ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR | FIVE | SIX | SEVEN | EIGHT | NINE | TEN | ELEVEN | TWELVE | THIRTEEN 

is it just me, or has this been the LONGEST week ever? i don’t know what it is about coming back to work after a vacation (apparently, even 2 days out of the city sours me on it), but on tuesday, i already wanted it to be friday. and now that it’s thursday, well, let’s just say i realllly want it to be friday. thankfully, my new job offers summer fridays, otherwise known as the world’s greatest summer invention. i’m pretty summer fridays are unique to new yorkers, offering a chance for the rich folk to get a head start on the trek out to their hamptons home each weekend. i don’t have a hamptons home and likely never will, but you can bet i still love getting out at 1pm every friday. though actually, i’ve had so much work to do that i’ve been leaving closer to 4pm. but STILL, there is a difference between leaving at 4 and leaving at 7 or 8, and that difference smells like sunshine and feels like heaven.

since this week has been a rather stressful one, i’ve been doing a whole lot of imaginary online shopping (and i may or may not have actually ordered that bobbi brown beach body oil, because, well, sometimes a girl needs body oil). you  might notice i switched up the font a bit for this week’s shopping list. how do we like the script? it’s kind of pretty, right? feels a bit more summery, i think.

i’ve got a biiig crush on these smokin’ hot kate spade studs – how cute are they?! – and also on these ear cuffs from baublebar. and let’s talk about that mara hoffman jumpsuit, which is only as good as the somewhat-matching mara hoffman beach towel (from madewell, oddly). mara always does the coolest prints, and these two pieces are no exception.

happy shopping, folks! ps: just 2 days ’til it’s officially summer.

b0616bee75419d571d68aa5d0e3bdd91can we talk about the weather this week? it was the worst, no? thank god for keratin treatments – without it, i would have grown a second head of hair based on frizz alone in the rain these past few days. thankfully, the sun is FINALLY coming out, ever to slightly, or at least, trying to (valiant effort, sun), and i couldn’t be happier. two friends and i are headed down the jersey shore to a tiny little beach known as wildwood, just north of cape may, and i can’t wait to spend a weekend in the sunshine (the weather has promised to behave) reading YA books on my kindle and eating lots of ice cream.

in other news, there have been lots of things i’ve loved on the internetz lately.

i’m a huge fan of lennon and maisy, the sister duo from nashville. their latest, a cover of edward sharpe’s “that’s what’s up” is oh so good. on repeat.

traditional jewish dishes are experiencing a renaissance. chosen people, chosen food. i couldn’t be happier. knishes FTW! 

not all men. a must read from slate. this is from a few weeks back, but it’s still a worthy read for today.

i can’t wait to attend a pop up shabbat dinner. jewish people!! maybe even SINGLE JEWISH PEOPLE. and good food. i’m sorry, what could be better?

when did we all get so busy? oh god, i am 100% guilty of overbooking, and for bad reasons. note to self: CHILL THE EFF OUT.

taking vacation might make you better at your job. second note to self: plan that tulum trip.

making flights better, one smart solution at a time. ahh, if only flying was a more enjoyable experience.

tavi forever. tavi gevinson, whose blog i started reading when she was thirteen, is EIGHTEEN years old. 18! this piece on her is wonderful, and so well-written.

cheryl strayed’s tiny beautiful things is one of the best books i’ve read this year. nay, one of the best books i’ve read, ever. i loved this piece about it on the cut.

what do you have planned for this weekend?
