Good Reads: 20 November 2015

This is a slightly blurry photo that I took when I was last in Paris in August of 2014. It was beautiful and perfect and filled with love and light and pastries, as Paris tends to be, and of course still is.

Like most life-changing events, this time last Friday we had no idea what was about to happen. I know that's how "life" goes, but it'll never cease to surprise me how one minute we can be so caught up in nothing of importance, and the next minute everything can change.

Anyway, I know everyone is feeling the same way right now but I wanted to share a photo and a couple of quick thoughts about what was, is, and will always be one of my favorite places on Earth. Paris.

Hoping everyone has a wonderful, appreciative, and safe weekend. A few links below for some quick Friday reading, most of which are much lighter in theme than this.

Wishing you and yours all the best.


one way to help.

"what would I do if I weren't afraid?" probably nothing." this piece on imposter syndrome is reading my mind.

loving ursa major's new kits, and wanting to try their natural deoderant. (their moisturizer is my personal all-time favorite.)

so much gloria steinem goodness – here she is with rgb, and here she is with lena dunham. also, has anyone read her new book?

a genius gift idea, especially for those of you who are looking to gift a little more intentionally this season.

aidy bryant's tokyo travel diary is gold.

really, really, really like the concept (and design) of this beautiful new mag.

if you're married, or would like to be at some point, did or would you change your surname? an interesting podcast on this topic. (i didn't, so i love this discussion.)

women as witches (love this).
