Friday Finds: 8.3.18

Posted August 3, 2018 by Stephanie

Holy moly, it’s hot out! I’ve been keeping cool by snacking on ALL the summer fruits – chilled of course – plus a daily dose of popsicles. I am and forever will be in love with rocket pops. Do you guys like them? They remind me of summer in the best possible way. I’m partial to the cherry tops and the mysteriously flavored white part; I think it’s lemon-lime? The blue raspberry I could take or leave, but it’s not really a rocket pop without the blue, so there’s that. I’m hoping to expand my frozen treat selection and am thinking of getting into Halo Top. Mike doesn’t really love ice cream or popsicles, so please tell me your faves so I can have some pre-vetted treats!

Anyway, here’s are some fun finds!


  1. I don’t remember half of this stuff from reading Babar when I was a kid, but man, this is hilarious (and bleak). h/t to Mike for that one :)
  2. Could you imagine being allergic to meat?!
  3. Long lines and Tokyo go hand-in-hand.
  4. What are your thoughts on going private on Instagram?
  5. Oof. That’s a lot of time spent consuming media.
  6. I did not know that Nerf guns were so…intense.
  7. Being together and living apart.
  8. I lol’d at this vest vending machine.
  9. Luxury chicken diapers?!
  10. Crazy things happen on the internet – it can ruin lives.
  11. How an ex-cop rigged McDonald’s Monopoly and stole millions.

Link Love:

  1. I would be all over this hummus platter if I had in front of me.
  2. I’m digging these chewy oatmeal cookies.
  3. Halloumi croutons on tomato soup!! YAAAAAS!

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. I’ve been peeping this cast iron pan – it’s thin and light with a machined finish and an extra long handle.
  2. The Devil Wears Prada has a sequel and it looks just as funny and devour-able as its predecessor. Definitely tucking this book into my bag the next time I’m by the pool or at the beach.
  3. These little cactus tea lights are the cutest!
  4. Not sure how well this little blackhead scrub stick works, but the packaging is too cute.
  5. My blog BFF, Lyndsay, has a book out soon!! It’s full of cute and pretty cakes and I just know you’ll want to make everything in it! We’re doing a giveaway on Instagram, so keep your eyes peeled – you can enter to win a copy of the book plus a jar of the cutest ever sprinkle mix.

Aight! Have a lovely weekend! Keep cool and eat all the frozen treats!


  1. So, I enjoy Halo Top, but what you REALLY need to try is Yasso’s cookie dough popsicles. They’re amazing!!! (And they definitely don’t taste like the low cal frozen yogurt bars that they are.)

      oooh, imma look for that next time i’m at the store! thanks for the tip :)

  2. Keyan Kaplan says:

    I’ve been making those lemon coconut milk ice pops (you had posted in July from HonestlyYum). Then I made ones from liquidy yogurt and maple syrup, and now I’m onto smashed banana thinned with a little milk. Love my popsicle mold, too!

    1. Stephanie says:

      mmm banana pops!! gotta love summer! :)

  3. PINEAPPLE YOGEN FRUZ AND NOW THIS!????? I also LOVE ROCKET POPS!! Teddy always says “Mom why do you get that??” he’s always getting the Spongebob one or a drumstick or… omg. STEPH!!

    1. Stephanie says:

      rocket pops over all over pops except maybe those pink ones that come in the box with pink, purple, and orange ;)

  4. Jhon says:

    I thought we were talking about the cactus cake?!

    1. Stephanie says:
