While Friday Favorites have been popular on a lot of other blogs for awhile, I thought I’d start doing them here on GFF twice a month.

 Sweet Relief Bakery Cupcakes

Sweet Relief Bakery // A couple weeks ago while my boyfriend and I were walking around downtown we came across a new bakery, Sweet Relief. We went in and picked out a couple cookies and a cupcake to share. Needless to say everything we sampled was delicious. I stopped by again last weekend to pick up half a dozen cupcakes to share with my family. I decided to go with one of each kind they had out. Although I only got a try a bit of two of them, I was told that they were all amazing. If you’re in downtown Calgary I’d definitely recommend checking them out if you’re craving something sweet.

Restorative yoga // Last week I went to my first restorative yoga class in way too long. It was with a teacher I’d had before, and it was just what I needed. We spent an hour and 15 minutes going through a handful of postures, holding them for long enough for my body to relax into them. I felt so refreshed afterwards, I know it won’t be long before my next restorative class.

Garden view from MRU library

Pretty view from library // Although I don’t start classes at school til Tuesday, I’ve been working there for the last two weeks earning a little extra money. One day after work I stopped by the library to get some blogging work done. I opted for my favorite spot and was treated to this view while I worked. There’s some seriously beautiful outdoor spaces at my university. I walk through another pretty garden on my way  to the main building from the parkade.

New computer // That computer in the above photo? It’s a new one. After making some tough decisions I decided on this one. I’ve been really happy with it so far and I think it’ll be great for days when I’m at school all day. I’ll be able to work on papers, powerpoints, and get through emails between classes. As useful as my ipad mini was last year for accessing the internet, I just wasn’t able to write papers or edit group presentations on it.

Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Clif Bar

Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Clif Bar // I stocked up on some Clif Bars and Larabars to keep in my locker at school. I ended up giving this one (affiliate link) a try a bit early. I’d never had this flavor before, but I really liked it. It kind of tasted like eating a bowl of oatmeal.

Halt and Catch Fire // Season three started two weekends ago and I’m sooo glad it’s back! I’m excited to see where the characters go this season. If you’re on the fence about watching it, I’d encourage you to give Halt and Catch Fire a try. It may take a few episodes to get into it and get a feel for the characters, but it’s so worth it.

    I have never tried this Cliff bar flavor before! I am usually drawn to the white chocolate macadamia nut one…but will have to keep this in mind in the future :)
