Weekend Reading 2.13.21.

Happy (long, if you have Monday off) weekend, and happy Valentine’s Day. This was a really nice week. Very cozy. And I did not leave my house much except for a fun (but freezing!) dinner on Thursday night. I cooked a lot. I read a lot. And I took baths. The good stuff. There will be more of that this weekend. I am taking Monday off(ish) I have a few projects due to brands but am more or less going to spend the long weekend offline and am pretty excited about that. Seeing my niece, cooking some more, reading a bunch… the usual! Whatever you are up to, I hope you a) stay warm and b) have fun! XOXO

First of order of biz is two big sales!

  • This Biossance sale is SO good! To celebrate four years, they are doing $25 off of $65, with code 4YEARS – I love all of their products (literally the only thing I don’t like is the eye gel, love everything else) but am especially obsessed with the new Vitamin C Serum (for daytime) and of course the Lactic Acid Serum.
  • ALSO, the Our Place Pan is $30 off! Use code MAGIC30

    Ok, that amazing Biossance offer finally got me! I’ve been looking at their products for a while, since you love them so much, and today finally purchased the Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil. Can’t wait to try it. Plus it will look so pretty in my cabinet 🙂 Thanks Grace!

      Maggie, I don’t know you but it’s funny… I include links about cats and think to myself, “Oh, Maggie is going to love this one!” Had to share that, haha!
