Weekly Brief No. 4: Sunday Reads

November 5, 2017

Cheers to another weekend that's come and gone too quickly. It feels weird that Christmas is basically here. On one hand, there's so much to be excited for, but on the other hand, I feel like I keep forgetting to savor every day. But hey, I'm working on it. Sundays are all about rejuvenation, so I hope my finds below help you rest and relax before another crazy Monday arrives. At least we all gained an extra hour of sleep thanks to daylight savings! So grab a glass of wine and get cozy. I hope you're evening is charming and restorative.

Wine and Dine: Um... get the app Seated RIGHT NOW! My friend John told me about it, and I'm so psyched to use it. If you live in or near a major city such as NYC, LA, ATL, etc, you can use this app to make reservations at restaurants, and you get a gift card to Amazon or Uber credit after your meal!

Beauty Book: Kylie Cosmetics are going to be available in 7 TopShops from Nov. 20 - Dec. 20!! If you live in or near NYC, ATL, LA, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami or Houston, run thee to thy nearest TopShop! I'm excited to be able to test out these products. I'm not a fan of buying makeup online before I know how it looks on me.

Emotional Pick-Me-Up: I don’t want to hide the truth from you guys; I’be been really upset and stressed out for the past 2 weeks, for various reasons. In an effort not to sound like a whiny bitch, I'll spare you the details. Whenever I feel super down, I jump on Google and search for coping mechanisms. There's something in me that compels me to search for a solution... always. During this Goggle session, I stumbled across this article: You’ll Be Happier If You Let Yourself Feel Bad By Cody Delistraty. It was a great reminder of what my favorite person ever (aka Marie Forleo) always says, "make isness your business and stop resisting!" I’m hoping that the more I practice embracing my feelings and not judging myself for being upset, the stronger I’ll become. 

Wanderlust: Wanna feel like you’re in Europe without the hefty flight price? Here are 5 U.S. cities that look like they belong in Europe.

Currently Loving: The freaking adorable beret trend. I don’t GAF if it’s basic.

Decor I Adore: Um… Ikea’s latest holiday collection has some amazing pieces!

Smart Money Tip of the Week (Because you’re too good to be a broke bitch): I am soooo doing this zero-dollar spend day challenge! I plan to start setting one day a week aside for this. Hopefully I’ll get to multiple days a week soon. Think about the savings! 

Until next time loves!
