybe just because of the way it’s hanging in the photo, it may sit differently when you wear it and not look so ‘tree-like’ Nevertheless fab! :)

    Tahini + Scones = Fantasy afternoon tea.

      Wow super jealous! But it is karma as I know you wanted a vitamix and michael kors bag too so it is payback time ;) hehe

      Yeah it does have a christmas vibe you are right.

      OMG right? I need to try this recipe.

      I hope you enjoyed your extra long weekend!

    I love that necklace! It’s so unique. I completely forgot that y’all are gearing up for winter. I just packed up all my winter clothes this past weekend : ( I miss boots and jeans already.

      I’ll swap you our winter for your spring! ;) I do like wearing boots and coats but I much prefer warm weather any day of the week.

      I hope you had a nice weekend.

    Happy Friday friend! Hope you enjoyed your day! That door photo is sooooooo true! It annoys me when people do that, as I would rather they just went through! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Good funnies this week. Love the exacto knife one! My husband’s traveling for work in the area where my sister’s family lives. He’s been gone for a week, so I’m joining him tonight and this weekend. We’re gonna spend time with my family, grill out, and watch the KY derby tomorrow. Should be nice and relaxing!

      Meet you in Hawaii? Or what is halfway? wherever it is I am there! It is getting colder by the second.

      Yes you can’t complain too much, Italy or any holiday right now would be awesome.

      I hope you had a great weekend :)

      Pinterest, Nick sends them to me, other people at work send them to me ;)

      I’m sure they’d work with gluten free flour – says me who’s never tried baking gluten free scones.
