Weekend Reading.

Happy Weekend friends! I am looking forward to a low key weekend as this was a busy one and if you follow on insta-stories you might have seen there was a bit of drama in my apartment. We had a gas leak and to get to the pipes a crew had to take apart my bedroom, closet, and bathroom. It was annoying (and scary!) but almost fixed now, at least I’ve been able to put my closet back together. So this weekend is all about laying low. Wrapping gifts, movies, seeing friends, and (gasp!) getting to the gym. I am going to yoga this morning which will make three days in a row! Hey, we have to celebrate the small things, right!? That’s my mantra lately… I’ve been so overwhelmed by the big picture and I find that if I can break the big stuff up into smaller projects I am more likely to a) make a dent in it and b) be less stressed! Anyway, whatever you are up to, I hope that you stay warm and are able to enjoy a day or two off!

The ultimate Paris apartment!

Always love a good tunic sweater – this one is flirty and cute.

5 ways to give back during the holidays.

LOVE this easy updo for hair – even I can do this!

My fav sweater is back in stock!

Kat threw the prettiest holiday party… love all her entertaining tips + tricks!

Pat McGrath is having a sale – which never happens. Her lipsticks are one of my obsessions (McGrath Muse is the ultimate red). The pigments are insane and they won’t dry out your lips. (Also, the packaging is gorgeous which doesn’t hurt!). Use code LabLove15.

The bows on these pumps are SO fun!

Winding down without wine.

Comforting holiday cocktails that sound so good!

My ideal party dress.

I thought this was a really interesting read: Wellness trends to watch in 2018.

The prettiest top. I obviously need it.

A new-to-me earrings designer that I’m kinda obsessed with now.

Well, at least this is some good news?

Not for the snow but these sure are pretty!

Loved my sister’s video on how to wallpaper.

OMG I need these crazy earrings immediately.

I need to go here!

Nike is having a big sale. Shop Take $20 off $100 or more with code HOLIDAY20. Ends 12/17.

Makes me want to start journaling again.

Such a pretty off the shoulder top in my favorite fabric of the moment.

I really respect Helena’s opinion when it comes to beauty so I loved hearing her December favorites!

This cozy shirt came in the mail this week and it’s the absolute greatest. So comfy!

I love how Will captured the first snow in New York! His photography always stuns.

Jackie’s snow photos are also really gorgeous and did you see she has a beautiful print shop?

This coat (as per Monday’s post) is the greatest and came back in stock in a few sizes and colors!

Victoria always has the BEST roundups.

I’m always on the hunt for cute dresses with sleeves (arms are less than perfect at the moment) and this one is so cute!>

Blair’s Palm Beach photos were a fun break to all this cold weather!

Julia rounded up some really pretty dresses to wear on New Years’ Eve!

The prettiest party dress (I love the red!) for only $118.

I want all of these cozy things for my home!

The perfect yummy lumberjack flannel.

Olivia looks ultra glamorous and gorgeous in these photos.

    Love these links, Grace!
    Glad to hear everything is OK at your apartment though — I’m sure that was scary! Tonight my boyfriend’s family is doing a bar crawl from Grand Central to Rockefeller Center, so that should be very interesting 😉

    Yikes at your apartment hassle. I hope they’re able to fix the problem quickly and there’s no more disruption.

    Those bird earrings are cute! Pat McGrath’s makeup is on my to try list. Canada’s Sephora now carries the line.
