The Champagne Edit :: Blue Light Blues


I don’t know about you but it has been a week. I am EXHAUSTED – from working on my new logo the early part of the week to being very busy with my full time job for the latter, I’m looking forward to decompress this weekend.

Erik leaves for London on Sunday for the week so really just spending quality time with him until he leaves. Is there anything in San Francisco we should do?

Last weekend, we saw Baby Driver & I cannot recommend it enough! Seriously phenomenal! If you liked Whiplash {one of my favourite movies, btw}, you will love Baby Driver. If you are looking for some weekend plans, go go GO!

I mentioned that I ordered blue light blocking glasses that get in today. Half the reason why I am so exhausted is because my eyes feel so strained from all the screentime so I’m very excited to put these babies to use!

If you think about it, I’m basically behind screens almost 24/7 with the exception of when I’m sleeping and that won’t change anytime soon soooo I’m really excited to see if these work. I will report back with a verdict!!

All right, that’s all I got!

What are you doing this weekend?

EAT ME }: Limoncello Parfaits by Giadzy:: The second I saw these show up on my Facebook feed, I saved that link SO fast! I love that it incorporates store bought ingredients like lemon curd vs making your own to make it super simple

DRINK ME }: Actually Good Cheap Wine: Rosé || Dark Horse Wine by Buffalo by Bay :: I LOVE this series because I love supporting other bloggers! I met Chelsea on instaram & am obsessed with her & her blog. She started a GENIUS series called “Actually Good Cheap Wine”. Read about her tips on how to find a damn good inexpensive wine & to make it better? The Dark Horse she’s talking about is only $9.99!

READ ME }: The Subtle Art of Not Giving A Fuck by Cherie Renee :: I’m sure you’ve seen this book all over the gram! I haven’t read it yet but I have to know after this super inspiring review by blogger {& a rad girlfriend of mine}, Cherie Renee. She outlined the two points that hit close to hand, & I gotta say, it got me to re-evaluate things too. Fun read!

BUY ME }: Pomme Chan X UO Printed Bomber Jacket by Urban Outfitters :: I bought this jacket last Friday & I have been living in it! If you follow me on Instagram, you know this.  I am a sucker for that retro chain print and I liked that the greens kiiiinda look like cannabis leaves. It’s super comfy & I personally love wearing it with athletic pants. Do note, it runs large so size down! I have an XS. See me in it here & here… aka the title image!

DANCE W/ ME }: Thando 1988 f/ Sir Charles – Losing My Mind :: This deep house track was released about 2 weeks ago & it is insanely good. Through stalking him on social media {it’s what I do}, it turns out he met Sir Charles in a Duane Reede, signed it to a label & here we be. It’s a killer track with fantastic lyrics – give it a listen! I seriously would not be surprised if this makes it on one of The Magician’s upcoming Magic Tapes.
