Favourite Links Friday

Friday, December 19, 2014

Waaah, waaah, this week has been super busy, boo hoo etc. Look, we're all busy this week what with the working and the Christmasing and whatever else, no need to apologize. I'm just going to boldly phone it in with some of my favourite links from the week.

[1] What Colour Is It clock: the background colour changes according to the hex code for the current time. Cool, and oddly mesmerizing.

[2] J.Crew Factory sale: Yesterday was 30% off regular priced items, 40% off clearance, and free shipping, so naturally I had to treat myself to this and this (in red.) Uhhh...gifts from the New Year's fairy? (Today they're doing 50% off everything and 30% off clearance: you're welcome).

[3] What's Your Drinking Nationality? Simply enter the number of beers, wines, and spirits you've had in the past week (OK, maybe this isn't the best time of year to do this) and it'll tell you how much you drink in a year - YIKES - and which country's drinking habits you best mesh with. I drink like an Italian: mostly wine. The average Canadian drinks a ton of beer, by the way.

[4] I made these cranberry brie bites for our girls' wine night this week. I realized midway through the recipe that I was using full-size muffin tins and the recipe called for mini-muffin tins. What to do? Make humungous oversized 6,000 calorie cranberry brie bites, obvs. These were rill easy to pull together if you need a last-minute holiday appetizer.

[5] What Girls Really Think of Guys' Names: Hilarious and not totally inaccurate.

Anyone have any fun weekend plans? I'm looking forward to a good workout at the gym and a long run, plus some Christmas baking - it's all about the balance. I'm sure there will also be some outdoor time, gawking at Christmas lights, and hopefully a holiday beverage in there, too. Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. That colour clock ... wow ... I kind of want to leave it open in a new window so I can watch it while I work, but then I suspect I wouldn't work.

  2. That's such a nice picture of you and Peter. :)

    I feel you about the week. I just want to nap for daaays. Sooon will be off for a few days. Roomie and bestie is moving out though (done school, new job.) I am so up and down. GLASS CASE OF EMOTIONS over here.

    Those brie things. NOM.

    1. I prescribe some brie bites to help with those feelings!
