Weekend Reading.

weekend reading | may 20, 2017 | the stripe

Happy Sunday! Links are up a day late (sorry!) as this week got a little crazy. I chose palm trees for this week’s photo, as I am presently daydreaming about a few days away – I’m headed to Palm Springs next week where I will be speaking on a panel to a bunch of travel executives… and then I’m sticking around a few days after (hoping to be able to enjoy a few relaxing days in the California sunshine!) Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! XOXO

The Instagram game keeps changing. Here’s the latest, and why (if you’re trying to build a following) you should focus on stories, first!

  1. I’ve actually begun a hunt for a new SPF (can you believe I still don’t wear SPF daily and I’m 24 now…?) so the article on clean SPF will be super helpful!
