friday things


have you ordered your FREE squad goals sticker? get on that ya big dummy. can’t wait for mine to arrive.


look at this pretty wallpaper from wayfair of all places. comes in 9 colors and it’s removable.

i don’t even know where to begin! honestly haven’t been this excited about a food in so long. only the french would take a basic bread and turn it on it’s head and into something fabulous. gascon sourdough cornbread. i want fall. i want soup. and i want this.

speaking of fall. fully feeling this hat. dreaming of pairing it with this dress for a september wedding in new york.

i will see the shit out of this. absolutely here for it.

and finally i would be a bad blogger if i didn’t talk about the nordstrom anniversary sale. which is now officially open to the rest of us non cardholding ding dongs.

here are my picks:

this diffuser. i don’t even burn candles much anymore. the clean smells of essential oils feel much more me now. people comment when they walk in the house y’all. “what’s that awesome smell?” usually i diffuse lavender, orange, rosemary, cedarwood and frankincense. that combo is heaven. this one seems nice too.

this cool down mattress pad. could it help with hot flashes?

this very pretty comforter and sham situation.

and this facial toning kit which i have heard nothing but good things about.

ok then. c ya later.

just great

chances are you have seen this farmhouse pinned 9 ways til sunday (do i have that right? or is it 9 gays at a sunday brunch?) you don’t have to answer. anyway…i’m not sure i’d have called this a farmhouse. but what do i know? i’m not the farmhouse expert despite my best efforts. looks like a little gothic cottage to me. again, i’m basically just the peanut gallery. i digress.

no matter it’s architectural style or provenance it’s just great.

i love that it’s painted head to toe deep blackish green.

it’s lived in and designed by architects tsao and mckown and i wouldn’t change a thing.

there’s a certain zen farm camp-ness to it. it’s very commune meets thomas o’brien. did i nail that? thoughts?

july vibes

we are so far through july already that i contemplated skipping july’s vibes. i’ve said it before and i’ll say it infinitum- SUMMER. IS. HARD. but really though, this summer has been pretty hard here. we’ve had more than our share of setbacks this summer and we are over it. i’d like a vacation from myself. and my pantry.

anyway…i will never miss a vibes unless i’m dead or retired and praise be i am neither.

so here we are:

since we’re well past the 4th and it’s red, white and blue-ness i went in with a vibe of eating juicy fruit in your air conditioned granny’s estate.
