It’s Friday and it’s going to be in the 70s all weekend! That is reason to celebrate. It was so muggy in the city yesterday I could actually see the humidity hanging in the air from the 27th floor of my meeting in midtown. The worst! Before getting into this week’s links, I have to send out a huge heartfelt thank you for your responses on the survey. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the honest, candid feedback- it’s going to make a world of difference as I implement changes to the site over the coming months. The survey will be up until September 22nd, so if you haven’t weighed in, you can do so here! Now… how about some links and a few updates?

Tiiieks! Do you own a pair? I’m hankering for some of these super comfy flats to keep my feet in tact as I run from place to place this fall. I think my first choice would be the camel, but they’re out of my size, so how do we feel about tangerine?

I can find Pinterest really overwhelming at times, but then you come across a pinner like carOlina (found via Apartment 34), and my jaw just drops. Aren’t her boards incredible?

A granola bar with an oatmeal cookie streusel? Nuff’ said.

Lipstick- let’s dish. I’m ready to get rid of all the crappy tubes floating around my bag and get one or two go to stand out shades that serve to brighten up my whole face. Cause let’s be honest, most days I only get mascara and lipstick on. Do you have a favorite brand or shade? I’m leaning towards Nars

Do you watch Orange is the New Black? I spotted Sophia in the city yesterday! And then happened to be sitting next to a Broadway performer who has worked with the character Crazy Eyes at the exact same time. #nycmoment

Do you really know how to read a recipe? I definitely learned a few things.

I may or may not be addicted to the Soul Cycle blog.

In other things I’m addicted to- Food52. Do you visit their site? It’s incredible! Favorites as of late include How to Decode a Wine Bottle and How to Cook with Lemongrass.

Bri’s piece on red flags and patterns with people or friends in your life really struck a chord with me. Do you ever feel this way?

Aaand finally did you hear? For the entire month of September I’ll be digging through the CC food archives and sharing the best of the best when it comes to fall recipes on our Facebook page! This week included Bruléed Pumpkin Oatmeal and Honeycrisp Gorgonzola Crostini… yum.

That’s about it, friends. I’m off to wrap up this work week, tidy my apartment, and prep for a weekend full of visitors! Should be fun. Have a good one. xx
