weekend forecast

Hey, remember when I used to do these Weekend Forecasts every week? Those were good times. But hey, it’s back for today – and we should really be living in the now, not wondering what the hell I’ve been doing with my Fridays for the last two months. Right? Right. So, here’s what I’m up to this weekend:

  • Fostering quite possibly the cutest dog alive (not counting my Daisy, of course, who is above all comparison), and doing my best to find him a home before my hubs falls in love with him. I’m telling you, friends: rescue dogs are where it’s at. 
  • Reallyreally wanting this necklace from Alexis Russell’s new collection, which somehow manages to be dainty, edgy and original all at once. I love the oxidized silver against the rose gold chain, and the way she’s strung the chain up above the diamond bar.
  • Developing a new music obsession with Fitz and the Tantrums – it began when I heard the band name, which is maybe the second-best band name of all time (a Tom Petty cover band called “Petty Theft” gets the #1 spot), but then I heard the album, and yeah. It’s pretty well impossible to be in a bad mood while this thing’s playing, which means it’s on a lot at my house.
  • Being slightly less annoyed by all things Miley Cyrus after seeing her cover of “Jolene”. (BTW, did you know Dolly Parton is her godmother? Just full of random trivia, I am.)
  • (Im)patiently waiting for my shipment from Abe’s Market to arrive – the girls at Of A Kind convinced me I had to try these cocoa-dusted almonds, and I’m on pins and needles.
  • Falling even more in hetero-girl-crush love with Kim France after reading her article about taking a bad experience and finding the nuggets of good in it. I too have had that awful fired-from-my-dream-job-in-dramatic-fashion moment, and I too thought my world would cave in. Perspective, it’s what’s for dinner.

And if that’s not enough, I’m scouting V-Day gift ideas for next week’s gift guide – which will, as usual, be mostly about things you should buy yourself on Valentine’s Day.

What’s on tap for your weekend, friends?

Happy Friday, friends! I know, I’ve been a slowpoke around here this week. I was partially recovering from gift guides, and partially cooking up a storm for our Hanukkah feast. Now, my keyboard has stopped smoking, my tree is decorated, and my house smells like day-old latkes. It’s officially the holidays! Here’s what I have up my sleeve this weekend: Read on

I hate to say it, friends, but I have a busy weekend ahead. Why? Because SMC’s annual Gift Guide Extravaganza starts Monday! (I know, I know, it’s early – blame Hanukkah.) This year, we’re doing things a bit differently – I’ve asked some of the most stylish, creative, and clever people I know to share their holiday wishlists! So in addition to my picks, you’ll get the picks of the people whose flawless taste and inimitable style I’m always coveting. You’re going to love it!

What else is going on this weekend? I’m so glad you asked. Read on

Where on earth did this week go, friends? Is November scaring the pants off you with its apparent insistence on hurtling toward December at a breakneck pace? Or is that just me? Mental note: must find a way to take a deep breath and have a cocktail before my brain scrambles entirely. Besides drinking myself into a semi-relaxed state, here’s what I’ll be up to this weekend: Read on

Casa SMC has been Casa Crazy this week, my friends. Work is piling up (but that’s a good thing, right?), and I’m already swimming in holiday ideas for our gift guides. Lucky thing, since Hanukkah starts in…four weeks?! No pressure. Just wait until you see what I have up my sleeve – this year’s going to be the best yet!

Besides working my un-manicured little fingers to the bone, here’s what I’ll be up to this weekend: Read on

Happy Friday, friends! This weekend, I’m helping my future sis-in-law shop for a wedding dress. Ah, memories! But the real killer is how to dress myself…honestly, I’m so sick of this Indian summer, I can hardly stand it. I miss my sweaters!

Since it’s fall, and we can all use a little shake-up now and then, I thought I’d experiment with a little change to our usual Friday Finds routine…are you up for it? I always have the grandest plans for what I want to do every weekend. Then I end up running errands, cleaning the house and watching bad television. Ah, married life. But the point is that I start with big plans.

Here’s what my fictional weekend looks like so far: Read on
