Staycation going strong, sort of (Craig started plastering the mudroom yesterday). Thankful for the long weekend and a cold front to give us a break from the mini heat wave. Happy weekend friends!

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…
Remembering Neil Simon’s genius. The story about his first wife broke my heart.
Shameless plug, I just filmed my first big haul of the season and it’s going live on YouTube this Sunday! (J)
I always love Vanity Fair’s features but this was especially interesting—about the women who transformed Rolling Stone. (C)
It’s time for the big movies to come out. Have you seen the trailer for First Man with Ryan Gosling?
Noodles, noodles, and more noodles with this pork pad se ew from Spoon Fork Bacon. (C)
We’re not saying it’s fall already because it’s like 90-something degrees here. But when the weather does cool down a bit here’s a list of class fall movies you can curl up with a blanket (and pets of course) and watch.
If you have a problem overusing filler words, here’s how to banish them from your vocabulary for good.
Madewell has a new eco collection and the pieces are really cute. (J)
Some sage advice on how to ask for a raise.
SPOILER ALERT but did you guys watch Sharp Objects?! OMG!!
Europe is legitimately worried about overtourism.
Definitely making these blueberry cornmeal waffles this weekend.
You should most definitely make this 10-minute lime cracker pie for Labor Day weekend.
Finally watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and it was so fun, charming, and feel-good. If you have a rainy day this weekend you should absolutely watch it.
These fifteen smart and funny tips for life are so random, but really ring true.
Labor Day Sales
Anthropologie: Save an extra 40% on clothing and 20% on home sale.
I love these wide leg pants and pretty much anything from the bedding and pillows selection.
West Elm: Get up to 30% off with code SAVEMORE.
Thinking of getting these for my office along with this mirror I’ve been eyeing forever.
Rejuvenation: Free shipping and 20% off with code FREESHIP.
I finally splurged on new door hardware and got these deadbolts and door knobs.
Thank you for that article on how to ask for a raise! This is something I’ve been researching myself as I’m not really the pushy type and I tend to give in and this article definitely has some good pointers that I hadn’t thought of.
Thank you for posting the Sharper Objects link!! I have been wanting to confirm what I thought I saw and this finally helped fill in some gaps! #creepy!
Sharp Objects! 😉
I have a real problem with that classic fall movie list. They forgot the most important fall movie—MYSTIC PIZZA! I have a tradition, that starts the Friday after Labor day & runs until Thanksgiving, of Mystic Pizza Fridays. I cuddle up on the couch, eat pizza & watch that movie. Those people who made that list have no taste!
Also, “ The Holiday” with Cameron Diaz and Julianne Moore.
Filmed in LA and the UK and it is funny and romantic giving us hope that just maybe you can find love waiting just
about anywhere. One of my favorites!
That’s a great one.
