Friday Edit, No.17

Is it me, or has this week gone by particularly fast? It’s probably because I know not going to be working much next week and I have a to-do list about a mile long…you know how that goes.

It’s been delightfully Fall-ish in Chicago this week, so I’ve officially removed all my summer tops and bottoms and moved my sweaters into my closet. Let me tell you, it feels good. And I’m getting rid of a good chunk of Spring/Summer clothes that I didn’t wear this year, so I’m feeling light as a bird. Project Intentional Shopping still well underway. 
If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you already know that I’ve been reading The Woman in Cabin 10 and really enjoying it – I’d recommend it! I also started listening to a new podcast, Accused. It reminds me a good deal of the first season of Serial, so I really like it. I also tend to prefer murder/mystery/suspenseful things, so this is right up my alley. (Or down my alley, as Mike would say)
I was doing some planning for Holiday things for Elisabeth Ashlie yesterday and it got me in the mood for Christmas already! Ahh. It feels to early, but it also feels right. Know what I’m sayin?
Speaking of EA, how adorable are these little ring dishes? I just want to put them all over my apartment. 
I feel like I’m about thiiiiiiiiis close to pulling the trigger on this beautiful and perfect and timeless and classic and beautiful tote. It’s just. so. perfect.

If you need a laugh and you haven’t already seen this, you are welcome.

    I just bought the Cuyana tote about a month ago. I've been carrying it every day since it came in the mail for both class+work and I absolute LOVE it. It's the perfect size, the leather is so soft, and it is very well-made!

    • I also have the Cuyana tote. I was gifted it almost two years ago. I use it everyday for work, travel and as a baby bag. It's such good quality that after all that use, it still looks brand new. No wear or tear on the bottom corners either which is great. I can't recommend this tote and brand enough!

  3. I seriously cannot make it through the first 10 seconds of the Bad Lip Reading video. I am laughing so hard that I am crying. Lauren – this is hilarious. I am going to have to check out the whole site to see what else I may have missed. Thank you for the laugh! Have a great weekend!

    This is a great alternative for a daily tote:
    I snagged one during the Anniversary Sale and have loved using it the last couple months.
