Happy {Kick Your Heels Up} Weekend

Wowza. It’s the end of September. Can anyone explain how that happened?! I think it is high time we try to sloooowwww this puppy down.

As the temperatures continue to cool and the nights grow a little longer, it does feel good though doesn’t it? 

This weekend we’ll be exploring yet another new neighborhood, seeing some family and indulging in  much needed downtown. How about you luvies?

If you’re looking for something to keep you busy, here a few fun things from the week:

~ I’ve tumbled head over heels for this tumblr
~ I have totes on the brain
~ A new reason to join team Kelly
~ The new Matchbook Magazine debuts Monday but you can get a sneak peak now.
~ Martha Stewart Living picked some favorite finds, including one of mine {omgomgomg}
~ I shared my style essentials with the dazzling Camille
~ There have been a plethora of bloggers’ events this week & it’s all been captured on the Apartment 34 Facebook page

And before I go, here is your third installment of Noteworthy Newbies. I’m particularly smitten with this week’s picks:

Noteworthy Newbies 3.0
~ Hip Hip Gin Gin
~ Life’s Little Gem
~ In the City with Crystalin

Till Monday luvies,

Bag It Up

What puts a smile on your face more than a fabulous new bag, right? They can kinda make your day.

How about snagging a one-of-a-kind bag designed by fashion legends like Simon Doonan, Donna Karan or Diane Von Furstenberg? Now add in having all proceeds from your bag go to fighting a rare skin disorder that afflicts kids. You must be smiling now. You get this trifecta with Barney’s Hung On U – a line of customized bags currently on auction at Charity Buzz.com.

You can pick between an awesome array of takes on the one-shoulder canvas tote – 20 different celebrity designers created a bag. The only tough thing is picking which one to bid on. Don’t worry, you’ve got until October 12 to decide!

Check out this video and then head over to Charity Buzz to learn more!

Happy making a difference luvies!
