I LOVE the Friday Five

Friday came quick this week! I LOVE 4 day work weeks. Here are your Friday Five to get you through the weekend. Fall in LOVE with as many things as possible this weekend!

1. JennDubMeend aka Mini-Me aka one of my best friends, Jenn - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope today is full of the things you LOVE most.

2. Allison's Chocolate Chip Cake - This is delicious. My friend Allison made this last weekend and I fell in LOVE with it. It is definitely a must-try. Thank you for the recipe, AlliMay!

I failed to take a picture of her cake but this one is very similar. Thank you google images.

1 box Yellow cake
1 box vanilla pudding
1/2 German chocolate bar shredded
1/2 c water
1/2 c vegetable oil
4 eggs
8oz sour cream
6oz mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Add all ingredients except chocolate chips together and mix on medium speed for 3-5 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a bunt cake pan sprayed thoroughly with Pam. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Do the clean knife test to see if it's done.

3. Ikat - This is a fashion trend that I have seen everywhere lately from clothes to bedding. I LOVE it.
Dictionary.com describes Ikat as a method of creating patterns in fabric by tie-dyeing the yarn before weaving. Here are a few examples below:

4. Total Effects Night Firming Cream - This nightly moisturizer firms skin appearance and provides 7 anti aging benefits in 1 product all while you sleep. (olay.com) I LOVE this product. I put it on at night after I wash my face and immediately my skin looks healthier. It doesn't make my skin oily and my skin looks fresh in the morning. Plus, it fights 7 signs of aging and I figured I better start now because it'll help my skin look younger for longer.
Moisturizes with a complex of vitamins, antioxidants and wheat protein for skin that looks visibly firmer and younger-looking every morning
