Weekend Reading, 12.19.20

Happy weekend. I can’t believe that Christmas is next week.  It  feels so crazy to me and my time here has passed WAY TOO QUICKLY: I head home to Brooklyn two weeks from today. This week was pretty chill. I saw a few friends, had some very yummy family dinners, walked a bunch and got in my workouts… now I’m preparing to take a little break. I’ll be on instagram here and there but will not be publishing new content here from 12/25 through 1/3, though I may recirculate some older favorite posts… we’ll see. So this is my last weekend reading list for a couple weeks… I hope you love these links!

    Loved the article about Mayor Pete. But, I just learned that he’s YOUNGER than me?? I guess it’s only by one year & three months, but still, lol.

    Only two weeks left in Charleston? :-/. I’ve been loving the “southern” content!

  5. Thank you for a year full of great weekend readings, Grace. I hope you are having a great time with your loved ones in these last few days of 2020!

    Loved the round up of skincare tools – didn’t even know about half of them existed! – and the year of bad posts. Also, I am just running to the grocery store to pick up everything I need to attempt the spicy butter chicken and some naan, it looks too appealing to pass!

  6. I loved the books that gave hope article and that leopard fleece — but in the blue check! Something that irritates me about myself is that I will read a great post on Shondaland and immediately forget that the site exists until I see another link to it. I need to get my RSS feeds up to date again.

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
