Happy weekend. I actually have a lot planned this weekend. It’s mostly work stuff but fun work stuff so it doesn’t really feel like work? We’re recording the podcast today with Danielle Prescod, I have a friend’s 40th birthday party tonight, and tomorrow I am taking a facial gua sha workshop. (v. v. excited for this… I’m going to report back with everything I learn in an upcoming blog post!) This was a fun week overall. I have been a little down in the dumps but this week’s episode of the podcast was one of my all time favorites and recording with Becca + Katie really cheered me up. I filmed my apartment with NBC Open House (!!!), and on Thursday I got to do a fun little staycation with Caudalie at the 1 Hotel Central Park which was the absolute best. Such a fun and relaxing night away.

This closet makeover is SO good.
My Cuban friends opened a store. This is such a huge deal if you know about the economy there, and how hard it is to get anything done. I’m planning to go visit this winter.
The perfect “going out top,” for under $100.
How to practice self care… for free!
How to make your bed into the coziest place on the planet.
I need these earrings, right?
Loved learning a little more about Blair!
Loved these photos of Krystal, and her thoughts on tidying up her life.
Such a chic coat (I want the blush pink!)
After yesterday’s post, a reader sent me this post about being single in your thirties. Love.
How these celebs spent their first big paychecks.
I honestly don’t know how this happened but I was watching Youtube videos and somehow got to this one where a woman buys a box of random Amazon returns. (Have you heard of this?) I watched the entire video. Fascinating and entertaining and also my worst nightmare as a box of random stuff sounds awful. I then went down a whole rabbithole ultimately subscribing to her channel. Loved this $5 clothing haul too. Her videos are hilarious, better than TV!
As a lover of all things buffalo chicken, I can’t wait to make this!
Vince’s cashmere sweaters. Want this in every color, it’s perfect. Sigh.
Starting a new chapter is scary.
Need this green off the shoulder sweater!
I treated myself to new pajamas this week and these are so nice. (I got the navy and the patterned red/orange.) They’re a great price and have a definite Olivia von Halle vibe but you can throw them in the wash.
This is a really good week of outfits.
I loved Thomas’s post about the best gadgets of 2018. I agree on the airpods, ordered the Courant charging mats, and have major Roomba envy!
Ugh I have SO MANY COATS but do I need this checked one? Love.
This ikea dresser makeover is so smart!
How to buy your first piece of art.
Love the structured silhouette of this little bag. Perfect for parties.
