Weekly Roundup

Welcome back to another weekly roundup everyone! Has everyone finished their Christmas shopping yet? I’m really trying to wrap things up but I know I’ll be scrambling to get everything together like always. I have some really cool articles to share with you today so your Friday can start and end well. Grab a hot cup a coffee and enjoy. I’m heading to New York today with my dad for the weekend. I’m really excited to be back in the city and eat great food and enjoy the sights.

 

1.The lack of diversity on magazine covers in 2017

I read an article on Fashionista.com about the decline of diversity on magazine covers this year. I have high hopes for 2018 and these publications. Hopefully, they can feature women of all ethnicities… Fingers crossed! Read the article here.

 

2. Weekend trip to New York

I’m spending the weekend in New York with my dad and I’m pretty excited about it. We have dinner planned at Red Rooster in Harlem and this restaurant is delicious. You need to book reservations a week in advance because it gets so packed but I mean it when I say this place is AMAZING. Click here to check it out. I’ll probably just walk around and enjoy the sights and I’ll find my favorite waffle truck. I’ve been following this truck since my days at St John’s! Find it here.

 

3. The Influencer Podcast, episode 5 

On episode 5 Julie talks to Deanna Ritter who is the Business Development Manager at ShopStyle! It’s a great conversation with some helpful tips if you’re looking to grow your blog through affiliate marketing. Here is a link to her website so you can download the podcast.

 

4. Weekend sales 

Old Navy – Up to 60% off the entire store. Get yourself some cute PJ’s or some slippers. Check out my picks below.

 

5. Pre-Fall 2018 

I’m sitting here on Vogue Runway looking at clothes I can’t afford but a girl can dream. I watched influencers Instagram Stories from the Koché show at Strand Bookstore and it was dreamy. Here are a few of my favorite looks.

Welcome to another weekly roundup post filled with some fun articles and things I loved this week. I normally post this series on Fridays but I decided to post on a Sunday. I have some cool gift guide post coming soon to the blog and I’m really excited to share everything I’m working on with my readers. I don’t know about you but I’m all for the holidays right now!! I’m constantly on Pinterest looking for holiday decor ideas and recipes to make. I plan on making holiday sugar cookies too and decorating them. It’s so hard though because I love sugar cookies! I just want to eat them as soon as they come out the oven. Let me know what you guys like to do during the holidays. I’m always looking for new ideas. Thanks for reading.

 

1.Podcast 

One of my favorite influencers Sazan Hendrix linked this podcast called The Influencer Podcast by Julie Solomon. The podcast talks about the changes happening with influencer marketing and the careers of top influencers. It’s so interesting to hear how they started their blogs and future business plans. I linked her website here.

I received some new items from J.Jill just in time for the holidays. I wore this sweater (linked here) already and It’s so soft. I asked for it in a size small and it’s still a little oversized. Stop by the J.Jill website to see what’s new in their December Collection.
