Summer vs. Winter
Edited by: Emily of Sugar & Spice
It’s strange to think that while here in the UK we’re finally basking in a little sunshine, some places are entering Autumn (Fall!) and Winter. This week’s posts reflect the two hemispheres with posts on Fall trends and beach essentials. What a better time to be experiencing a little of summer in the UK as we welcome the Olympics to London this week! And did you know it’s the 66th birthday of the bikini? Plus, whether you’re shopping the sales this week or shopping away the blues, there’s a guide for you here:

    Just making sure the HTML still isn’t up. I’m in Paris so want to make sure I’m not missing anything!

  15. I have not been able to get the HTML code yet, just wanted to make sure it hasn’t been posted or if it is an issue with my computer

    Thanks for choosing me… there’s a lot of great work here. Does anyone have the HTML? I don’t want them to think I didn’t repost the link or anything, but I can’t seem to find it. Any help would be appreciated…

  18. Bespoke Gina says:

    Jill, I haven’t found it either. I don’t think it’s there yet.

      I still haven’t found it either! How long does it usually take? Now there’s a new Links A La Mode forum for August 1st and I feel like I missed something?

    Still not working for anyone? I want to make sure I do everything right! :)

    So am I missing something, or is there still no HTML up? Thanks!
