  1. I hope you had a much needed and restful break.

    Super excited to see how you are settling into your new apartment and the design reveal.
    My mom came over for the last 2 weeks helping me with my apartment and it’s amazing how it feels when its finally coming together.

    I think mentioned this in a comment ages ago but I HIGHLY recommend this quick read(I would send it to you but that would be creepy!) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1449967.Live_Alone_and_Like_It

    “Marjorie Hillis provides no-nonsense advice in this archly funny, gently prescriptive manifesto for single women. Though it was 1936 when the Vogue editor first shared her wisdom with her fellow singletons, the tome has been passed lovingly through the generations, and is even more apt today than when it was first published. Hillis, a true bon vivant, was sick and tired of hearing single women carping about their living arrangements and lonely lives; this book is her invaluable wake-up call for single women to take control and enjoy their circumstances.

    Hillis takes readers through the fundamentals of living alone, including the importance of creating a hospitable environment at home, cultivating hobbies that keep her there (“for no woman can accept an invitation every night without coming to grief”), the question of whether single ladies may entertain men at home (the answer may surprise you!), and many more. Who can resist a book with chapters such as “A Lady and Her Liquor,” “Pleasures of a Single Bed,” and “Solitary Refinement?” A priceless gem from a more genteel age”

    It’s one of those reads that is fun, interesting (because a single woman in 1935 who works at VOGUE!), and still has some good tips(I got hooked on Sherry after reading it the first time)

    Have a great weekend!
