Happy Friday! By the time you’re reading this I’m likely back in Houston after spending the majority of the week in DC – my home away from home. I hosted a Contracts 101 workshop for my Contracts for Creatives business at The Wing in Georgetown last night (Thursday night) so I made a week of it. I had the best time being back in the city for a few days. I had a mix of meetings for the blog and for my contracts business. I caught up with friends over coffee, lunch, and dinner, and even squeezed in two SoulCycle rides with one of my favorite instructors!

Things to Note
Beautycounter 15% Off Sale: I know I noted this above, but I just want to reiterate that Beautycounter likely won’t have another sale until Black Friday so stock up while you can get everything on sale!
Another full weekend in Houston! With being out of town for the majority of the week this week, I haven’t made one single plan for the weekend! I’m getting my haircut on Saturday, but that’s about it. Restaurant Week is happening in Houston so Michael and I may try out a new-to-us restaurant or check out another new-to-us brewery. Who knows! We’ll see where the weekend takes us!
FAVORITE THINGS THIS WEEK
Abercrombie Ripped High Rise Mom Jeans // No, this is not a joke. I purchased these on a whim after seeing another blogger post about them and they were on sale. I LOVE them! They’re actually super soft, the rise is perfect, and the fit is just overall great. I have the medium ripped wash in a size 26 (I’m usually either a 26 or 27 so I’d say they fit TTS). On sale for $44!
Madewell Basket Weave Heeled Sandals // I ordered these during the Madewell sale a few weeks ago. They’re the perfect transitional heel to wear now and through the fall! They’re also really comfortable AND they’re still on sale!
Have a great weekend!
