Sale PSA: A pretty laser cut embroidered dress for summer from Saylor in both black and cream, now 30% off, the original classic Hunter rainboots in an array of colors, currently 30% off for a limited time, the classic Burberry quilted jacket in cream and red options, also 30% off for a limited time, and for those looking for a light parka option for spring, I like this soft anorak from Ali Ro, now under $200 with code FRNFAM.
1. Lately I’ve been feeling increasingly like a human moving tent. Maybe that’s why I’ve been buying more lipsticks…an easy way to feel prettier without the possibility of ripping a seam in a dressing room. As much as I like beauty products however, I don’t really follow all the new releases, and as a result some really cool ones come and go before I ever have a chance to check them out.
Last week as I was walking through Nordstrom however, I happened to see some of these Isabel & Ruben Toledo for MAC lipsticks and fell in love. I have always adored Isabel Toledo and have just one item of her design (a dress) which I’ll keep and treasure for life. By the way – the color I bought was Victoriana, a nice medium cool toned matte red.
2. I saved this article from the Wall Street Journal a while back – Revenge of the Anti It Bag. I was surprised to see the Hermes Kelly in there honestly – it’s one of my favorite bags but probably quite exposed by now. What do we think? By the way, the link I included goes to the Google Search – just click the WSJ link. Sorry, but the only way to get around a paywall if you don’t subscribe.
3. For jewelry fans, I really enjoyed this article from The Telegraph – How To Build A Fine Jewelry Collection. Some great viewpoints from various experts involved in the industry. I love jewelry myself and always welcome learning new perspectives as mistakes can be costly otherwise!
4. This week’s reading is a re-read for me – Alias Grace, by Margaret Atwood.
As some of you might know, I always enjoy at good Margaret Atwood read and Alias Grace is one I hadn’t read for years. It’s a bit of a “murder mystery” where you already know the killers, and enough time had elapsed from when I first read it, that I had forgotten significant portions of the plot. That made it really enjoyable for me to read again. A recommended read for any fans of historical fiction (it’s based on one of the most notorious murders in North America in the 19th century).
I wish you a wonderful weekend!
