Weekend Link Roundup

January 29, 2016

1. I was running an errand some time ago and saw this fluffball just chilling in his car (I use male pronouns for all dogs that I meet, until corrected). I couldn't resist taking a few pictures. (I really need to get my own dog.)

2. A heartbreaking read: Baby Doe via the New Yorker. (Related link: The Poverty Clinic.)

3. My favorite purchase this week is the Free People Sheila Hacci Top (also here, here, and here). Order one or two sizes down, since this top is cut generously. I am excited to wear this with an Aerie Lace Bralette and pleather pants.

4. A friend shared this spellbinding video that showcases the usefulness of binder clips on Facebook. I immediately made myself a phone stand with two binder clips (it's slightly wobbly but hey, it's free-ish). To think I almost spent $8 on a "real" stand...

5. 21 Things You Need If You Love Pigs via Buzzfeed. (I don't love pigs but the items linked are pretty cute.)

6. Items in Nordstrom's sale section have been further discounted; select items are now up to 80% off. 

7. I started reading American Prometheus (a biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer) this week and, at my current rate, it may take me six weeks to finish this. I'm always looking for book recommendations, feel free to send me your Goodreads page link.

8. I am surprised to see the Madewell Zip Transport Tote with Pockets marked down online. I don't need this bag but am very tempted.

9. And... we have a winner. Gerber recently chose its new spokesbaby. (Warning: she is adorable. May cause cute aggression.)

Have a great weekend, all!

  1. Best book I've read in the past 5 years: Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Also consider: What is the What, All the Light We Cannot See, Trinity by Leon Uris (old book), Never Let Me Go.

    1. Thank you for the recs! Will add them to my list. :)

  2. Great link to the Baby Doe article! The history of child protection services was more fascinating that I'd realized. In 1971 we could have had universal early childcare, but Nixon vetoed it. Now parents are paying 1500/month for daycare and mothers are trapped in abusive relationships because they have no financial resources because they have to stay home with their babies.
