Here’s my Friday Five-ola:
1. Emotipugs. Hilarious website of pictures of pugs in various scenarios with captions. Need I say more?
“That feeling you get when you’ve run out of money and you have another week to go before your next paycheck and you’re debating what’s more embarrassing: calling your parents and asking for some money, or mooching off your friend for a bite of their muffin.”
2. Shop by Color iPhone App (by Luxe Finds)
Like the website says, this app “solves the age old question that we’ve all asked before while shopping – “Do these shoes match my dress at home?” All you have to do is take a photo, let our app analyze all the colors in front of your very eyes, choose a color to shop with, and voila, a list of curated shopping list is magically displayed for your shopping pleasure. If you don’t have a photo that you want to use, you can choose a color from our color wheel to shop with.”
Ummm….genius? Why didn’t I think of this!
You know it’s summer when I start ordering these. I don’t know what it is about the almondy-goodness mixed with sour mix, but it makes me feel happy. Here’s the recipe, in case you have some amaretto lying around and want to make your own:
Pour the amaretto liqueur into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Add a splash or two of sweet and sour mix, and shake well. Strain or pour into an old-fashioned glass, garnish with a maraschino cherry and a slice of orange, and serve.
4. Sweet Potato Chips!
These are to die for. Sweet potato anything is my jam, but this bag of chips could definitely be dangerous!
5. A Quote to Live By:
A bit sentimental to end with, but I couldn’t have said it better myself. Make sure you give back in some way or another this weekend – be it walking a dog at the Liberty Humane Society or giving a bit of $$ to a charity (better yet- finding a charity) that you like to support. Find what excites and motivates you, and give back!

On that note…Happy Weekend!
