link love


Things that make me happy: finding out that your 5 day week is actually a 4 day week, and therefore my 2 day weekend is actually a 3 day weekend. This is the kind of math I can get into, people! To celebrate having today off (yippee!), I've got a bunch of extra-special links from around the web to share with you today.

♥ I'm so excited about marriage equality across all 50 states. This is huge. However, the LGBT community is far from seeing equality in this country. Here are ten issues that matter way more than marriage equality.

♥ The most important thing you will read this week: questions to ask before giving up. I think this should be required reading for all humans and should be posted in all buildings everywhere. It's that good.

♥ And the second most, but only barely: 12 intuitive eating myths. I highly recommend reading every slide -- I got so much out of this, y'all. One of the things that resonated with me the most is the comparison between intuitive eating as an adult and simply just eating as a kid.

♥ This Vine combines my two favorite things: chubby animals and Phil Collins.

♥ And when more of my favorite things combine: Rachel Lately guest posted on Selective Potential this week and my heart grew at least three sizes. Check it out to see a bunch of my favorite spots along South Congress and the cutest sunflower shorts ever.

♥ I love when other people share their monthly small goals! Chelsea's July goals are fantastic, and I'm so excited that she's going to start blogging all the time! Be sure to follow along.

♥ Is it weird that 2 two-year-olds are my current style icons?

♥ This outfit is all I want to wear for the rest of forever (except with flats, of course).

 The wedding I blogged this week that made me smile the most.

♥ A little red, white, and blue wishlist for the 4th: this perfect striped shirt, this white midi skirt (on sale!), this pretty laser-cut blouse (also on sale!), the hat my weekends always beg for, and a cherry lip to top it all off (has anyone tried Sugar? I hear so many women swear by it and it looks like the perfect amount of pigment!).

Share your favorite links in the comments -- I have a long weekend and lots of time to read!


  1. I love these links. A lot of them have really made me smile today which is lovely :) The 'questions to ask before giving up' was something I really needed today, thank you. x

  2. Yay! I actually have time for some link love this week!

  3. That outfit is so lovely! I always struggle with how to layer large or loose tanks and this is the perfect answer! And those little girls are so presh. I can't even handle it.

    The self care printable is amazing. I downloaded it (twice, accidentally) and am going to email it to every woman in my family + a few friends. Most of these are things I'm pretty good about doing myself, but it's always good to have some steps laid out for you for when you're not in a good place. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I really loved the "questions to ask before giving up"--they really put things into perspective! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I have tried Sugar. The color is lovely, not too bold, but the texture is...heavy, I suppose is what I'd call it. Not a lightweight balm. I always feel like I have to blot it after applying. If you're looking for a tinted balm, I'd recommend Tarte's Amazonian Butter Lipstick. It doesn't feel so thick and the color is lovely.

  6. If you like those 2 year olds, you need some Quinoa in your life!! -
