Weekend Reading 4.6.24

Hello and happy Saturday! Tonight we are going to a Dynasty-themed 80’s black tie birthday party (planning to wear this!) and I am pretty excited for that. It was a busy week! I’ve had my whole immediate family here since last Saturday, plus lots of work preparing for the Sephora Sale (yesterday – check out my big guide!) and the Shopbop Sale (Monday!). On Monday, we fly to Dallas to see the eclipse. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great. Enjoy the your weekend.

    Highly recommend the PBS app vs doing it through Amazon unless you need to do it through Amazon for contractual reasons.
    PBS app will air things all at once(Funny Woman) vs weekly release
    It’s great for finding some not so well known shows(Check please)
    and Mrs Harris goes to Paris, etc

    Meant to ask you if you follow Jerimiah Towers Substack as well? Seems right up your ally

    Hi Grace, This was such a fun round up! I think people make pizza out to be harder than it is. I mean of course if you have wood fire or an outdoor pizza oven that’s a bit of a game changer, besides that pizza is pretty easy. One of the best compliments I ever received was from a friend who requested my pizza when he woke up after surgery, lol. I’ve had good luck at home using a cast iron skillet ( you can make the dough thick or thin) or the back of a sheet pan and I also have an enamel pizza pan which makes really crisp thin crust. The trick is to turn your oven up as high as it will go. Good pizza= very hot oven. Maybe you can do a post about it? Pizza party? Love all the cute spring dresses and colors. I ordered the cute Sorel wedges in black from the Glamour round up. I have a pair in a tan/olive color way and they are so comfortable and cute! That dynasty party sounds so fun! What a great idea and love the dress you picked to wear.
