Carousel: Summer Storms & Space Shuttles!

CarouselToday’s outfit: Yoana Baraschi skirt, Michael Kors watch, Kate Spade bag, L.A.M.B. heels.

Happy weekend! It’s been a very exciting day over here: my husband, who volunteers with the aircraft restoration team on the Intrepid, was inside the Enterprise space shuttle today, fixing it & fussing around! So amazing, & very meaningful for him. He always wanted to be an astronaut! I’m really proud of him.

I had such a fab time in Los Angeles earlier this week, but it’s great to be home, too. I’ve been putting together a little travel diary to share with you — stay tuned for Monday!

The Ultimate Guide To Writing Better Than You Normally Do… Hahah!

Procrastination is an alluring siren taunting you to Google the country where Balki from Perfect Strangers was from, and to arrange sticky notes on your dog in the shape of hilarious dog shorts. A wicked temptress beckoning you to watch your children, and take showers. Well, it’s time to look procrastination in the eye and tell that seafaring wench, “Sorry not today, today I write.”
