Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend! Can you believe that tomorrow is New Year’s Eve? Crazy! I am throwing a little get together as I just wanted to stay home this year. It’s a fun mix of a few friends who are all also just sticking around… nothing too exciting but I think it will be really nice! Posting was a little lighter this week than usual as I wanted to unplug a bit and get ready for next week, when I will be launching my wellness challenge! (Sneak preview here but it launches on Monday so be sure to come by the blog to get your challenge for the week!!!)

Holy moly – how cool are these New Year’s Eve hacks!? If you are throwing a party, check ’em out. I must have watched it at least 5 times.

I got myself these wireless headphones for Christmas and am obsessed – what took me so long!?

Speaking of NYE, I ordered these glasses for my own little get together as they are amazing and hilarious.

    Great roundup! I love the amount of articles on bettering yourself and relationships, and especially the feminist quotes! Maybe there’s an influx of these pieces because of the new year, but I’m a fan!

    Loved the article about relationship comparison. I always cringe when I hear people say “relationship goals” because, while relationships are amazing and magical, they can also be exhausting, frustrating, and heartbreaking no matter how much you love each other. Even the couples who look perfectly happy on the outside inevitably have their issues and that’s kind of the beauty of being in love, really.
