Good Reads: The Best Links This Week

Y'all, it sho be the weekend.

We're probably going to binge on House of Cards tonight (season two, you're amazing), then head to this place for brunch, then I'll probably bite the bullet and do my taxes. I'm already laying on the floor, kicking and screaming, just thinking about it. Being an expat is hard, you guys.

Whatever you're up to, have a great weekend!

It's a small world, after all! (ABC News)

Sweet Dillie the deer! One of my favorite animal stories, maybe ever. (National Georgraphic)

You've got to be kidding me with these Sophia Webster baby shoes

Really loving the work of LA printmaker Chris Turnham. (Miss Moss)

I've got my eye on these handmade booties from Jane Sews Winter 2014 collection (they're based in South Africa).

Thinking of trying the #100happydays project. Have any of you done this?

Just getting a little work done before the weekend starts. (Heavy)

Big questions: I'd really like some new sandals. Do I go classic and buy Birkenstocks, or opt for these ZARAs?

"Cat Adorably Begs For Food" pretty much says it all. (Paw Bonito)

Eat your veggies! (Science Daily)

My favorite food blog has just re-launched! Congrats on the very pretty new design, Sprout & Pea!

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.

Seeing New York through the eyes of photographer Jamie Beck. (Ann Street Studios)

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!
