Weekend Reading.

happy weekend and happy Earth Day, friends! I’m getting ready for my upcoming press trip to Mexico… working on a fun story with Fairmont Mayakoba around their bee sustainability program. The resort actually cultivates rare bees which produce a special type of honey known for its medicinal purposes. The honey is then used in spa treatments at the resort (and the kitchen too!) And I get to go there and write about it… I can’t wait! This weekend will be low key. Last night I stayed in doing a bit of work and tonight I’m going to the Tribeca Film Festival (to the premiere of House of Z) with Nexxus and one of my best friends. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great… enjoy! xoxo

A new favorite little white dress… just size way down… I got a size small and it’s slightly big.

Love that Wayne Pate did the (lemon!) fabric on this Whit dress. It’s so pretty!

Julia did such a great job styling a black maxi dress two different ways.

With or without a sunburn, this oatmeal chamomile bath sounds pretty divine.

This (under $100!) wrap dress is perfect for Spring.

How inspiring is this: an 18 year old just received an NCAA college scholarship – for football. So awesome.

These slides are the perfect mix of a shower shoe and a silky bow. Somehow they work!

Loooved this simple (and affordable) dress for weddings + garden parties on Mackenzie!

Why are other people’s food diaries so fun to read? This one was a good one.

The prettiest (all natural!) makeup palette – it has everything you need!

Planning a trip? This clever site tells you the best places to visit every month.

    THIS IS SCARY ACCURATE, I’m single, live in NYC and work in PR. I could have basically written this article. I also want to hang out with this chick because she seems cool and honest (and like me, which is why I like her). At least we are all super self-aware, right?
