Happy Friday & Birthday To Me!

Dior Velvet Suede Slingbacks in Burgundy for Happy Friday & Birthday To Me!Fridays are always a good day, but especially when your birthday lands on one. Today, I’m another year older and feeling so incredibly #blessed. Does it get more clichè than that? Probably not, but it’s the truth.

Also, on a completely superficial note, the above shoes were a birthday gift (from me to me)!

Today, I’m heading into the city for a very inspiring event with Anne Klein & Harpers Bazaar. Then tonight, a bunch of our close friends are coming over for a little house party. I debated for weeks whether I wanted to host or go out, but for the first time in eons, I decided to celebrate at home.

On Saturday, my in laws are coming over to babysit and Keith has a fun day planned (which I know nothing about).  Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to a fun birthday weekend!

Happy Friday & Birthday To Me!

Other than that, it’s been about two weeks since I’ve shared some favorite things, so here we go:

My Montreal post is up! We had the BEST trip, so if you’re contemplating on spending a few nights there, check it out. 

The big Shopbop sale has started making it the perfect time to get the fall items on your wishlist. Some things in my cart: these saddle colored loafers and this burgundy cami. 

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been hearing so much about intermittent fasting and I cannot lie, it intrigues me after seeing so many success stories.

On that topic, what is carb cycling and is it right for you?

I love this collection of classic striped shirts for mom and her child.

Apparently Puerto Rico is the place to vacation these days.

Easy slow-cooker chicken recipes that only involve 5 ingredients.

Amazon quietly launched a tool that acts like a dating app for shopping.

My good friend, Keiko, had cool sculpting done on her arms and has been so pleased with the results. She breaks down the process in a detailed post + video. 

A powerful read about expecting after miscarriage.

The perfect layering initial pendant necklace.

Wishing you all the best weekend!

    It’s your birthday?! Wow I feel so incredibly behind but this is a great reminder for me to include this date in my calendar so I will be ahead of the schedule next you …. okay, I’m back and it’s put into my calendar 🙂 Although some dislike birthdays the older they get, I love them because I find it gives me an opportunity to reflect on everything I’ve experienced in my life so far, and look forward to the future. But, I think you should also treat yourself too. These shoes are stunning and I’ve never sen them in this material and colour. Have the best of weekends darling xx
