Friday Favorites from The Stripe, Design Crush, The Sway, The Vintage Contessa, Cindy Hattersley and More

Good morning! I hope that your week went well. First off let me thank you for your comments and emails about my aging post. I love a great discussion and it is always wonderful to learn something from you.

Speaking of aging. Elizabeth of The Vintage Contessa and Cindy of Cindy Hattersley Design posted about their monthly series Ageless Style. Elizabeth posted about Jill Anthony and Cindy about Beth Djalal both beautiful, classic women over 50 and their unique style.

The Super Bowl is a couple of weeks away and although I am not interested in the game I love the commercials and I love the excuse to eat all sorts of tasty food. One of the things I am going to make this year is Southern Poutine, if you do not know what Poutine is, it is traditionally from Canada and it is basically french fries with gravy and cheese. It is delicious!

Healthy Lunches Image from The Stripe

I am always looking for a tasty healthy lunch, The Stripe posted a great article this week featuring Healthy Homemade Work Lunches

I don't know about you but I hate to start the by day jumping out of bed and "hitting the ground running." I typically need at least 15 minutes to get myself grounded and ready to go to hot yoga or to take the pups walking. Shannon from The Simple Luxusious Life  shared 11 Ways to Start Your Day smart. 

I love to read and am open to almost anything unless it is scary, I especially love learning new things. This week The Sway posted the Best Books for Entrepreneurs

If you love to learn new things My Modern Met posted about 15 Creative Online Learning Classes that you might like. 

I hope that you share whatever you found interesting this week, a recipe, podcast, book, etc. I love your suggestions and enjoy reading or trying your recipes.
