I am so hungry. Maybe it’s the weather changing or my stress level but I keep craving weird things at odd hours. Like the extremely salty pickle I just inhaled before I sat down to write this. It’s for the best that I tend to crave savory foods and protein these days, otherwise you’d have to dig me out of a pile of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup wrappers or something. So guess what the theme of “Friday Favorites” is?
WHAT I READ
- 12 (INSANE) snacks hacks? Yes, please and thanks. Enjoy.
- A new seafood spot in Pasadena called PRAWN looks intriguing to me.
- Google is – somehow? – adding wait times for restaurants to Google Maps. I’ll believe it when I see it…. I think.
- There’s a British Pub coming to…. Sherman Oaks? Well, I totally want to try it. I’ve never had a Scotch Egg.
OTHER BLOGGERS & INFLUENCERS
- My friend Alyssa is going to be pregnant FOREVER. I’ve been teasing her about it. Because I’m that friend.
- I hate when my friend Jessica pulls something random out of the back of her closet and manages to look STUNNING. Bitch.

EARLIER THIS WEEK
