I hope everyone’s gearing up for a fun holiday weekend! Tomorrow afternoon, I’m getting on a plane to Arizona to celebrate one of my bestie’s bachelorette parties. I’ve never been to AZ, and while I’m definitely bracing myself for the heat, I’m super excited to get out of the city for a few days and to spend QT with some of my favorite people. Plus… no humidity, right? That will be a welcome change from New York!

I take the red eye back on Sunday night so that Matt and I can buckle down with packing for the last part of the long weekend. We’re almost in the home stretch of this move, people!

As usual, though, I’m getting ahead of myself. There are more urgent matters to get to, like announcing the August giveaway winner!

Based on a random drawing, the winner of this month’s giveaway prize — a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble — is…


Congratulations! I’ll reach out today to make arrangements to send you your prize!


As always, thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway this month : )

I’ll see you all early next week to chat August and September goals! Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!
