The Weekly Download | no.1


For awhile now, I’ve been wanting to publish weekly or bimonthly posts recapping sales, things you might have missed on the blog or on social that week, and general life musings. But I haven’t been able to settle on a title and for anyone who knows me, you know that’s a dark place for me to get stuck.

I go back and forth about the name of my business on a daily basis and I’m still not sure if I love ‘District Sparkle’ almost 7 years later…


Earlier this week, I asked for your suggestions on titles for this series. There were a few gems but I ended up with this, ‘The Weekly Download’. It’s clean, it’s descriptive, and best of all – it doesn’t bother me. TWD it is. Let’s move on before I change my mind.


This week on the blog

What To Wear To a Fall Wedding: every dress is under $200!

I tried the light wash denim trend and I’m into it.



While the Shopbop sale is over, there are plenty of other sales to take advantage of this weekend.

Did you see my LifestyledCo haul? While none of the items are currently on sale, this is absolutely a brand you want to stalk. Immediately. I just placed my first order – the price was right and the quality is stellar. I’ll definitely be making another order in the near future.


Now before I share these sales with you, we need to talk about responsible spending. Don’t shop just because it’s on sale. Shop if what’s on your list is on sale. Don’t have a list? I’ll be covering that next week.

Take an additional 30% off all sale items at Madewell with code ONYOURMARK:

JCrew is having a 40% off sale with code BIGSALE:



I’ve been applying this serum to my face every day for the last month and my skin has never looked better. I apply right after I wash my face in the morning and at night (so, I’m applying twice a day) and then I use this jade roller at night to really work it in. In my opinion, the results I’m seeing are worth the price tag.


Weekend Plans

I’m luring hosting few of my girlfriends tonight for a few photoshoots I need to churn out a well-crafted charcuterie board, homemade pizzas, and boxed spirits. See what I did there? I told you I was working on new content! Followed by a little outdoor adventure then a full weekend of work and gearing up to head to DC next week. Caps, La Colombe cold brew, and an unnecessary Georgetown shopping indulgence, I’m comin’ for ya.

Around the Web

It’s not that there’s nothing going on around the web, it’s that I’ve been living and breathing a client project (that’s due today) and time for web surfing has been non-existent. I’m in the home stretch and those mindless moments scrolling through my phone are at my fingertips. See you on the other side.

    I love love LOVE the coat (black check, leather trim) you’re wearing in the top pic. Where did you buy it?

      It’s from Of Mercer – either last year or the year before so I’m not sure it’s still around. Such a great piece, though!
