Hope you guys are enjoying the weekend!
I don’t have a lot planned but I do know that I’m going to get to yoga today and tomorrow and go see Crazy Rich Asians tomorrow night. Have you seen it? Did you like it? I’m literally the only person I know who didn’t like the book (I actually put it down), but I still want to see the movie. Oh and we have to record the podcast at some point, so there is that! This week was a mixed bag for me. (the good: a fun lunch with Kiehl’s, a party with Vogue, getting ready for Morocco next week // the bad: Passport DRAMA!) but overall pretty good. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s fab – enjoy this week’s roundup!

aw thanks charmaine – hope you’re having a great weekend!
You are not alone. I hated the book as well, and abandoned it somewhere in the middle. I still hope that it translates better into the big screen and wanna see the movie…
So glad someone else agrees!
Definitely recommend a menstrual cup, surprised it hasn’t been a topic here yet! I’ve been using them since 2011 and I’ll NEVER go back.
I didn’t like the book either and I am an avid reader (and not too picky) just like you. I thought that the writing and content was shallow and the topic has been done a million times before. Very boring. I have 0 desire to see the movie. I’m going to Morocco in January! Can’t wait to hear about your trip.
Thanks Rach! I’m so excited!
Thought the book was meh, the brand name dropping was just nonstop. On the other hand LOVED the movie, so much better in my opinion, I connected with the story way more! And there is an amazing scene toward the end between the two main women, don’t want to give it away but it’s full of symbolism… Definitely look it up afterwards – even as someone who thought she understood what happened, I was surprised by a lot of the deeper meanings I missed.
Read the book and delighted in it—but I enjoy pretty lighthearted fluff in my spare time!! The movie was lovely too, and visually so sumptuous. I didn’t know about the deeper meaning— would you be able to say more (or maybe Grace could dive into this?) I’d love to look it up but don’t know what to look up 🙂
New reader here!!
Have a great weekend,
For anyone who already knows how to play mahjong, skip down to the “spoilers below” section, otherwise read the whole thing!
Hope you ended up enjoying the movie!
I LOVED it! Thanks Grace, much appreciated!
YES that drove me crazy as well! Going to have to look that up!
