On My Radar for October


Hello Friends,

There are so many good things going on right now!

Luke’s Diner [Gilmore Girls Revival]

Town Updates

I cannot wait for the release of the new Gilmore Girls episodes. It’s on my rainy day to-do list to rewatch the last season (or many three…) to prepare for the release after Thanksgiving. To hype the upcoming even, many coffeshops were transformed into mini Luke’s diners, and guys, IT HAPPENED ON MY BIRTHDAY. It’s like they knew my extreme love for this show. It was kinda a crazy day for me, so I didn’t get to make it over to one of the coffee shops (there were only 2 decorated here in the Bay) but a girl can dream! There’s also a web-page (linked from photo above) that is all about the fictional town of Stars Hollow that is also pretty darn cute.

Jackie- Natalie Portman [Movie Trailer]

I’m hoping I can convince my mom to come see this movie with me. The acting looks amazing, I’m sure the style and clothes on point, and just the history behind it is so important. Let’s make it a dinner & a movie plan, okay Mom?

Calvin Klein Trenchcoat

Every winter I get look at coats and try to pick up a new one. Usually I wear them into the ground. My mom does a great job on cleaning up whatever art messes I get on it (#teacherlife) but usually it looks like it’s been through a rough messy life by the end of one California winter in an art classroom. I’ve been looking online and I kinda love the Aubergine color, what do you think?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s NY Apartment for Sale

So I first heard about this article on Young House Love’s Podcast. They play this fun game where the husband describes multiple things in a category (some true, some false) and the wife has to guess what’s a lie. It’s great and funny and this time it was about the sentences used to describe rooms in Gwyneth Paltrow’s apartment, which is now up for sale. I love the photos, the styling of the apartment, and the excessive use of carrera marble in her kitchen. Check it out and let me know what you think of her design style in the comments below!

Pixar Short: Borrowed Time

I adore Pixar. Their ability to tell a story (for example Ellie’s life story in Up) is absolutely incredible and I saw this short recently. It is much darker than their normal shorts, but still captivating. I might have shed a tear over one particular moment. Have you seen any of their other shorts?

I still need to decorate my little apartment for fall. It was a busy first few weeks with my birthday, the freshman sleepover, Open House, grades being due etc!

How’s your October going?
