Weekend Reads, No. 96

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! This is such a funny time of year weather wise. I feel like everyone I follow on Instagram was either basking in warm spring weather or skiing in fresh powder this weekend! Talk about two polar opposites happening at the same time. It’s been glorious in Charleston this weekend so I spent much of the weekend outside (when I wasn’t doing my taxes). I also celebrated a friend’s birthday last night with a good old fashioned house party, which was so fun! Looking ahead to this week, I’m off to California on Thursday and so excited to friends and to celebrate Edwin’s brother as he gets married!

Keep reading for my Weekend Reads, No. 96 complete with all your retinol questions answered, 8 proactive ways you can prevent breast cancer, a 25% off sale from one of my favorite designers, tips for how to find the best yoga retreats, a delicious taco bowl recipe, a new earring collection to love, plants 101 + tips from plant pros, a guide for getting your best eyelashes ever, the perfect slingbacks for spring, & more!

P.S. I’m moderating an amazing panel on Thursday, April 4th with Jessie of Loeffler Randall, Lizzie + Kathryn Fortunato of Lizzie Fortunato Jewels, and Stacey Smallwood of Hampden. It is all about women in business and will be fabulous! If you live in Charleston, then I would love to see you there! Snag tickets here! xx
