mid-week round-up

How have you been, friends? I spent the weekend sleeping in + eating brunch + wandering around Coconut Grove + buying way too much local food. (Oh and I finally watched this movie! So good.) I did not spend the weekend doing laundry + cleaning my apartment. Whoops! Kinda don’t care. Sometimes you just need to do YOU for a weekend, ya know. Ok, here’s a few links for your enjoyment…

 

Block people and pretend they died.

I did a sheet mask last night and now I want to impulse order a million on Amazon.

An eye-opening text convo reveals the reality of everyday abuse.

So, is Gwyneth Paltrow a modern-day snake-oil saleswoman?

mid-week round-up

heart-in-ice

Howdy folks! I hope everyone is having a wonderful and restful holiday season!!! Things were getting crazy busy around these parts (I worked a TON during the lead up to Dec. 25th) but after a lovely first Christmas as married folk they’ve started to level off. Phew! On Christmas Eve we stayed up late eating pigs-in-blankets and watching Home Alone (a new tradition if I have anything to say about it!). Then, on Christmas morning we slept in (bliss!), had cinnamon rolls and coffee while we opened presents, and proceeded to straight CHILL all day! Chet and our families spoiled me with so many lovely presents. (Including Alexa!) While we certainly would have preferred to make it home to Kentucky or Louisiana, we still managed to have a pretty perfect day just the two of us. Now, on to the next holiday! Do you have any fun plans for New Year’s Eve? 

This book, about a little known interlude in Picasso’s life, looks right up my street.

6 ideas about what to do with your wedding photos. (I made a photo-book for my mom for Christmas and she loved it!)

In case you were wondering what Charlotte Church has been up to.

Duck Dynasty vs. Modern Family: 50 maps of the U.S. cultural divide.

Why straight rural men have gay “bud-sex” with each other.

How Miss Cleo went from joke to legend.

A fun bike accessory for wine-lovers.

bicycle wine rack

Now this is rather a niche item. But LORD if you know an avid cyclist with a penchant for the grapey-grape, you could certainly win a LOT of brownie points if you gifted them this bike accessory. Etsy seller oopsmark hand makes these bicycle wine racks with olive oil treated, vegetable tanned leather and antique brass fasteners. Wouldn’t it be fun to strap in your favorite bottle of Pinot and ride off into the sunset towards a dinner party?

P.S. My love lies a little more strongly with the hand-crafted yoga mat strap. Dinner parties be damned! I’ve got sun’s to salute and crow poses to conquer!
