Have a great weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend? This balmy weather is awesome; I'm excited to take a bike ride with Alex and Toby. We're also going by this discussion about parenting in Scandinavia. (Can't wait to hear more about babies sleeping outside.) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, and here are a few great links from around the web...

This tumblr made me laugh out loud.

Egg on pizza!

Colorblocking love.

Did anyone else feel weird yesterday? Just realized it was a full moon.

Would you stay in this Paris hotel room?

Awesome sweatshirt.

Spring nail polish.

Did you know this weekend is daylight savings? The days are getting longer!

Police composites of famous literary characters. (Created by running their descriptions through police suspect sketching software.)

This giant flower would be make a cool centerpiece.

And don't forget: Take 20% off anything at ASOS until Sunday, with the code ACUPOFJO. (I ordered these pink shoes, and the designer brand Whistles is fantastic.)

I have been wondering, how come it doesn't bother you that Woody Allen is such a womanizer? Do you find it endearing? His movies seem to always be about him or some other old dude getting with a much younger woman (or women). I always want to like his movies because of the setting, actors, etc, but I can't stand that trend!

Briana said...

Hoping to have OUR BABY this weekend. Sheesh. I'm 39 weeks but beyond ready for her to come out. Impatient, maybe?

Enjoy your weekend. Send me baby-having thoughts! :-)

Anna said...

Estelle said...

This tumblr is hilarious !!! And yes, I felt really cranky last evening for no reason :) So whether I am annoying for real, or the moon has its toll on me !

Abbey S said...

These posts are so perfect at the end of the day on Fridays when I really have nothing to do but still have to be at work.

Thanks.

Tiffany and Jim said...

I agree with Katie and he married a girl he raised as his daughter, did everyone forget that?

Kate said...

I'll stay out of the Woody, yes or no...but I am wondering who the photograph is by. Because no link & no attribution is a no-no. And you know that.

Kelly said...

Nicole Jeannette said...

Oh! The parenting conversation should be interesting! Enjoy!

next week is going to be the best, i can just tell;)

Ashley said...

That hotel room makes me feel stressed. However, if it was either stay there or not be in Paris, I think I could manage.

gia said...

Thanks for daylight savings reminder. I'm a single gal and this has got me in the past. :)

{Liana} said...

Yesterday's full moon absolutely affected me! Back to neutral today.
Those tumblr images were hysterical!

I'll be in New York this weekend, for an interview at Sarah Lawrence! So excited for a great weekend filled with warm weather!

Sandra said...

I hereby request a report back on the Scandinavian parenting. Pretty please. A region with such great style - how can their parenting not be stylish too! Or at the very least, thoughtful and thought provoking!

Anonymous said...

I totally love your blog. Period.

I would stay in ANY Paris hotel room!

1,000 oceans said...

Speaking of Scandinavian parenting..I highly recommend the children's play space at Scandinavia House on 38th and Park. It's open to the public on Saturdays. Checked it out last weekend and my 2 year old loved it!

sécia said...

That tumblr is awesome and that hotel room... fantastic.

Joanna Goddard said...

oooh, 1000 oceans, great tip, thank you!!!

in dreams said...

that hotel room is AMAZING. holygods. definitely a must-stay, if i manage to get to paris before it disappears!

Nicole said...

Yay, daylight savings time. Spring is just around the corner!

beencie said...

My mom was just asking me today about where she should stay in Paris, so I sent her the link to that hotel!
I think that room would be cool, but would shock me every time I'd wake up.

mieledi said...

Nice post.so good.Christian Louboutin like it very much.

Luna said...

That Paris hotel room would make my insomnia permanent. But I love that dress!

RuBee said...

Egg on pizza is amazing. Fiorentina pizzas are my absolute favourite with egg, spinach and olives. X

Maria said...

As a Scandinavian mum (Swedish), I´m very interested to hear what these mums at Polarn o Pyret will talk about. It´s a very strange feeling when thing you do naturally is regarded as something really special, and even strange ;) We have all been brought up with sleeping in our prams outdoors, but to be honest, placing the pram outside a café or restaurant is not so common any more. Even our countries have sadly become less safe.

Thanks for a great and always inspiring blog!

Jen said...

I still see the pram outside fairly frequently here in copenhagen. don't think I could do it but fair play to them.

that hotel reminds me of the room that I've booked for my wedding night... hotel fox which has some pretty crazy rooms.

