A Look Back at August

September is here and while I can’t wait to bundle up in boots, leggings, leather jackets and beanies, I’m secretly hoping for an Indian Summer to prolong the warm weather for as long as possible.

In August I celebrated my nephew‘s first birthday (in a maxi dress I made last summer), shared my recipe for Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and filmed a quick and easy hair tutorial on my go-to bun.  I bought a cool earring cuff (from H&M), went to a cottage with 15 friends for a weekend (see the three-minute video recap here) and participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge (and yes, I donated too).

I showed you my secret to making dresses appear longer, tried ramen for the first time (meh), and shared my looks for Back-to-School in a video.  I celebrated my bestie’s birthday, bought a couple pairs of heels and shared an outfit with a top that’s been on repeat all summer.

Marco bought me a hat, I took full advantage of the rooftop garden we have here (hello basil!) and we hosted am all-night party at our place to round out the Labour Day weekend.

Happy September!
