tumblr_n5y3f1rDaJ1rbqpjlo1_500 Class of ’21 entertains the graduating class of ’71 during commencement and reunion at Smith College via Vintage National Geographic. In case you, too, need a little light this week.

3 new takes on classic summer lemonade and summer salads made for toting. Who wants to picnic?

Poignant shots of modernist homes just prior to their demolition.

In defense of old-lady perfumes. Amen to all of this.

Really digging this #girlboss video series that’s going down over on Nasty Gal. Lots of inspiration and wisdom in those two-minute videos!

Last but not least, a candid interview with lil’ ol’ me re: my favorite local thrift stores and people I like on Twitter (and in real life).

How cute is this editorial from Queen Magazine’s March of ’68 edition?
Photographs done by Patrick Hunt and illustrations are by Barry Zaid.

In the mood for more adorable? Then you must see this photo set by Japanese photographer Toyokazu Nagano of his 4-year-old daughter Kanna. Absolutely precious.

Yes to all of this: What if I Don’t Want to Dress Like a French Girl?

I’m thinking of printing this list of hard things you need to do to be successful out and pinning it to my wall, dashboard, forehead. Lots of motivation in them 19 points!

A collection of recipes inspired by Girls, featuring not one, but TWO Bundt cakes! #love

Speaking of food, my absolute favorite burger made it to Time‘s list of the most influential burgers of all time. Way to go Matt’s!

I cannot wait to read my (brilliant) friend Megan’s writing on love and sex on Garance Doré. So rad and so proud!

Trailers for Netflix = total genius. It’s led me to some gems I never would’ve found.

I hope y’all are surviving the week OK? I’m fighting off a cold, but hopefully it’ll head for the hills before the weekend. Fingers crossed!

Goodness gracious, this outdoor embroidery work by Milwaukee-based fiber artist Molly Evans is so great! Love, love, love how she gives new purpose to that ho-hum castoff furniture.

A circa-1963 Bill Clinton and his mom at a Christmas party. LOL!

It’s been months since I discovered the Blush for Wine app and I’m as obsessed as ever. If you like wine and own an iPhone, check it out ASAP!

Lovers of both retro and food will find hilarity and inspiration on this vintage-recipe card blog. (Vintage Betty lovers will appreciate this collection of recipes!)

New York music venues at their peak = raddest photo set I saw all week.

Well that’s it for tonight. I’ve had a couple busy days leading a freezer meals photo shoot at work and I’m beat. The recipes are really awesome though, and the crew was so fun and full of sass. Check out their sites! Photographer, food stylist, prop stylist…rad people all around.

snow After spotting this cute forest of fudge on Handmade Charlotte today, it’s quickly moved to the top of my holiday must-make list. Fer cute!

Time mag wants to know what word should be banished in 2014. Only trouble is you can’t vote for ALL of them to go away.

If you’ve ever been tempted to arrange leftover glasses from a dinner party into pretty shapes, these overhead shots by Omar Sosa will confirm your instinct as awesome. Do they look like snowflakes to anyone else? (via Design Crush)

Gift-wrap has been on my mind a lot lately (you’ll see why Friday!), and this post from ModCloth featuring vintage wrapping has got me totally inspired. Especially love those ideas from McCall’s!

Leith Clark + Warby Parker is a thing, so ’60s-style, feminine frames can be yours, or mine, if I ever muster up the courage to go to the eye doctor.

During this season of disproportionate indulgence and too-busy-for-yoga-class work schedules, this read from Kind Over Matter hit home hard this week. Love your curves ladies, and while you’re at it, pass me a cup of ‘nog!

If $1,000 showed up in my checking account tomorrow, I’d plan a trip to San Francisco (to visit my sweet Ian of course) and crash here. #dreamy Shout out to A House in the Hills for the introduction!

Last but not least, I’ve been doing some fun stuff for my girl (Beauty) Bets. Check out  two of my latest posts: Must-Haves for Perfect At-Home Manis and Splurge/Steal, a Tale of Two Illuminators.
