Happy weekend. What are you up to? Mine is going to be very reading-centric, I think. I finished Lakewood by Megan Giddings last night (it’s going to haunt me – so good, but truly terrifying) and plan on reading at least one other book over the weekend… probably something light and fun to recover, perhaps The Heir Affair!! I stayed in last night with all the RAIN (this weather has been wild!) and am probably going to see my sister + her family at some point and grab (or order!) a lobster roll somewhere with Becca at some point. Otherwise, I actually have a lot of work to do. This would usually bum me out a little bit but it’s fun work. My mood board for collection #2 is due to Amazon on Monday morning – I am really excited about this! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great. XOXO
Weekend Reading 7.4.20
On Thursday I posted the best sales happening right now but I left one out! Take 25% off sitewide at Nicola Bathie (her earrings are my FAV) with code july4. Ends tomorrow at midnight. I have and love these, and bought these with the discount.
This maple vanilla cashew cream sounds SO good!
Love the caramel hue of these sunglasses.
Great piece by Jasmine Guillory: as you read anti-racist books, don’t underestimate the power of Black fiction (agree with this SO MUCH).
I absolutely must make this rainbow bead necklace! Such a good (and EASY) DIY.
These slow cooker chicken enchiladas sound amazing.
Such a good (breezy!) summer mini dress.
On comfort movies.
My fav olive oil!
Loved Liz’s roundup of summer recipes.
This is a really good “dad shirt” at a great price!
What it’s like to be Black in publishing.
I read this article about why you should tip 50% when going out to eat. (I’ve been tipping 30% including alcohol and thought that was generous?) The comments section is pretty wild and made for a Friday afternoon rabbit hole.
Love the shape of this tiny rattan bag.
Oh my goodness I looooved this colorful home tour!
V into this (long!) hoodie. Ordered it in blue!
How cool is this glass block house!?
The drop shoulder of this easy stripe tee is so good.
A beautiful essay from Roxane Gay.
I love this ($20!) beachy linen sweater.
These stretchy mesh leopard slides have been described as leggings for your feet and I’m intrigued!
Loved this summer reading list!
I received this candle as a gift and am newly addicted. It smells really, really good. Earthy and almost a little like tomato leaves and ginger.
For when you feel overwhelmed.
Small kitchen design tips.
