Hello from Miami Beach! I’m here with Mitch and Lucy for a project with Lauren by Ralph Lauren, and we’re so enjoying the beautiful weather.
In case you didn’t catch this post, Lucy is currently wearing a cranial helmet to correct Plagiocephaly. (Click here to learn more about Plagiocephaly, and to read about our decision to get Lucy a band.) She’s been wearing it for a little over two weeks, and things are going well!
Unbeknownst to me, Mitch signed me up for the “iPhone Upgrade Program,” which gets you a new phone every year. (Very good for people who put their phones on top of their cars and then drive away. 😳📱😂) But seriously: How cool is the ultra wide-angle capability on iPhone 11 Pro’s camera system?!
The Serena & Lily Friends & Family Event ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on 10/14/19, so now is a great time to invest in those “forever pieces” you’ve had your eye on. Use code “GUESTPREP” to take 20 percent off everything!
Okay! You may have seen this recent blog post on how the kitchen renovation is going, but here are a few new updates:
A few big sales I’m shopping today:
The last few days of the Serena & Lily Friends & Family Event–it ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on 10/14/19–so today I’m highlighting some gorgeous pillows that the brand sent to me to style around our home! (Note: Use code “GUESTPREP” to take 20 percent off everything.)
Navy Bean Boots (Favorite pair, though, is the shearling-lined boots. In my experience, they’re the warmest! The plaid flannel-lined boots are a close second; I’d recommend these for fall and the shearling-lined ones for winter! /Barbour Beadnell Jacket (LOVE the quilted one, though. SO WARM!) / Fisherman Tunic (Also consider the original.) / Camp Socks (Love L.L.Bean’s version, too.) / Hudson Jeans (They’re on Amazon as well.)
Today’s been a DAY. First, it’s Mitch’s birthday. (Happy birthday, Mitch! Your girls love you so much.) But we also had the usual school drop-off routine, a bunch of deadlines (that we actually met!) and a doctor’s appointment for Lucy and her helmet (went so well!)… and then Home Depot sent their plumbing crew to the house to hook everything up. (I’m actually typing this as they’re working. I put on some music but it’s definitely a little awkward. 😂 Here’s the progress on the kitchen, btw!) In an hour, we’re also having a make-your-own pizza night with friends and their kids. Really fun!
Wanted to pop on this afternoon, though, to let you know that:
- I’m running a fun Bean Boot giveaway on Instagram! Head there to enter. :)
- Bean Boots are currently 20 percent off! Use code “BEAN20.” Ends 10/14. In case you’re wondering, my favorite pair is the shearling-lined boots. In my experience, they’re the warmest! The plaid flannel-lined boots are a close second; I’d recommend them for fall and the shearling-lined ones for winter. If you live in a warmer climate, the classic navy Bean Boots are a wonderful option. Remember: If you’re a half size, size down. If you’re a whole size, order your normal size.
We have so much going on over here, haha. But our kitchen countertops went in yesterday, and we’re in love! I can’t believe how much bigger and brighter the room looks.
A couple of weeks ago, I shared initial plans for our kitchen. And it’s so exciting to see it all happening. I’ll do a full (very honest) review about the experience once everything’s finished, but wanted to share a few more details today.
It’s J.Crew’s biggest sale of the season! Today, you can take 40 percent off full-priced styles and 50 percent off sale styles with code “GOBIG.” Here’s what I have my eye on:
On Saturday, we celebrated my grandmother’s 85th birthday in New York, and it was perfect. I think everyone’s still on a “party high.” ☺️
