Sunday came so fast this week. I’ve spent a lot of my time preparing for my trip to France and making sure everything is in order before I leave tonight. I shot a cocktail but didn’t have enough time to get it up, so that will be on the blog tomorrow. HINT: I’m making something with a French based spirit in celebration of my trip to France. I’m going to take a lot of photos and try to update the blog atleast once while I’m there. Maybe my Sunday kind of love post next week will be a Paris edition. One can only hope! 😉
- Last weekend my livingroom was on The Everygirl again. I know you’ve seen my livingroom a bunch of times by now, but the article is here incase you want to check it out. I think I’m going to do the One Room Challenge in October by myself this time around. I’m working on so many projects in the apartment that I feel like I’m a bit overwhelmed and that I can easily get distracted. Doing the challenge will help me stay motivated and focus on getting another room totally completed. At this stage, my bedroom just needs wallpaper, which means I should probably just order it. That will force me to put it up. This is the one I’m getting. I took advantage of Labor Day sales and ordered the items I linked to last Sunday. When I return from France there will be a new kitchen table, chairs, and a rug for the kitchen. All the kitchen will need to be complete, is some art and styling. I’d really love to get a new light fixture for that room as well. I was thinking this one. I will keep you updated about the One Room Challenge and what I will be concentrating on once it starts.
- Imbibe Magazine included me in their Summer #imbibegram roundup. My Dark ‘n Stormy Popsicles were one of their favorites this Summer! They were one of mine too. Get the recipe on A Beautiful Mess!
- Speaking of ABM and popsicles, my Gin + Tonic Popsicles went up this week and they are AMAZING. Super refreshing and easy to make at only four ingredients. Summer isn’t over yet!
- Voting closed for the Readers Choice portion of the SAVEUR Magazine Blog Awards. Each category has a Readers Choice and Editors Pick, so I have two chances to win an award. I was on the fence about if I should go or not, but I decided that I should and booked my flight and hotel this week. I will be in Charleston 10/1-10/3. If you have any recommendations please send them my way. I have always wanted to go to Charleston, so this was a great excuse! Wish me luck.
Stay tuned for a new recipe and follow me along on Instagram to see all of my France adventures. Au revoir! xo
