Links + Loves

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

1 / The Everygirl's article, "What to Focus on Right Now Instead of Trying to Find the 'Right Person'" has basically been my life and proud of it!

2 / I laughed when I saw Society 6's blog post on 4 colors that will instantly boost your mood because two of them are a part of my apartment's color scheme and all four can be seen in my clothes.

3 / I have been saying this for forever! "Your state of mind is a direct mirror of your living environment" and both Marie Kondo (and Apartment Therapy) agree with me! I read the book years ago but I totally want to check out the Netflix show too.

4 / My dream bag is a classic flap bag from Chanel but I have yet to be able to justify the cost in my mind. The blogger at The Stripe talks about her first (and subsequent!) Chanel bag purchases and I actually really liked what she had to say. Maybe a Chanel bag will be in my future.

5 / I started following Lauren Loves on after stumbling across her review of Madewell jeans. I personally don't need any convincing seeing as that I own 3 pairs but if you've never tried their jeans, check out her review. I can't recommend them enough!

6 / It's no secret that I'm not a fan of start-up culture despite working at them for most of my career. This article on the New York Times, "Why Are Young People Pretending to Love Work?", points out a lot of the reasons why I feel that way.

7 / Kotaku's post, "Japan is getting yet another Hello Kitty train" gave me yet another reason to visit Japan one day.


1 / I usually have hard-boiled eggs every morning so I like to make them in bulk so I can just grab a couple as I rush out to catch the bus. When I saw the Dash rapid egg cooker I added it to my Secret Santa wishlist and I was so happy my cousin got it for me! I use it all the time now.

2 / I literally just bought these fleece-lined tights last week because I knew I wanted to wear a dress to Leigh Bardugo's book event and wow, game changer! I feel like I can wear dresses/skirts again during winter without freezing.

3 / Continuing with my love of Dash kitchen products, I got their mini waffle maker and again, I'm such a fan. I've been using it on Saturday mornings when I don't have any plans and it's so easy to use.


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


  1. Carly the Prepster also just wrote a blog post about getting her first Chanel bag this week! And I have the same egg cooker and I love it!

  2. My new goal for 2020 is to meal plan a little bit, both to save money and to eat healthier! I actually want to get that egg cooker - it's so cute.


with love,
