This weekend I’m super excited to be taking a trip upstate! The leaves don’t really change in NYC until late October, but upstate New York is a totally different story (I hope, anyway) so I’m really looking forward to seeing some beautiful foliage and getting to take lots of autumnal pictures. We might also drive to the Hudson Valley to check out some antique shops, so if you know of any must-see spots please let me know. I can’t wait to just relax and be somewhere peaceful…even though I love the city this time of year, it’s always nice to get out into the fresh, crisp air of the country. I hope you guys all have a great weekend, and here are some links for ya!

Last but not least, I wanted to share with you a cool new company that my friend Julie has started called Small Packages. The concept is pretty brilliant – they create lovely gift packages you can give to the women in your life when a big life event happens and you just don’t have time to come up with a thoughtful, creative gift. Whether it’s a friend that got engaged, a friend going through a bad breakup, another friend who bought a new house…(or all three at the same time among your friend group) they’ve got you covered.
