Nicely, we simply had A BLAST at The Meridian Expertise Weekend that the unbelievable Albie single-handedly organized. It was a HUGE enterprise and to nobody’s shock, she nailed it. We couldn’t have been extra grateful to be part of it and meet so many actually inspiring new mates. If you happen to have been interested in it/wished to go, we extremely suggest going subsequent yr. We hope that y’all additionally had a very good week and are actually prepared for some hyperlinks…and pics:)
This week’s house tour is designed by the unbelievable Heidi Caillier. On this single picture, you’ll be able to see 4 areas and whereas they’re all so totally different, they completely discuss to one another with the usage of related colours, woods, and shapes. It’s simply an superior and provoking house that we extremely extremely suggest you are taking a peek at:)
From Emily: I’ve three summer season/seaside, simple, can’t put down novels that make you’re feeling heat and completely happy (do you have to really feel like studying about love and romance). I just lately fell in love with Christina Lauren which FUN FACT is definitely two individuals – mates, one’s identify is Christina and also you guessed it, the opposite is Lauren. These books have actually good banter and wit – not LOL however simply individuals who I prefer to suppose I’d be mates with. I ponder if having two mates writing collectively helped it learn higher and dare I say even deeper. Not that it goes tremendous literary, but it surely’s simply environment friendly and but considerate in the correct methods. They’re rom-com fashion books, not overly erotic however no creepy lifeless baby thriller which I discover is one of the best for my anxiousness (I don’t have anxiousness sometimes however loads of these “lady within the window throughout from the lake” fashion thrillers would make me really feel unsettled earlier than mattress so I simply don’t go there anymore). I believe that this duo writes books that I can soar into inside the first web page, and get misplaced in. I began with The Soulmate Equation (Kindle and Native), then Love and Different Phrases (Kindle and Native), and simply began One thing Wilder (Kindle and Native) this week. Don’t fear – I combined in Malibu Rising (Kindle and Native) within the center (which I LOVED), Ebook Lovers (Kindle and Native), and am beginning Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (Kindle and Native) after this one. There is no such thing as a disgrace in my summer season kindle novel sport
From Caitlin: OH BABY. This week I met up with a buddy who seemed SO stylish and relaxed and pulled-together – like a personality in a Nora Ephron film – and I misplaced my thoughts over her gauzy textured pants, which have been SO smooth and light-weight and flattering. I believed they’d be fairly costly (they seemed luxe, regardless of the tie-waist) and I used to be THRILLED after I discovered that they have been beneath $100 and that they arrive in 5 totally different colours, 3 totally different lengths, and in sizes XX-small to XX-large. They’re breezy and ideal for summer season however they don’t essentially wrinkle in the identical means that linen does, which makes them even higher in my e book. I ordered a pair in black buuuuut I’ve my eyes on the sage, too (fingers crossed they go on sale quickly!).
From Mallory: My sister eloped in Vegas final weekend (IT WAS SO MUCH FUN) however I noticed I didn’t have a very good clutch that might maintain my cellphone, lipstick & bank cards…I noticed I used to be working out of time to seize one in-store, however thank god this $11 purse confirmed up within the nick of time. If you happen to’re going to a elaborate occasion and considered your purse means too final minute (and also you don’t wanna spend some huge cash since you already purchased a brand new costume/outfit…) then this one is for you (I obtained it in apricot but it surely is available in like 10 totally different colours too). If you need deets on my costume and footwear I additionally go them VERY final minute from Amazon (truthfully this complete look was “primed”). The costume was $50 and I obtained it hemmed for the vegas look. It did the truth is shed A LOT and the feathers will get caught in your armpits if it’s scorching however I don’t suppose I might have discovered a greater costume for a Vegas elopement. Then the footwear I actually would suggest…tremendous inexpensive and nice for summer season! They obtained me by means of the marriage to the reception and to the vegas golf equipment and a late-night taco bell cantina. All in all a really profitable outfit for a really enjoyable time:)
From Ryann: I can’t cease making this sandwich that has been throughout my Tik Tok feed. It’s known as the Grinder salad sandwich and is a) simple to make b) scrumptious and c) methods my fiancé into considering I’m a very good cook dinner. I’ve had variations of such a sandwich many occasions at sandwich retailers however after I realized I could make it so simply at house and it truly tastes restaurant high quality, my thoughts was a bit of blown. You may actually use any form of cheese and cured Italian meat however I’ve been doing turkey, salami, and spicy salami however the true star is the salad dressing that’s simply mayo, purple wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. You combine that every one along with iceberg lettuce, purple onions, and banana peppers and layer it in your sandwich and wow… it’s unreal. I believe you’ll be able to simply make it for a bunch of individuals and could be excellent for a pool celebration or seaside day. I don’t know what else to say aside from strive it and thank me later!!
From Jess: Talking of weddings, an enormous and thrilling shift on the marriage visitor costume plan! This previous weekend was a giant step in my maturity (she says very begrudgingly) as a result of I used to be compelled to get a storage unit. Extra on that in a minute. One very thrilling end result was discovering certainly one of my mother’s outdated attire that’s excellent for my buddy’s wedding ceremony (proven above)! So since my costume was now going to value $0, I made a decision to get a really dreamy pair of footwear. I actually wished a camel-colored shoe and ideally one with a cool form. Enter these puppies. I really like the bizarre heel (that received’t sink into grass), the sq. toe, the fragile straps, and the cool chain strap element…so all of it. FYI I actually wished an ankle strap as a result of I’m a dancing queen at weddings and a mule wasn’t going to chop it. I do know you received’t see most of it because the costume is lengthy however these are FUN going out footwear that may work with a ton of various outfits. Additionally, I really like the model’s (Alohas) sustainability mission. If you happen to don’t find out about them I extremely recommend you test them out! Em’s blue cowboy booties are from them too:)
Additionally From Jess: So sure, I now have a small storage unit as a result of my dad is downsizing his firm’s warehouse the place all of our household stuff has been for years. Truthfully I’m fortunate to have had entry to it for so long as I did. However with no house giant sufficient to carry the issues I nonetheless need (ie household heirlooms, images that I plan on digitizing this yr however nonetheless will preserve, American lady dolls, and many others.) I wanted to recover from the concept of paying for storage for an unknowable period of time. Cool cool cool. Now, I NEED ADVICE! Any tips about one of the simplest ways to retailer garments? Vacuum Sealed baggage? Every other common long-term storage ideas? I wish to do that proper and protect every thing as finest I can.
That’s it for this week. Hope the remainder of your day is nice and see y’all tomorrow. xx
