TGIF! This week FLEW by.... must have been the 4 day work week ;) This weekend I'm hosting a baby shower and I'm really nervous. I thought to myself how hard could planning a shower be? It's just an afternoon of drinking champagne and hanging with friends, right? NO. So much NO. That's called SUNDAY, Nicole. A baby shower is so much more than that and as Aaron reminded me something the mom-to-be will remember forever.  Awesome. I'm channeling my inner sorority girl and have been getting my craft on this week (which is something I wasn't great at the first time around). Wish me luck. Actually on second thought, maybe we should all be wishing the mom-to-be luck.

SHAKE IT: I can't help but dance around in my work chair when this song comes on Spotify. 

IMPULSE PURCHASE PAYS OFF: I picked up this mug last week for superficial reasons (It matches my tumbler) but I was pleasantly surprised by its functionality. It keeps my coffee hot hot hot and is really lightweight. What a win.

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE?: I really need a solid pair of black pants. I don't want leggings and would be fine with thick ponte but I can't find anything. I tried the gigi pants from J.Crew Factory and was hugely underwhelmed with their quality. I really like these from Uniqlo but they're not work appropriate. Has anyone tried the long pixie pants from Old Navy? Or these from Gap? The Gap ones seem to get mixed reviews.

BECAUSE WE ALL NEED ANOTHER CROSSBODY: Speaking of Gap.... how gorg is this crossbody?

CALLING ALL YOGIS: If you're local, check out the Grip the Mat event calendar. They host mixed-level yoga classes followed by brunch or happy hour. Genius, right? I'm working with the founders on a project for work but there are still tickets left for their event on Sunday with Top Chef Spike Mendelsohn. Check it out!

SHOP FOR A CAUSE: Check out Love your Melon. For every hat sold, an identical hat is given to a child battling cancer. 

SALE ALERT: 30% off  shoes, handbags and accessories at Piperlime with the code HITREFRESH; 35% off at Gap with the code BEST; 40% off at Ann Taylor with code SHOP40

Have a great weekend, friends!
