Happy weekend! This was a busy but fun week. My boyfriend was here, we launched the new site (THANK YOU for the kind words and encouragement), I threw a fun cocktail hour with Tanya Taylor, and we are now ready for next week’s big stationery launch. Last night I just hid away… I finished Meant to Be Mine (so cute – my full review is in The Library) and started a new thriller TV series (The Perfect Mother on Netflix, seems promising so far)! Lots of fun links this week, I hope that you enjoy them! xx

Another really gorgeous summer sun dress.
The latest (ick!) dating trend: roaching!

Just saw the new library portion of the blog. I love it! Your reviews are such a great snapshot of each book. Thanks for creating.
That makes me so happy that you are loving it!
ah! That money + emotions one is so good. I have one particular financial situation that has an incredibly simple fix logistically but could have massive emotional repercussions, so I’m not ready to take it yet or maybe ever.
Right? I felt the same way.
I feel like it’s important to note that the SATC/And Just Like That update said the CHARACTER of Samantha was coming back, not Kim Cattrall specifically. For all we know HBO might try to pull a fast one on us and slot Jean Smart into the role, who knows at this point, lol.
HAHA You are totally right. I just got so excited, I miss her!
God, I wouldn’t mind Jean Smart (ideally as a different character) making a cameo… can’t get enough of her on Hacks!
Love the “going out book” article! I do feel inexplicably sexy when dining alone and reading a book, but I prefer lunchtime.
I love that!
That finance article was AMAZING. Thanks for sharing it. My husband and I invested in a financial advisor because money stresses both of us out, but after reading this, a financial therapist is what we actually need. Had no idea this existed!
I loved that article so much!
