Phew what a weekend. I was on Daphne duty solo with hubs out of town on a man weekend. Not even enough time to do passive aggressive shopping. I did however, take miss D out to her first big girl brunch with Lissy (A Girl in Boston), my fave brunching partner in crime. I needn't have worried about the little one's manners, she handled it like a pro.

 

 

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Read a great article in the WSJ magazine on the family Yorn dynasty. Which made me revisit some faves of the performer brother Yorn, better known as Pete Yorn. Now I get why he did the album with ScarJo (which was great btw). No, seriously. Pete Yorn + Scarlett Johannsen, Relator.

What: As in, what went down this week/end. See above. Lots of Daphne time. I did manage to get online long enough to buy her some new neon pink moccs. That was about it. Despite my best efforts to dress her in neutral shades, miss thing digs through my closet to find every single pink item of clothing I own, and then proceeds to put it on and prance around the house. Already?!

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

For all the moms out there- I got you. Spanx opens this week at Natick Mall on October 24th. The first 100 people through the doors will receive a FREE Spanx product. Join them from 6-8 for the grand opening party.

Furla opens in Copley Place, this Thursday October 17th. Swing by their Haute Happy Hour, 6:30-8:30, to celebrate with I Am Khatu, the Boston Fashionista, and Notes on a Lifestyle. RSVP to furlaboston@hs-pr.com.

RUN, don't walk to your computer. Shopbop (code Family25) + Saks (code FRNFAM) = running Friends and Family. Get there.
