A weekend in the country

 The best.

The best.

How has this week been for you? It has started cooling down a little in Auckland, and while not having to deal with the super-gross humidity is lovely (more than lovely – absolutely incredible actually), the air also has that autumn feel around the edges. And it makes me feel slightly blue! The end of summer always comes as a small sad surprise to me – I'm definitely a summer person, through and through. Happily, we're heading up to the country house this weekend and fingers crossed the weather is fine – summer's not out yet, and I intend to make the most of it.

Here are a few handy Friday distractions if you're ready for the weekend to just start already!

Have you seen I, Tonya yet? So good! 

I, too, tend to find street style quite uninspiring these days. How about you?

Death sells? Not a pretty picture.

Are you an old fixer-upper sort of person when it comes to houses? (I like to think I am, but I'm not at all practical or handy – so maybe not).
