Weekend Reading 2.09.19

Hello! Happy February! Did January feel 1000 years long to anyone else? I always love that I get to finish off the first month of the year with my birthday, but somehow the month still manages to feel... like a total bummer if I'm being completely honest. January is usually my slow month - I typically take the month off from drinking and this year I coupled that with a Whole30 (or rather, a Whole26 because of my birthday) to help myself get back on track after the holidays, so it's also a slow month in terms of socializing. Now that it's February and better weather is in sight (or at least in my imagination), I'm looking forward to getting out a little bit more. I'm headed to Philly soon for work and am planning a stopover in NYC while I'm there to spend some much needed time with friends. It's been a minute since I left Maine, aside from a weekend trip to Vermont for my birthday, and frankly, I'm looking forward to some time away.

On my February wishlist: Still living for statement earrings like these and loving these wooden earrings too, a super romantic dress for Valentine's Day, and as always - a super cute and unique bag

Do you remember Lorena Bobbitt? Here's her real story (NYT)

Now is a great time to order from Biossance - free gift with order (it's good)! I swear by this serum and this oil, and I'm super curious about this new product

These might be the most fun pair of Vans ever (I maaaaaay have just ordered them)

Why do we pretend to love work? (NYT)

Have you tried a lash primer? I've heard great things about this one and am super curious!

Love this self-love sweatshirt! Fun fact: it's a collab with a Philly street artist!

The warehouse sale is ON! This pen set would be a sweet Galentine's gift

So I've been obsessed with bags lately? Really love this one. Or maybe it's croc? Because I'm digging these under $50 shoes

How gorgeous is this crystal candle DIY for V-day? (or any day?)

I've been wearing these acrylic hair clips non-stop lately
