weekend reading 12

I am so excited to officially introduce you to Chelsie!  Chelsie has been and Editor at Glitter Guide and currently puts her talent to work at Biscuit Home, but lucky for us, she has also joined our team!  Chelsie will be sharing her favorite links from around the web every weekend, as well as contributing to other fun projects for us. (Did you see her Mother’s Day Gift Guide this week?)  Give Chelsie a big welcome!  And without further ado, here is Chelsie’s round-up for this week!

I’m excited to take my 13-month-old to Levy Park this weekend! Caroline took her boys there last week and had the best time. You should check it out if you’re in Houston.  Also, be sure to check our Houston Guide for more family fun activities!

Have you heard of the One Room Challenge? Twice a year a group of designers complete a 6-week room makeover, and at the end, the spaces are revealed on House Beautiful. This season my favorite was The Pink Pagoda‘s dining room (if you love blue & white like we do, you will LOVE this space), but Caitlin‘s master bedroom came in close second. Two completely different styles, but both gorgeous! See all 20 makeovers on House Beautiful.

I can’t stop watching The Beguiled trailer. The Sofia Coppola film doesn’t come out until next month, but I’m already making plans to see it on opening weekend!

As we enter the toddler stage with our barely one-year-old, I’m constantly bookmarking articles that I think will help us navigate through this next stage. Caroline and I both found “Not Naughty: 10 Ways Kids Appear to Be Acting Bad But Aren’t” a must read!

Glossier launched their Invisible Shield Sunscreen this week, and I’m intrigued. It’s apparently a clear serum that absorbs into the skin without leaving a white cast or greasy residue. As someone who has a love/hate relationship with sunscreen, I’m definitely giving this product a shot to see if it lives up to its claims!

Cheers to mom! Here are three big-batch brunch cocktails that are perfect for day drinking. I can’t decide which looks better, so I’ll just make all 3. Thanks for the recipes Martha!

I also plan to treat myself this Mother’s Day weekend to a few sales around the web.  This stripe jumpsuit is currently in my cart at Club Monaco! It’s one of those items that could easily be dressed up or down depending on the accessories, which is always an easy buy. Oh, did I mention it’s 25% off, along with all rompers and sandals?

xo, Chelsie
