Good Reads: 8 April 2016

As much as I hate to say it, I'm afraid that the delays between blog posts will be regular from this day forward. Having just started a new job, I just don't always have the time to update as much as I'd like – though know that you are most certainly always on my mind, you lovely blog reader you.

All of that being said, this blog is going nowhere and I'm super excited to bring you both some home decor thoughts and something from the lovely Megan Huntz in the coming days. You know Megan – she's the glorious, Atlanta-based designer who is as talented of an artist as she is charming of a gal. Yep, that's the one.

Until then, I've included a few favorite reads of late along with new submissions to the independent design directory.

Happy weekending, all! We've certainly earned it.

Empire State Building | Second Floor Flat

these clean, good-smelling, and (wait for it) effective cleaning products are rocking my apartment/world lately. (the all-purpose tea tree is a favorite.)

have you guys heard about thrive market? i might give it a try.

and speaking of good smelling things, this recently came into my life along with a palo alto bundle. both have been game-changing.

full on, crazy-person level obsessed with "the people vs. o.j. simpson" after finally giving in and watching it. who's with me?

dalmation jasper and pink pearls? you had me at "dalmation".

was so thrilled to share a #lessonimalwayslearning on girl gift gather recently. (thanks for having me, gals!)

bernie and hill will debate within half a mile of my apartment next week! currently taking tips from that charming little bird on how to attend said debate.

gorgeous handmade shoes.

on my must-read article list.

obsessed with the whole vibe of this new online shop from solange.

(finally) reading some nora ephron after (finally) reading the vacationers. now that i'm back on a commute after working from home, i'm going through my books at lightning speed. any recommendations?

loving this new organic skincare line.

shopping in tokyo with david sedaris. (lolz for real)

looking for some new smoothie ideas outside of the whole "spinach-strawberry-banana" thing. anyone have a go-to recipe or pairing they'd recommend?

boarded the glove shoe train, and i'm oh-so-happy that i did.

my mom recently saw this documentary and recommended it – sounds like such a crazy story.

really, really liking all the things on the lovely waiting for saturday shop.
