Happy Friday everyone! We are heading down the shore either tonight or tomorrow morning (tbd on how we feel after work!) for the weekend. I usually dread Labor Day weekend because it means summer is over, but I’m weirdly feeling okay with it right now. A few of Jack’s activities start back up and I’m excited to get back into a routine with him.
Here’s what has been on my radar this week:
ONE // The Perfect Couple on Netflix
My favorite (!!!) Elin Hilderbrand novel was just picked up by Netflix for a 6-episode series. I. Cannot. Wait. If you haven’t read The Perfect Couple yet, you must. I’m tempted to read it again just to refresh my memory. I cannot wait to see it come to life on screen and just as excited to see who they cast for the roles!
TWO // Puff Sleeve Corset Dress
We have a wedding coming up at the end of the month and I haven’t been super inspired by what I fit into in my closet… I bought this dress and I really hope it works! I love the green so much and I have some good shoe options for it too. Feels perfect for a late summer wedding by the beach.
Do you wish you could retain information better? This is such a fascinating video about a system for remembering information, specifically from reading. I don’t read paper books much anymore… but maybe I should? I will say when I listen to audiobooks, I tend to remember things better? It’s like I can “hear” the words in my head when I need to recall pieces from the book. (I also find myself telling Mike interesting facts as I go through books and that helps things stick better too!)
FOUR // Styling Cream
I need to share this styling cream from dae. I’ve been using it to tame my flyaways and love it so much. My hair tends to get greasy if I use creams so I use the tiniest bit of this and smooth it down with this comb situation and it works like a charm! I had tried hair spray before but it looked too crunchy, the cream just makes them lay flat in a more natural looking way. You could totally use more of it to get the “clean girl aesthetic” TikTok look too.
FIVE // Hidden Children’s Library
This is the absolute sweetest addition to Elsie Larson’s home: A Narnia inspired wardrobe that leads to a cozy reading nook. My inner child was squealing when I scrolled through this blog post. I wanted to climb right through the wardrobe myself…. genius!
