Weekend Moments | Nº36

    Oh, hello Monday – you’re back so soon…

    This weekend I learned a couple of things. 1) It’s official: I love sleep more than I ever have before and go to bed on average at 9:30/10pm on weekends – am I a grandma!? 2) Belgian waffles are extremely easy to make (and over-eat!) / did you see how delicious those things looked on my snapchat? I’m on a try-new-things kick with recipes, work outs, and revisiting hobbies that I haven’t spent time on recently. Ever go through phases like that? I’m accepting healthy recipe suggestions too if you have any favorites right now.

    I spent a decent amount of time out of our apartment, which was nice. As you know, we are expecting a new couch and it was supposed to arrive last week but is a tiny bit delayed. We sold our couch mid last week, so our living room is currently in fort format. We love a good Netflix night in, so it’s kind of cramping our style, but I’m excited to reveal how everything turns out in there very soon!

    A few things I’m currently loving right now: Club Monaco’s new collaboration with Caroline Constas (who has been all over the place; Vogue, Man Repeller, Net A Porter) – in love with all of her collection. // Newly opened: The Line in the Hamptons. Can I move in? // My little sister (who is a complete and utterly obsessed bookworm), sent me this book as a surprise and I’m loving it. I was in need of a creative boost, so this has already brought some sunshine into my life! If you know of any amazing books please send them along – I’m starting to stock up on summer reads. // and lastly, on a completely random note: I’ve developed an obsession with pineapples lately – in the past month I’ve brought home these salt + pepper shakers, this J.Crew Bikini, this brass tumbler, and now I NEED this. 🙂

    I hope you have a great week! xx

      Books to read:
      If you want to cry so hard you can’t read the page and be completely and utterly broken, read A Little Life. It took me about 75 pages to get into, and then I literally couldn’t put it down. It was amazing, awful, brutal, beautiful, and really moving.
      For a fun, trashy but not poorly written, gossipy, dripping in money and name-brand dropping, romp, I liked Crazy Rich Asians.
      For an east coast, preppy, family read I recommend The Big House by George Colt–it’s non fiction about a family home that they have to sell and I loved it.
      For something that made me laugh out loud, I loved The Rosie Project (Graeme Simsion) or I was Told There’d Be Cake (Sloane Crosley).

      Happy reading!

      • Thanks so much, love! I’ve actually heard of a couple of these so will check them out – The Rosie Project was recommended to me, gotta get on that one! Thanks again for saying hi! I hope you have a great week. 🙂

        I’m reading “You Are A Badass” right now and am empowered by it! I am normally turned off by self help books, but this one is incredible.

        • Ow, thanks Mere! I live for self-help books haha! I’ll check it out 🙂

    • That book your sister sent looks like something I need as well! Definitely looking into it! Can’t wait to see the new couch and home updates 🙂

      • My sister reads dozens of books a month, it’s crazy! I need to get better at that, I always forget how refreshing it is to take a few out of your day and read a few chapters. Let me know if you come across any inspiring books soon, you and I have very similar taste. 🙂 xx

    • that straw mat is so cute!

    • Sounds like a wonderful weekend – I am all about going to bed early, so I am totally on your team with that one! (grandma status and loving it!) Also – Caroline Constas – my favorite!!
