After getting back from Nicole’s bachelorette party, I was ready to have my mom come and visit and see the house. Life had other plans though and her flight was completely canceled and all the other flights were booked and she tried flying standby. Not going to lie, I was so disappointed. But she’ll be here in August. I just kept telling myself that at least she’ll get to see the house when it’s slightly more put together!
Here’s what was on my radar this week:
I know a bunch of you guys are BSC fans. I think you’ll be just as excited as I was to hear that Audible is releasing original audiobooks of The Baby-Sitters Club series. What a fun way to introduce new readers to the series… I can already see families listening to it on road trips. Oh, and Elle Fanning is narrating which is extra fun.
TWO // Vegan Leather Jacket
Leather jackets aren’t exactly my style, but I am very much into this vegan leather jacket in bone. The style looks more like the cut of a sweater than a jacket and the bone seems very versatile and a bit more in line with my personal style. And because it’s vegan, it’s also under $100!
THREE // Apollo 11: As They Shot It
This is such a cool interactive piece from the NY Times. It’s photos that the astronauts took along with their communication. I read through it a few times and just loved their point of view (literally) during the mission. This line made me laugh: “O.K., Houston. You suppose you could turn the Earth a little bit so we could get a little bit more than just water?”
FOUR // Target’s Adaptive Costumes
Target released a line of adaptive Halloween costumes. Absolutely GENIUS. Parents have been creating their own crafty costumes incorporating wheelchairs, but I think it’s a great sign of the times to see a big box retailer selling them. I love that anyone can go into a Target and walk out with a great costume now. It looks like the pre-orders have already sold out so I’m hoping that shows the brand (and others!) how wanted and needed products like this are!!
FIVE // Paris, Perfected
Meghan just launched a super affordable personalized Paris trip planning service. She LOVES Paris and always has the best recommendations at the top of her head. I’ve definitely leaned on her before my last two trips for advice and tips. And whenever she’s there I find myself screenshotting everything to remember.
