The kids are out of school for most of us, and for the rest of you, the end is in sight! And I think that’s cause for celebration, don’t you? Emily Ley sent me a handful of her new academic Simplified Planners and I’m giving two away to a couple lucky readers!

Up for grabs is one of the Happy Stripe Academic daily planners, maybe my all-time favorite version (I’ve used mine for the past 3 years). But! I’m also giving away one of the brand spanking new leatherbound weekly planners too! It’s in a gorgeous bright aqua and it’s absolutely beautiful. Small enough to fit into your purse and carry with you on-the-go.

Ok, on to this weekend’s five things to check out. Don’t miss ’em!


I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole of some pretty amazing estate sales online, and this Christies auction of Joan Rivers’ estate is absolutely fascinating. Click thru the PDF version of the auction book. The jewelry is incredible.


If you loved my post on the Hearst Castle and fantasized about swimming in that gorgeous blue pool, then you will be suitably impressed/awed by this crazy dude who actually DID jump into the pool. And then was arrested.


I’m officially ready to move into a trailer park. In Malibu. Which means this ain’t no regular trailer park. 😉


Hilarious. Dr. Google is scary.


Would you sleep in a capsule on the side of a mountain?

with love,