Sarah van Loon said...

Just ordered a pair of super cute flats on ASOS. Thanks for the discount, Joanna!! :)

Dovecote Decor said...

Love FYNCT! I stayed in it for way too long. Just came back from the Design Bloggers Conference in L.A. and visited the most beautiful Hollywood Regency house--ever!!
Come by and take a peak. Oh, and that Pulino's pizza is the bomb.
Best,
Liz

GuapaSunshine said...

Hi Joanna ! Nice post ! BTW the hotel is in Marseille (south France) not Paris.
Have a Nice Week end
;)

Arlen said...

I had no idea parenteing in Scandinavia was like "a thing" - I grew up in Sweden but my parents are hispanic so I guess I have a bit of a mixed uppbringing. I always just asumed my mom was the strange one when she was surprised by the babies sleeping outside, for me it's the most natural thing in the world, funny how cultural differences sneek up on you in the least expected ways :-)

Tuesday said...

Ha Ha that sweatshirt is a giant picture of my colleagues ex-boyfriend I should get it for her!

Happy Weekend.

I loved this week's round-up from the Scandanavian child-rearing tips to the egg on pizza recipe. I must say that I LOVE Whistles and have since I went to London 4(!!!) years ago. The only thing stopping me from buying online is the awful exchange rate; I'm pretty sure ASOS doubles the prices to account for the conversion as well. Thanks for continuously being awesome! :)

Those Police composites are totally going to give me nightmares...

Nikki Fein said...

That hotel is great, although it's not in Paris but in Marseille.
Love reading your blog;)

vanessa said...

Hi Joanna,

It is frustrating and tiresome to see a professional blogger (who makes money from her blog!!) post uncredited photos week after week!! please try and set a better example for other bloggers and be a bit more thoughtful to the photographers you admire.

Best,
Vanessa

Sage said...

Katie Muncie said...

LOVE YOUR WEEKEND POSTS!

Jillian@TheHumbleGourmet said...

I love the composite sketches. Fantastic!

Kat Elliott said...

I know how you love braids and easy updos so I thought you'd like this little gem:

It would be cute to try, then share for one of your tutorials. I love the idea but only have short hair.
Hope you enjoy!

Wendy said...

Haaa loved FYNCT!

GOSIA said...

Funily enough I've just read the post about babies sleeping outside that you linked with my son in his pram on the balcony of our apartament. It's just 0 degrees Celcius here in Warsaw, Poland today. He's 8 months now and up to now I would mainly carry him around (it's because of Jean Liedloff's idea of continuum concept - I wish I had heard about it before I had my two older sons!)but now he is perfectly happy to get as much fresh air as possible while napping! BTW: I love your Motherhood Monday series and I recommend these posts to all moms I know (who speak English)! Have a nice day!

<3 egg on pizza!!!

Karen said...

Hey, just read the link you put in about babies sleeping outside. I was raised this way. (Canada. 1960's) According to my mother, it was quite common to leave your pram on the front porch and babies had their morning or afternoon nap there. It was also quite usual to see a pram left outside of stores (with the baby in it) while the mom did her shopping. I had a big old fashioned pram and was complaining to my mom on how difficult it was to maneuver it around the stores and wondered how they all did it years ago and that was when my mom mentioned that we were all just left outside the store! I also know sleeping outside winter and summer was considered a healthy way for your baby to sleep (in Canada in the 60's anyway!)

Hanne Margrete said...

Dear Joanna and readers,

I am a Norwegian girl at 26, and I am born and raised in the nothern part of Norway, well over the Arctic Circle. We always let our babies take their nap outside, and in the middle of the winter there can be down to -20 C (-4 F), windy and snowy, and we still let them sleep outside.

We have a big baby bag made of sheep fur- sewn with the hair in and the skin out, and we put the baby in it, place him in the stroller (special type), wrap wool blankets and a harder one over, and sometimes we wrap wool blankets around the stroller. When you put him in, you wont even see him due to all the thick sheep fur! The baby is wearing its thin, knitted wool clothes while sleeping outside. It's perfect for the child, and they are always warm and well rested when we take them in again. Babies sleep best in fresh air. I have a college degree and think of myself as a modern and urban person, but I would never quit this tradition and put my baby to nap inside the house.

Foreigners often find this practice strange and even scary because of the cold!

Best regards, Hanne Margrete
