How was your week? I’ve been in a funk for the past week or two which isn’t fun but I’m trying to just take it easy, get all my work done, and escape with a good book. I did get my hair cut and highlighted and my nails done and that definitely made me feel a little better. (We’re phase 3 in New York, be safe, wear a mask, follow your city’s guidelines!) Both felt really safe… partitions, everyone wearing masks, operating at a lower capacity so no one else was really around me.
This weekend, I have a wedding! A Zoom wedding, that is. My cousin is getting married in Connecticut. Our family decided the responsible thing would be to do a Zoom ceremony today (so that they could keep their original wedding date) and then a party in September (fingers crossed). It’s def bittersweet as originally my parents were going to come north for two weeks for the wedding and then some time on Cape Cod and I was going to join them for part of that but obviously none of that is happening! Anyway, I don’t have much planned this weekend! I have a friend coming over for a “crafternoon” on Sunday, and drinks with Becca tonight, and that’s about it. LOTS of reading time. (On that note: pre-order The Boys Club, out 8/4! It was excellent.)

Loved seeing Ayana on Cup of Jo – her week of outfits is so good!!!!
Loved this article about Ellevest, which is funny and timely as I just signed up and created a portfolio earlier in the week. (Sidebar: can’t recommend our podcast episode on investing with their founder, Sallie Krawcheck enough!)
