Currently Obsessed: 5 Things

A few things I'm swooning over this week...

1.) Emily Henderson's patio makeover:

Do you follow Emily on insta?  I've never met her but I've got quite a girl crush from watching her stories.  Home girl keeps it real with all her followers.  She might have a design empire at this point, but she never hesitates to level with her audience and share how hard the hustle can be, especially with two young kids- and I really dig that.

2.) The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy

I bought this book on my iPhone and have been reading it on subway rides, before I go to bed, while waiting in line at lunch, and any other time I have idle minutes to spare.  Author Ariel Levy is a staff writer for The New Yorker and recently published her memoir, The Rules Do Not Apply.  The book chronicles a period of her life in which she experienced significant losses- both the loss of a marriage and of an expected child.  Ariel's writing is so beautifully raw that I've found myself absolutely mesmerized by her stories. You can read more about the book in this New York Times article.

3.) How to Murder Your Life by Cat Marnell

Another memoir that captured all my attention for the 3 days I read it is Cat Marnell's How to Murder Your Life.  Cat, at the age of 26, was the beauty editor at now-defunct Lucky magazine and lived a seemingly glamorous life.  However, behind the scenes, she was struggling with a prescription drug addiction and doctor shopping all over Manhattan.  Cat shares her years of balancing a life in the beauty industry with the self-destruction and sabotage she was going through behind the scenes.  Although the subject matter is very dark, Cat's writing is witty, candid, and often hilarious as she takes us through the privilege and destruction that painted her teens and 20s.

4.) This quote is everything to me right now:

5.) Loving the St. Frank pop-up shop in East Hampton.  If you go out east this summer, be sure you stop in and check it out.  While there I had to walk away with this keychain. It's full of gorgeousness:

Shop pillows here.

Shop their framed textiles here.

Shop juju hats here.

Have a great Wednesday!
