vogue - The best hair dryers. I’ve been using this one for a year now and I love it. Its a touch heavier than what I was used to but it gets the job done in half the amount of time. Here is an ultra light version that they just released. Its pricey but worth it!

elle decor - Love this boy’s bedroom inspiration. Slow and steady wins the race is my motto when it comes to interior design haha (or so I tell myself as I move at a glacial pace finishing Luke and Harry’s room).

NPR - Instagram will start hiding likes as soon as next week from some US accounts. The biggest change since the transition from a chronological feed (which is never returning BTW). I go back and forth on this but it seems like the intention is good.It will certainly be a transition for those using the platform for business.

Los Angeles Times - Have you ever heard of the Marshall Islands? The islands were the site for United States nuclear testing in the 1950’s and now “The Tomb” (as locals call it) or the Runit Dome, is a concrete coffin that houses US produced radioactive soil including lethal amounts of plutonium according to this article. Whoa. What’s worse? The dome is now at risk of collapsing due to rising sea levels and global warming. Click to read the US's response to the Marshallese governments cry for help.


Named after one of the Shetland Islands of Scotland, Fair Isle sweaters were made famous by the Prince of Wales in the 1920’s. Now they are a winter wardrobe staple. Rounding up some of my favorites for the season here:


wreath - Last week I went to a wreath making event and it was so much fun! I love fresh wreathes that feel simple and organic. I started looking for additional ones for our back door and found this simple one and I also love this olive branch one. Just head to your local craft store for a big ivory ribbon or check out Etsy.

gift - Headed to a white elephant party this holiday season? This is the best universal gift for under $20…hands down. The only way this could fail is if they already have it (but actually you can definitely use multiple).

slow cooker recipe - This French wine and mustard chicken looks AMAZING! A slow cooker is officially on my Christmas wish. Does anyone have any recs for their favorite one? I know I keep coming back to her recipes but the way she films her videos makes everything feel so achievable! She also offers a substitute for the heavy cream and you should be able to find a butter sub as well to make this a dairy-free dish.

snakeskin boots - Are you into this trend? I’ve been on the hunt…I love the look but never found a pair that was just right - in the brown and ivory family. Then I spotted these in the city last week - they’re perfect! Sadly my size was sold out in-store and online but I had to share them. They’re also 30% off today making them under 100 with code shopping19.

holiday dress - A little black holiday dress for $35. In the spirit of high/low dressing, love it paired with the beautiful statement earring.


Live in New York or Connecticut and interested in a cozy weekend getaway? We love Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor. Frank and I have stayed there with and without the kids on many occasions over the years and we’ve always had the best experience. For my birthday, the hotel gifted us a night and I was over the moon excited. Even just 24 hours away felt like huge break. They loved my review and have offered a discount code for me to share with all of you! Click here for a 15% off your next stay with code THEGIRL!
