Weekend Reading.

This weekend is going to be nice and extreeeemely low key. Lady. of. Leisure. I have to start getting ready for Asia (we leave on Thursday) and have a bunch of work to finish before I leave, but I’m otherwise planning on making this weekend as wonderfully relaxing as possible. A new park opened in Williamsburg and I want to go check it out/lounge and read, and I really want to run across the bridge (SO hard but such a good workout)!!! I used to do it every day… time to get back into it. PS – My apartment was on Apartment Therapy this week… I’m so honored – pop over and see it!

I’ve been reading a lot about intermittent fasting and thought this video was interesting and informative.

My favorite clear acrylic hoop earrings are back in stock. They are the best – snap ’em up before they sell out again! (Or get the look for less with these!)

I loved these 2018 Sex & The City home makeovers.

Loved this preview of Helena’s back yard -it looks really amazing.

A little bit obsessed with these inexpensive sunglasses (in the nude color).

How amazing is this DIY fruit straw bag?! Such a fun idea.

Pretty pearl slides that won’t break the bank.

I’m a little scared but want to try microblading.

This hydrating smoothie sounds delicious.

Such a cute striped dress.

Loved this interview with Sutton Foster (and so happy that Younger is back!).

A bit in love with this embroidered white dress.

Yassss, facial massage.

Lauryn takes her beauty sleep v. seriously so I loved her tips for bedtime.

This rainbow stripe sweatshirt went right into my shopping cart!

Now this is seriously amazing news.

Love this little lace bomber. It’s like the white lace top, in jacket form.

This got shared to the Bad on Paper Facebook Group and as a TV obsessed person I really enjoyed reading it: A Feminist History of Teen Drama.

Why we don’t do the things we intend to do.

The mascara I’m flat out obsessed with – review coming on Monday afternoon!

Krystal has had such a fun summer of travel. Loved her Lisbon pics (dying to get to Portugal)!

The perfect low summer sandals.

Outdated diet myths.

I always love Liz’s playlists – here’s a fun, happy one!

Totally thought these were Loeffler Randall.

Jess’s master bedroom looks so great and I spy a few of my sister’s things!

Pretty sure I need these striped espadrilles.

I saw Blair at polo and can attest – her pink & green sequined outfit was fabulous.

Simple ways to be more sustainable.

The print on this blouse is so happy and fun.

Carly looks great in this slightly sporty summer dress.

Oh wow this maxi dress is so fun – I love the lace, the color combo, the pattern… and it’s on sale for under $70!

On feeling more confident in a swimsuit.

Oprah-approved beauty products.

How insanely fun are these fruit bowl earrings!?

Seriously good career advice.

I obviously need this fruit salad dress.

Tips & tricks for structuring your to-do list.

I loved Jenn’s pics from polo – such an amazing day!

I’ve been looking for a good oversized denim jacket and really like this one.

Napping is important.

Pretty sure I need this summer-perfect LBD.

  1. I still can’t believe you were on Apartment Therapy! I love that blog, I’ve probably also seen your house tour on it already! 🙂

    I’ve been practicing intermittent fasting for about a year now and really like it. I eat between 12:00 and 8:00 every day, but I do have a cup of coffee in the morning (this is the first I’ve heard of not being able to have coffee). I always felt that eating breakfast just triggered my hunger for the rest of the day and I have really responded well to the fasting. I sometimes cheat on weekends, but it’s been a great practice for weekdays!

    I’m thinking the fruit bowl earrings with the fruit salad dress might be too fruity? Ha,ha,ha! BTW- I bought the Taylor floral dress that you showed at the end of April for my tall 14 year old daughter to wear to my MIL’s 80th bday party and she looked fab. We are crawling to the finish line of school days and we are also looking forward to a restful weekend! Whew! Can’t wait for your Asia trip posts!

  6. Microblading is amazing! I went to the same woman in as this R29 writer did and basically had an identical experience. https://www.refinery29.com/3d-eyebrow-embroidery
