Dazed, Boho & Slightly Confused

Busy weekend here! Putting the finishing touches on a decorating project for a friend. Day off with hubs. Long run in prep for next weekend's half marathon (eeeeek), and much fatting it out. 

 

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Seals & Crofts, Summerbreeze Dazed and Confused was on tv. Which means I must stop everything I am doing and watch. Reminds me of my high school days. Cruising looking for something to do. Stoners. Trying to get our hands on some beers. Oh and my gig at Abercrombie and Fitch as a 'brand rep', schilling overpriced carpenter jeans between long breaks in the back watching Dazed and Confused on VHS. VHS people! The cologne we sprayed hourly was enough to get anyone high. Say it with me....alright, alright, alright.

What: As in, what went down this week/end. I helped the lovely Bettina and her equally awesome sister Roxana decorate some of their super cool space downtown, SnapSuites. I'd like to submit my husband for hubs of the year award: watching Daphne, packing our car, carrying everything, all while simultaneously hanging pictures and art work like a pro. Sunday we hosted a very fun brunch, where the St. Elder cocktails and maple syrup flowed like water. Stay tuned for more on both. Oh and I got in my last long run before the half marathon next weekend! Was worried since I tweaked my knee a bit running last week (ie, I took a major digger after hitting a rock.....at a stop light in front of like 20 cars, so much grace), but aside from being a little slower, miles were logged without incident. Good thing since I ate burgers on burgers, on french fries, on onion rings, on top of french toast and boozy brunch. 

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

H&M's younger sister brand (if Cos is an older, minimalist sibling?), & Other Stories debuted online shopping this week. Heavy on prints, sleek styling and the cool. I haven't taken the plunge yet with any purchases but this coat has piqued my interest.

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.
