This + That: Cruising Into A Busy Week

We have a crazy week ahead of us at the flower shop, and I spent the weekend preparing for it by ordering all the takeout, watching lots of Ugly Betty — I’m so into this show, you guys! — and napping as much as possible. We’re a man down while our wedding coordinator treks off to design weddings out of the country (I’m so excited for this opportunity for her) with a 50+ table event on the books for Thursday. I’m dedicating today to cleaning up the shop, washing lots and lots of buckets for a big flower shipment, unpacking new retail for the boutique, and catching up on my favorite podcasts while I work.

So today’s post will be short and sweet, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite things from last week!

First up, speaking of podcasts…

I Can’t Wait For This Podcast Launch

Fellow Office stans: Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey are kicking off a fresh podcast, ‘The Office Girls’ on October 16th. The former co-stars and real-life BFFs will break down their favorite episodes and share behind-the-scenes insight about working on the series. I’m so excited for this one! (Sidebar: Jenna is one of my favorite celebrities on Instagram. And if you’re curious, Jennifer Garner is my #1.)

My Current Color Crush

We collaborated on the florals for styled shoot featuring a stained glass inspired wedding design, and now I’m on the hunt for bold velvet couches and mismatched rugs for our living room. This colorful setup makes me so happy! (My current color crush is making its way into my Instagram grid, too.)

I wouldn’t mind adding a few pops of neon to my fall wardrobe. I’m really into these super-bright sweaters under $50.

H&M, $30

This Is The Best Body Duo

Necessaire The Body Wash + The Body Lotion is my latest #cleanbeauty obsession. The body lotion feels like a luxurious face cream: I apply it from my neck to my toes after every shower, and it keeps my dry, sensitive skin balanced and hydrated all day.

Links I Loved

• I always want to jump right into every holly & flora blog post, and my FOMO was strong over this gorgeous outdoor ranch dinner; every last detail looked like perfection.

• I really appreciated Olivia’s piece on how quitting dieting helped her find her personal style.

• Anna’s guide to buying denim is full of great tips for finding the best jeans.
