One visit to urgent care, a strep diagnosis and a prescription of antibiotics (all hail to the Z-PACK!) later, I finally feel like myself! Just in time, too… This evening, Mr. THD and I are headed for an overnight with friends to GERVASI VINEYARD for what’s hopefully a night of lots of wine drinking, good food and laughs… and wine drinking. Did I mention that? It will be a nice break away from all of the holiday and renovation craziness.
Now, let’s get our weekend off to a good start with this week’s Friday Link Love roundup!
What I’m Reading:
• If you’re an owner or an admirer of the new lines of “smart luggage” — you know, the ones that charge your devices while you travel?! — you definitely need to read THIS.
• Here are the TOP 5 COLORS TO DECORATE WITH NOW. How many can you check off in your home?
• Beautiful gift wrapping is almost as valuable as the gift inside — at least in my opinion. Try one of these 4 EASY GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS and add some WOW under your tree.
• Get a handle on those early morning, dark, winter wakeups — a.k.a THE WORST. This ONE TRICK FOR EASIER WAKEUPS will change your world… or at least your morning.
What I’m Making:
• I’m a fiend for comfort food during the winter. So it’s no surprise that I’ve already bookmarked this COQ AU RIESLING for my next easy, weeknight meal.
• Anyone else a big fan of Starbucks’ Cranberry Bliss Bars?! Make your own at home with this RECIPE DUPE!
What I’m Buying:
• For a bit of holiday sparkle, you need to check out this LAYERED Y-CHAIN NECKLACE. At under $50, Christmas might come a little early for some of us!
• By the way, since we’re talking jewelry… THIS CUSTOM MATCHMAKER PENDANT (which comes in assorted 10K or 14K gold) is the cutest gift for a newlywed, or your more sentimental friends/loved ones!
• Finding a versatile jumpsuit that you can wear from work to play is next to impossible. That is, until I found THIS ONE! It’s sleek and slim-lined and perfectly flattering whether worn under a VELVET BLAZER or on its own. It’s also under $80.
• Santa, please bring me these BLACK OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS!? Please and thank you. (P.S. — they’re on sale!)
• CLUB MONACO SWEATER DRESS, you had me at your pretty lace collar.
Have a great weekend!
