Friday Favorites

On Friday of every week I’ll be posting some of my current favorite things found around the web. Today’s post is brought to you by a happy napping baby and an even happier mum who just finished more chores than she set out to do, HUZZAH! Welcome to the first Friday Favorites. I hope you enjoy these things as much as I do. My favorite things this Friday are…image

This amazing zippered pouch by one of my favorite artists, and all around rad dude, Dany Brito. He custom drew the design found on the digitally printed fabric based on this episode of The Simpsons. I can’t get enough of it! Buy the pouch here.


This delicious, healthy and super simple pancake recipe. We made these bad boys for supper last night and the hit the spot. Two eggs, a banana, some baking powder and some cinnamon is all you need. Unbelievably delicious, and only 22 calories per flapjack! Photo and recipe via Our Best Bites.


This Couple’s 10th anniversary photo. “…thought we’d capture the romance” Image via Reddit user trapiezist.


Pura Vida bracelets are not only affordable, hand-made and super cute but every bracelet purchased helps provide full-time jobs for local artisans in Costa Rica.


Last, but certainly not least, these amazing signs made from re-purposed pallets by Pixels & Wood. They’re all hand printed by an amazingly talented designer named Brittany McCullers who is not only skilled in the design field, she’s also a derby girl like I am (which makes buying from her feel SO RIGHT). The sign pictured above was actually custom made for my family and hangs in our living room. We love it!

Do you have something you think I’ll love? Do you want your art/recipe/product/video/anything featured on Friday Favorites? Shoot me an email and we’ll work out the details.

Welcome to! As most of you probably know, I’m Carly. For those of you who don’t, hiya, you can learn more about me here.

Since having Scout, I’ve really put having a blog on the back burner (exactly what having a child does to most hobbies). As of late, blogging has been something that I’ve really missed doing. I miss the outlet, I miss the creativity and most of all, I miss the interaction with readers. As expected, becoming a mum has changed me in many ways; all for the better.¬†That being said, a rebrand was inevitable. I’ve been living a clean, healthy lifestyle full of exercise, creativity and positivity. I want The Loveliest to reflect outward how I’m feeling inward, happy, healthy and full of love.

So welcome to my fresh start. The Loveliest is a lifestyle blog that will be updated regularly. I have a crew of my favorite people on board and ready to post about what they love and excel in. Expect to see a variety of topics covered here, including: recipes, fitness, fashion, DIY, and of course, personal posts from yours truly and the fam.

Do you have any suggestions? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to comment below, or hit me up via the contact page. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more.
