we heart weekly – 7.24.10

JonHammB we heart weekly   7.24.10 Oh, what a wonderful weekend I am about to have. The number one reason? The Mad Men Season 4 premiere on Sunday! I’ve been waiting for this for what seems like forever. This also allows me to run this scandalously handsome pic of Jon Hamm again as our Photo of the Week. Le sigh…

I’m also excited because other than watching that premiere, I’ve got nothing planned. Nada! I’ve been way too busy lately, and the thought of some glorious nothingness sounds perfect.

Here are some other things that had me excited this week (and if you’ve got nothing planned too, I suggest you give them all a look!)

• Staying on the Mad Men theme, Style.com had an interview with their head makeup artist and a peek at the makeup we’re going to be seeing on the ladies this season.

• Speaking of peeks, Temptalia has added images to her MAC Fabulous Felines preview. It just so happens that last week I started adding to my makeup kitty for this collection specifically…MEOW!

• One of our favorite local boutiques, Swift has been wowing us for years with their amazing selection of high-quality, vintage clothes and accessories. We’re in good company, Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant has declared it one of her favorite shops. Read the Swift interview with Janie here and then check out the ever-changing and mind blowing Swift Etsy store.

• Look what Apartment Therapy found. A world map covered in gold foil made so that you can scratch off any place you’ve traveled to (a la a lottery ticket). I think that may make me travel more. There’s something about taking to foil with a coin that is so satisfying!

• Our shopping buddies at The Beauty Look Book and Orange to LA got a closer look at the new Burberry Beauty line (one word: love!) Sabrina has great photos of the Soft Satin Lipsticks and Diane delves into the Sheer Eye Shadows (which are not so sheer!)

Having a Mad Men theme party? We did for season 3 (and had a whole week of posts to get ready for it). Be sure to check out:

Sex and the Single Girl – a book report on Cosmo editor, Helen Gurley Brown’s 1962 masterpiece. It’s said that Matthew Weiner instructed his female cast to read this in preparation for their roles as mid-century women. (And it may just be one of Krista’s funniest posts).

How about it chicks? What are you up to this weekend?

    Squee – I can’t wait until Mad Men!! All the MM inspired makeup, clothing food etc is making the wait even harder.

    Luckily, I have a few things to occupy my mind including a trip with @sherrishera to the Renegade Craft Fair – whee.

    Plus, tonight marks a big gymnastics night with the US Classic – a big national meet with a TON of great elites competing – so excited it’s on tv!!(I’m a gymnastics nerd in case you didn’t know!)

    What’s everyone else doing?

    I’m so excited for Mad Men! We don’t have cable though, so I think I have to get one of those iTunes season pass things (I’ve never had one before).

    I have to work all weekend, but early next week Brad and I are going camping (my first time)! I’m pretty much just excited for the smores!

    That Jon Hamm picture is just too much. What a fox! I am super excited this weekend to be on my annual vacation with my husband to a music festival near Toronto. It is so great! The only down side is the rain/mud and missing Mad Men on Sunday night. I have to wait until Wednesday. That DVR had better do its job! Have a good weekend everyone.

    I’ve been so busy trying to organize a move that I totally didn’t get to make any canapes or cheese balls for the Mad Men premiere! D’oh! I’d better get on that or my former alcoholic millionaire chain-smoking husband will find another gal from the typing pool to make him cheese mousse… :)

    Just got back in town and finally got to watch the first episode tonight. I absolutely love this show..especially Jon Hamm! Can’t wait for the rest of the season to unfold. Looks like it’s going to be a good one!
