The brisk fall mornings I've been looking forward to eluded me all week, and we suffered a terrible and unseasonable heat wave here in SoCal. Still, there were big bins of pumpkins outside the grocery store and a few crunchy leaves to step on during our morning walk to my daughter's school, so I'm hopeful we'll see more signs of the season soon. And speaking of my daughter, this weekend I've got a date with her to see Queen of Katwe; we both love Lupita Nyong'o (my mini exclaims, "There's our girl!" whenever we see her on a magazine cover) so we're really excited. We'll also be having dinner with friends we haven't seen in about a year, and I can't wait to catch up over good food and good wine. Have yourself a fantastic weekend, and God bless!

I feel like she's been a favorite before, but that fur, the head wrap and those sunnies are just SO good, had to do a repeat!

And this equally fabulous Sikh-American woman in a turban and specs. Also, this whole series was so beautifully shot.

A sweet photo backdrop.

Grilled cheese soup dippers that I know my girls will love. 

This awesome T-shirt that will certainly spark some interesting conversation.

I'm super excited that fall has arrived, probably more so this year than ever before. I've got a birthday party for my little girl coming up (it's a Barbie glam theme and I'm having so much fun planning it), a new home to decorate with fall goodies, and the holidays are coming up. It's such a fun time of year; I can't wait to see what this fall has in store. Enjoy the first weekend of fall, and God bless!

Lupita Nyong'o in Elie Saab at the L.A. premiere of Queen of Katwe. And by the way, I can't wait to see this film; I've got a date planned with my big girl--just a mommy and daughter day.


This incredible view from this Manhattan bathroom


The cutest back to school inspired cookies.


Another pink fur for me to obsess over until the next one comes along. 


Beautiful Prague.
