Happy Friday! It’s drizzling and grey outside here today, and I’m pretty excited about it. I have a bunch of work to get done at the computer and I’m planning to just stay in my pajamas for as long as possible. Working from home (mostly) can be pretty fun. Are you doing anything exciting this weekend? We have a friend’s 30th birthday tomorrow which I’m looking forward to, and other than that it’s kind of all Justin and I have going on.
Whatever you’re up to, have a good one!
-From Domaine: 7 Healthy Habits for 30-Somethings. Even if you’re not in your thirties (I have one more year!) these are some good ideas and tips for balance
-Sign me up: a list of 8 Magical Wrinkle Fighting Foods. I would have guessed all of these except #2. Also if you are looking for something to make your skin look glowy and amazing, buy this.
-Epicurious has an entire section dedicated to cooking without recipes. This baked oatmeal looks amazing. Speaking of breakfast food did you make my granola yet?
–A chat with the founders of The Skimm on what they did know and things they wish they had known when starting their business. You get The Skimm, right? Reading it is the first thing I do each morning (while snuggling with Penny).

Happy April Fool’s Day! Did you do anything funny to anyone? I kind of meant to prank Justin but am not organized enough to think of something to do. Darn. Are you doing anything fun this weekend? We really have almost no plans which is kind of nice, I’m hoping to see my niece and nephew, finish this book, and maybe hit the beach or go for a bike ride.
Have a good one!
–The Four Classic Pastas That Every Roman Knows, via Food 52. Pasta alla Gricia sounds delicious though I’m not sure where one would buy guanciala aka cured pork cheeks…
-Travel & Leisure lists the Best Places for Women to Travel Alone. Have you ever travelled on your own? I’ve been to Paris and London on my own, and it was actually a pretty fun experience; London was before and Paris was after a monthlong Contiki tour that I went on by myself (though there was a whole busload of people with me so I wasn’t really on my own) when I was 24. If you’re still young (and even if you’re not!) I highly recommend Contiki btw, it was such a fun experience.
–A quick one minute visit that teaches you to stop being lazy. Don’t be lazy, go watch it!
-This is an interesting read: How the Founder of Four Seasons Stumbled Into the Hotel Business.
ps, the skirt I was talking about yesterday arrived and is as cute as I had hoped. Score!
Are you going to church or hosting a brunch or doing anything Easter-y this weekend? Justin and I are heading to Santa Barbara and while I’m going to miss seeing my sweet niece and nephew in their little Easter outfits, I’m pretty excited for a weekend away. We’re bringing Penny with us too which should be interesting, since she’s not a huge fan of car rides (ie she usually throws up). Wish us luck! Have a fun couple of days, here are some links to get the weekend started on an interesting note.
–20 Podcasts You Should Be Listening To, via Vogue UK. I still didn’t listen to Serial, so I guess I should start there…
-This is pretty sweet: a photographer has captured people kissing in public places all around the world. I like the elderly couples and the little kids!
–Who What Wear shows us 35 unboring ways to wear a basic t-shirt. I’ve yet to find the elusive ‘perfect’ tee, but this comes pretty close.
-And a few sales, since it is a long weekend after all. J.Crew has 25% off with code SHOPMORE, Club Monaco is offering an extra 30% off already reduced items, and Bloomingdales has a ton of new stuff reduced up to 60% off. Happy shopping!
