Links + Loves

Here are some non-bookish articles I really liked this past month and my latest loves.

1 / Finding people at work or even a single person that you can talk to freely makes a huge difference in your work environment. It certainly does for me! I really liked what The Cut had to say about what to do "when you feel left out at work".

2 / Self shared the story of a woman who went on a "solomoon" before her wedding and she's kind of my hero. Even if I ever get married, I'm going on a solomoon too!

3 / I am a huge, huge fan of The Bucket List Family and of Nina Dobrev's. Seeing them (via Instagram and their weekly video!) go on a vacation together with other friends, living on a ship in Indonesia for a week was weird, super cool and very inspiring.

4 / Apartment Therapy posted "How American Girl Dolls Would Decorate If They Lived in Studio Apartments". Samantha was always my favorite and her apartment is so me.

5 / How can you start the new year and not think about resolutions? Dame Traveler shares "10 Travel Resolutions" while Thought Catalog shares "19 Things I Promise To Do for Myself in 2019". ALL these things should be on everyone's lists.

6 / I'm about to admit something pretty big but.. I hate the movie Love, Actually. So when I saw The Everywhereist post "Every Relationship In Love, Actually, Listed In Order of How Dysfunctional They Are." I felt so seen.

7 / If you follow me on Twitter, then you've seen me tweet about bingeing The Magicians. I'll share more in-depth thoughts on the show soon but if you haven't watched, let this amazing clip from Season 3 convince you to (I don't think it's that spoilery).

1 / There's something really wonderful about taking the time to write down what you're grateful for every single day. At first I tried a physical journal but I'd forget or I'd already be in bed and wouldn't want to turn the lights back on. Then I found the Grateful app! It's beautifully and simply designed and I haven't missed a day since I downloaded it.

2 / For my cousins' Secret Santa, I put these Dr. Scholl's oxford shoes and I'm so happy my person got them for me! They're even cuter in person and I've gotten a ton of compliments every time I've worn them.

3 / I have been long overdue for a new computer but wasn't willing to spent over $2K on one so I decided to go with the Apple Mac Mini. It's more budget-friendly, way more powerful than my 2014 MacBook Air (not ideal for designers!) and I'm just really happy with it so far.


Do you have any links or loves to share?
Would love to hear about them!


  1. I DON'T LIKE LOVE ACTUALLY EITHER AND I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE!!! Also, I loved that Apartment Therapy article when I read it! And yessss that is hands down my favorite scene from the Magicians!

  2. OH MY GOODNESS! I need to download that Grateful app. I don't know why I didn't do it when I first read this post, but that's definitely happening now!


with love,
