Weekend Reading 8.19.23

I hope you had a wonderful week. Mine was a mixed bag (horrible headache at the beginning but then it got a lot better!). This weekend I am going to be working (I have a shoot today and a bunch of brand deadlines to finish up), but I also have some fun things planned. Trying a new restaurant with friends tonight and maybe seeing Barbie for a second time tomorrow. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great. Enjoy! PS – we finally have a Faherty code again! Just a couple days left to use it: GRACEA20 for 20% off.

    Fun, random fact about Sallie K, she loves Melvin’s burgers and gets one almost every time she is home in Charleston:)
