Anyone who knows me understands my absolute obsession with stylish stationary. There’s just something fantastic about reading an actual note, or crossing off an item on a to-do list that can’t be replicated on any electronic device. And this is why I’m so excited for Russell+Hazel’s upcoming Back to School sale happening August 15 – 16 for 25 percent off all office essentials. I have my eye on this acrylic box to help in some make-up organization and these sleek file folders.
Speaking of sleek, I’m an unapologetic fan of Gwyneth Paltrow. If you don’t subscribe to her Goop e-newsletter, you should check it out. It’s chock full of great recipes, travel suggestions and wellness tips. My favorite post so far has been this one featuring GP’s packing advice. I absolutely hate checking luggage (I’m always slightly suspicious that I’ll never see my suitcase again) and this post offers some great pointers on how to pack minimally yet still remain stylish with well-edited clothes and accessories.
Adele’s cat-eye technique is almost as admirable as her voice. And no matter how hard I try, I just can’t replicate the look. But I’m hoping this video from Refinery 29 will help me. Baby steps.
And for any of you who appreciate a moustache (and a non-ironic one at that), here’s a funny tribute to Olympic gymnast Tomas Gonzalez’s most famous facial feature.
