This week I…

+ found out that I’ll be in New York next weekend, for a very last minute trip (more on this to come soon!). I’ll only be in town from the 7th through the 9th, but if you’re going to be in the city for Fashion Week or anything else, let me know!

+ guest posted over on Natalie’s blog Natalie Dressed, where I participated in her new ‘Love Who You Are’ series. I bet you’d never guess what I named as my favorite body part!

+ enjoyed reading an article from The Atlantic on millenial spending habits, and what it could mean for the economy. Thanks to my buddy Meredith for sending it my way!

+ picked up these two faux mercury glass votives at Anthro. I’ve been collecting these because I want to use them all throughout the wedding (I figure the pretty flickering candlelight will look great in the suite!). I’m going to have quite a collection once this thing is all said and done, but I don’t mind. Joe might though.

+ want to remind you that today is your last day to enter the Clos-ette giveaway! Those closet organization accessories have to go to someone…might as well be you!

+ do not understand how tomorrow is September. September of 2012, y’all. WTF.

LINK OF THE WEEK: This post from Sarah. That’s it, the end. Just read it. I promise you it’ll be an amazing start to the long weekend.

Speaking of which — enjoy every second of it!

    I’m totally bawling after jumping over to Sarah’s blog, you are *SO* right, you just have to read that. I was telling Sarah that I was just taking a break from cleaning up kid puke and instead of being in a crappy mood, now I’m remembering that it’s still a good day (c: Thanks for the reminder! Have a great Labor Day and have fun in NYC!

      I’ll only be there for about 2.5 days, as part of a neat opp to go
      to the US Open! I’m hoping to attend the Reward Style party Saturday
      night, but that might be it. Too many events, too little time! :)
