I’ve always wanted to do link love posts as I come across all sorts of good reads daily. (We can ignore the fact that it’s taken me four years of blogging to roll out my first link love post. Oops.) Aiming to do these on a regular basis, but I make no promises!
The back of the hand is the go-to place to swatch just about anything makeup-related at the store, but The Sunday Girl breaks down why that’s not ideal, and where you should be swatching what type of products when sampling in stores.
I shouldn’t buy any more polish until I make more of a dent in the current bottles I own, but Jen’s liquid sand manicure is intriguing! I can’t imagine it would be easy to remove, though.
Aloysa outlines why she hates regifting. I can’t believe someone actually tried to regift her a used lipstick!!
Little Miss Moneybags’ series “Notes from the NICU” tugs at my heartstrings. Her post about things people say about having a baby in the NICU is particularly moving.
Michael’s Mexican corn soup recipe is the type of recipe that made me run to the store that day so I could make the soup immediately. Delicious!
I guess the fact that it’s January has me on a bit of a soup kick. Closet Cooking’s lasagna soup looks like a great take on the classic lasagna.
I love French onion soup. I also love macaroni and cheese. Desiree’s caramelized French onion mac and cheese has the potential to blow my mind.
This ThoughtCatalog article on how to live in Washington, D.C. is spot-on. I wish I had written it.
A new year is often associated with new beginnings. Emily ties the transformative power of friendships in with that theme.
I have a wonderful job in my chosen field of public relations. But I also adore traveling and have a case of wanderlust I fear will never be satiated. eemusings talks about different ways to fit travel into your life plan.
I love the title of Captain Awkward’s post: “If he wanted to be your boyfriend, he’d be your boyfriend.” WORD. The reasoning is pretty spot-on too, but the title just says it all for me.
The New York Times article The End of Courtship? sums up why, when G first asked me out, I straight-up immediately clarified whether or not that meant he would become my boyfriend. The dating scene/process is far too ambiguous otherwise.
