Weekend Reading




We've all heard the term "trophy wife," but what about trophy husbands?  I love this article from Fortune.

Jordyn over at Southern Stylista recommended this Youtube video to me, and it was so cute that I may have cried... (PS - I usually hate videos, but this one is right at a minute and so worth the watch!)

If you enjoyed my "Barre vs. Ballet" article, you may enjoy this post about yoga vs. pilates.

I've been mooning after this skirt for a while, but I wasn't sure how I would wear it.  I really love the way that Crissy styled it.

I absolutely love this post about staying creative in a Pinterest obsessed world!

I am really in love with this outfit post on Gracefullee Made!  Thinking about snagging this up for myself.

Four years ago today, I was diagnosed with cancer.  Read my story here. 

I recently used this hair tutorial, and I received so many compliments!  Definitely worth checking out.

Remember my post about evian facial spray?  evian is currently doing a giveaway where 20 people will win 2 bottles of the facial spray!  Enter here. 

Giveaway Round-up:  $100 J.Crew Gift card | Two Gerard Yosca bracelets | $120 JORD Gift Certificate | 2 bottles of evian facial spray |


My favorite picks this week:
(PS - Can y'all believe it's already time to start shopping for a new bikini?!)

    1. I love it! My hair is a little past shoulder length, and I was a little worried how it would turn out... but I LOVED it! You never know until you try :) Hope your week is off to a great start! Xo

  2. I'm telling you, that video (especially the little rhino & the sheep trotting beside each other) it gets me every single time lol.
    And the article about trophy husbands was such a good read :)

  21. I know what you mean about it almost being tome to snag a new swimsuit! I love all of your picks and links...the idea of a trophy husband is super interesting because trophy wife is a form of objectification of a woman and the idea that objectification goes both ways is quite progressive.
    Have a lovely week!
