Happy Friday everyone!  What are you up to this weekend?  We’re headed to Salem this weekend.  Witches and potions and ghosts oh my!  Anyone who knows me, know that I love Halloween.  Needless to say, I’m so insanely excited to tool around the town, do a ghost tour and see the Bewitched Statue.  What are you up to this weekend?  Here are some  links I found from around the web, happy clicking!

Listen up,  30 is not the new 20.

Vogue poses 73 Questions to Sarah Jessica Parker and also Nicole Kidman (isn’t she lovely?)

Take a gander at Christian Louboutin’s home in Portugal

I want nothing more that a big warm bowl of this gooey pasta.

This perfume  may be my new fall/ winter scent

Hurry! Ann Taylor is doing 50% off your entire purchase.  I got a new interview outfit and made out like a bandit with some great shoes.

How about some mulled white wine?

Presidential Canditate Poetry Slam.  Enough said.

See you Monday!

Have a Really Fabulous Weekend

Hey there you wonderful readers you, happy Friday!  I’m sorry I’m getting this to you so late but I had work and then I got a little carried away in my excitement of the return of House of Cards!  This weekend I’m going to a stranger’s birthday party, getting ready for one of my closest friends to come and visit and holing up in a cozy coffee shop to continue the full-time job hunt.  What are you up to?  Something wonderful I hope.  Here are some things I found around the web this week that I thought I’d share with you.

If you haven’t already, you’ve got to check out Magnolia Market, run by Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s Fixer Upper.  Their home accents are simple and beautiful in every way.

I could not stop laughing at this photographic comparison of Los Angeles and New York City.

Have you heard of Kit and Ace?  Poke around their site and read their About page, I think you’re going to like them.

Here’s a really great blog post with super helpful denim wearing tips from the denim experts of Madewell.  (You should shop around, they just got some super crave worthy pieces in.)

The only election calendar you’ll need all year.  (You should also definitely sign up for he Skimm.)

How simple and pretty is this cocktail?

I’m absolutely dying to try this truffled gnocchi macaroni and cheese.  Three of my favorite things in one warm and satisfying dish.

I’m really loving all of the beauty products Anthropologie is now carrying.

I hope you enjoyed all of these as much as I did.  Have a fantastic weekend and I’ll meet you back here Monday.

 

A Friendly Reminder

Just a friendly reminder to all my smart, wonderful readers that tomorrow is Super Tuesday.  I can’t encourage those of you in states that participate enough to vote.  Yes it maybe be a bit of a nuisance to leave work and wait it line but grab a cup of coffee, bring a good book and just do it.  Your opportunity to vote for a presidential candidate is just as frequent as leap year.  You get a whole extra day today, surely you can spare an hour tomorrow!

Have a LOVE-ly Weekend

Happy (almost) weekend everyone!  It’s supposed to get pretty chilly around here so I plan to cozy up on my couch with large cups of coffee and persevere in the ever-daunting job search.  To all you employed folks out there, what were some helpful things you learned while you were on the hunt?  Any sage advice for me?  Here are some gems from the internet that I found this week.

These photos of Misty Copeland replicating Degas’ masterpieces are absolutely incredible.

Are you as completely and totally obsessed with the Netflix Original Series Making a Murderer as I am?  Part of me hopes that, for your sake, you aren’t BUT if you are here is just a handful of the totally hilarious parodies and memes the show has inspired.  (Which one is your favorite?)

I’m such a ‘UGE fan of Bad Lip Reading.  Here is one for the first Democratic debate and here is one for the first Republican debate.  I will truly never tire of these.

I wish I had seen this post earlier!  Next year I’m totally throwing a Galentine’s Day party even Leslie Knope would be impressed by.

Finally, a product that brings an end to the “I dunno, what do you want to do” conversation between you and your significant other.

This short little article and diagram on the effective weekend habits of successful people was really interesting.

So, this is one of the craziest/ coolest/ strangest/ sweetest things I’ve ever seen.

I’ve posted articles from The New York Times’ column, Modern Love before and I’m so excited to tell you that they now have a podcast!  Take a listen here.  

Are you going to show yourself some love and get yourself a little V-Day something?  I’m thinking of getting myself this or these.  Which do you think?

Have you seen the the new OK Go music video?  It’s kind of totally mind blowing.  (If you haven’t already seen it, here is another super cool video of theirs from a while back 2006.)

I hope you enjoy all of these.  Leave me some comments and let me know what you think.  No really, you should.  We can chat and be friends, it’ll be so great.  Have a happy weekend and, no matter how you spend it and who you spend it with, be good to yourself and to everyone else.  See you Monday!
