Friday Favorites from Pretty Pink Tulips, Refinery 29, Julia's Album and More

Good morning! Happy Friday! I hope that your week went well. Here, all was well except the weather; it rained, and rained and the wind blew and then it rained some more and now we are in the path of a Category 4 hurricane. The stores are empty of "the staples" like water, bread, etc and people are preparing for the worse and hoping for the best. In the meantime I am going to take advantage of the rainy weekend and just catch up on a little reading.

I love walking and this article in The New Yorker Magazine, Why walking Helps Us Think reminds me of just a few of the reasons why.

Another thing that I love is pumpkin. I cannot get enough pumpkin at this time of the year,  basically if it has pumpkin in it I will eat it.  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin soup, pumpkin donuts and more.

I think this Pumpkin Praline Cheesecake might be just the thing to make this weekend. After all what could offer more comfort on a stormy day than something sweet?

If you prefer savory pumpkin dishes to sweet than this Pumpkin Ravoli with Brown Butter Sauce and Pecans might be right up your alley?

I wrote this week about my 10 Everyday Classic Wardrobe Essentials for Fall and I realized that I actually should have had 11 wardrobe essentials, I forgot the black turtleneck! A black turtleneck is obviously a classic wardrobe essential and this article on Refinery 29 A Loveletter to Black Turtlenecks : It's History & Magical Powers tells why. 

Are you a Nancy Meyer fan? If so you should check out Elizabeth's post at Pretty Pink Tulips on the fabulous sets from The Intern.

Did you find anything interesting  to read, see, watch or do this week? If so please share.

For those in the path of the hurricane be careful and stay safe. Have a great weekend.


  1. OK, that pumpkin ravioli is a must-make this weekend! HI ELIZABETH!!!!!!

  2. Love it all but that chart is fantastic! I had to pin that and agree the post from Elizabeth on The Intern was fantastic, now I am off to prowl that pumpkin ravioli...yum! Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. PS Stay safe and really hope it ventures east, I haven't heard the latest but as of yesterday i thought it was going east? Fingers crossed.

  4. I have to catch up and read
    your wardrobe post! I am
    trying to have a "curate"
    mindset with mine, culling
    and whittling it down to
    what really works!

    Going to hop over to
    Elizabeth's and take in
    what is sure to be some
    great pics from The Intern
    set : )

    I include ground pumpkin
    seed protein powder in
    my (almost) daily smoothies.
    It's a great alternative to
    dairy and chock full of good
    protein, vitamins and minerals.
    It doesn't taste like pumpkin,
    though, so have to turn to
    some of these other yummies
    for that, instead!

    Enjoy your cozy time. It
    sounds like the worst of it
    is going to stay out to sea ~

  5. Hi Elizabeth, I am hoping that the storm has passed you by without too much damage! As always, your Friday faves are SO wonderful - I am seriously craving anything and everything pumpkin, especially that ravioli! And, the walking graphic is something I should pasted onto my wall - now that I am on the mend a bit, I really NEED to get out and walk. Stay dry and enjoy the rest of your weekend! xoxo
