Weekend Reading


Things finally slowed down a little bit this week… the long weekend helped with that.  The bf and I are on a movie rampage… trying to see as many of the best picture noms before the Oscars tomorrow.  I spoke on a panel for social media week, tried to new-to-me yummy restaurants (Flex Mussels and Da Andrea) had some fun meetings + coffee dates throughout the week, and finally grabbed drinks with Danny last night.  This weekend I’m planning some blog post catch-up, but mostly we are just seeing lots of friends, which will be nice.  I feel like with fashion week, job + blog stuff lately, I’ve been removed from my regular life… I miss my friends!

Here are some fave things from the week:

…relax, you’ll be more productive!

I really loved Man Repeller‘s thoughtful response to this article.  Is it weird that I can totally see both sides of the story?

melting disco balls – so neat!

I obsessed over this top… at only $32.00, if I were allowed to shop it would be in my closet.  So versatile + elegant.

a pretty heart manicure.

dreamy feather prints… I want to order one for my new office space!

anyone else have a girl crush on allison williams?  love how alyssa broke down how to get her look.

this post made me want to pile on the gold rings.

lusting after:  this sweater.  have wanted it since seeing the Marcus Lupfer preview pics this past Fall… so good.

I’ve been eating strictly this week, but can’t stop thinking about this.  yum.

    I had a grilled cheese for dinner last night because Dean and Deluca didn’t have the ice cream I wanted. Jerks!

    Agree with you about Leandra’s article– I can see both sides! Also love Alison Williams so thanks for including that article about her! xo

    I had the same feeling about Man Repeller’s article too. I really enjoyed reading her response and felt that she put a lot of thought into her reaction.

    As for those croutons – I JUST pinned them this morning! Definitely something that will have to be made soon :)

    Happy Weekend!

    Hmmm…this week, I plan to follow some of what you have listed in this post. One is to shop for a new top and a new sweater. I never shop when I don’t need to bt this week, shopping is my firs priority. I need new clothes. Of course, I always make it a point to be more productive with my work. And this week —alright that’s it! I was about to say I’d go on a diet…but where can I find «grilled cheese croutons» like that?
