Happy weekend. Tomorrow is the day – I am heading to Charleston for the next six weeks. This week was a really busy one getting ready to go. A lot of late nights, a little bit of anxiety! I have been taking some good TV breaks though… I watched the new Diana documentary on Netflix, I’m all caught up on Southern Charm (my guilty pleasure), and I am still absolutely loving The Undoing (best show on TV – HBOMax right now if you ask me). Today is just going to be spent packing, getting ready, cleaning my apartment… with a brunch break with one of my best friends. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! Stay warm (and safe!). XO PS – I’m reallllly intrigued by this documentary: has anyone watched it yet?

I watched The Booksellers a few weeks ago, and it was FANTASTIC. If you love books and book culture I highly recommend it! Going in to it I thought it was going to be very pretentious/stuff, but it’s extremely well done and accessible.
OK that is great to know, thank you!!!!
Really pretty gold desk set. Thanks for sharing it.
Also my favorite movies about sisters includes- Ramona & Beezus.
