Links I Love Week 29

I don’t think I have loved Summer this much as when I was a kid going to Summer camp. Besides the one rained out Art Fair, I have taken the Summer off from shows which has meant I actually have weekends free. The last couple weekends have been rainy which made me even happier I wasn’t outside in a rain soaked tent. This weekend, I visited the Randolph Antique Market which is a monthly event in Chicago the last weekend of the year. I have found a few of the pieces in my apartment from there one at a time. I made a list of what I needed and brought a measuring tape. I only crossed one thing off my list but I am happy with my purchase. I purchased a matching set of end tables for the bed which are a pretty blue. In case you missed the post about a look inside my Chicago Apartment you can read it here.

I have to agree with this article especially on finding places that have Aesop in the bathroom. I feel like it is a running joke with my friends in Paris. I recently purchased this soap from The Nordstrom Sale and it was a bit of a splurge but I love the smell!
