Good Reads: 24 October 2014

Hurray for the weekend!

I've had the lamest crick in my neck all week, so this weekend I'm breaking my el-cheapo ways and going for a very-needed massage tomorrow. Doughnuts are also on the weekend agenda (because shouldn't they always be?), as well as a crisp walk in the park and plenty of time offline

What are you kids up to?

Like, actually everything from this collection is beautiful.

Love the simplicity of this Honeycomb Studio apothecary bottle

5 ways to disconnect and rest this weekend. 

Melanie Griffith grew up living with a lion

Got my eye on this sculpted bangle from CACTO, a Madrid-based jewelry shop that features the work of local designers and artisans. 

As I get older, I'm beginning to appreciate and pine for the finer things in life more and more – like a good pair of sheets. Definitely want to try some sheets from this bedding line. 

My friend Lisa is going on her 100th first date this weekend. (!)

Love this illustrated map of Shakespeare & Co. in Paris

Added some new finds to my Greatly shop! This desert print, these earrings, and this notebook

The campaign for a much-needed Joan Didion documentary

And on that note, a beautiful Joan Didion quote: "[New York] was instead an infinitely romantic notion, the mysterious nexus of all love and money and power, the shining and perishable dream itself. To think of 'living' there was to reduce the miraculous to the mundane; one does not 'live' at Xanadu."

Over the moon for these new Ben Fiess vases.

Have admired Sezane for a few years now, so am so excited to see their brilliant new collaboration with Madewell

So this is why the Emirates flight attendants always look so polished. (Includes some great in-flight hydration tips.)

The Georgia pendant from Atlanta jewelry designer Crafts and Love is on my wishlist. 

And a few more things:

affordable, eco-friendly fashion + $200 gift card giveaway (double !)
