Life File: Weekend Reads and Finds

Happy Saturday everyone, hope your weekend is off to a great start! I didn’t plan on taking such a long break for the Holidays but I have to admit that it felt amazing to fully disconnect and not be on social media or any other app that requires your “virtual presence” and ultimately acts as a distraction, you know? I’m feeling recharged and ready to tackle the year. For now I’m going to share the usual weekend links, hope you enjoy them and find something you like! I’ll be back at regular programming next week 🙂

Also, if you’re a fan of bralettes and their vintage pj’s and leggings, you won’t believe the prices, so check it out!
