Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start and that you had a good weekend. My sister and her fam are in town, seeing studio spaces and taking measurements for their new home (if you missed it, they are moving here too this summer!). So my weekend was a mix of family time and rest (the second shot had me so tired!). It was so nice to see Zoe (my two year old niece!), and maybe I am crazy but I feel like she grew SO much in just a month. As for this week, I’m just feeling behind on work so playing lots and lots of catch up. Also, it is HOT here in Charleston.. I wasn’t prepared for how warm May would be here, but I have to say, I kinda love it!
This Week’s Good Things, 5.4.21
The Serpent on Netflix
Oh my god. This show. A girlfriend told me I needed to watch it. The sell was that it was about a gem dealer in Thailand who also happened to be a con artist and serial killer. AND, it’s based on a true story. I had to watch it. I saved it for the day after my second vaccine and whoa, it is a treat. A scary treat at that. I will warn you that you need to pay very close attention (it moves quickly and there is quite a bit of dialogue in French that is subtitled). But whoa. it’s terrifying, in the most addictive sense. Also, Jenna Coleman’s seventies wardrobe has me craving all of the oversized sunglasses, kaftans, and maybe a headwrap? TBD. Cannot recommend this show enough but just be prepared to be very scared.
Amazon the Drop Restock!
I’m so thrilled to tell you that Amazon restocked the staples dresses I designed with them! There’s the midi dress (pictured above), the big kaftan (my ultimate fav fav fav), and the sweet little puff sleeve babydoll. Ship dates depend on style but most will ship between 5/6 and 5/9 – YAY. In case you missed the launch announcement, this blog post has photos of all of the styles. Makes me nostalgic for my old apartment!!!
This Delightful Water Pitcher
I had been in the market for a new water filter pitcher (in New York I just drank tap water) and was just going to get a regular old Brita but then Claire and Erica raved about this glass one in their newsletter literally just as I’d put the Brita in my cart. This pitcher is beautiful! It was easy to set up and I really love it. I notice a big difference in how the water tastes, and it’s also very pretty. I hate that I love how nice it looks on my table, but here we are. It’s great.
Jenn Griffith’s Surfboard Art
This is so cool – Jenn Griffith is a local studio artist in Charleston. Her paintings are heavily influenced by the coast. She paints large canvases and sells prints but what I love most are her repurposed surfboard paintings. Isn’t this one amazing? Follow her instagram right this way!
