Read & Friday links.

Found this article by Amanda Peet regarding Botox/aging interesting.

Orange Is the New Black comes back June 17!

Anyone have the Tory travel flats? Curious how they are compared to the regular flats.

My boss made me aware of this hilarious "Bridesmaids" deleted scene. Love Kristin Wiig.

Love that you can monogram this cute bag.

Date night tonight! We're still unsure of where we'll go though... Bar Marta, Duck Duck Goat and High Five Ramen are on my list...

Chicago Children's Charities Derby Party is tomorrow! Seriously one of the most fun days of the year!

Read & Friday links.

Collis sent me this article after a conversation we had about how often people clean bedding (it got weird). Martha's weekly checklist is a little cray. Who vaccuums their upholstery on a weekly basis?? Please, leave me your phone number in the comments. Would love to get to know you. ;) 

This woman dressed like Gigi and Kendall to prove a point - I thought it was interesting.

Chicago Children's Charities Derby Party is so soon!

This Milly skirt is so cool.

Lots of updates in the shop! It's been so fun telling my friends about studio11byRPL - I've loved all the support!  Need some notecards but not as into the personalization? The most popular XO Lilah stationery is now available in XOXO! Follow along on Instagram, too.

Pete and I are headed to Roister tonight and could not be more excited!

Happy Fri.

Read & a recipe.

Loved this easy Mexican salad with green goddess dressing from It's All Good. All you have to do is throw all the salad ingredients into a bowl, and the dressing ingredients into a blender, and toss together. I added a few pieces of grilled chicken on top for a bit of protein and done!



For the dressing (this dressed 3-4 salad servings): 1/4 cup of JustMayo (or Vegannaise or plain yogurt), 1/4 cup of cilantro, 1/2 tablespoon of honey, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/2 of a jalepeno (or more!), juice from 1/2 of a lime and a pinch of sea salt. Blend until smooth. Add more olive oil for desired consistency.




For the salad: chopped romaine lettuce, one chopped tomato, 1/2 can of washed black beans, 2 cups of cooked corn, one avocado, a handful of cilantro, salt and pepper.




Dinner while watching "Olive Kitteridge" - has anyone seen it? I thought it was SO good, but so sad!

I actually just finished My Name Is Lucy Barton, which is by the same author of Olive Kitteridge. It was a bit odd, but I recommend!

Love this off the shoulder dress.

Interpretation of Emojis. Also related.

I like the idea of homemade sachets in closets.

Really into this jumpsuit.

We're having some friends over tonight before heading to Tarantino's (our favorite neighborhood spot)! Then it's off to check out the LEGO exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry tomorrow. Can't wait!

Happy weekend!

Read & studio11byRPL.

As I've mentioned (announcement here!), I have launched a little side project for my love of stationery: studio11byRPL.



Right now I'm focused on notecards and notepads, and in the coming months I am hoping to add a few wedding-related items to the shop (think menus, programs, etc.)!

My favorite item right now is the "Clare" notecard. I recently gave Pete's cousin's new baby his own set!


{Because what baby doesn't need personalized stationery?}



{Checking off a few things on the to-do list in the studio.}



{Mailing out bachelorette party itineraries!}


Feel free to check out the shop and let me know what you think!
