Friday Favorites (06)

Happy Friday! This is the first weekend in what feels like forever that I won't be traveling anywhere. Rob should be getting in late this evening from northern Virginia and we are going to spend the weekend together here at home! I'm going to try to bake some muffins and go on a long walk and paint my nails--but that's it!
[I'm all about some red lipstick these days.]

Here are a few links I've loved this week:

Alice Walker on Censorship, in honor of Banned Books Week.

This clever little insert turns any purse into a camera bag. I'm getting one!

I love Kayla's sweet story about finding her sister on Myspace.

Speaking of Myspace, have you seen the new version yet?

Drawl Magazine is raising funds so we can go from online magazine to a quarterly print publication. It would mean the world to me if you could check it out here and make a donation or tweet about the fundraiser.

If you live anywhere near Farmville, Virginia (yes that's a real place), stop by Longwood University and see my brother's band, She's a Legend, play at Battle of the Bands! They go on at 7:00. I wish I could be there!

I'm really having a moment with sequins. And I'm head over heels in love with this dress. The Christmas parties! New Year's Eve! The possibilities are endless.

Two new friends for you to meet this weekend:
Vanisha is a PhD student from Fiji living in Australia. Needless to say, her life is cool.
Eliza and her husband are starting a new adventure and moving to Georgia! Follow along as they get settled in their new lives this month.

Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month? Sign the Pledge to Choose Kind.

I just made the switch to selling ads through Passionfruit--I hope my future sponsors will find this to be convenient. You can check it out and actually place an ad at any time during the month right here. Please don't hesitate to email me if you have questions, though!

Have a great weekend, you guys! I plan to do a lot of relaxing at the lake. What about you? Please feel free to leave a link to something you enjoyed this week in the comments! I'm scheduling a new Life Lately According to Instagram post for tomorrow, so stay tuned for that!
