The Weekend Reading List

Weekend Reading List 240

Happy Friday! It’s another three-day weekend over here in the UK. So next week’s posting schedule will look a little different. I’ll have new blog posts up on Tuesday and Thursday, instead of Monday and Wednesday.

There will also be a new episode of the Let’s Discuss podcast out on Tuesday (we have a really fun guest on the show). And there will be lots of Instagram action, next week too, as Monica and I are heading to Glasgow to visit Wendy from Thank Fifi.

Have a fun Bank Holiday weekend, whatever you have planned…


Raise a hand if you’re also obsessed with June Diane Raphael (Brianna from Grace and Frankie). I’m such a JDR fangirl, so was thrilled to see her Top Shelf interview on Into The Gloss, this week.

Caster Semenya is the one at a disadvantage.

The Met Gala takes place on Monday. So let’s look back at some of the most memorable Met Gala looks of all time

How to plan your summer garden.

I always forget to apply lipstick, when doing my makeup. But I think this simple product could turn me into a lipstick lover.

How to help a friend who is facing infertility.

I’m still feeling the sugar high from Easter. But I still can’t resist the look of these frosted sugar cookie bars

Give your desktop a May makeover with these free tech backgrounds.

I absolutely love this check print summer dress!

20 unpopular Gilmore Girls opinions that every fan secretly knows are true. (I fully agree with point 9, that Emily was the best Gilmore girl).

Maine has become the first state to ban Styrofoam food containers. More of this around the globe, please!

This week I read Ariel Levy’s memoir, The Rules Do Not Apply. And oh my goodness, it’s brilliant! Please add it to your lists, if you haven’t read it already. And now that I’m Ariel Levy obsessed, I’ll be reading her 2009 New Yorker profile of Nora Ephron (my favourite!), this weekend…


  1. The lipstick case is such a great idea, however, I am not sure I have the heart to decant my lipsticks. Having said that one of my lipsticks broke at the weekend and perhaps this could kick start the decanting process 🙂
