Weekend Reading, 11.10.12

This week was spent getting back on track post-Sandy.  The highlight for me (besides the election) was getting to be a part of BaubleBar + Essie’s collaboration (shop the collab here + see more from the photo shoot here.)  Stefan was away for work.  As much as I missed him, it was good to have some me-time as I’ve felt really behind on everything.  I spent my evenings catching up on work, blog stuff, bad TV and reading Gone Girl.  (I know… I live on the edge.)  There was a little fun in there too… on Wednesday, I had a few of my best girlfriends over for a yummy little wine and cheese night.  I find that as we get older it gets harder and harder to get my crew together.  It was really nice to spend some quality time together!  This weekend, we will be seeing the new Bond, celebrating my sister’s birthday, celebrating a little Friendsgiving and I have a whole bunch of (exciting!) blog stuff + projects in the works.  Stefan got home last night so we had a nice cozy night in… Take-out, couch time, perfection.  Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope it’s fabulous!

  4. So nice to hear that you and your girlfriends got together – it’s true that it’s harder to see each other when you get older, so it’s nice to see it’s possible to keep seeing eachother!

  5. Lots of great reading tips, and I especially love the brow 101… haha I’m in dire need. Also, I feel your pain on getting your friends together… all of mine live in different countries and continents! I can’t blame them though, I moved from Canada to Australia myself, so I didn’t exactly make a get together any easier! Hope you had a great weekend 🙂
