Happy weekend, friends! I hope it’s a wonderful one.
We had a LOT of Afternoon Chats here this week and they were all fun! Yesterday, we talked about our favorite First Day of School outfits. And throughout the week, we talked Holy Grails: Jeans, bras; night creams; and eye creams. Check them out, and share yours!
Over at Drinks With Broads: As usual, And Just Like That was confounding albeit with some great real estate porn; Tuesday’s Free For Everyone Issue brought the absolute delights of Only Murders in the Building and Heather’s review of J. Lo Beauty, plus more Billionaires On the Loose; and Thursday, our paid subscribers got a piece covering everything from Love Island to Edith Wharton, with a stop over at Mila and Ashton’s Airbnb and Grace Kelly’s favorite villa, and brief discussion about Britney’s divorce. Come on by!
Are you a dog person? Do you have dog people friends and family who need gifts? I rounded up unhinged (and not!) dog-themed items from beach towels to Christmas ornaments to lamps to wallpaper!
Speaking of pets, at Vulture: Cat Performances, Ranked.

I DON’T want to do this: “You Can Book a Hot Air Balloon Ride to the Edge of Space in 2024 for $133,000.” [Travel and Leisure]
But I MIGHT want to do this: “How to Dress Like a Scandinavian Fashion Girlie This Season.” [The Cut]
