Have a lovely weekend!


My darlings, what are you up to this weekend? Alex, Toby and I are going to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens to see the cherry blossoms on Sunday. I'm also going to try to find time to sneak away and do some spring shopping. I can't keep wearing jeans and Converse, eeks! And I've been reading Tina Fey's book and loving it. She's hilarious. I'd highly recommend it if you want something fun to read. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great posts from around the web...

The genius of cooking onions.

These balloons would be awesome for a wedding!

Tomboy uniforms.

50 ways to cope with stress.

What a colorful home.

Lessons in typography.

Beer on a bike.

How women see color versus men.

15 jobs you never knew existed.

Love these tunics.

Adorable vintage shop for little ones.

What a rad dude!

Have a good one, my lovelies. xoxo

Actually, men recognize more colours than that survey gives them credit for!

According to an anonymous online survey done by XKCD, men recognize SALMON! (while women didn't!)

Check it out here:

Tea! Don't you just love this brand? Two of my son's favorite t shirts are from Tea. Their baby/kids clothes are just adorbs. I love that they aren't too cutesy.

Natalia Valerie said...

Le sigh... after my Bar Method classes & watching Black Swan I've channeled my inner ballerina and that first picture just reminded me of that. I am in search of the perfect tutu - where would I wear it? I am not sure yet!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Sverige said...

This is definitely a topic that closes to me so I’m happy that you wrote about it. I’m also happy that you did the subject some justice. Not only do you know a great deal about it, you know how to present in a way that people will want to read more. I’m so happy to know someone like you exists on the web.
