Wearing: I have a full blog post on this sweater to come, but it might be the coziest thing I've ever owned. It comes in 3 colors, I got it in the heather root shade. It is under $100 (which is a good price for the knit composition because it has 10% alpaca!) and fits roomy, but I still got a small. I want to go back and get the other two colors, I love it that much.
Pittsburgh-ing: A few things about Pittsburgh around the internet this week:
1// Sophia Vergara Talks about Joe Manganiello's Steeler obsession. Pretty freaking cool-- also, he went to my high school!
2// The Telegraph published an article titled 'How Pittsburgh Became America's Most Unlikely Cultural Capital'.
3// I don't really watch TV, but NBC just aired a show called This Is Us which is set in Pittsburgh. So therefore, I had to watch it. The show literally opens up with Milo Ventimiglia (you know Jess, from Gilmore Girls?!) practically naked except for a Terrible Towel covering him. Awesome. The first episode was really good and I can't wait to watch the next!
Wanting: I came across wayyyyy too much this week. I really had to practice self-control!
Watching: Alanis Morrisette and James Corden rework 'Ironic' in terms of today's pop culture. It's hilarious.
Eating: I just got a crock pot...which is making me feel really 'adult', so if any of you have any really good recipes, send them my way!
Smelling: You guys. I got a sample of this in my Nordstrom order and it is the BEST SCENT EVER. Seriously. It's woody and warm but also light and fresh at the same time. Very hard to describe, but this is 100% my scent for 2017.
Drinking: I love trying out Nespresso pods. I just got the new limited edition tinto de Columbia pods and they're so good! They're a lighter roast so they're perfect for an afternoon cup!
Drinking II: These Barefoot Sprtizers have been a total crowd pleaser as of late. It's definitely something to keep on hand for guests and they're so perfect for tailgates!
Listening: I came across this cover of the Chainsmoker's Closer and I love it! This song never gets old and this cover by Walk Off the Earth just makes it all the better! If you didn't know, I am obsessed with the Chainsmokers-- I saw them in concert last year and am SO excited to see them again tomorrow! If you're not familiar with Walk Off the Earth, my favorite song by them is Red Hands. I also had no idea that they do a ton of covers on their YouTube channel and they're all amazing. I really like Let It Go, Teenage Dirtbag (this brings me back to middle school), and Hello.
Decorating: If you saw last week's post and wanted to place a frame order with Framebridge, you're in luck! They have graciously given me a code for Summer Wind readers to save 15% on your first Framebridge purchase. Use code SUMMERWIND15 at checkout!
