Weekend Reading | 8.31.19.

happy (long) weekend! It was a busy week over here so I’m striving for the least busy weekend possible… I’m a little tired! Yesterday I finished up the new Lisa Jewell book – it’s so dark. I don’t know if you’ve read her other books (I still think about Then She Was Gone, so dark!!!) but I love her as an author. Her books are always very smartly written and quite dark if you like a thriller. It’s definitely worth the pre-order! I also color coded my bookshelf. It’s the little things! Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great – enjoy… and happy Labor Day! xo

OMG The Goldfinch trailer looks SO good! I’m really excited for this one – it’s out 9/13.

This giraffe print dress is so chic and looks way more expensive than $88.

Is it weird to kind of want one of these Dairy Queen candles? The scents sound so good!

Why do we doubt our intuition?

Is this the shirt version of the #amazonnightgown? Ordered one and will report back!

Ahhhh… scalp massage.

Did you see Everlane’s new underwear line? I’m loving this bra.

Loved these economical grocery shopping/cooking tips.

Blair’s photos from Naples are an absolute dream – WOW!

I just got this ($28!!) spot print dress and love it so much. This brand is absolutely killing it!

Benny Drama is my everything.

My absolute favorite cleanser: let it really melt into your skin to take all your makeup off.

WHOA – this PVC pipe wall DIY is insanely cool.

The best new beauty products.

It’s hard to think about sweater weather right now but I want this.

Love this pink look on Jenn!

Such a pretty wrap dress (plus version here) at a great price.

Married for 70 years and “still working on it!” Love.

This chocolate zucchini bread sounds good!

Crushing on this pretty green midi.

Something I always wonder: is sparkling water bad for you?

This eye cream is my obsession right now: I swear my fine lines are less noticeable!

Nine yummy work lunch ideas.

Such a good post from Liz about finding your sense of self.

Another fun Amazon find: this cozy hoodie!

Read this if you’re considering retinol!

This midi skirt is very cute – I’m thinking about the leopard one!

    Love that midi skirt! The leopard would be great for fall but Iโ€™m always drawn to the snakeskin. Can someone have too much snakeskin? (Donโ€™t answer that!)

    • Haha! It’s all a matter of personal taste! (I’ll never be able to have enough emerald green, personally!)

    Hey Grace! Just an odd request – and probably quite a bit of bother, but just in case…. am in UK and Sephora did a thing last year where they won’t take you to the product page (as you can no longer get it shipped here) so all Sephora links redirect to the french homepage. It means I can never tell which products you’re linking to when you post a Sephora link and I’d love to see what you’re using. Maybe you could add a footnote of the product names?

    • I’m so sorry – I will think about it. That kinda would change the look and feel of these posts. You can always ask me what they are.

    This is a bit random but how do you get the most out of your product containers? Do you use those mini spatula things? I feel like I’m leaving weeks worth of Dr Bader’s in the bottle ๐Ÿ™ Thank you in advance!
