I’m so excited for this weekend! Tonight, three of my closest girlfriends and I are spending a night in the city (renting a hotel) and just living it up! The main reason for this staycation was to spend some quality time catching up, laughing, getting dolled up and simply, to just be together. We’re going to go out for dinner, drinks and we plan to end our mini getaway with a fun brunch. Important friendships, like any relationship, require TLC. I try to never forget that!  In the meantime, here are the things that have been catching my eye this past week:

Happy Friday!

Here’s what Monica & Chandler’s apartment from ‘Friends’ would look like in 2018.

Jean, along with several of her friends who’ve gone through infertility, writes a wonderful piece on ways to support a friend dealing such struggles.

I purchased this dress (worn here) for a few upcoming events and it’s currently on sale!

Maria Shriver’s personal essay on why being a mom is ‘a job of a lifetime.’

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been hearing the term “Intermittent Fasting” a lot lately. If you’re curious about what it is and whether it’s beneficial, here’s a great post from Geri.

The pink russet Theory blazer I’m wearing here.

Last week, I shared some inspiration images behind our kitchen remodel. Now it’s all about the bathroom.

The best grills for backyard barbecues & summer cookouts.

Under $100 blazer (comes in 6 colors.)

What to consider before buying a new mattress.

Have you been implementing the ‘one minute rule?’

5 Spring vegetables you should be eating.

Adorable spring/summer earrings.

    That Friends article is so funny. It’s amazing how things that seemed so cool and trendy can feel so dated not that long ago.
    I Love that Chanel bag, it looks stunning against your denim,xAllie

    Pretty please don’t take this the wrong. I’ve suffered from infertility. And you post so much about, I wonder if you faced your struggles with it too or you are just simply empathizing with us (the 1-8 women). Well, regardless of your own story, thank you for sharing and always shedding light.

      Hi Sandy,

      To be honest, I’ve seen some of my best friends (and a few of them) struggle and how much pain they’ve had to endure going through infertility.. I haven’t faced these issues, but I’m very aware at how many women do!

  • Fatou

    Love this denim look!

    Okay so question! I really like the way the Hermes sandals look, but I’m wondering how they are in terms of comfort. Would you wear them out for extended periods of time in the city? Or are they better for simply going to lunch? I have higher arches, so do the shoes have any arch support/are the soles comfy? So I checked out the 5 spring vegetables you should be eating link and it was quite interesting to see pea shoots on then. I’ve seen the vegetable quite a bit in recipes lately but haven’t eating them myself since last summer. I guess I have to start getting back into it! Have a nice weekend with your family dear! 😀

    • Helena

      Hi! I find them very comfy. I could wear them for hours and be good. Maybe if I was a tourist and walking all day, I’d opt for sneakers, but they’re definitely better than just wearing to lunch!

  • Chloe

    Enjoy your staycation!

  • Sammy

    Hi! How would you compare Theory’s sizing to other brands? thanks!

    • Helena

      Hi Sammy, I’d say it runs TTS, leaning a drop on the larger size. I wear a 4 in blazers as I do in most brands, but it’s a slightly bigger 4, if that makes sense!

    Loving this denim on denim look! You really broke it up beautiful with the white tee. Very casual yet still chic!

    I’m definitely guilty of putting off wearing items when I wear them because they are so beautiful I cannot resist getting them dirty. It took me a while to realize I was being pretty stupid.
