I’m just going to come right out and say it, I want snow. It’s mid January! I want snow before I am sick of winter, which is basically already happening and then I just want to get the eff out of here. I don’t even see any in the forecast, what the heck New England? Oh and it’s freezing, so it’s not like it’s not snowing but it’s gorgeous, it’s a frozen tundra. In other news, I am still konmari’ing everything in my house so if you need me this weekend, I’ll be in a pile of miscellaneous items deciding what brings my joy.

Adding these libraries to my travel bucket list because they’re all incredible. (C)
This true crime story about Samuel Little, one of America’s most prolific serial killers, is chill inducing. What’s worse, how many of his crimes were deemed less important because of the victims.
Need to try these superfood oats from Remi.
A cashmere turtleneck sweater is a great piece for a capsule wardrobe. This one is on sale right now and comes in nice neutrals. I have it in sesame and just ordered the honey. I recommend sizing up if you don’t want it fitted. (J)
You’re welcome in advance for these salad as a meal tips. Getting your veggies have never felt so satisfying. Can’t wait to try this raw and roasted dinner salad and this tahini-ranch dressing.
My brother sent me a link to this and it was pretty depressing to scroll through. Makes you think that’s for sure.
Real talk: starting a new chapter is scary.
I finally invested in a new puffy coat and really love this one from Patagonia. It’s super warm and fits really nicely (I got it in small). (J)
Loved this honest review of 2018 from Kelly over at Studio DIY. She talks about why she scaled back her business this year. In a world where everyone is always pushing for more, more, more it’s nice to see someone talk about how important it is to feel good about what you’re doing. (C)
Has anyone tried Maelove? It’s skincare that’s all about $28 per product.
Leave it to Grace to write something so beautiful and moving about a break-up. I cried reading it. (J)
West Elm launched a new bath line and the towels are what dreams are made of.
Interesting thoughts on why and how we drink. And why not drinking makes people so uncomfortable.
The consumer electronics show is this week–here are the five coolest gadgets there.
thanks so much jess ! love you ! xoxo
I have the Pata Down With It Parka and it is by far the best fitting parka I have tried. Although, I have the grey and it clearly shows any type of oil stain. She gets a wash once a month. It gets a redesign for Fall 2019 and I don’t care for the baffle design. I should go ahead and get another color before the update!
The BuzzFeed article on millennials isn’t from a Baby Boomer’s perspective, the author talks extensively about how she is a millennial!
I don’t know why I wrote that, I read the article twice, haha. Was probably getting it mixed in with another link. Thank you for raising.
