Happy Friday my friends. How was your week? Seems to have flown by for sure. Did you know there is only 43 days until Christmas? While I don’t want to wish away Thanksgiving for some reason I am really stoked for Christmas this year! So excited to see family and celebrate in style.

Check out this really cute notepad I found on Etsy. Made by a Clevelander for any CLE lover! Get yours today and let the holiday shopping commence! Anyhow…onto this weekend.

There are lots of holiday-esque celebrations happening this weekend and things to continue the fall mood…happy fall weekends everyone!

  Friday Fun!


Just another gorgeous Friday in the 216, don’t you think? Time to dig into your work day as the weekend fun is in sight. As always there are so many fun, creative things happening around town so I thought I would share a few fun one.

First off, you’ve got to check out the super creative project that my friend Ali and her other “pattern-partners-in-creative” are making. This awesome pattern coloring book is perfect for zoning out and igniting your inner child. Their book of abstract patterns truly seems to be just the thing to make you step away from twitter, email and the daily chores becoming one with the scent of fresh crayons, bold color palettes and pattern play. While the “free period” coloring books are going to be just that FREE, the initiative needs a bit of funding…a little cash to print and distribute would be awesome! Check out their kickstarter page and give a little of give a lot, heck, give a lot, I know their book will be a super delight for us all. Go now & donate!

Another creative project happening is the preview party of a super adorable infant fashion line, Bacabuche. Making its debut this evening at Lingg Gallery, stop in to see the sweetest contemporary apparel line for babies designed right here in the CLE. 5-8pm,  wine for the grown ups. For more info visit Lingg’s site!

Feeling like shopping for a new “unmentionables?” This weekend Saks Fifth Avenue at Beachwood Place is hosting their annual Fit For A Cure event. Complimentary fittings and a donation to Race for the Cure…it’s a win win. I mean we ladies all need ’em, and shopping for them isn’t always the best, so this weekend why not treat yourselves and give back?

Don’t miss out on tomorrow’s Lakewood Music Festival hosted by Mahall’s featuring Talir Kweli…we’ll be there, how about you?

There are lots of other engaging creative music events happening this weekend including tonights Pechakucha (always an enlightening good time!), Saturday’s Lake Affect Art & Music Fest in Asia Town, and Sunday’s Cleveland One World Festival.

If nothing else get yourself to the beach…it’s gonna be a beauty weather-wise. Peace & happy Friday.
