Weekend Reading | 8.10.19.

podcast launch

happy weekend from Cape Cod (heading back to Brooklyn around lunchtime!) It was so nice to have a full week on the Cape with my parents + sisters + their families. So much time with my nieces and nephews! After 7 jam-packed days, I am excited to introvert HARD tonight. Planning on ordering my fav sushi + putting on a bunch of old movies – nothing sounds better than that right now! In other news, make sure you check out this month’s reading list – it was a really good month of reading and one of my fav reading lists to date. AND, we announced our Fall tour dates for the podcast… would love to see you at a show this October!!!

Weekend Reading

Merritt put together a really thoughtful guide to dressing for your body type.

Have been testing this eye cream and really notice a difference w/fine lines.

YUM, need to make this: the best dairy-free pesto!

Wow – Keanu Reeves has quite the beauty routine. ($1700 serum, anyone!?)

I probably need this personalized hair clip. Should I get “Tyrion?”

Still not over Ulla Johnson’s stunning home.

Drooling over this splurge of a leopard dress. (And happy to see Rebecca Taylor has extended their size range a tiny bit.)

Everything that’s in season this month… and how to eat it.

On setting goals.

Madewell continues to kill the affordable earrings game.

Is this going to be Fall’s new “it bag?”

What a cute button front midi dress!

What happened when one writer stopped wearing makeup.

Three thoughts that could be holding you back.

100% need this green box bag (it’s only $52 and comes in yellow as well).

Great advice for when you start a new job.

Such a cute polka dot cami.

I want to make this DIY knot pillow!

On attachment styles. This is interesting especially if you’ve read the book Attached!

Love these simple, beachy hoops.

Are you decisive?

It’s really hard to even think about fall clothing right now but I’m loving this $89 plaid blazer.

How to be more productive, according to the enneagram.

Yoga poses that help with burnout.

Love this $13 padded headband.. such a good find!

Margot Robbie makes me want to wear PJs to my next event!

I love this sweet little green mini dress.

  1. I love introverted weekends in! I can only imagine how tiring seven days of being switch on continuously must feel! Thanks for the links. 🙂

    Love the list as usual! I made a version of the knot pillow using opaque tights as the fabric. It was easy and fun. My sister still uses it three years later.

    So many things to like in this list: the midi dress, the green dress, the camisole and definitely the green handbag! I hate to break it to you, but the clips have a maximum of 5 characters on them. Enjoy your movie marathon!

    Lots of fun things here! The eye cream looks very intriguing . I always make my pesto dairy free. It’s nice to have the option. I like to use fresh herbs, but the bunches are so big, I wind up making pesto or chimichurri so I don’t waste them. Right now I have some pesto in my fridge made from parsley, garlic, olive oil and pumpkin seeds.

    I love Tatcha and will be adding their eye cream to my Sephora cart soon. Thanks for the links and the recommendations! Though my wallet is not liking it…

    The attachment styles article is so up my street- anything like that is so fascinating to me! Pretty sure I’m a wave… and now the research (rabbit hole) will commence….

    Thank you for being such a great personal shopper! I sent my daughter the polka dot top and the midi dress, and she loved them both! ❤️
