Friday Favorites from Mai Tai's Picture Book, Yonks, Once Upon a Chocolate Life, Pinch of Yum and More

Good afternoon! Things are finally settled here, I managed to retrieve my photos and restore my blog, but not without a lot of sweat.

After writing a few of these "Friday Favorites" posts I realize that more often than not my favorite links include traveling, food and books and this week is no exception.

This week Di from Yonks and Mai Tai from Mai Tai's Picture Book have been visiting London and their adventures and photos are fabulous as always. A little fashion, a little food and some beautiful sights.

It time and money are no object you could go on a spectacular adventure to "ten sights like no other", from Petra, to Madagascar, to see the Northern Lights and the Terracotta Army and more, over a month long journey. Visit Very First for more details on this once in a lifetime trip and many more!

For those of you who may be tailgating this weekend or just stuck in the house watching movies because of the rain, this Cheesy Chili Dip from Lindsey at Pinch of Yum looks and tastes delicious. Honestly anything that is cheesy and can be scooped up with chips is a winner in my book!

For something easy and sweet, try this Oreo Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake from Once Upon a Chocolate Life that I made last week! It is so fabulous you might want to make sure that you have someone to share it with because you may eat the whole thing in one sitting.

And last but not least, a little something to make you think and smile. Proof that one person can make a difference in the world, even when you have nothing! Click HERE for Kamala's story!

I hope that found something here of interest and as always, please share your finds from around the web! Have a wonderful weekend!
