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.

The cutest back to school inspired cookies.

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

Beautiful Prague.
