How was your week, friends?
My girl Meredith
joined me in Charleston for the rest of my road trip and we’ve been beaching, mint julep-ing, ghost-touring, ping-pong-ing, and Dollywood-ing with the best of ’em. (Also: yesterday we tried to visit The World’s Biggest Treehouse
but it’s been shut down for safety reasons. Obviously we felt we needed to climb over the fence so we could get a better look at it. And obviously I ripped my jeans doing so. You can’t win ’em all.)Anyway! Links!
Jonathan Adler’s manifesto (above) is awesome. (His ceramics are pretty great, too.)
Oh, but NPH and his hubby are adorable.
By now you probably know the few products that I’m practically a missionary for (this lipstick, these flip
flops, these life-changing travel amenities). I would like to add these jeans to that list.
* they go high enough in back that your underwear doesn’t hang out the top when you bend over
* they go high enough on the sides that your muffin top doesn’t hang out
* they’re low enough in the front that they’re still sexy(ish)
* they’ve got enough stretch that they fit most body types
* they come in a million colors and THEY COST $34
I have five pairs of jeans and four of those are rock star jeans. Get. them. now.
My obsession with Russia continues: photos of an elite Russian military school for girls.
I’ve never read an obituary that’s so sweet and uplifting. I hope mine is as full of life and written with as much love.
He excelled at growing camellias, rebuilding houses after hurricanes, rocking, eradicating mole crickets from his front yard, composting pine needles, living within his means, outsmarting squirrels, never losing a game of competitive sickness, and reading any history book he could get his hands on. He loved to use his oversized “old man” remote control, which thankfully survived Hurricane Katrina, to flip between watching The Barefoot Contessa and anything on The History Channel. He took extreme pride in his two grandchildren Harper Lewis (8) and William Stamps Lewis (6) of Dallas for whom he would crow like a rooster on their phone calls.

I love this house tour! Of course, it’s from Sweden.
Hilarious! The 23 best ways to handle a text from a wrong number.
Hippie recipes I’m going to try: sour kiwi chia jelly and quinoa pizza bites.
A super useful app if you (like me) track business expenses for tax deductions.
A great reminder of what non-model women look like nude.
