Weekend Reading | 1.4.20 | The Stripe

Welcome, 2020! I am back home in Brooklyn and it feels so good to be back in my routine after almost two weeks away. I had the best time in Charleston and California. The wedding was so much fun and then I had the best New Year’s Eve ever…. my friend in Charleston had a party and it was just a perfect night with so many good friends. Yesterday was a STRUGGLE to work. I wrote this post, recorded next week’s episode of the pod, slogged through emails, and did not accomplish much else! It’s always hard to get back in the swing of things after a break. Better luck next week! I do have lots of good stuff for you to click on this week though… enjoy! XOXO

Loved reading this article with one of my fav romance authors: Jasmine Guillory.

My favorite lace blouse now comes in several new colors (including emerald green). I already have it in cream and navy. Highly recommend.

Very much enjoyed my mind body green horoscope.

The twelve best books of the year so far.

Love the looks of this cozy sweater... it looks so soft and I love the colors.

I just got this cashmere scarf and it is EVERYTHING. A splurge piece for sure, but so nice. Highly recommend.

This instagram post from Paulina Porizkova is a must-read. Let’s shatter that box, ladies.

This backyard yurt in Bed-Stuy is kind of awesome.

Life changing books.

Goal-setting tips that actually work.

This is a very cute date night/going out top!

I thought this article about Game of Thrones and female ambition was interesting.

This face stick from Tatcha is my latest beauty obsession. Perfect for travel and on the go touch-ups if you have dry skin.

Why does everyone love soup so much!
