Weekend Reading | 2.15.20

Happy weekend! I have had a busy week with company in town all week long and a bunch of dinners + events so tonight I am planning to just curl up and BLOB (to use Becca’s expression) in my comfiest sweats. I really want to watch the Ralph Lauren documentary (I forgot about it!!!). And I’m currently reading a few different books (we are vetting our March book club picks for the podcast). I finished this book this week and it’s one of the best thrillers I’ve read in ages – kept me up all night and worth the pre-order (I got mine early via Book of the Month), and started on this one (British chick lit which isn’t my usual genre but it’s cute so far!). Whatever you’re up to I hope it’s great and if you are in NYC, stay WARM!

Fantastic resume advice.

These sparkly hair clips are SO pretty!

How do we feel about #sponcon for politics? I lean toward no, personally (for me + my channels) though I did get a kick out of the Bloomberg memes.

A tiny pub for hedgehogs!

This $75 dress looks like it’s from SEA or somewhere way more expensive!

This $18 blouse is a dead ringer for Reformation. (Also love this one.)

Intrigued by these lip crayons.

How to brighten up any apartment.

I love the back of this easy white blouse.

Loved gawking over this East Williamsburg house makeover.

I need a lemon yellow blazer, right???

Apparently I need to try this $6 lipstick?

Somebody throw a party so that I can bring this no bake key lime pie. YUM.

Love these simple emerald green link earrings. Chic and minimal.

Looove this gold link sunglasses chain!

Money rules to follow.

    The little Caesar’s ad is really annoying. It’s disruptive and takes away from your content. I look forward to this post, but I can’t deal with that ad. I hope we don’t see it again. Or switch to something small in the corner that doesn’t interfere? Telling you as a friend! I get the money side, but thinking it’s not worth it?! xx

    • Hey! I’m really sorry about that. I actually can’t see it, and all ads are served by my network. Any chance you could screen shot and send to grace @ thestripe.com? I can send to my ad network and ask them to block the ad.

        Hi! Thanks for responding! I don’t see it on there anymore! It was covering some of your content and took a few seconds to then be able to close out of it and see your content again. It was making it difficult to look at what you posted. If I see it again I’ll send a picture to you. Maybe a one off?
        You have a great blog. I hated sending that to you, but thought you might want to know. I look forward to your weekend reading. And book lists, etc. Always enjoy it!!

        • Yeah, the ads tend to rotate through so you don’t always see the same one!

          I don’t really know how it works but I reached out to SHE Media (my ad network) and asked them to block the ad. Another reader sent me a screenshot so I passed that along to them.

          Really appreciate it!

      I was going to say hard no on those bubble sneakers. They look like grandma’s orthotics.
