Happy Friday everyone!  What are you up to this weekend?  We’re headed to Salem this weekend.  Witches and potions and ghosts oh my!  Anyone who knows me, know that I love Halloween.  Needless to say, I’m so insanely excited to tool around the town, do a ghost tour and see the Bewitched Statue.  What are you up to this weekend?  Here are some  links I found from around the web, happy clicking!

Listen up,  30 is not the new 20.

Vogue poses 73 Questions to Sarah Jessica Parker and also Nicole Kidman (isn’t she lovely?)

Take a gander at Christian Louboutin’s home in Portugal

I want nothing more that a big warm bowl of this gooey pasta.

This perfume  may be my new fall/ winter scent

Hurry! Ann Taylor is doing 50% off your entire purchase.  I got a new interview outfit and made out like a bandit with some great shoes.

How about some mulled white wine?

Presidential Canditate Poetry Slam.  Enough said.

See you Monday!

Have a Really Fabulous Weekend

Hey there you wonderful readers you, happy Friday!  I’m sorry I’m getting this to you so late but I had work and then I got a little carried away in my excitement of the return of House of Cards!  This weekend I’m going to a stranger’s birthday party, getting ready for one of my closest friends to come and visit and holing up in a cozy coffee shop to continue the full-time job hunt.  What are you up to?  Something wonderful I hope.  Here are some things I found around the web this week that I thought I’d share with you.

If you haven’t already, you’ve got to check out Magnolia Market, run by Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper.  Their home accents are simple and beautiful in every way.

I could not stop laughing at this photographic comparison of Los Angeles and New York City.

Have you heard of Kit and Ace?  Poke around their site and read their About page, I think you’re going to like them.

Here’s a really great blog post with super helpful denim wearing tips from the denim experts of Madewell.  (You should shop around, they just got some super crave worthy pieces in.)

The only election calendar you’ll need all year.  (You should also definitely sign up for he Skimm.)

How simple and pretty is this cocktail?

I’m absolutely dying to try this truffled gnocchi macaroni and cheese.  Three of my favorite things in one warm and satisfying dish.

I’m really loving all of the beauty products Anthropologie is now carrying.

I hope you enjoyed all of these as much as I did.  Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll meet you back here Monday.

 

And The Award Goes To…

I don’t believe that this is a place for me to get political because I want this to be a space that everyone loves to come and click around and read, so I’m going to do my best to stay as neutral as possible but I just have to talk about The Academy Awards last night.  Let’s start with the light stuff first.  Can we talk about those gowns?  Please?  I really loved Rachel McAdams in August Getty AtelierEmily Blunt pregnant and in PradaOlivia Wilde in Valentino, and  Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton made me absolutely melt with fashion envy.  Which one was your favorite?

Okay, now let’s  talk about the other stuff.

I really enjoyed watching the Oscars last night.  I was blown away by how many people of such high cultural esteem took the opportunity to deliver important messages of social, environmental, and thus, political justice.  Whether it was Chris Rock addressing the elephant in the room, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy empowering women around the worldJenny Beavan and Leo highlighting the importance and reality of climate change, and perhaps the most moving, Vice President Joe Biden’s powerful introduction followed by Lady Gaga’s emotional and poignant performance addressing sexual assault.

Maybe you enjoyed watching or maybe you felt uncomfortable or maybe you did both of those things.  Feeling uncomfortable is good, it increases the likelihood of change.  Complacency looks good on no one.

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
