If my weekend plans could be captured in one photograph, this would probably be it. Have you read the Neapolitan Quartet? I am in love. I read the first one, My Brilliant Friend, and moved onto the second one (The Story of a New Name). We talked about the first one in February’s Reading List but I’m learning that they are a little polarizing – people are either completely fanatical or couldn’t get into them. There was a lively discussion in the Bad on Paper Facebook Group and I learned that both my mom and sister had tried to read them but stopped. I find that they read slowly so can understand why some would get bored, but they are just so beautifully written. Moving on though, happy weekend! I hope yours is great (and hopefully filled with books and cozy time!)
Weekend Reading | 2.16.19
One little first order of business. I applied to a be a part of the new #SephoraSquad. It’s their new influencer initiative, meant to celebrate unfiltered, honest voices in beauty. It would be a dream partnership for me and a part of the application process includes reader testimonials. If you’d like to leave one, I would be beyond grateful. (And a HUGE thanks to all who already have left one – I’ve been blown away by your support!)
The other exciting thing is that we are doing our first ever LIVE PODCAST at Caroline’s on Broadway on April 1st! It’s going to be a fun night and you can get half off your tickets with code BOP. Please come!!!!

Do you still get together with your exes? I’m friends with a lot of mine and really resonated with this piece. The comments were also interesting to read.
