Weekend Reading 1.29.21

Happy weekend! I am up in the mountains of North Carolina this weekend with four of my girlfriends. I have been saying for a while now that I’d love more local getaways and adventures close to Charleston so have been really looking forward to this little trip. My friend Molly planned a fun little getaway for us at High Hampton (it’s Blackberry Farm’s sister property in NC) and I’m looking forward to some chilly, cozy wintery weather… hanging out by the fire, snowy hikes, ETC. I will tell you all about it when I get back (or follow along on Instagram) but I am excited.

  1. I swear upon everything that few things smell more amazing than someone else’s toast. My toast? It’s ok. But if my husband is toasting something or someone in the office (back when I still went in) is toasting something it smells DIVINE.

  2. My biggest takeaway from this entire post is that I had no idea City Bakery closed, and despite now living 3,000 miles away, I am not OK with this.

    Hi Grace, I would love to know if you love your Kelly Wearstler lamp (i.e. worth the money??) I’ve been eyeing the black one for what feels like forever and just have never pulled the trigger. Love the weekend reading as well!

      Also, another fun single person book is What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman (spoiler – it’s travel!).

    • I love it so much – it’s hard for me to say it’s worth the money if I don’t know someone’s budget but I am very very happy with mine. I think home items are worth the extra money as you are in your space so much (vs an outfit etc!)
