A Day in the City






A day in the city filled with work, coffee, shopping, and fun.

I'm really looking forward to all that today holds! Beginning with a meeting over coffee with a client, and then onto some pure fun with my Mom. I cannot wait to stop into one of my favorite shops, Oliver & Lilly's, (I wish I could stop in weekly) followed by L'Occitane, La Baguette, maybe the bookstore, a few others, and then ending with Chanel. Sometimes, a mid–week break is much–needed to inspire and rejuvenate, don't you think? Do you have a favorite place to visit when you need a break?

Of note: Don't forget to enter this new giveaway—which is open internationally... the last giveaway was, in fact, shipped off to Africa. Good day and good luck, friends!

  1. Hi Sarah! I have Wednesdays off work every week and when my children are at school, it is the best mid-week break. I get to gather my thoughts abit and go into town or sort some stuff out at home. I would be utterly lost without my mid-week fix! Louise x
