My friend Nicole who writes the Always Reiding Blog had a post entitled “Top Ten Tuesday” which this week was a list of ten inspiring quotes from books. Running with the quotes theme I decided to post a few of my favorites today for Triple F. These aren’t all from books but they do happen to be a few of my tried and true favorites.

Do you have a favorite quote? This quote junkie would love to hear it. Please share it in the comments.
I am addicted to Instagram. I freely admit this. A flaw? Maybe. But I do enjoy seeing snap shots of people’s lives. I’ve met some really fun folks via Instagram. Here are five Instagram accounts (in random order) that I follow either through Soul-Positive or my own private account. I have a ton more…but it’s only FIVE Friday Feels… (sigh).
Oh how I adore Jayde. She is astonishingly real. She posts about her shop, the mouth watering products in her shop and about her family which includes a husband, two gorgeous sweet children and a big ole’ white dog named Coco who’s always in mischief. You can also find her at her other account @littlebeautylane. Either account she has the funniest hastags on IG. Jayde is the real deal. A total no nonsense genuine gal. Bonus: She loves the Ray Ban Mirror Aviator Sunglasses as does this girl so I assume if we lived closer we’d be BFF’s.
Dr. Steve Maraboli is everything he claims to be – a life changing speaker. His pearls of wisdom keep me loving myself and never settling for second best. No sugar coating. Just good old hard truth facing words that make you stronger after reading them.
Not only do we share a love of baking but we also really love our kids. The photos @thebakermama posts are so delicious looking. I love how she bakes with her little boys too. They are absolutely adorable. Most times she posts the recipe for the baked goods on her website. This is a win win if you see something you like – you can go right online and grab the recipe. This makes my sugar coated heart so happy.
You had me at Easy Tiger….the company’s name. Sweet Lord above this is the coolest name for a company. That being said – they have some seriously rad products. How do I know this? Well let’s just say that Easy Tiger also enjoys an IG giveaway from time to time. I have won pilsner glasses and a $25 gift certificate to their shop in which I picked out a red t-shirt that reads “blah blah blah”….hence furthering my love of all things t-shirt. What initially attracted me to Easy Tiger was the fact that they sell greeting cards (hilarious greeting cards btw) in vending machines. How cool is that? And they drive a mack daddy green van. I enjoy seeing all their new products and the way the company has been growing over the course of the last year. I find the people behind Easy Tiger to be super cool as we’ve conversed via email and IG DM a few times and they are seriously nice people.
So Worth Loving is a Lifestyle Brand that was established in 2011. Their feed is filled with beautiful pictures showcasing their clothing line. The best thing about So Worth Loving is their company motto which reads “No matter your past mistakes, relationship status, or career choice, you are worthy of love. Love you. Love people.” Included in many of their pictures are inspirational quotes and stories from real people who have struggled but made the best of their situations. The feed is so uplifting and encouraging. I must admit…I have two t-shirts and the groovy mid calf socks. Seriously give this account a follow…you won’t be sorry.
This wraps up the Five Friday Feels for this week. I hope you’ll take a minute and check out these Instagram accounts.
Fridays are fun days! Each week I am going to share with you five things I’m feelin’…without further ado I bring you this week’s Five Friday Feels!
Canva is an amazing…I mean AH-May-Zing online graphics tool. This girl does not have a software package to create eye pleasing pictures for this website or social media posts. Low and behold here comes Canva to solve all my picture problems. The best part about Canva? The majority of pictures and layout templates are FREE. You read that correctly…F-R-E-E. And should you need a more elaborate layout or photo – oh they’re $1 each. Folks this makes my heart sing. This is a game changer. What a very useful, economical tool to further your business. A big shout out to Flea Market Funk for the recommendation.
Two: Pentel EnerGel Pens
I love these pens! Not only are they available in super delicious colors. They write so smooth. They’re very easy to find. Most big retail stores carry them in singles or multi packs. I bought mine at Staples. Staples conveniently has them at the register so when I’m waiting in line their dazzling rainbow colors call my name.
Three: PB 2 – Powdered Peanut Butter
Where do I begin? I enjoy Peanut Butter in my smoothies. I do not enjoy the extra calories that peanut butter brings to my smoothies. In walks PB 2. Boom – life changer. PB 2 has 85% less calories than traditional peanut butter. I am currently crushing on the PB 2 with Premium Chocolate. Two tablespoons has only 45 calories and one gram of fat. Need I say more?
Four: WordPress To Go by Sarah McHarry
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this book. I bought this book with the hopes that it would finally move me forward in the process of creating a blog and website. I purchased my domain name in January. This was March and I was still no closer to figuring out WordPress than I was when I downloaded it. Cheers to Sarah McHarry for writing a book that gives you the steps in laymen’s terms. The book is split into two sections. Lessons 1 through 8 cover the bare bones of how to get your site up and running. Lessons 9 through 20 go even deeper once you feel comfortable with the set up of your site. I will be forever grateful that I came across this book.
Five: The Lumineers – “Stubborn Love”
I first heard of The Lumineers when their song “Ho Hey” became popular. A few different songs kept popping up on my Cranberries radio station on Pandora. Each time I would give them the thumbs up because overall I was digging their vibe. And then I discovered “Stubborn Love” and I knew I was hooked for life. With over four million views on You Tube I can see I’m not alone. I may be late to this party but sign me up for the fan club. Let me know when they come around because seriously folks, The Lumineers are a good time!
Weekends are for enjoying. I hope you find something positive each day that makes your soul just a little bit happier.
