Happy Friday! I'm back linking up with April to share a few things on my mind:
ONE: Humans of New York just finished visiting Iran! H's parents grew up in Tehran and his dad visits every year. I love seeing his photos and videos of family, and this series was a nice way to explore more Iranian cities and "meet" different people. The stories are the best -- especially this one and this one :)
TWO: I did yoga four times this week (!!!) that's a huge accomplishment because I haven't had the energy to work out in a long time. I figured out a time that works for Violet where she's happy playing in her bouncer while she watches me attempt cobra :) When she gets antsy (usually after 20 mins) I put her on a mat next to me and workout for another 10 mins. It's not the longest workout, but I'm just happy to be practicing again. I need to try some of these moves.
THREE: I ordered a set of Jo Jo Moyes books the other week (thanks to a promo I saw on the Today Show). The set included Me Before You, The Last Letter From Your Lover (two favorites) and two that I haven't read yet: Silver Bay and The Ship of Brides. Oh and if you haven't heard -- the sequel to Me Before You -- After You comes out at the end of the month! I can't wait to read it.
FOUR: My dessert of choice lately? Break and bake cookies! This isn't earth-shattering news but freshly baked, warm cookies are sooo much better than the prepackaged stuff. I also love that I can just make one or two instead of having a dozen sitting in the kitchen begging me to eat them! I bought classic chocolate chip this week -- white chocolate macadamia nut and chocolate chip peanut butter deluxe are up next :)
FIVE: It's Labor Day Weekend that means there are a lot of sales going on! Here are my favorite picks:
J.Crew Factory // 50% off everything (Ends 9/7) - I still want this striped boatneck tee and I love this black and white embroidered tee.
J.Crew // 30% off your order of $125+ - Code: GETSHOPPING (Ends 9/9) I know it's too early to be talking about wool coats but isn't this one pretty? I'll take one in mint or gray!! And this stripe shirt is perfect... (yes, I realize I have a problem).
Madewell // take 30% off fall essentials and an extra 30% off all sale styles (Ends 9/7) I tried this top on in the store and it's gorgeous! I totally regret not buying it (especially now that I can't find the plum color).
Nordstrom // save up to 40% on sale items (Ends 9/13) I love these strappy sandals (under $35!), patterned romper, and plaid shirtdress for Fall.
Old Navy // up to 60% off everything - I want this Halloween onesie and buffalo plaid dress for Violet + a stripe dress for me.
Have a great weekend!
