I am off on vacation this weekend, but have to celebrate this week's Heroine--fashion designer Else Schiaparelli, who I love! She was born on this day in either 1890 or 1896 (I found conflicting reports...) Read about her life here and enjoy your weekend!

It's a holiday weekend, and I am supposed to be making appetizers for a cookout tonight but have spent too long reading this morning, so no time for a proper Heroine post! But I do want to celebrate the birthday (September 2, 1838) of Liluokalani, last monarch and only Queen Regnant of Hawaii (I loved touring the royal palace in Honolulu on a trip to Hawaii and found the history fascinating....) Check out more about her life here...and have a great holiday!
