Weekend Reading | 10.13.18

 weekend's links

happy weekend! I had a fancy wedding celebration last night and now I have a low key couple days planned – a belated birthday brunch with my sister and her husband, maybe a movie or two, lots of yoga. I was thinking it could be nice to get up to Central Park and The Met but I’m not sure leaving the city and going up that way is in the cards for me. We shall see! Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s fab…

Enjoy this weekend’s links! XO

  1. Ooh, is it really true that essential oils can improve immunity? I’ve always been a bit “eh” about the effectiveness that people claim of them. Hmmm!

      I think they do! I know that drinking oregano oil has really helped me, but i’m curious to learn more so have been reading a lot of articles like that one!

    Great links this week, Grace! The last link, the classic ivory and white shoes, I actually got an identical pair of Sam Edelman’s last week at Shopbop. Thought I’d let you know in case you don’t want to wait!

      Haha funny you should mention that because I wanted the Shopbop ones but they’re sold out in my size! So this pair was actually the runner up!

    I love any personal finance articles you share!

    Hope you had a restful weekend!

    Hey Grace, just wanted to comment about the essential oil post here and also your oregano oil post that ingesting essential oils can be dangerous. I know you recommend diluting with water but it may be safer to use olive oil or coconut oil if you really want to ingest it. It may just be better to avoid ingesting in general as well. Topical/diffusing seems fine (although careful with diffusing if you have cats, as it can cause lung injury in cats). And it won’t prevent the flu, but could make you feel better after you get it.

    Also, I really want that date night dress, but promised not to buy any clothes in October.
