5 For Friday
Hello Friday, all the way from the Gulf Coast/Naples, Florida! I managed to work around a crazy work schedule and steal some time away to catch some rays for a weekend (although, admittedly still checking email quite regularly to not be considered a true vacation, such is life with work these days. . .). But today is going to be a gorgeous, and hot, 87! Woo hoo! And hoping the predicted weekend storms, just stay away. But the really best part? Is I’m here with my best gal pal, someone who I’ve known and considered a confidant for almost 15 years. We’re doing our thing by hanging out, having some drinks, and talking, a lot. We’ve got so much to catch up on! Hope you enjoy the weekend ahead and the last Nor’easter doesn’t create too much havoc, if you’re in its path.
1–Off the shoulder shirts sure are making a come back strong this season, and this Ulla Johnson one is the one I have my eye on. Best part? Accompany typically offers up 30% your entire purchase at frequent, select times. Just have to hold strong ’til then.
2–A recent discussion coming into the light as of late is telling women to smile (after Hilary was told to do so at one of her gatherings), and I can tell you that I can’t even keep count the number of times I’ve been told to do so, and it irks me beyond belief. Because it’s true, men are never told to smile. Here’s a good article on the subject from late last year. And remember: smile, or not!
3–Ha! I actually did smile at this: In Greenpoint, Brooklyn, one laundry mat’s vending machine is serving up Plan B next to other life’s necessities that you might find you need while doing a load of laundry.
4–Excited for next week’s release on HBO of the Nora Ephron documentary! Will be watching that one along with “Amy” just released on Amazon prime.
5–Always and still on the lookout for cool shades, I spotted this Illesteva pair at Steven Alan, that I’m digging. When the designs of sunglasses cease to exist, so I can stop being pulled into wanting new pairs??
