Links I Love Week 3

This weekend is all about playing catchup. A long walk with Henri for coffee downtown, wrapping up wedding thank you notes, and cleaning and decluttering. I need to go room by room and really start decluttering and purging after the craziness of the holidays and the wedding. 

I was also to schedule and mani/pedicure which was way overdue. One of my goals for 2023 is to do better with taking time off and putting a focus on self-care.

Cuyana added this zippered pouch for the system tote which I want. The one hesitation I had about the System tote was not being able to secure valuables and this makes that possible. I love bringing this when traveling and it fits on top of my rolling suitcase. The ability to have a spot for everything makes me happy.

We spent all last weekend looking for a dining room table and landed on this one and these chairs which are out of our budget. (dreaming of finding a way to make it happen) We both fell in love with it! I also ended up crushing on this bookcase for our front room which would replace our larger bookcase and create more space.
