It’s a fabulist: what I am crushing on this week

Today is Friday and the weekend is about to begin.  As a pallet cleanser from a long work week, here is a new fabulist: what I am crushing on this week.

The Organized Wife Fabulist 082616

Item one:

Today Florence and The Machine released ‘Wish That You Were Here”, their single for the upcoming motion picture “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”.  If you are a fan of Florence and The Machine, as I am, you are going to adore this new release.  As reported by, [Florence] Welch, lead singer, says the track is 

“about the idea that love is a journey and a risk. Having been on tour, I’ve lived in a sort of magical time bubble, where the days almost blend together. It’s amazing, but it comes at a cost — a cost of leaving the people you love behind for a year or two. You kind of feel like if you could sing a song into the wind, maybe the wind could take it to them in a way that you can’t with a text or a call. You just want to send your love in a different way, in a way to somehow reach the unreachable.”

Item two:

The second item on today’s fabulist is Alexander Birman’s ‘Clarita’ suede and genuine python ankle tie sandal.  This shoe can be found at Nordstrom.  I really love the look of ankle tie heels.  The Clarita will make an adorable addition to your fall wardrobe with its burgundy suede color.

Item three:

The next item on my list is free video barre classes.  The class I have featured was posted to Youtube by Shauna Kathleen and includes a 40-minute full barre workout.  This video is great for those of you that have thought about investing in a barre class; it will provide excellent insight on what the class tempo and exercises will be like.  If you feel the tempo is too fast, slow the video to half pace.  If you don’t like it, you can close it and select another.

Item four:

I love all things pretty.  The next item on my list, the Day Designer fountain pen, is the epitome of pretty.  It is available at Target for about $7.  I got one this week.  I was supposed to be picking up cleaning supplies, but couldn’t help walking through the office supply aisle.  I have been using it for most of this week and I love the way it writes.  And it looks absolutely darling on my desk.

Item five:

Last, but not least, I am in love with my large white bowls from Crate and Barrel.  The husband and I received a gift card to Crate and Barrel as a wedding present nearly 3 years ago.  It clearly took us a little while to choose what we wanted to buy.  We were eating dinner at a restaurant that served us in large white bowls, similar to this one, and we just loved them.  Incredibly motivated by the dinner we had, we went to Crate and Barrel the next day to pick up a set.  Now I find myself wanting to eat out of them every day!
