Life Lately

Here we are folks, the last Friday of August. I can’t believe tomorrow starts another month with the promise of a new season. I know I say this pretty much every year but this summer seems to have flown by! I didn’t get to do ALL the things I would have liked but the time spent with my daughter was enough to keep me busy. I miss her a lot…

I have a few posts I’m working on, one of which is my bedroom makeover. Unfortunately I hurt my back a few days ago and oh my, have I been in pain! I pretty much stayed in bed all week recovering. But the makeover will be up soon, promise!

Today I finally get to venture out for a long overdue hair appointment and I’m so looking forward to it. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of my bedroom… Have a great long weekend ahead! 

Here are a few things I’m loving this week…

I’ve had a lot of time to watch Netflix and found some great dramas. If you’re looking for some great recs for your down time here are my new faves:

  • THE LODGERS, a great mild horror film
  • MADAME BOVARY, a sad and incredibly painful twist of events for a young bride
  • SUITE FRANCAISE, based on true events, a fantastic film of courage amidst war torn France
  • BIG EYES, a woman’s struggle to find her courage to leap into independence 


  • LLBean is having an extra 25% off thru Tuesday, September 4 with code LABORDAY (the perfect time to stock up on my favorite stripe cotton rugby and fisherman sweaters!)
  • JCrew is having an extra 40% off new arrivals AND an extra 50% off final sale items with code BIGSALE! This open sweater-blazer in navy or grey is a fall must have! Also the perfect time to grab a pair of preppy GOLA sneakers and classic Penny Loafers.
  • SEPHORA is having their Beauty Insider Appreciation Event from 08/30 thru 09/03. Member tiers: ROUGE get 20% off (use code YESROUGE), VIB 15% (use code YESVIB) and INSIDER (use code YESINSIDER) to get 10% off all products! Stock up on some of my favorites: makeup remover, translucent loose setting powder and smoothing hair serum
  • My favorite on-line home buying shop is having a Labor Day Clearance sale! Joss & Main / Wayfair never disappoint with the myriad of home collections. I recently got this tufted headboard for my bed and now shopping for wall art for a gallery wall I’m curating.
