Some pretty big things are happening this week, womanistas! School is back in session, there is a slight chill of fall in the air, and football season is underway (ok fine it’s just preseason, but I’m still excited!) Here are some other happenings this week that are particularly awesome!
J.Crew “Style Sessions”: This Thursday, August 22nd, The J.Crew store at the Mall at Green Hills is kicking off their fall collection with a BANG. A major bang. As in, you get access to free styling, a first look at the new collection AND a chance to be featured in their upcoming Style Guide. And are you ready for the major awesomeness? Mention that you heard about this event on Womanista and get 20% off of EVERYTHING!! Be there from 6-8PM on Thursday, womanistas.
New Albums from John Mayer, Ben Rector, & Parachute: A few of my favorite artists have new albums out this week! (well, Parachute’s album came out last week but it’s SUPER awesome! Check out the acoustic version of “Hurricane” – OMG) John Mayer’s “Paradise Valley” gets back to his troubadour roots (which I love!) and it also features a sweet duet called “Who You Love” with his real-life girlfriend, Katy Perry. Ben Rector is one of my all-time faves, and this album is listenable & breezy. Check out “Sailboat” and “Thank God for the Summertime” (amen to that!)
“Speak Love” by Annie Downs: If you read my recent post about my favorite Nashville bloggers, you already know that my friend Annie Downs has a new AMAZE book coming out called “Speak Love” – well, it’s out TODAY! It’s a book about making your words matter – Annie encourages girls (and everyone, for that matter!) through funny stories, anecdotes, scripture & thoughtful asides to combat the current “mean girl” culture and learn to use our words in meaningful way. Make sure to pick this book up for a teen girl you love!
