Friday Favorites: 08/30

by Khushboo on August 30, 2013

Yikes guys, just where did the month go…how are we already at the last Friday of the month!  I am pretty sure September is going to go by equally fast. But enough with the cliché “2013 is flying” talk & let’s focus on the present while we can.  With that in mind, here are some of my favorites from the week:

  • I came across Reason Clothing‘s printed cheeky parody t-shirts when I was in London & couldn’t help but laugh.  As much as I love to wear designer labels, I equally appreciate a fashionista with a good sense of humor.  It was a toss-up between the Chanel No. 1 No1 Cares At All & Hermès Homiès but I went with the latter…. the t-shirt’s obnoxiously neon pink color won me over.

  • My inspiration definitely heightened this week after seeing Jobs, the biopic on Steve Jobs & bringing Apple to life.  Three words: what.a.legend!  It’s so crazy to think that despite starting off in his parents’ garage and actually getting fired from Apple at one point, Steve did exactly what he intended: he put a “ding” in the universe.

  • For the sake of my sanity, I embarked on a one-day laptop detox on Sunday and stayed away from it for a majority of the day.  I attempted to read Pride & Prejudice but that wasn’t happening so I switched to something lighter: Revenge Wears PradaWhile it’s by no means a literary piece of work, I’m enjoying it as much as the first one Devil Wears Prada.

  • If you follow K Weigh on Facebook chances are you hard about our latest plan: The K Weigh Wedding Shedding Plan:

Wedding Shedding Image

It is an extension on K Weigh’s basic underlying principle: achieving results through sustainable changes to both diet & lifestyle.  Because we understand that certain events like weddings motivate us to take drastic action for immediate results, we have introduced a more controlled, yet balanced, plan.  Rather than encourage you to starve yourself into your dress/ saree blouse, The K Weigh Wedding Shedding Plan focuses on eating real, unprocessed foods, which will naturally help you beat the bloat.  Whether you are getting married or attending a wedding, this plan might just be what you’re looking for :)!

I love Jane Green- I’ll have to check Mr Maybe out! Did you read her book Jemima J?

Shashi August 30, 2013 at 7:33 pm

YES!!!!
Loved it!
Except for the last 3 books she released (Promises to Keep, Another Piece of my heart, & Family Pictures) I have read and reread them all! (Mr. Maybe is a reread)!
Do you like Jennifer Weiner? She writes in a very similar style to J.G.

I have no idea what the heck is happening to the time either. On the one hand, July kind of feels like it was forever ago, but on the other, I have no idea where August went. Ahh well… Just that much closer to Christmas 😀 And I’m actually not really reading much of anything right now. I’ve been doing a lot of studying, so most of my books have been nutrition related.

Happy Friday, lady!!

I love those t-shirts!!! A few years back I bought the guys singlet version which had Chanel and underneath it it said hollywho.

Currently I am reading this amazing book, its called Strategic management- a competitive advantage approach concepts and cases, 14th edition. I highly recommend it, especially if you have trouble sleeping.

By the way, the inner marketing nerd in me LOVES your design for the wedding weight loss initiative- RSVP dates and all! Have a great weekend buddy!

I totally want to see Jobs. This guy really is fascinating!
And staying away from the computer for a day just feels so good, right? Reading just is the best alternative. Happy Friday!

As much as I love technology, stepping back every so often feels wonderful 🙂

Not everything we read has to be a literary masterpiece. 😉 I really enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, so I’ll have to read the sequel once I finish the Game of Thrones series. I’m on book 4 right now!

Did you ever watch the movie? Every time I pick up the sequel to read, I only have images of Anne Hathway!

I couldn’t agree more- I read to switch off, not to fry my brain further 🙂

Sam @ Better With Sprinkles August 30, 2013 at 6:47 pm

I didn’t realize there was a sequel to Devil Wears Prada out! Must find ASAP. I just finished reading ‘Insurgent’ so that goes to show you how super-advanced and academic my reading is sometimes :-p

Reply

Khushboo August 30, 2013 at 7:14 pm

I’ve heard great reviews on “Insurgent”- would you recommend?

That shirt is pretty fantastic, ummm need 🙂 Although wonderful classics are great and all, sometimes I need some chick lit to enjoy and escape reality from. So I very much concur on your choice!

Glad we on the same wavelength ;)!

It’s a good thing that I don’t read else I’d have NO TIME with blogging and working. I don’t know how ppl do it all. Favorite brands, so many… for clothes – Zara, Mango, and JCrew. 🙂
I have to see the Steve Jobs documentary, it’s on Netflix these days.

Khushboo August 31, 2013 at 9:15 am

Although a lot of people seem to have not enjoyed it, I’d still recommend Jobs 🙂

Good to know you like “Revenge Wears Prada” as I brought it with me here to London. I haven’t read it yet…trying to catch up with work (and blogs!) but I am excited to give it a try.

My favorite designer? I am not loyal to one particular brand but I do love just about everything Bloomingdale’s has to offer….

Blogs are the new books 😉

I’m currently reading your blog! Also the latest edition of Eating Well and the most recent Maeve Binachy. I like The Devil Wears Prada so I’ll have to check out its counterpart. Thanks for sharing.

I loved Revenge Wears Prada! Currently reading The Cuckoo’s Calling by JK Rowling – amazing! I want to see Jobs, hopefully will soon..And my favorite brand is most definitely Zara for high street, and for designer wear, you can never go wrong with classic Chanel 🙂
