Labor Day Weekend Links + Likes

Happy Friday and happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Go ahead and count me among those in shock it's already September. This summer flew by! Now if only the winter months would be so least we get all the holidays between now and then.

We went to Harlow's school orientation yesterday and she was uncharacteristically shy and uncooperative. Don't you just love when your kid goes rogue on you in public?? She eventually loosened up a bit and we went back to see her teachers again and she did better the second go-round. Praying for a smooth transition when she starts school next week.

We're sticking around Asheville this weekend, hosting Harlow's Yammy, watching football, and fitting in a few of the fun things on my wish list. I'm always a tad ambitious trying to do it all on long weekends, especially at the end of summer! But I mean, is it really? We're still going to have nice weather for awhile and it only gets better as it cools off a little.

Anyhoo, here are a few things to get you in a weekend state of mind and the scoop on some of the best Labor Day sales happening now on the interwebs.


Goop just named Asheville one of its four most underrated food cities in the US. They name their favorite local eateries plus recommendations on hotels and sightseeing.

Speaking of local love, go ahead and plan your September using this handy list of upcoming events over the next month here in AVL.

Sephora's Beauty Insider Event is on right now with 10% off your purchase. If you're thinking of trying some new makeup or skin care products now's a GREAT time to go for it! I want to try these toner pads, this micellar cleansing water, and this neutral eyeshadow palette.

Did somebody say Hallmark Christmas movie?? Some new flicks starring our fave holiday Hallmark stars on the docket for this season and I'M READY!

Skin discoloration AKA dark spots suck but this product and skin care regimen are supposed to make it all better!

Everything is 40% off at J. Crew which seems like the perfect time to pick up this sweater blazer and these velvet strappy sandals as we head into fall.

Another great sale: 40% off at LOFT. I love this pullover hoodie sweater to wear with jeans and leggings on chilly fall mornings. These metallic sandals are also super classic.

Hosting a game watch for a football game? These mini chicken and waffle sliders are super simple to make and something both kids and adults can enjoy.

Roasted chickpeas are incredibly delicious and addicting! They're a great protein option to pack in your kid's lunch box.

My fave accessories line, Twine and Twig, is 25% off this weekend and you get a free bracelet with your order. Their new Woods Collection is so, so beautiful.

These distressed skinny jeans are super cute and on sale for under $40.

We all need a plaid shirt for fall, it's just a rule. This plaid blouse by Madewell has beautiful colors and it's on sale for under $50.
