Weekend Reading | 11.9.19

Happy weekend! I am back in New York and feeling a little bittersweet – our live show tour is over with! It’s a good thing as I’m pretty tired but I’m of course a little sad because the shows were so much fun. We did New York last Friday (our biggest and maybe best show to date!) and then Dallas this past Wednesday. It’s been a lot of travel, that is for sure! This weekend is going to be v. low key. Last night I had a housewarming party for my friend Kat and tomorrow I have a bridal shower and otherwise, I’m going to be resting and working and getting ready – the next two weeks are my busiest for the blog! Whatever you’re up to I hope it’s great (and that you stay warm – winter seems to have arrived?!) xoxo

PS – whatever you do, don’t forget about the Sephora sale! It ends 11/11. My picks here!

Weekend Reading | 11.9.19

I have been reading the Modern Love book and it is so good. Maybe even better than the TV series! If you watched, and are having a post-show hangover, def read it. It’s packed with essays (way more than the show) and I have cried no fewer than 15 times reading it.

As you get into the holiday spirit, here are 17 things you might not know about Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is you!

I am obsessing over this tiny, elegant velvet bag!

Loved Merritt’s shoot at the TWA hotel – I’m dying to go!

This planner set would make a great gift!

Whoa, apparently “Trader Joe’s influencers” are a thing!

I definitely want to try some of these eye makeup tricks.

I ordered more of my favorite body serum this week. SO good especially since the cold weather turns me into a reptile!

Cozy season is here.

Succcch a cute wrap sweater. In plus sizes here!

On making friends as an adult.

Jennifer Anniston is tired of people saying she looks great… for her age. Kinda agree! Just tell someone they look great! Loved learning more about her beauty routine.

My favorite ultra soft bathrobe. I’ve basically been living in it since I got home.

Loved the story behind one of my all time favorite fragrances.

How FUN is this animal print fleece pullover!? It’s also only $25.

Okay I’m intrigued by these insulated food containers.

Something we get asked about a lot – dealing with the end of a friendship.

Current favorite (clean!) mascara.

Why you should always order ginger ale on the plane.

Such a cute top.

    I really do love listening to the podcast, but the live shows and all that goes with them (the staged photo shoots, the room tours, the getting ready stories) have become so predictable and unenjoyable. I’m glad they’re over so I can go back to consuming your wonderful blog and IG content!

    I love reading about all the beauty routines, and I think Anniston is wonderful, but I do wish she would lay off the sun a bit. I support the personal choice, but I think the tan look is bad… I just see dry alligator skin… Living at the beach, I see so many women who completely lose sight of just how tan they are. It’s not a good look…

      I was taken aback by that too!

        P.S. But I did not intend to be mean spirited! My apologies!! I came back on to restate as I realize my comment came across snarky. Jennifer Anniston is excellent. I think she would be even more excellent with creamy pale skin. 😉

    Thank you so much for sharing our post Grace! I feel like you’re one of the best at making friends as an adult haha. xx

    Is there such a thing as clean mascara that is waterproof? I have hooded eyes so mascara smudges like crazy on me unless its waterproof. Just curious if you’ve come across anything like that. Thanks!

      I haven’t found one – but I haven’t looked very hard as I don’t like waterproof mascara! If I hear about one I will let you know.
