Happy Friday!! Any fun weekend plans? We’re planning to head down to Frankford Hall this weekend. Frankford Hall is one of our favorite beer gardens (with heat lamps – critical!!) to see Santa. Isn’t that a genius idea? Santa will be there for free pics from 12 – 3PM each day this weekend and next. Oh, and kids eat free. #nobrainer
But the exciting news is that on SUNDAY, I’m hosting a Champagne party at the Bradamant Pop-Up Shop downtown Philly. Mike is coming too, and we’d both love if you’d drop by. I’m a huge fan of the brand (and the designer Tamar is not only insanely talented, but just a fantastic person all-around) and I think it’ll be tons of fun. I just tried on this crazy, new print and the pictures do NOT do it justice. Seriously. (Also, this taupe(?) gray(?) turtleneck is so lux and gorgeous.) Come see for yourself!! And have a drink, obvi. Bubbles, people. BUBBLES.
We’ve been doing our best to try and keep The Mom Edit’s Holiday Central up-to-date with the latest sale information and gift picks as we find them (as well as our Holiday Style articles). Has it been helpful? I’d love your feedback. Trying to see if we should make it a regular holiday thing. (Although, I want more thumbnail pics and less text links – we’re working on that part.) Let me know.
Haley W. from Oklahoma, you are the winner of our huge Sephora giveaway. Enjoy, Chick!! You are in for some fun. (I just sent you an email…..)
The Modern Mrs. Darcy reviewed a ground-breaking book on conquering clutter. It’s not for the faint of heart, but may be just the thing to take on in the New Year. (SOMETHING must be done – it’s getting out of control round here.)
Loved Apartment Therapy’s list of winter books for kids.
My fav photographer, Ashley Ann, covered her favorite point-and-shoot cameras, as well as the best starter photography equipment for kids.
I heart breakfast toast and Buzzfeed’s list of 21 Ideas For Energy Boosting Breakfast Toasts is genius. (We’re mostly gluten-free, so I do mine over Van’s gluten free freezer waffles or Suzi’s Corn, Quinoa and Sesame Thin Cakes (like an updated rice cake).
I don’t normally love puffer vests, but just picked up this one at the Gap. It’s fab. Also picked up this fair isle sweater in white. It’s a mock turtleneck and shockingly cute. Which means…a mere DAYS after I swear (VOW!!) to never wear another mock turtleneck….I buy one. #karma
Speaking of, Meagan and I recorded another podcast at The Happiest Home, this time talking about holiday style. She provokes me and I end up swearing that I will never wear another mock turtleneck again.
LOFT is having a seriously huge sale – a whopping 60% off already reduced styles. It’s a final sale, but most things ring in under $20. Here’s what is currently in my cart – just click directly on the pic to be taken to the item.
Enjoy your weekend, and I hope to see you locals on Sunday!!
