Weekend Reads: Irish Good Byes, Rosé & DC Pride


Between a long weekend and a five day pilates bootcamp I’m feeling relaxed, a smidge healthier and firmly planted in the middle of summer. For locals, I’m a huge fan of Fuse Pilates studio  – their pricing is just right and their classes are amazing. The bootcamp was just the jumpstart I needed to get my butt into gear. If only I didn’t love wine so much, but, more on that later. I’m going to spend the weekend with my tender muscles, recovering, reading and catching up on my shows – perfect rainy weather activities! Let’s get this party started though, here’s some links to jumpstart your weekend and get your jam on!
