This past weekend was absolutely perfect. Saturday was met with a steady rain due to Hurricane Matthew, so MPR and I ran errands and then curled up with Rufio, lit candles, and watched Halloween movies on Netflix. Sunday left plenty of time for reading and self-care to prepare for the week ahead. That is my ideal weekend.
I can’t believe that in just a few short weeks we’ll be heading up to Long Island for our friends’ wedding, and then we’ll be in November. Is it bad I’ve already started shopping for new Christmas ornaments? I can’t help myself – this is my favorite time of the year.
Here’s what caught my eye this past week:
- Kate Spade Holiday Dinnerware: I’m honestly jealous of everyone who currently has a wedding registry. This Arbor Village Christmas dinnerware set is adorable. I may need to pick up some table linens and serving pieces for myself!
- Fashion Editors vs Fashion Bloggers, Explained: I’m fascinated by this war Vogue has declared on fashion bloggers. I’ve been watching it with the same intensity an incredulity as a Real Housewives reunion on Bravo. To be honest, I see both sides. I have a love/hate relationship with bloggers for their lack of authenticity, but I look to them for outfit ideas, not magazines.
- Social Menopause: Have You Gone Through “The Change” Yet?: This article from Man Repeller made me giggle. It also made me feel better about never really wanting to go out anymore and often being in bed by 9:30 PM. Is it because I’m married? Is it because I’m nearing 30? Maybe I just got all of my partying out of my system in college. I don’t know exactly when it happened, but I have definitely gone through “social menopause.”
- 6 Ways to Get Over Your Creative Slump: It’s normal to hit roadblocks in creative careers. I’ve recently implemented a few of these tips (unknowingly) and they have made a huge difference in my attitude and productivity at work.
- Camel and Gingham: Obsessed with this camel and navy outfit from Stylish Petite. Since moving down to Charlotte, I’ve learned to embrace navy instead of always reaching for black. If black is chic, then navy is classic.
