October 3, 2014


Happy Friday, friends! It’s been fun being more present in this space this week, and I’m looking forward to keeping the momentum going next week.

In the meantime, can you believe it’s October already? I cannot, although I’m happy it is: This is one of my favorite months of the year. We’ve got Halloween on the horizon, the weather finally starts to turn (it’s supposed to be 75 degrees here on Sunday!) and I can indulge my crazy hankerings for all things pumpkin. Also: Candy corn.

Oh, and if you’re in the mood for some reading this weekend, here are a few things I’ve been enjoying around the web these days:

A day in the life of a New York City Ballet soloist.

Love Joanna’s interview with Lena Dunham (whose book is on my nightstand right now, waiting to be cracked open).

Caroline’s post on French style is delightful. 

The awesome Julie, of Bound, recently launched her new personal training biz, fitBallet, and I can’t wait to try some of the sample workouts.

Speaking of health, I’m enjoying this fun and fizzy blog, written by the owner of Pure Barre New Orleans.

And on the opposite end of the spectrum, my summer intern and I wrote about Sarasota’s best doughnuts for our October issue. (Man, I love a doughnut.)

A great interview with Kate Arends of Wit & Delight, one of my favorite bloggers.

This (one-pan!) goulash recipe so looks so comforting and perfect for fall. (I’m in total fall mode even though it’s still basically 85-plus degrees here every day.)

My friend and coworker Hannah pointed out that sometimes really great writers are called upon to cover the Paul Deen saga, and I am inclined to agree. Case in point: This piece. (Please enjoy the stick-of-butter initial caps.)

I want to curl up in this cozy sweater. (I’ll take the mango color, thanks.)

And this coat is wintry, but looks light enough for Florida’s mild temps, too.

Have a wonderful weekend!
