This has already been quite the week. Portland's temps spiked again, ugh. Battling some 93 degree days this week and the apartment is sweltering even with the AC running upstairs. My kitty has a hurt paw and he has been living in the cone of shame to prevent him from messing with a missing claw. I've been feeling under the weather, whether its related to something I ate, exhaustion from sleeping poorly the whole week, or some kind of travel bug I picked up... And Ben is still gone, working on his grandparents' farm in Ohio. He returns tomorrow, thank goodness, and hopefully I'll be feeling better and he'll be home for good for at least a good 6-8 months.
I am so excited for this week to end, to feel better, and to get back in gear for the rest of August and then the fall (which includes upcoming events like friends' weddings, the September Portland Fashion Weekend, Feast PDX, and more). To kick July to the curb and get ready for the upcoming month and seasons, I wanted to host a giveaway from an independent designer! I am so excited to introduce Wear the Paint, a fantastic hand-painted line of tanks, sweatshirts, and tees. I'm wearing the giant rose painted sweatshirt (perfect for Portland) in this post and am giving away a tank-version of this sweatshirt! Enter to win below, running for one week and open to U.S. residents!
