Weekend Reading | 6.22.19.

hi from Boston!

I’m heading back to New York today after a whirlwind couple of days here for our live show. It’s going to be a short week in the city… I get home today and then on Wednesday I leave for Charleston + Nashville for our shows down there. So excited for that – it will be so nice to have some time with my parents in Charleston and then to explore Nashville over the weekend… I’ve actually never been! But lots to do on the work front before I go. Without further ado, this week’s links!

Hope you enjoy.

Healthy alternatives to soda!

Love seeing Net-a-Porter highlight sustainable brands.

Need to try these bedtime yoga moves for better sleep.

I know I can’t stop talking about them (sorry) BUT these bronzing drops are just the GREATEST. I mix in a drop or two with my moisturizer and skip foundation.

Wow – how amazing is this dining room makeover!?

Still not a big sneakers person but everyone is talking about these and I LOVE THEM.

Liz did a really great beach waves hair tutorial.

Need this Pride hoodie in my life!

Always a hot topic: on making new friends as an adult!

Crushing on this minty bucket bag. Love the tortoise strap.

Interesting: what causes certain food cravings.

Very into this silky top. Especially in the navy.

How bad is it to fall asleep in front of the TV every night?

This gorgeous maxi is amazing and available up to a size 4X!

I love an Aperol Spritz so was excited about this roundup of other fun, delicious summer spritzes!

Alllll the pretty headbands, please!

A fun, swingy stripe top. (Plus size here!) Would be so cute w/white jeans or tucked into cutoffs.

Loved reading Blair’s updated Q&A.

    Grace, your recommendations are always the best! Agree so much on the D-Bronzi drops. I still use a little foundation but honestly, need half as much. They mix so well with other products. I’ve used them with primer, sunscreen and essence. Glowing!

    So interested in those bronzer drops! Do you mix with your Dr. Bader? It makes me nervous to mix anything with my beloved Dr. Bader!

    I’ve been drinking margs “Jennifer Aniston style” since the 90s. I live in Texas and that’s how all of my friends moms drank them and they taste so good and clean that way. The sugar in mixed drinks give me a stomach ache so it’s the only way I ever drink a marg – recommend1
