Good Reads: The Best Links This Week

Well haeey, if it isn't the weekend!

After a busy week, I'm spending tonight at the movies with my boo, then learning how to crochet with this gal tomorrow.

In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite links this week:

English and American brands seem to be collaborating more than ever. The Guardian breaks it down for us.

My weekend skincare routine definitely differs from what I do during the week. Rather than the weeknight special of cucumber face wipe - moisturize - bed, the weekend version is all exfoliate (I highly recommend this!) - homemade honey face mask -  moisturize - circulate - thermal water. Luckily, Chanel recognizes these, um, kinda' dramatic differences and has cheekily released different products for Day, Night, and Weekend.

Barbora Veselá is a shoe designer inspired by eroded rocks and geological maps. thisispaper has created a beautiful video of her work. You're going to stop what you're doing and watch it. (Bonus: learn how shoes are made!

Someware, a California-based home and lifestyle store, sells handmade products from artistans around the world. In!

And speaking of California, this article on Baggu CEO Emily Sugihara has me craving the land of milk and honey in a big way. (Refinery29)

Savannah Buffett's Ex-Pats

I'd like to be friends with fellow London blogger, I Want You To Know. She's freakin' cute!

And speaking of awesome blossom ladies, I finally met the lovely Alva Leigh this week. A Nashville gal with a heart of gold (and a perfect flannel button-up, I might add), living in the heart of London and tinkering on the piano. We shared a cheap bottle of white, and that pretty much settled that. 

Have a great weekend, team!
