Harper’s Bazaar - Ann Dowd talk’s about playing one of the most hated women in television right now….Aunt Lydia from A Handmaid’s Tale. Read how she speaks about her character being radicalized in Gilead and on using her own life to create this character.
Travel & Leisure - Ummmm I guess Ive been doing it all wrong! Click to see all the coolest amenities you can receive from various airlines while flying economy! On this note, I would love to hear from you if you use a credit card thats associated with an airline. I’m looking into business ones and can’t decide. Thanks!
Vogue - A peek inside fashion icon and Moda Operandi co-founder, Lauren Santo Domingo’s stunning Hampton home. Although we would expect nothing less from LSD, the layers in this old world yet newly built pattern paradise really blew me away. Lauren hired Greenwich, CT based designer Virginia Tupker to help with the design and it is perfection.
Maybe its just me but it doesn’t feel like Fall is being thrown in my face this year. Usually by August you start to see it everywhere. I’ve worked in retail forever so seeing wool sweaters in a stockroom after 4th of July doesn’t phase me, but there has been a refreshing change this season. Its given me a sense of excitement for this transitional period and I’m crossing my fingers for leather jacket, skirt, and sneaker weather over the next couple of months. Sharing some pieces I’m loving so far:
recipe - OK this is not a specific recipe per say, but we had dinner with our neighbors last night and she made the most DELICIOUS quinoa salad! Make a big batch of red quinoa. Grill up some veggies and chicken thats been marinated. Once everything is done combine with fresh lemon juice, EVOO, salt, pepper, and fresh herbs (I think she used cilantro and flat leaf parsley). Now how’s that for an off the cuff recipe?! I really like this one because its the kind of thing you can make a big batch of on a Monday night.
beauty - My absolute favorite lip oil. I use this all year round. It smells like mint and feels great…honestly I have yet to find anything better. Oh and its organic!
non-dairy - Have you visited Kourtney Kardashian’s website/blog yet? I remember seeing something about it coming soon a few months ago but then never followed up online or on Instagram. This week I was looking up almond milk recipes and this one popped up. If you watch KUWTK you know Kourtney is a clean (eating) freak so it comes at no surprise that this was recently featured on her new site. If you’re an almond milk drinker do yourself a favor, turn the bottle around and read the ingredients. I was not-so-pleasantly surprised by ours and have recently switched to this one.
entryway - I love this inspiration from studio mcgee’s blog. I’ve been on the hunt for a console for our dining room/living room. Its one space right now and I feel like breaking it up a bit and adding another focal point will complete the space.
I always get questions about where I shop for the boy’s clothes. I’ve never done “back to school” shopping before for Luke because he wears his clothes for what feels like forever. But he just had a little growth spurt and doesn’t really have much that fits going into this Fall (especially shoes), so I’ll be putting some new outfits together very soon. I‘ll do a little roundup in the next few weeks but for now wanted to share where I shop for the Luke and Harry:
h&m - love their sustainable line
jacadi - they have the best skinny pants:)
