The Friday 5: v.30

The Friday 5 is a weekly feature highlighting interesting, controversial, heart-wrenching, inspirational, and/or creative content worth reading and sharing. I always find the best blog posts, articles, outfits, and inspiration from other bloggers, so I hope I can do the same for you. Here's to hoping something will make a difference in your weekend! the-friday-5-v-30


Get Motivated

  1. Have you ever considered being a part of the young, but booming industry of creating apps?
  2. BRB running to get me a swing dress!
  3. If you are a freelancer, here are 22 free tools and apps to help you get started and organized.
  4. I LOVE the idea of hiring a photographer while vacationing abroad. What an amazing way to capture your journey in an organic way, rather than the typical posed pictures and selfies.
  5. Jana kills it again: On Balancing Blogging and Real Life is a must-read and a must-do!

Get Inspired

  1. Shop your favorite bloggers' closets and get the look for less!
  2. If you've ever considered trying Whole 30, you might want to read about my experience and why I quit after 5 days.
  3. Do you ever take the time to think about what your blog's name means? What your "brand" means to you? Here's what it means to be "modern Austen."
  4. This morning felt like a crisp and cool fall day! Now I'm dreaming about layers and saturated colors.
  5. I don't think this post will EVER get old, I'm sorry I share it every other Friday 5.

Hello hello, dear friends! I hope you have had a fabulous week. It's been a pretty good one for me--nothing too crazy to share. All I can say is that I am SO grateful that it's Friday and that it's a nice LONG weekend. I don't know about you, but I need it. Recovery and catch up is on the agenda. What are your plans to celebrate Labor Day?
