Crazy to think Labor Day Weekend is just a week away. This summer was strange as part of it felt like it dragged on forever and at the same time seems like it flew by. We recently met with a plumber about converting our garage to a master bed/bath and he gave us the go ahead so we are starting to plan the renovation. It’s so exciting to think we get to create a space that’s completely our vision. We’ve been pinning up a storm for inspiration since we won’t start until the end of September. I also got the initial designs back from Modsy for the nursery and I can’t wait to show you guys. We’re going to finish that first so stay tuned. Wishing all of you a great weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…

Farmacy Beauty is having a summer sale with 30% off order $120+ and 20% off all other orders with code SUMMER. I LOVE their Honeymoon Glow AHA Serum(because it only has 1% BHA-salicylic acid, I still use sparingly while pregnant) and Very Cherry Bright Vitamin C Serum.
I love interiors that feel slightly offbeat, it’s way more inspiring sometimes. I loved what Ariel Okin did with Lena Dunham’s NYC apartment. (C)
