7. Get Nails Done at Paintbox

I'd been meaning to try Paintbox in Soho all summer and inspiration finally hit after seeing this set by Christina Rinaldi. I was really impressed by the whole experience at Paintbox. They have perfected every aspect of the manicure event from their fabulous seasonal "menu" of designs to their space in Soho to the endless prosecco they'll bring to your station. I went alone, but I highly recommend going with friends, their space is actually huge and is meant to accommodate groups.

Christina is so talented and truly one of my favorite nail artists, for more inspiration check out her Instagram.

13. Complete a Craft Project

So my 15 Things in 30 Days challenge was a total failure. I did manage to complete a few of my goals over the course of the entire summer.

This finished wall hanging is the product of taking Maryanne Moodie's Beginner Weaving Loom Class, purchased here off Etsy. I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in learning how to weave. Maryanne is a fantastic teacher and hosts a fantastic workshop complete with mimosas and local sweet treats.

What I'm Shopping

Spring won't be here for a while, but my mind is very ready for a new neutral palette and some interesting shapes. I've always been into faux tie-waist items (I first blogged about them in 2010 - scary), so these jeans are perfection to me. And for a slight wink, I love this earring in the Euro symbol or an E for Elizabeth.

Need: Creatures of Comfort Bucket Bags

Creatures of Comfort recently launched a range of leather bags and it couldn't have come at a better time. The bags which come in Black, Whiskey and Off White are made of the same kind of leather as the Mansur Gavriel (thin, but structured) bags that are all the rage right now. They come in a few shapes and sizes, but I am in love with the bucket bags in small and large. The best part is that they are that perfect mix between current and timeless.
