Weekend Update

1. We are in the wonderful midst of spring sale season and so I thought on top of all the sale PSAs, I’d share today one of my favorite sale picks, this classic black leather tote from Reed Krakoff, now 40% off.

Black totes for work are one of my most frequently received bag requests and they are hard to find on sale! The “Atlantique” is a classic style which would fit the bill for work, travel, and even weekend. It even comes with a black patent pouch, a detail I love – you can just take the bag to work and grab the pouch with your essentials when you run out for coffee or lunch.

2. I enjoyed this read from NY Mag, about the things that Parisians do which amaze New Yorkers…and vice versa. I’ve found myself in Paris four times in the last year and I can comment that for me, there’s nothing better on a cold Parisian day than walking down the street with a hot drink in hand! I won’t be giving that up any time soon.

3. I’ve received a few emails from readers looking to travel solo. I love having a few days or even hours during a solo work trip to explore a new city.  Keeping in line with the Parisian theme above, here is a great article via The NYTimes about being a solo traveler in Paris.

4. This week I’d like to share an old favorite TV series of mine, which I recently found on Amazon – the entire series mind you – as available, and for under $20. The series is Daria, which I could watch over and over again.

If you love more sarcastic comedies and/or remember watching this back when MTV was better and laughing, I’d highly recommend picking up this DVD series! You’ll have hours of entertainment.

Enjoy your weekend!

    I almost forgot about Daria. I used to watch it all the time, so funny. I think it used to come on like after the Dilbert series, which they cancelled too prematurely. Didn’t know that the entire series is now available, gonna go check it out now.
    Have a good weekend.

    This NYmag article nails it regarding European/American differences. Most Europeans don’t even wear sweats on the way to the gym- they change there and change back when finished. Also funny how you learn to speak with a lower and more controlled tone, I now find Americans extremely expressive and sometimes exhausting in conversation. And I have to develop a thick skin with strangers, sometimes can’t believe how cold and indifferent they can be!
