It's the first day of February. Valentine's Day might be 13 days away, but I feel like everyone could just use a hug (myself included). So I'm sending a virtual one and throwing in some links for some midweek reading. Nothing political or serious, just some reading to brighten your Wednesday morning.

Speaking of Valentine's Day, I just picked up this card for Ian and can't wait to give it to him.

I used the app Collect to gather a daily photo throughout January and just posted a recap on my Instagram. It was a fun way to reflect on the first month of the year and see some beauty in all of its challenges.

I didn't catch the SAG Awards red carpet on Sunday so I loved flipping through this recap from The Cut. I loved Yara Shahidi's striped Naeem Khan, was actually into Nichole Kidman's peacock dress (kind of fun when actresses have a little fun with the red carpet, don't you think?), and loved Kate Hudson's overall look, especially her hair.

I'm not big on musicals, but I can't wait to see Emma Watson in Beauty and the Beast. The new trailer just came out and it's so good.

I finally updated my site's San Francisco guide so all of my local favorites can be found here.

I've been a fan of Outdoor Voices for ages but have yet to purchase anything. After reading this article on Cup of Jo I want these running pants and these leggings.

Shopbop is having a really good sale right now. Currently in my shopping cart: this MOTHER Letterman Jacket, these blush Jeffrey Campbell's, and these Sam Edelman mules.
