Friday Things


This freaking week, guys. What was it? (Ok don’t answer that…everyone seems to be blaming it on Mercury being in retrograde, if that’s your sort of thing). Seriously, though, everyone I talked to seemed to be “off,” and the long weekend couldn’t be coming at a better time.

There were some highlights–barre + Cava with Ashlee, and seeing some of my fav blogger girls at Laura’s Whole Foods beauty event. And the Papa Johns I ordered for dinner last night! My long weekend plans consist of lots of organizing, blogging, and seeing a few friends…low key and productive! Stay safe if you’re getting hit by parts this crazy hurricane, and have a great long weekend :)

PS: I’ll be back here by tomorrow morning with a roundup of this weekend’s best holiday sales!


5 apps to check out for discount airline travel…with the sales I’ve seen floating around the internet, now may be the time to head to Europe!

Another coffee table book to add to my list–a beautiful (and informative) one by Rebecca Atwood on how to work with pattern in décor.

– An interesting read for bloggers + non-bloggers…the NYT wrote about product advertising on Instagram and appropriately indicating when a post is sponsored. This can be tricky to navigate sometimes (and even though I tend to avoid any mention of the Kardashians, actually enjoyed reading this).

– I always knew Corcica was on my travel bucket list, but it was never really that high up…until now. The water speaks for itself!

Annie shared this 30 day push up challenge and I’m going to hop on board? It looks very manageable, no matter your fitness routine. Join us?!

– I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t totally ready for fall…if you love watching the trees change colors as much as this girl, this travel guide is for you! Confession: having such defined seasons up here (and further north) is one reason I’ll never move down south again :)


Sharing pictures of our stay at the gorgeous Eau in Palm Beach.

Blogging bloopers vol. 2–lol.

Rounding up favorites from the J.Crew sale section.

  1. Very sad realization – I cannot do any of these pushups unmodified! SO glad you’re joining me. I need this desperately. Off to read the article on IG – so interesting!
