Weekend Reading

I’m feeling very Carmen Sandiego this month.   We’re presently in Portland, Oregon.  I took the red-eye back from SF on Sunday (had the best time) slept in my bed for all of three nights, and flew out here on Thursday.  We have another wedding (the last of the season) and it’s a special one.  Stefan’s oldest friend in the world is getting married (he lives in Taiwan, so we don’t get to see him very often.)  Once we’re home, we are in NYC for two nights and then head to Lake Placid for four nights.  Things simmer down considerably after that… and then it’s fashion week.  Besides the travel, work is busy, I have several big projects going on here, and I’m working on a full rebrand for the site.  I thrive when I’m busiest, but if we’re being honest, I could use a little more sleep.  Alas, these are what they call first world problems.  I can’t complain when so much good stuff is happening.
  • These foil lunchbags (pictured above) are just so cool.  (Also, I’m really digging this blog lately – Ivania is all sorts of talented.)
  • Which blush goes best with your skin tone?
  • How amazing is this?
  • Lastly, be sure to check out my closet on Threadflip.

      Ahh you grew up there? It was so beautiful! I wish we had more time to enjoy the city but I really loved it.

      I know – I cannot wait for a weekend at home. I think we might stick around Labor Day Weekend – just because we’re both so tired from traveling so much!!

      I know – can you believe they are a DIY project!?

    I love the bag! I need the one in sliver. I am also loving the heart trend! I think the elbow patch cardi’s are really cute!

    Hearts make me happy! Wish I’d picked up that Old Navy heart sweater. Now it’s sold out. 🙁

      So sad! I think J.Crew still has their version… not positive though!
