Friday faves 14

I hope all of the rain this week means the weekend will be rain free. I want to get into the pool this weekend (though it's probably freezing from all the rain water), but if not I at least need some sun on my legs--they are a bit ghostly.

I can't wait to try this recipe for Strawberry Protein Pancakes. And the greek yogurt filling makes them look even yummier.

Pleats seriously scare me. But this post about pleats shows you how to really get them done. I love the look of the inverted box pleats, I may have to try those soon.

Happy Hunger Games! I know I'm a little late on the Hunger Games bandwagon, but now I'm totally all about Panem. It took me a while to warm up to the books, but now I'm reading Catching Fire and I can't get enough. This Hunger Games party is so awesome, it almost makes me wish there were Hunger Games (but not really).

I love French dips. It's all about the au jus. Being able to dip the sandwich in yummy beef juice is just so good. These little cresent roll French dips are so cute and perfect party food. Or you can just eat up a bunch yourself.

A s'mores cupcake is one of the yummiest things ever, but put it in a cute little mason jar and it's even better.

This little purse is so adorable, and it's made from leather. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try sewing leather, but maybe I'll make it out of pleather or faux suede.

This Too Faced eyeshadow palette would be perfect to take on my Paris trip. It has all the neutrals I use pretty much everyday.

Would you ever guess that this is made from a man's button down shirt? I may have to find a shirt to transform into this cute blouse myself.

This article asks a simple question for those of us with huge fabric stashes, "Does this fabric make my stash look fat?"

I hope everyone has a great weekend without any rain!
