1. This weekend, I’d like to publicize a call for help! The weather warmed up dramatically this week, and I’ve started looking for a pair of great pair of summer sandals that I can walk around for extended periods in. I found a pair that I loved almost two years ago, and they’re now getting a little ratty.
So far the candidates are the two above – one from Stuart Weitzman (but at $340 pricey for a miles upon miles walking cork sandal), and this Franco Sarto in tan – on super sale for under $40. I’ve ordered the latter, but am still looking for more options. So if you have any summer sandals you could recommend that have just a bit of a wedge heel (I find them more comfortable than completely flat ones) – please share!
2. Most of these are pretty well known, but I thought this round up of 11 common themes amongst the “insanely stylish”, via WhoWhatWear, was a good reminder and a quick read.
3. I have always been fascinated by the story of Wendi Deng and Rupert Murdoch (articles about them are right up there along with the Daily Mail for my favorite morning reads). I found this article, newly available online in its entirety in Vanity Fair, to be an engrossing read covering the rise and fall of their relationship, and perhaps the woman. For those who like long, gossipy reads over a cup of tea.
4. I’ve mentioned a few times how much I love my five year journal on my blog, and I continue to give it as gifts to just about everybody.
I wanted to share a new favorite discovery of mine – also a five year journal, but called Q and A a Day.
It has the same five year format, but asks you to answer a different question each day of the year. What’s cool is that you can see how you were answering the same question in previous years…and track your progress!
I’ve already started to use mine but am afraid how I will pack all these journals on my trips. I can’t wait until I reach a year and can look back at old entries.
Have a wonderful weekend!
