Sunday Seven Volume 3

Hey All! Another week has come and gone, and it’s my turn to share a few of my favorite things from the last seven days (for all those expecting raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens, you will be disappointed. I prefer sunflowers and puppies):

And now, so do you.
  1. One thing I haven’t talked a lot about here is that my background is actually in Musical Theater.  I usually find myself with one Broadway soundtrack on repeat, and right now that soundtrack is…HAMILTON. If you’re not already aware, it is a new musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda (recent winner of a MacArthur Grant) and it is the story of Alexander Hamilton  and the creation of the US told through hip-hop music (duh, obviously, what else?). Y’all, if you like history, rap/hip-hop, music in general, air, water…you will love this soundtrack.  Take a listen here, thank me later.
  2. There are a lot of places that I get my fashion inspiration from.  One of my absolute go-tos for creative outfit ideas from a fellow fashion blogger is Mara of M Loves M. She does such a great job of styling things that every girl has a version of in their closet and making them feel new and fresh. For example, I already own versions of pretty much everything she is wearing here, but I never would have thought to put them together like that before.  Plus, Mara does a great job of taking super trendy items and making them work for everyday.  She’s neat, I like her, strong endorsement from yours truly.
  3. Now that it is officially October, it is time to start planning that perfect Halloween costume. Perhaps these adorable pooches can offer you a bit of inspiration!
  4.  I don’t know what the weather is like where you are (Apparently the East Coast is suffering through a hurricane? Named Joaquin? Literally not sure which part is worse.), but here in the Midwest, Fall is officially starting to rear its gorgeous head. I personally cannot stop planning silly Fall-related weekend activities. For example, pretty much 305 days of the year, the idea of going apple-picking would make me feel like this:

But come October or November, someone suggests apple-picking and I am all:

Go figure.

5. I am not sure if you guys are familiar with Brooke Barker’s comics “Sad Animal Facts”; if you are not, please go remedy that, I’ll wait…

Awesome, right? Anyways, last week she did a great comic about the depressing lack of viable women even suggested to be put on the U.S. $10 bill that made me learn (which usually I hate) and laugh (which made up for the whole “learning” thing), check it out here.

6. I am on a serious hunt for a great blanket scarf.  I know, I know, they’re everywhere, but as a petite, proper lady (ok..maybe just petite), finding a good one that doesn’t overwhelm me can be a bit of a challenge.  I think my next contenders are the two below, what do you think?

7. It’s the last dwindling hours of the weekend y’all, go do something awesome and get yourself a good story! Then come back and tell me about it, cuz I’ll be sleeping in.

Boom. Jeanne out. .
