Weekend Reading 7.6.24

Happy weekend. It’s a calm and relatively plans-free one over here. It feels a little funny to have the holiday off, work one day, and then have a whole weekend… it feels like an extra treat! I am having dinner with my parents tonight and my family is coming over tomorrow for a pool soak and some sunshine. That is about it. I am quite happy to have such an empty calendar!

      I would go with the Westman! The goop one is good but I personally think that the Westman Atelier is better. You won’t be mad about either purchase though.

    Hi Grace! Longtime reader, first-time commenter. I absolutely love, and look forward to, your Weekend reading lists! I appreciate all the time you put into curating links that are thoughtful and interesting, and also inspiring! The article on the house with the sunken sitting area in Mexico was AH-mazing and something I might not have stumbled upon by myself. I must live under a rock as I wasn’t familiar with Jungalow but now I’m hooked and I have you to thank! I’ve gone down the Jungalow rabbit hole and love that Justina’s style is pushing me outside of my bubble, but in the best way. I wish you a lovely rest of your weekend and a tranquil week ahead! ~Deborah
