Weekend Reading | 07.28.2018


Happy weekend and hello from Sayulita, Mexico. I know, I know. Please don’t unfollow me for traveling so much. I ordinarily do this but it’s been a slower summer with blog campaigns/deadlines/sponsored content. And we wanted to plan a trip to cheer Becca up after everything she’s been through. Although I generally like to be structured, this summer I’ve learned I can definitely still do my job from anywhere!

I got back from my yoga retreat on Monday night and left for Mexico early Thursday morning. Never a dull moment in these parts!!! We rented the CUTEST Air BnB (will share more when I’m back). Also, we are just planning on lots of fun girl time, beach, yoga, cruising around in a golf cart (yes seriously. We rented one!), and lounging by our pool.

Weekend Reading:

Need to make this summery salad – yum!

This lavender button up dress is SO pretty.

How off duty style is really done.

A breathing trick to help you fall asleep fast.

OMG – this rainbow stripe camisole!

SUCH an interesting article about:

Hemingway’s third wife. (Thanks to the reader who emailed it to me!)

The prettiest botanical print top.

How inspiring is this 99 year old yoga teacher?

How to stay hydrated – love this challenge!

This Equipment silk dress just went on sale. We all probably need it.

Flying? Don’t do these things.

Such a pretty floral dress. I’d wear this everywhere.

I was completely fascinated/obsessed with this:

feature on Gwyneth Paltrow and her business.

Loved these tips from Melissa Wood.

Love this slightly boxy, ruffled tee.

How to be more confident!

Love me a good summer sweater!

Improve digestion with Ayurveda.

This was such a good “how I get it done” feature.

Absolutely obsessed with these emerald green earrings.

I’m going to need this:

Dealing with post-vacation brain fog!

LOVE this little white dress!

If Meghan Markle loves  this skincare brand. Then I obviously love it too.

Secrets for shiny hair!

This patterned green skirt is so pretty. And a great price.

My newest beauty obsession on Instagram.

Ruffles that are actually flattering.

Gwyneth’s nineties wardrobe was pretty great.

The CUTEST polka dot midi dress.

    Not that it matters much, but Martha Gellhorn was actually Hemingway’s third wife, not his first. There is a lovely creative non-fiction book about the first wife, The Paris Wife, who with her modest, independent income actually made it possible for him to become a writer.

    Enjoy Mexico, cool casa!

      You’re right – total typo! I wrote this post on the plane mid 36 hour travel nightmare! The Paris Wife is one of my favorites!!!

    I recommend you read “Love and Ruin” by Paula McClain if you’d like to learn more about Martha Gelhorn, this is a work of historical fiction but she of course incorporates a lot of truth about their stories too. I think you’d enjoy given how much you like the genre!

    Hi Grace – enjoy Sayulita!
    I think the link for “How I Get It Done” is wrong.
