Well, I can already tell you what made my daughter’s happy list this week. It was PICTURE DAY at school which is THE BEST DAY EVER because you get to dress fancy. It is that the one day out of our school year that we don’t have to wear uniforms which is an incredible day for a budding fashionista.
I slipped out while she was dolling up to grab my camera and snap her at our little vanity. I told my husband that I would love to do this every picture day as she grows up over the years.
He told me to shut my face because she can’t grow up.
Watching these kids grow up is so bittersweet.
We have been eating our way through my food preparations this week and it has been another delicious week of eating.
I happened to take every new documentary they had on their library shelf and am looking forward, in particular, to watching this one! Have you seen it? I am captivated by fashion as we age. I really need to sit down and write about our favorite documentaries for you all!
In the meantime, here are 3 other things that are making me happy this week:
Mighty Bright Book Light
I have become a bit of an ebook addict, but I have found that it is harder to share ebook joy and make that pretty on my IG feed so I have went back to stacks of books, mostly to impress you. Don’t you love the mind of a blogger? Of course, the appeal to the ebook for me has been portability and I love night reading on my iPad because of the bright screen.
I had to bust out my trusty book light again and I’m falling back in love with reading on paper. My brother got me this Mighty Bright a few years ago for the holidays and it is the perfect reading light. If you don’t have one, I can’t recommend this one enough. Not only is it great to read with, but it has saved us in a few power outages when we couldn’t find our flashlights.
Do you see the book pictured? Hiccuping sobs may have occurred that night. As if the book light wasn’t annoying enough in bed, I am sure seeing your wife curled in the fetal position crying is another soothing way to drift off to sleep.
This perfectly illustrates the joy that my husband experiences now that I am back to my book light reading. Why this is so bothersome? I don’t really care because reading is more important than his sleep! Ha! Is anyone else’s husband like this?
An IG Feed for Book-Lovers
This week, through Delicious Reads, I discovered the Folded Pages Distillery IG feed and I am telling you that you will want to just spend days looking at these beautiful book vignettes they put together around the books they are reading. It is such a treat for the eyes. Be sure to give them a follow and check out their blog for some incredible book reviews.
I am already dreaming of my next stack of library books thanks to these gorgeous images!
Fall Capsule Planning is Underway
Now that Fall is finally in full swing, I have been working hard this week on putting together my next capsule (here is last year’s for inspiration). I really need to sit down and write about my reflections now that I have been doing this for a year. Out of the 33 items, I have only purchased 6 new and the rest of my wardrobe is secondhand thanks to the affordable offerings on thredUP.
This documentary really inspired my shift to strive to purchase second hand (and investing wisely) and I cannot recommend it enough. You can watch it through your Netflix membership. It has forever changed my thoughts on purchasing and on donating. I am still thinking about it weeks after watching it.
I did treat myself to one item from eShakti. As a petite girl, it is impossible to find a midi skirt that hits at the right length. The company was offering free customization so I got to plug in all my dimensions and the skirt will be made to fit me perfectly. Here is $40 off a $70 order coupon if you are a petite girl who has midi skirt woes. I ordered this denim skirt and I can’t wait to add it to my wardrobe year-round.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that you found something on here that might bring you happiness too! xoxo
