Weekend Reading.

happy, happy weekend! This week was a busy one. I can’t believe that we are heading into the last week of August! As much as I love (adore – it’s my favorite season) Fall in New York, I feel like June was just two weeks ago – time has been passing far too quickly lately. I relaunched my Youtube channel this week which was fun. I’d love it if you’d consider subscribing – I will be releasing new videos every two weeks… maybe more frequently! This weekend I don’t have much planned except for a spa day tomorrow, and getting to The Whitney at some point to (finally) see the Calder exhibit. Weekends without much planned are always my favorite, and I can’t remember the last time I got a massage… I’m so excited for a bit of pampering!

Oh! Before we dive into this week’s links, a little bit of housekeeping! I finally added an email feature where you can get my daily posts sent to your inbox. I can’t believe it took me so long – oops! You can sign up for both my daily posts and weekly newsletter on this page.

I love this cozy looking lace-up tee. It comes in so many pretty colors!

As much as I do love her, this made me laugh so hard (especially #1) – Goop’s 23 most ridiculous moments. It’s amazing.

20 Tips for a more productive work week.

I never shop in stores anymore but I spotted the most amazing trench on sale in Bloomingdales this week and immediately bought it. They only had one (the size 40/6 fits me perfect) but I was delighted to see that there are more online, and it’s also available here.

    All great picks! Can’t wait to try the Rose masque. If this is helpful I made the mistake of storing my crispin earrings in the glove compartment of my vehicle in between outfit changes and left them there. The heat made the threads unravel. Learned they need to be stored at room temperature. Just thought I’d share this tidbit so no one else makes same mistake.

      Oh wow – that is great advice! And what a bummer. Did you reach out to BaubleBar? They have amazing customer service (I worked there forever haha) and would probably replace.

        I know, who would’ve thought! Sadly the black crispins were no longer available, but they did give me a merchandise credit. Decided not to press my luck and ordered the gold signet ring instead. 🙂

    Just subscribed to your channel. I AM OBSESSED with that video, so fun to watch! For someone who says they’re shy or awkward, you NAILED it and were so awesome. Bobby sounds JUST like the guy from Vogue too. Can’t wait to see more of your video content, Grace!
