God I love autumn clothing. Lusting after everything right now.

Also, seeing these items in one place again reminds me how much I apparently love tartan/plaid.

What are you lusting after?

Hurry to get to work early today for a big meeting.
I didn’t wear a coat because it was clear outside and I was sweaty from rushing around.
Now on the bus; it’s pouring.
Awesome.

I will hold your hand and watch the world spin idly around this life we’re in

Oh yeah everything goes quiet when it’s you I’m with

I just love this. On repeat. 

Love this!

My List: Jenna Lyons
An interesting interview into a day in the life of J.Crew-famous Jenna Lyons. I am absolutely stunned that she a) always showers at night and b) takes 8 minutes to get dressed and do her makeup - WHAT?

Thanks to the boy for this URL gem. Most of these are spot on. And hilarious. Especially someone approaching from the side while you’re wearing headphones!

Random People Try Jewish Food For The First Time.

Love your gefilte fish, chopped liver and kugel? Me too. So very much.

You’ll probably also love the hilarious reactions of these people trying jewish food for the first time.

Best line? “This is the gateway drug to Jewish food.”

Best part of this is definitely the faces of everyone eating chopped liver!

Man’s best friend. This Instagram is awesome.

Weekend summary:

  • Jason Mraz concert at Royal Albert Hall - boy can that man sing! Lisa and I commented throughout that we felt the vibe was much more subdued than it would have been were the concert either at another venue or in the States. Nonetheless, love his new album (especially Quiet and Back to Earth!) and he was amazing live! What a feel good show.
  • The boy and I ventured out to Gloucestershire this weekend to say good bye to one his closest friends (for over 15 years!). One of his besties. He has decided to go traveling for three months and end his trip in New Zealand where he’ll be moving to live with his long term girlfriend. What can we say? We are sad and will miss him oodles, but how can you not be happy for someone who wants to go follow their love? :) A long night out bar hopping in Stroud was fun, but the best part of the night was the tapas dinner at No 23 Bar and Bistro. We were tempted to order “one of everything” on the menu because it was so hard to decide. The veggie paella was my favourite, and the wine was lovely. And of course, the conversation and laughs were ace! 
  • Sunday we took a morning countryside drive to Gloucester’s outlets so I could replace a damaged suitcase that I’ve thrown away after the move last autumn. Then, all of his immediate family met for a big family roast at The Bear of Rodoborough Hotel - a party of 7 dining on beef and yorkshire puddings, roast pork and apple sauce, roasted potatoes, smoked salmon, ham hock, red wine, cheesecake and lemon tarts. Everyone left Thanksgiving-full and happy, and it was lovely to spend more time with the boy’s brother & sister-in-law and parents, as always.

The weekend felt so long and full, can we do it again?
