Weekend Reading.

Okay can we talk about the fact that it is already June!? Crazy. My mom is in town, staying with me until Monday. I always get a little stressed having company (especially family… why is that!?) but I am so excited to have some quality time with her. We’re going over my sister’s tonight and tomorrow I am making dinner. It’s nice to have enough space to actually have my family sit down for a home cooked meal! Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful weekend… whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab! XOXO

The best beauty products to pack for a summer weekend away.

Fact: you can’t not have a dance party when you’re wearing this dress.

Realistic ways to save money.

This rainbow maxi dress is so fun on Jenn!

This is my new favorite tee. I got it in white and went back for it in blush and black.

Meet this summer’s best cocktail (I agree!)

This striped off the shoulder dress is so pretty – and only $45.

Liz looks so happy and cute in these photos… and I want her light blue dress! (It’s a great price.)

Having swimsuit anxiety? SAME. This video made me LOL so hard.

I kinda just want to live inside a Tuckernuck catalog. How cute is this little pink dress?

Blair looks so cute in her sunny yellow suit!

This off-the-shoulder top is really cute – and only $18!

This pineapple vanilla bean margarita recipe sounds SO good!

Geri does effortless style so well. I loved this outfit on her.

How good does this protein pasta recipe look? Dying to try Banza thanks to Julia.

This little lace mini is so good. I love the back!

Oh my goodness – how gorgeous is Carly’s Paris hotel? Loving all of that emerald green…

LA living looks so good on Kat – she is glowing in these photos, no?

Totally obsessed with this fruit clutch!

Belle has me thinking I need this $9 striped tee!?

Unclear on how good it will look on me, but ordered this bright blue jumpsuit this week. It’s so fun!

I need to make a summer bucket list – loved reading Mackenzie’s!

Okay I neeeeeed to go to the One Kings Lane store in Southampton!! So dreamy.

Pretty sure I had a striped coverup just like this one when I was five. So naturally I need it at age thirty five.

How gorgeous is this kitchen!?

I ordered these velvet slides this week and will patiently awaiting their arrival til July.

I need to be better about meal-prepping so that I have healthy things to eat at home. This post is chock full of inspiration!

When it comes to beauty, Annie knows her stuff… now I’m thinking I must try this eye cream!

    After having 2 kids in 2 years, I felt fairly certain I would get a tummy tuck at some point. Those photos of plastic surgery procedures made me nauseous though.
