Weekend Reading, 6.12.21

Happy weekend! I’m excited for the weekend. I spent the morning reading and then went to the farmer’s market with my mom. Two of my best friends here are moving back to New York (I’m only slightly devastated… I just got here!) and we are toasting them tonight with a party at my friend’s house on Sullivan’s Island. Besides that I am probably just going to read a lot, get caught up on work and chores, and do a bit of lounging at the pool. I’ve been on a reading KICK which feels good after being in such a rut earlier in the year. Have a wonderful weekend!

I’m going bananas (maybe literally?) over this home collab.

How pretty is this bouclé sweater tank? Such a good layering piece.

Deeply curious about the Stanley Cups after reading this post. Anyone have one? I don’t feel like this is something I need but all the hype makes me think I’m missing something!

Looove this floaty midi dress.

A great explainer on the meaning of Juneteenth.

I really liked this essay from Liz and could relate to it as I feel like I may have gone a bit too hard socially and with work the past couple weeks: More is not Always More. 

Healthy recipes to make this week.

This body scrub is incredible

Zapped the bumps on the backs of my arms in a few weeks.

    Grace thank you as always for the links! It’s a very fun Saturday ritual for me as I love to peruse and catch up on all of the blog content from the week that I sometimes don’t have time to read in real time! Thank you for sharing! Also your dress in the photo above is fabulous! You look oh so lovely!

  2. The breakfast nachos is a drop box link to some vids of you. Just an FYI!

    Lol! when you said Stanley Cup I legit thought you were getting into hockey and the upcoming semifinals.

    But when I realized you meant the thermos I also can vouch for that! I’ve had classic-neverleak-travel-mug for 10+years and it has been dropped, kicked, forgotten and returned and it still keeps things hot (or cold) all day!

    The smocked tank link doesn’t seem to work. Is it just me? Thanks. Love your blog

    For some reason the link to the smocked tank just takes me to my (empty) Amazon shopping cart. I tried it through my feed reader (Feedly) and going directly to your site though the Safari Browser.

    I have two Stanley cups and prefer them to my Yeti tumbler because of the handle and larger size. It’s just an insulated cup, but it is a good one. I bought two last week for pregnant friends (no kids myself but I hear they are great for nursing moms) and two more for me because I loved the new colors and I use one every day.

  8. Yes to the KP Bump Eraser! I’m on my second tube. It is great for the arms but I’ll even use a bit on my elbows and knees.
