Links + Loves

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

1 / When I think about travel, I immediately think of Europe. If you've never been, World of Wanderlust recently posted a great list about "Where to Go for your First Time in Europe."

2 / Since I haven't done a Links + Loves post since July (!), this is old news but whatever, I'm sharing anyway. Natalie Portman is coming back to the Thor movies in a surprising way. (I'm 100% here for this.)

3 / This kitten AirBnB (yes you read that right) is the cutest thing ever and is it crazy that I want to check it out?

4 / I find Elsie Larson from A Beautiful Mess to be inspiring in so many ways – whether it's creatively or what she shares about her personal life. Back in July, she wrote this post about her health/lifestyle journey that really got me thinking. It's the approach I took a year ago but I've fallen off the bandwagon a bit and I need to change that.

5 / I'm a designer without a design degree. Ultimately I know my experience and work ethic speaks for itself but it's gratifying to see an article like "Hiring Designers: Why Facebook, Medium, and UENO don’t ask for your design degree" on Medium.

6 / With a post title like "Is it time to Marie Kondo your friendships? (& how to know who sparks joy)" how could I not click on it? But in all seriousness, I agreed very much with her sentiment!

7 / Jeans for my petite frame has always been a struggle and at 4"11 and a half, I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I'll almost always need to get mine hemmed. That said, Extra Petite posted a great in-depth review of Express jeans (now I want another pair!).


1 / I loved the pointed flats from Rothy's and after owning the black pair for nearly a year now, I decided to cave in and buy the marigold colored ones.

2 / I first heard about Miranda Frye from one of my favorite bloggers, Fashion Jackson, and now I'm obsessed. Their London bracelet has become a staple in my jewelry collection. It's out of stock but put yourself on the mailing list!

3 / This past weekend I finished my living room redesign project (finally!) and one of the new pieces of furniture I bought was this glass-door cabinet from IKEA. It looked great online but I love it even more in person. And if you have a IKEA family card, you get a $70 discount on this item.


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

  1. The marigold flats are SO your aesthetic! And honestly, we should Marie Kondo just about everything in our lives because we don't have time for anything that DOESN'T spark joy ;)


with love,
