Weekend Notes

birthday weekendIt’s my birthday weekend (Saturday, the 28th – Libra season! ) and what I’m most looking forward to, is spending some time with close friends and family. I have a few dinners planned and if the timing works out, we may even go and see Hustlers. I haven’t been to the movies in ages, so hoping that ends up happening during my birthday weekend.

Enjoy this week’s roundup!

Along with some Shopbop favorites that I”ve already shared, I also ended up getting these earrings.

What no one tells you about taking (& returning from) maternity leave.

Have you heard of the term ‘VSCO Girls?’ I just learned it this past week after reading this Into The Gloss article. I was also fascinated to learn (from the same article) these so called ‘VSCO Girls’ are the reason that Mario Badescu’s rose facial spray is the #1 selling beauty item on Amazon. Crazy stuff.

In my quest for new couch pillows that look as good as they are comfy, I came across this pillow insert with a ton of great reviews. So will probably go that route & spruce them up with interchangeable pillow covers.

What makes ambition come & go?

I feel like this craze isn’t strictly just the Millennial generation and of course, I had to send this to my husband.

15 things that should never, ever go into the dishwasher.

Noticed the turtleneck sweater from the 2-piece knit set I shared is back in stock! Likewise, the knit skirt is currently available in limited sizes online but can be found in-store.

Can packaged foods be healthy?

The love story that inspired “The Little Mermaid.”

    Helena, I participated in the Elemis promo you did but they only sent me the balm and not the cloth which is sad because I was excited about the duo. Just wanted to let you know.
