Welcome back! Today I am excited to share my first Friday Favorites post of 2016! Feel free to share what you are loving in the comments and I will check your suggestions out. 

I have followed Diane Sanfilippo for quite awhile via Instagram and her blog. I recently started listening to her Build a Bad@ss Business podcast and LOVE it! Each episode ranges from 15 – 60 minutes, so they are perfect to listen to while driving to and from work. Prepare to be motivated!

If you follow the Sunflower Paperie Instagram account, you know how excited I was to get fresh blades and cutting mats for my Silhouette Cameo. I love my Silhouette products, so I am super excited to try the new Premium Blade which is supposed to last 3 times longer than the standard blade.

I don’t know how I missed this while he was in space, but Scott Kelly’s Instagram account documenting his year in space is AMAZING! Some of the vibrant colors in his photos are unbelievable! I have also enjoyed seeing his posts since he has returned to earth.

I am such a sucker for dog stories (both happy and sad) and this is one of the best I have heard in quite some time! There is something so touching about this man’s story about his relationship with two rescue dogs. Grab your tissues and learn from my experience and don’t watch this at work (or in public)! 😉

Now it’s your turn… Tell me what your are loving (and what I should check out!) in the comments! Happy weekend, friends!

Friday Favorites (Sunday Edition) // 03.19.16

Birthday Sunflowers - Sunflower Paperie blog

I am a little late sharing my “Friday Favorites” this week (oops), but for a good reason… Yesterday was my birthday, so I have been busy celebrating! In the spirit of birthdays, I thought it would be fun to share a bunch of things from my birthday wish list. 🙂

I have admired theses Concrete Cacti for quite a while now! Gore Design Co. is based right here in Tempe and does larger scale concrete pieces too.

This item is going to seem SO random, but I want a set of Yoga Toes! A massage therapist once mentioned that I curled my toes under and ever since I have noticed that I do! Even while sitting or standing, my natural reflex is to curl my toes – which is not good at all! The reviews I have read about this product seem like they would help my overall foot health.

I have gone back and forth about whether I wanted a fitness tracker for a couple of years now. With my goals for this year, and my specific action items, I have decided I want one and have done some research. I would like the Fitbit Charge HR, now I just need to decide on a color!

Seriously, how cute is this cactus phone case?! I have been checking it out since I got my phone last November and I still think it is super cute!

This choice might show my age, but I really want a new pair of glasses from Warby Parker! I like these, these and these! The company lets you select up to 5 pairs to send to you to try on at home, but one of my students recently told me there is a store in Scottsdale, so my plan is to go there soon, so I can try on more than 5 pairs!

What have you been loving lately?! I would love to check out your picks, so leave them in the comments!
