Weekend Reading


I’m the first to admit that I always #eyeroll every time one of the Kardasian-Jenner’s posts an Insta Story or Snap of one of their lavish flower arrangements. That money could be put to better use via a charity…just saying.

Are you following me on Pinterest yet? I’ve been pinning tons of content to my “lips are moving” board, as well as my “healthy food” board (both my faves).

Julia from Lemon Stripes did a great Acupuncture 101 post; acupuncture has done wonders for my back and is actually (shockingly) covered by my health insurance!

These new DIY rubber face masks make such a great gift (or fun for a girls night).

If you cry as much as I do every time that ASPCA commercial comes on TV then this post on 6 easy ways to help homeless animals should be a must-read for you.

Leandra from Man Repeller watched Fifty Shades Freed so we don’t have to. Spoilers ahead but if you don’t plan on seeing the movie, this will satisfy any questions that you have, haha.

Here, my friend Amy Nadine (celeb makeup artist) shares her story about infertility and adopting two beautiful boys. Get the tissues out for this one, guys.

Speaking of kids, my friend Andrea wrote this great piece for the Coveteur about how leaving New York made her a better mom <3

This is a great Q&A about moving on from adult friendship breakups– they can be so rough!

These 50 Tony Robbins’ quotes are pretty inspiring. My favorite: “progress = happiness.”

What I bought on Amazon:


My New Mattress = My Best Sleep Ever

VIDEO: My West Hollywood Apartment Tour

This video is looooong overdue but I’m glad it’s finally here!  You probably saw the photo tour of my apartment (and I hope you also saw the green dresser DIY), but I always feel like things really pop in video form; plus you also get to hear my ramblings about certain pieces and why it was chosen, haha.

Make sure to also subscribe to my channel so you don’t miss any new videos as soon as they come out (I posted this one a few days ago)

Links for every product featured can be found HERE.

Oh, and by the way, I’ve made a few updates to my place since this video was shot!  Next week I have two posts that show my new bed (it’s THE BEST- seriously), as well as my collab with a professional organizer! Yep, that’s right, what my bathroom/product closet looks like in this video is no more 🙂 It’s honestly and truly amazing so make sure to check back to see the changes…
