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!
