it’s friday, ladies! can you believe it’s the official start of fall?! oscar and i are celebrating today with a toast to the new season. i’ll even share this yummy cosmo recipe i resurrected when i coined the ‘cosmo and question series’ hosted on instagram and facebook respectively.
as you can see the backyard is slowly taking shape. last week, the sod was finally laid. cheers for walking barefoot through the grass! slowly, but surely we’re selecting plants that are a good fit in the herb garden and the bed directly next to the house. in previous homes, we’ve had the privilege to work with landscape architects who drew up intricate plans. but we’ve faced several challenges here in georgia in that regards so we’re winging it on our own. yikes!

for those of you following along on instagram be certain to tune in on my instastories on sunday as i head to boston with mr. style. Boston University invited me as a guest lecturer for their MOOC (massively online open course) on the EdX platform—here’s a link to the course: https://www.edx.org/course/
over on YouTube, i’m sharing my packing tips and travel outfits. take a look here and subscribe to my channel so you’ll never miss an episode.
at the very least oscar seems to be quite at home in his new digs. there’s grass to run on, a new garden to traipse through, and new snacks – like bird food. who knew?
oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!

So, I just watched your packing video! Thanks for the 1-6 rule! We are traveling to London In October and, of course, I was interested in what you had to say. I was wondering if you had any additional tips for international travel or tips for London in October. I have researched the weather and know the temps are going to be quite cool. Some bloggers have suggested a heavy coat and others say a jacket. Have you been to Europe in the fall? I have been planning for my color palette-olive and black with burgundy accents. Thanks for any feedback and suggestions.
My kids live in Athens and I will me there this weekend to cheer on the Dawgs!
Love the blue and yellow flowerpot. Oscar looks like the king of the yard!. Good luck on your upcoming trip to Boston. I will follow along on IG.
Just watched your video! Great ideas. What brand is your suitcase?
I found if I have a piece of cardboard or foamcore cut the size of the interior (minus an inch or two each side) and then close the compression straps, the top items stay less wrinkled. The cardboard distributes the force of the strap so there are no wrinkles. The cardboard or foamcore is very lightweight and doesn’t add to the overall suitcase weight but really saves wrinkling on the top item.
Good travel tips. As someone who’s always on the road, I can relate, and incorporate a lot of these tips myself. My favorite is the wrinkle release spray–great idea! Have a wonderful trip to Boston! I love Boston.
