Happy Friday!
I’m Julie from The Splendid Guide. I share my thoughts on shopping, fashion, beauty, food, and everything in between! I am so pumped it’s Friday because it’s seriously felt like the longest short week. These are my Friday Five that have gotten me through this week!

  • First and foremost, I loved Maya from Charmingly Styled’s post on #realbloggerbeauty. On June 16th, Maya has invited any blogger to share an issue, struggle, or charity that means something to them. It’s all about being honest and sharing something real. I can’t wait to read some of these stories!
  • Although I’m not a puppy parent, I love reading Alexa from Lexalicous’s post on her new ADORABLE puppy, Dory. Read more about her life in Puppy Parenthood.
  • Jess from The Golden Girl shared this week a few ways to top Crostini for an easy entertaining idea. These would make great appetizers when hosting a dinner party al fresco this summer!
  • With Wedding Season officially on it’s way, we are all in need of ideas for what to wear to a wedding. Shelby from See Shell shared a few ideas of what to wear including a jumpsuit – fun!
  • Did someone say donuts? I am not one to turn away a donut and this recipe for Chocolate Glazed Donuts from Peter at Feed Your Soul Too looks amazing.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend enjoying the beautiful Chicago weather!
