The Champagne Edit :: Introducing Collections!

Happy Friday!! & the last Friday of Summer!

Back at it with the Champagne Edit to wrap up #champagnefashionweek here on the blog. The 80s def made it’s way back to NYFW so it’s been so fun to channel it here on the blog.

Also, you might have seen a fun new addition on the blog! I told y’all here I was going to do it so I’m so glad to finally pull the trigger.

In the top menu, there is a category called COLLECTIONS.

Think of these as a mini lookbook. I’ll do some with an accompanying blog post, like each one this week & some will just be edits I’m digging now.

In it, has some photos, a lookbook of inspiration, and where to get it. Check them out here!

If there are any looks you want to see, just let me know! I can’t wait to add more to it. I’ll try to get something in weekly. I will be going back to my Monday / Wednesday / Friday schedule of posting so the collections are a fun way to keep things fresh #onatuesdayorthursday

As far as the weekend, same ole plans here :: getting my apartment finished {in the middle of a huge reno!}, & then tomorrow, we are going to Half Moon Bay! Erik will spend the day golfing so I decided to park my weekend office by the ocean with a bottle of wine. It’s also a special place to us because it’s where we celebrated my birthday for the first time. It’s always fun to go back to places that are special in your heart.

Do you have a special place? Any fun weekend plans? Let me know!

EAT ME :: OVEN-BAKED BEEF MEATBALLS BY BON APPETIT’s HEALTHYISH

Meatballs are one of my favourite things to make and eat! They’re also easily to adjust to anyone’s liking. These are an easy yet healthy recipe that’s perfect for the weeknights – think dinner in less than an hour from start / finish / clean up. I also love the addition of the Ethiopian spice Berbere! Perfect for the cooler temps.

DRINK ME :: WATERMELON BASIL GIMLET BUCKETS by COOKING WITH COCKTAIL RINGS

Summer is coming to an end, so time to enjoy the last of the watermelon! I am a HUGE gin girl, so a gimlet {gin + lime + simple} is a favourite classic cocktail of mine. This recipe is great because the watermelon is so sweet on it’s own that you don’t need to add any additional sweeteners. Cheers!

READ ME :: STATE OF THE BLOG UNION: HOW THE BLOGGING WORLD HAS CHANGED

This is a fascinating article on blogging as a whole. From reading blogs since 2012 {shout out to The Skinny Confidential!} to following them on Instagram, to starting one of my own in 2015, to here we are in 2017, it’s definitely a changed world. The only consistency with blogging and the online world is change, so it’s so important to evolve. It’s easy to get caught up on “the simpler times” – believe me, I do this with Instagram on the daily, but it is exciting to be in an industry that is constantly changing with every minute of the day. If you are a blogger, you have to read this!

BUY ME :: BANANA REPUBLIC x OLIVIA PALERMO LONG MILITARY COAT

 During Fashion Week, Olivia Palermo released her collaboration with Banana Republic. The one piece that stood out to me was this beautiful military coat. I get MAJOR Michael Jackson Thriller vibes from it & would wear it like a dress. Though I don’t have a pair, this would look beautiful with some patent black Loubs. This coat is on my major lust list and I’m currently saving for it! How would you style this?

DANCE W/ ME :: HAYWYRE – DO YOU DON’T YOU

We were in Z Gallerie last weekend for a very exciting purchase! Basically, everything in my apartment I am redoing is centered around THIS. I’m not going to say what it is yet because it will ruin the fun, but it’s a custom piece that will get here in December / January. As we were filling out the form, I had to stop what we were doing to Shazam the dope song playing… which was this. The 2.35 mark gets me every time! It’s a future house jam by Haywyre {aka Martin Vogt}, that will make you feel good that transitions beautifully as it goes. Truly an aural masterpiece.

It was also released by Monstercat, so if you enjoy it, be sure to check out WRLD here!
