Despite this being a four day work week, it sure felt like a long one. Some co-workers and I decided the week after a holiday weekend is always spent catching up on work you missed. That was evident for me this week. Lot’s of running around without feeling like you’re accomplishing much.
I’m excited to get dressed up tonight (although I have no clue what I’m wearing yet) for the Cincy Chic’s Stiletto’s & Startups event downtown. You can still get tickets for tonight’s event, which is being held at the PNC on 5th starting at 6:00. Myself and some other bloggers will be there judging the best shoes of the night! There was some stiff competition last year, so I’m excited to see what everyone wears tonight.
My mom grows her own basil, and her plant is currently growing like crazy. I’ve never seen so much basil before, and am shocked no animals have gotten ahold of it like previous years. I’ve been researching different cocktail recipes that call for basil, and think I found the perfect one. This Fresh Ginger Moscow Mule from Pickled Plum sounds incredibly refreshing! I think it’s a good drink for one last summer hurrah.
If you follow me on social media, you’ll know I started a new feature called “Bauble of the Week”. I’m still going to do my monthly wish lists of jewelry, but thought this would be a more personal way of sharing the jewelry I already own and love. I have so much of it, so I’m excited to share things that are new and pieces I’ve had for years! This week, I shared the Callan Ear Jackets from Kendra Scott. These are from her Mystic Bazaar collection, and I LOVE THEM! They’re easy to style, and are so different than anything I own.
