Weekend Round-Up


Happy Weekend! I haven’t done a round-up of my favorite reads and links in a really long time so fore warning, a few of these might be a few weeks(/months) old. Enjoy! xo

  1. When I read the quote above, it was as if it was written for me. It was exactly what I needed to hear, at exactly the right time. Thank you, Liz!
  2. My friend Mackenzie’s online shop, Design Darling, turns THREE this weekend! I know I’ve rambled on and on about this before, but I’m just so fortunate to have so many kick-ass girlfriends. So proud of all that Mackenzie has accomplished in the last few years! PS- She’s celebrating by giving you 20% off all weekend long… Use code CANTSTOPWONTSTOP at checkout!
    1. I have this passport cover and love it!
    2. Can’t get enough of her white & blue vases and lamps — one / two / three
    3. Obsessed with these pillows — one / two / three
  4. This was one of my favorite outfits as of late. Just feels so fresh!
  5. I am so happy for Grace and the launch of her new website! After 4+ years of blogging, I’m doing my first-ever custom site design this year (my current one is just a template) and I couldn’t be more excited. Hoping it will be live by June!
  6. I absolutely loved Meghan’s post about her 4-year New York anniversary!
  7. I always love hearing about workouts that really make a difference! I am really loyal to SoulCycle and hot yoga, but I’m in desperate need of adding a toning class to the mix. I took a few barre classes last spring (or maybe the spring before..) and saw results instantly. I need to get back into the groove of mixing those into my routine! Check out Liz’s post on The Dailey Method, a barre class in Chicago.
  8. You know I’m a sucker for personalized stationery — So in love with this set and this set from Design Darling.
  9. Seven (Semi) Surprising Things to Help Reduce Stress
  10. These photos of New York are absolutely stunning!
  11. 15 Ways to Live a Year Without Regrets
  12. This is SO TRUE! 20 Things Only People Who Love Going Out to Eat Understand
  13. I enjoyed this essay about a preppy girl finding her way in NYC! I completely relate to a lot of the sentiments about morphing a preppy style into looks that work in New York.
  14. I was definitely chuckling throughout this one… It’s so, so, so accurate.
  15. The Seven Best Exercises for Women Who Wear Heels

See you Monday!

    I’ve been thinking about taking a barre class… Which studio did you go to? I live in Manhattan and there seems to be a few choices, but I’m not sure how to choose!

      I’ve only taken barre at Exhale Spa, it’s their Core Fusion Barre class. I’ve heard great things about Pure Barre, too. That’s next on my list!

    I tried a barre class two weeks ago and was sore for days! I guess that means it works!
