A Serpent Moment

Just finished my usual browsing ritual and found the theme of the day, snakes. I can't say I'm a fan of reptiles but there is something so sultry about an accessory with snakes. What do you all think?

Here are a couple of my favorite snake accessories from J. Luxe

The Essential Accessory

What's your favorite thing about a scarf? The comfort and coziness. Or the feeling of I-effortlessly-accessorized? We'd like to think it's a combo. Buy yourself one or buy one as a gift. Nobody doesn't love a good scarf.

New styles have been added to our online shop. Best news--they're all under $25.

Fall Spirit

I usually spend my Sundays doing a whole lot of nothing. This Sunday was pretty productive for a change. I woke up early and caught a hatha yoga class at Mind Body Studio and afterwards indulged in a delicious Mexican feast my mom made. My mom and aunt planned on decorating pumpkins and so we did. I'll admit I only helped here and there...the two of them were the true artists that day. Here are some photos of the gorgeousness. 

What's your favorite fall ritual?

The only pumpkin I decorated. I like to call it Gay Slice.


Masquerade pumpkin--a crowd favorite!

The final cluster of fancy fatties.

J. Luxe Picks: Read it, Watch it, Love it

I'm a little late to the party in terms of movies but I still managed to catch Celeste and Jesse Forever while in theaters. I went alone and yeah, I cried...a lot, but I loved it so much. Felt like I could relate in more ways than I'm proud of.

I'm currently reading two books. This is How You Lose Her is one of them. I've been a longtime fan of Junot Diaz's, thanks to his wonderful The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. His writing is delicious and colorful--if that makes any sense. This is How You Lose Her is a series of short love stories; beautiful, dark, hopeless, hopeful love stories.

If you're wondering what to watch or read next, I recommend these two. Happy Monday!
