Cool Local Event
All local thrift and vintage enthusiasts, I have an event you do NOT want to miss! The Fall Vintage Pop-Up Market is coming to Alexandria, Virginia on October 30th. Hosted by More Than Your Average, a plus-size vintage store and online boutique, this vintage market will also have some of the very best vintage sellers in the area. The market will have apparel, accessories, home decor, and more. The event is from 10-4 at The Ice House (this is an outdoor event); click here to learn more and register to attend for free!
We finished the last season of Sex Education on Netflix and it was campy and ridiculous but utterly delightful and I want more! And the character of Eric is so wonderful, Ncuti Gatwa is brilliant in the role. This season really developed this character beyond the gay best friend with so much nuance and heart. When he went home to Nigeria… that whole episode hit me so hard.
I will miss Eric the most. I will miss Jean Milburn's fashion and home and I'll miss Jakob's smiles but Eric… I will be so sad without some Eric. If you haven't watched this show I highly recommend it!
For Your Entertainment
Who doesn't want to see a movie starring Diane Keaton wearing her own fabulous fashion in a Nancy Meyers-esque home who lost her husband but found a second life in help from her handsome grandson played by Justin Beiber? Okay, maybe it's hokey AF but it's freaking Diane Keaton and you can sound cool that you saw The Beib's latest video that just dropped yesterday morning. 😁
