See You Monday!

Happy Fall everyone!  Did you miss me?  I missed you.  I’m sorry that I’ve been gone so long.  I’ve been doing some soul searching and by soul searching I mean ripping myself from the grips of the retail world and searching for a bonafide big girl job.  I’m whipping up some posts for Monday that I hope you’ll love but, in the mean time, here are some gems I found that made me think of you.  Happy clicking!

Let’s be honest, the best thing about cold weather is all the great layering you get to do.  The folks at The 3rd Piece have all the finishing touches for your chilly look.  I’m really loving this scarf and I’m all about this hat.

I have an itch to throw a low-key dinner party.  I have a feeling this salad and appetizer would be on my menu.

I’ve been listening to the silly yet soothing podcast ‘Sleep With Me’ to lull me to sleep on restless nights.  I would try to explain it but I think you better just give it a listen. Sweet dreams…

My mother recently gave me this productivity journal and I can’t tell you the wonders its done for my time management and focus …. okay, and my productivity.  Mother knows best.

Speaking of productivity, Erin Condren has released her new drops for 2017.  While she’s known for her Life Planners™, she’s got everything imaginable to keep you organized in colorful style.

I just recently finished this incredible book by Susan Rebecca Whit.  It’s a deep, heartfelt story that you won’t want to end.

Next time you’re at a cocktail party and feeling a little under cultured, bring up the Hugo Boss Prize. Read up here and impress all your ultra artsy friends.

If you find yourself actually being interested in the Hugo Boss Prize, check out this wildly interesting book.  Interested but not that interested?  Here’s the book’s review.

Ever wished there was a blog devoted entirely to pretty pajamas and unmentionables totally worth mentioning?  Good news: I found one.  Here it is!

The wonderful Rifle Paper Company has come out with a new fabric line!  Any one of the prints would be perfect for bringing old chairs and sofas back to life or even curtains.

I’m a true crime nut.  Call me strange, call me creepy but I’m a sucker for a great who dunnit.  Which leads me to this pressing question: Have you watched all the Jon Benet Ramsey specials??  I listen to Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff’s wicked weekly podcast My Favorite Murder religiously.    Hardstark just wrote a two-part article on the specials and a bonus article on the new Netflix documentary, Amanda Knox.  Here they are.

Happy weekending and I’ll meet ya back here Monday.

Have a Lovely Weekend

This weekend is going to be super low key for me.  I’m thinking reading, bubble baths, yoga, Netflix, a museum day and maybe some tinkering with this cookbook.  Also, The Oscars are finally here (February 28th)!  I can’t wait for the who-wore-it best lists and awkward and/or wonderful acceptance speeches.  In the meant time, here’s some stuff I found around the web this past week, happy clicking!

There are few things I enjoy more than Jimmy Fallon’s wheel of Musical impressions.  I just watched this one for the first time and loved it.  Here is another one of my favorites with Kevin Spacey.

Want more Full House?  Netflix has only one thing to say, “You got it dude.”  Fuller House  premieres tonight.

Can we just talk about how beautiful these plates are?

This Oscars quiz  is a toughie.

How killer does this dish sound?

I’m biting the bullet and getting bangs (think Kate Moss and Brigitte Bardot) this coming week.  What do you think?

Trust me, you NEED these jeans in every color in your wardrobe.  They’re like yoga pants, they will make you fall back in love with tucking in your shirt all over again.

Doesn’t this cocktail sound so nice?

Aerie has buy one, get one 50% off on all of their swimwear.  I’m loving this onethis one, ooh and this one too.

Have such a wonderful and relaxing weekend and I’ll meet you back here Monday.  xoxo

I’m Throwing a Halloween Party

https://s.yimg.com/fz/api/res/1.2/8E90vrSiUjmQdoB8feIupQ--/YXBwaWQ9c3JjaGRkO2g9MzQwO3E9OTU7dz02NTA-/http://www.tasteofcinema.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/universal-horror-films.jpg

I love Halloween and I kind of consider it the beginning of the holiday season.  When I was little, my mom used to go all out and decorate the entire house inside and out.  One year in particular comes to mind when she truly outdid herself; my room was so scary I couldn’t sleep in it– it was fantastic!

I decided to throw a Halloween party at the beginning of the month and I’ve gone a little overboard with my party planning.  I found some really great ones like this gruesome bathtub accent, this killer serving idea and this totally terrifying cocktail.  I can’t wait to get started!

What are your plans?  Any suggestions?  I want to know!
