Hi from New York! FINALLY got here yesterday. It was quite the ordeal (if you follow me on Snapchat, I’m sure you saw). Let’s just say I talked to United Airlines no less than 27 times on the phone this past week. But who cares because I’m HERE and I may never leave, haha! Kidding. Anyway, as I mentioned on Monday, I won’t be attending my conference this go around due to being sick earlier in the week and all the travel changes and such, BUT I still have a jam packed weekend ahead and I can’t wait. I’ll be spending time with family and friends, having some good meals, I’m sure lots of drinks, and just soaking up this cold New York weather! How has your week been? Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope you have the best few days off (and end of spring break if you’re currently on break!). Some really great reads and finds below, so enjoy! xo Julie
