Weekend Reading | 9.08.2018

And it’s the weekend! What are you up to? I have a few fun plans. A morning shoot for a last minute project today, brunch with Jenn after that, yoga class(es), a party tonight… and my favorite: No Plans Sunday. Maybe I should make #noplanssunday into a hashtag where we all share our blissfully boring days. It would literally be the most anti climatic hashtag ever… Also, having a day without plans is my absolute favorite thing in the world: waking up early (or late) with nothing you absolutely need to do. Maybe it’s a movie day. In addition, it could be a museum day… the day is your oyster, whatever you please. πŸ˜‰ But I digress: have a very happy weekend! xoxo

Yay for September horoscopes.

Very excited to see J.Crew on Amazon!

Holy moly – this DIY bucket bag tutorial is totally brilliant and cool.

20 movies every woman should watch in her thirties.

The most statement making dress ever. Also, for under $100 – I love.

If you loved the Royal We then you will love this book list!

I definitely need this cozy long cardigan.

How to crave more veggies.

Fab brow advice.

I probably need this grandpa blazer! Love the grey.

Couldn’t be more excited for Jacey!

Pretty little leopard flats.

Really related to Jen’s post about alone time. Also, it made me think about the quality of alone time (i.e. reading a book outside vs. watching TV, etc.) Must get outside and read while it’s still warm.

How to stand out as an influencer.

Love this pretty wrap dress.

I don’t love pumpkin spice lattes (does that make me the Grinch of Fall?) but if you do, here’s a cheaper, healthier version.

I am getting excited for sweater weather and ordered this cozy turtleneck.

Oh, the struggles of body image. This piece is so real.

The women who are making fashion week more body positive.

Finally ordered one of BaubleBar’s monogrammed phone cases this week. LOVE the lavender.

I want to steal Meghan Markle’s look! This one is so chic.

Looks like Chloe, for $48.

Eek – 9 beauty ingredients that are banned overseas but okay in the US?

Tips for hosting overnight guests.

I can’t stop buying cute sunnies and these are just too fun. Also, I love the rosy flecks and the shape.

The best bags for Fall.

A cute round bag, at a fantastic price.

The drugstore beauty products to try now!

How to make your investment pieces last forever.

To all who love my Staud bucket bag: I found a $50 dupe.

How to get back on track!

Such a gorgeous “night out” top.

Loved this thoughtful post from Jess. Also, I think this is a perfect example of blogger sponsored content done right!

Loved Kat’s list of self help booksΒ (and frankly I think I need a bit more self help in my life)!

Very very into these smoking flats – especially the sequined ones!

Do you really need toner?

This shoot is just too good!!!!

  1. I love days without plans too! It’s already the evening of Saturday here in Hong Kong, and I basically slept in… until 4pm! It might be a ‘waste’ of a day to some but it was much-needed sleep for me. πŸ™‚

    Have a lovely weekend! ❀️

  2. I have been trying to schedule one day a week of “no work or plans.” Usually, that’s Sunday. I’ll read the newspaper (yep – an actual print newspaper but by “read” I mean skim and then look at inserts. lol) while watching the news (I have a problem) and drinking coffee. Then there’s a nap with the cat. And maybe the pool. But super relaxed.

    It gets a tad difficult once football is back since I need to be at home games. So, I will at least try to have half of the day Saturday without any plans. Again, hard because I try to record podcast episodes on Saturday. I recognize how important it is though.

    I want ALL of the cozy long cardigans but in Florida that’s a tad ridiculous. So, those will have to wait until I make my next move. πŸ˜‰

    Fun round up as always. I want to try that L’OrΓ©al, unbelieva brow. I was wondering when someone was coming out with something waterproof! About time. Also, just picked up the Dr. Jart moisturizer toner. Never seen anything quite like it. Very nice! The movie list is great too,and women of any age, really. And I am totally on board with the #noplanssunday. I try to not plan too much if anything, as Sunday it technically my Saturday. I usually need to rest after a busy work week!

    Weekends for me are for some relaxations, reading books and catching up on my favourite shows. I need to reduce my stress level. No one is indispensable you know??

  10. Thanks for including my post in this roundup. You raised such an interesting aspect — the quality of alone time matters, too. Been giving that more thought lately. xo

  11. Amen to #noplanssunday (literally my favourite thing to do on a Sunday). I am all alone this weekend so I plan on visiting a gallery, catching up on a stack of unread magazines and a new book, and watching 90s romcoms all weekend. Heaven!

    Have the best week!
