Time is going by WAY too fast. Between being in my favorite place and watching a baby grow before my eyes, I just feel like time has never moved faster. We’re entering the usual “busy” season for work and this year my book is also releasing in the middle of it (!!!) so I’m fully trying to ENJOY these last somewhat calm moments. And oh how glorious these days have been. I have been pinching myself– I feel just filled with immense gratitude right now.
Here’s what has been on my radar:
ONE // Oui Academy
My internet friend Claire has an incredible creative agency (I interviewed her for my book!) and she’s now spilling her secrets for how she creates insanely cool stop-motion imagery for brands. What I love the most is that she’s not just sharing how to do the stop motion (which is in HIGH demand right now), but also the business behind it too. If you’ve been looking to jump into a creative field but don’t know how to get your foot in the door, this might just be a great place to start. (Or if you’re already into photography, this could be a great way to step up your portfolio offerings!)
Needed to highlight J. Crew’s current 40% off sale because so many of their coats are included. (Often they aren’t!!!) I’m so tempted to get this gorgeous hunter green coat…. I’ve been really into green lately and love that it would look great with all of my fall and winter outfits– navy, black, cream, and camel! And it’s a nice “color” while still feeling a bit like a neutral.
THREE // Nursing Bra to Sleep In
This is a “help me!” part. I am looking for a really comfortable nursing bra to sleep in. I want something that doesn’t feel like I’m wearing a bra, but has all the function and practicality of a good nursing bra. Does this even exist?! I’ve been wearing my normal ones to sleep in and they’re great during the day, but less than great at night. (I don’t love the ballet bra style so that eliminates a lot of options… unless there’s a magical one I’m missing.)
FOUR // Caraway Bakeware
I am getting inundated with Caraway’s new bakeware line on Instagram. And let me tell you… it’s working. I want the entire set. They’re slightly backordered right now, so if you’re looking for a Christmas gift for someone (or yourself), I wouldn’t wait.
No joke, at least a hundred people sent me this video parodying Nancy Meyers’ movies. Obviously, loved every reference but especially got a kick out of The Parent Trap one. Sooooo funny and genius. I watched it three times in a row.
