Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend! I am in Charleston. I booked a last minute trip down here this week… it will be nice to get out of the cold for a bit!!! Spending time with friends here for a few nights and then heading back on Monday afternoon… the perfect little weekend escape! I have LOTS of good links for you this week – I hope you enjoy them as much as I did… and in the meantime, have a great weekend + stay warm! XOXO

The perfect canvas tote, hands down. It would be great for errands – or vacation.

I really loved (and related to) this article about our obsession with skincare.

I can’t get enough of these gold eye masks. I keep mine in the fridge.

A new beauty/self-care podcast that I’ve really been enjoying.

More reasons to drink lemon water.

I ordered this under $100 floral dress this week. I love the pattern!!!

I’m fascinated by this small space; it’s beautiful but I could NEVER live in it!

These glittery New Balance sneakers are pretty much everything.

Dating? How to stop the breadcrumbers.

Nobody and Somebody.” I loved this essay!

My faaaaavorite highlighter is available in a little $20 set. This is one of my holy grail products so if you are wanting to try it, this set is the perfect way to do so!

Carly wrote another monster post packed with tips for starting a blog. I wholeheartedly agree with everything she says.

I am so excited that J.Crew has long torso swimsuits… always a problem for me when ordering one pieces. I scooped up this one in cobalt for Cartagena.

This tiny apartment is so well done!

Kat look stunning in her simple white kaftan.

This pom pom sweater is so darn cute!!!

I want to go here.

How fun are these lucite earrings? I haven’t seen anything like them… really cool and different.

I loved this video – tiny habits that add up to help you be more productive/stop procrastinating!

I’m so curious about micro-needling… have you tried it?

I’ve been looking for a great grey coat and this one fits the bill (it’s a good price, too!)

Why dry brushing is just the best.

This striped blouse is just gorgeous.

Got a sore throat? Make this tea.

Blair’s photos from Paris are amazing and I am obsessed with this dreamy blue + white look.

Ordered this week: the yoga mat of my dreams.

This veggie lasagna looks so good!

Need this cozy thermal in my life.

Jenn looks so cute in this eyelet dress (and yay, Charleston!)

It was fun reading the comments on this post about meal prep. So many good ideas.

Need this striped turtleneck in every color.

This Brooklyn brownstone is so lovely.

These architectural earrings look designer but they’re only $34!

Why you might be single (and some practical advice on finding love).

The perfect classic trench – for under $100.

      I guess one questions – do you have any other blog recommendations that do a similar roundup? I love Cup of Jo’s too! I like the substance of the articles you post and the mix of all topics!

    Love starting my Saturdays with your weekly roundups. It’s always the best mix of useful, interesting and fun!! Thanks especially for the link to Carly’s post. A question for you and other responders with blogs — do you think using a Mac is a necessity? I’m starting a blog and need to buy a new laptop. My blog will focus on civic issues in my community, so it may not require as much photo editing ect., as a lifestyle-oriented blog. Thank you!!!

      I’m so glad to hear that!

      I don’t think you have to use a Mac – it’s whatever you’re most productive on. I’m a die hard Mac user and get tripped up using a PC.
