I would like to start off by thanking all of you for your patience while I took a mini break from the blog. Many of you who follow me on Instagram and Twitter, may know that I recently had my baby boy. That’s right, Cooper Alan is now apart of this world and my life, and I couldn’t be happier. The past month, I have been a little busy getting ready for Cooper’s arrival. Now that a little bonding time has passed, I am happy to be back to blogging because I missed you all! My weeks aren’t what they once were, but I am getting used to life with a baby and really good at typing with one hand. One thing is for sure, I am starting to miss fun summer plans. Usually this time of year, I’ve spent many hours by a pool and enjoyed fun summer activities in the city. Life may be a bit different, okay a lot different, but I am working hard to find my way back to a happy medium. That being said, I hope that this weekend my husband, baby, and I can get out of the apartment for some NYC summer fun! In the meantime, I have had a lot of downtime roaming the Internet and found some fantastic must-reads for this edition of Weekly Finds. So this weekend, while you stay in with the AC blasting, check them out! Also, don’t forget to visit the blog and read up on my recent outfit posts. There are a lot of great ideas for how to dress your best this summer! Have a great weekend!
FINGER LICKIN’ GOOD: When I was in the hospital after giving birth, my brother brought me a fried chicken sandwich from David Chang’s new eatery, Fuku. There isn’t much to the sandwich but the red sauce makes it mouth watering good. If you’re a fan of Chang’s ramen bar and fried chicken dinner, then this is the sandwich for you!
PALETTE PLAY: I am a big fan of Victoria McGinley’s blog. She has the most stunning pictorials and this decorating post is no exception. I am in love with how she has combined Mediterranean blue and gold. I’ll definitely keep this in mind when I redecorate next.
AS IF: It’s the 20th anniversary of one of my favorite flicks, Clueless. From an early age, this movie’s costumes inspired my own fashion and still do to this day! If you too are a fan then you have to read Elle Magazine’s interview with the film’s costume designer, Mona May.
SUMMER BEAUTY: One thing you need to know about me is that I am cursed on the hair front. I have very fine, limp hair that has zero volume. That is why this Refinery 29 article about the best new hair texturizers out there is right up my alley!
FUN IN THE SUN: Have you jumped on the flamingo train this summer? Lately flamingos have been all the rage from prints on accessories, dresses, to pool toys. If you’re not on board yet, take a look at this blogger’s flamingo themed pool party to inspire you.
AIN’T HE CUTE: My baby Cooper may not know it yet, but he is going to be the most stylish boy in Manhattan. While browsing online, I found out that Joe Fresh sells baby clothes. I really can’t decide which bodysuit I love more, but at these prices, I can definitely have more than one!
