What are you up to this weekend? I’m excited to welcome my college freshman home for a few days, which lessens the sting of the approaching winter storm and Sunday’s Daylight Savings clock reset.
I hope you have something to look forward to, and that this collection of intriguing links and happy things helps you ease into that weekend frame of mind.
My favorite finds from around the web:
- 20 Must-Read Nonfiction Books by Women. In case you’re looking for something to read for Women’s History Month.
- My daughter makes these crispy chewy chocolate chip cookies so often I think it’s fair to call them our house recipe.
- Speaking of favorite recipes: 8 beautiful, practical cookbooks you’ll turn to again and again.
- Get 3 audiobooks with a 30-day free trial from Audiobooks.com! This is a great way for beginning listeners to experiment with the genre.
- Endurance: Shackleton’s lost ship is found in Antarctic. Incredible! (Check out our related book list: Take a trip to the icy Arctic with these 8 awe-inspiring nonfiction books.)
- I’m loving these cheerful spring florals! Also loving that J.Crew brought back their original schoolboy blazer. File both under “classic for a reason.”
- A Path to Well-Being: Recognize the Importance of Time. This weekend’s time change might be a good opportunity to examine your daily rhythms.
- My girls have loved their Ipsy subscription for trying new makeup and skincare, something that’s especially fun to do when the seasons change.
- Why Everyone Is Always Giving Unsolicited Advice. “That is what “likes” and comments and “friending” has done to our brains. We all think we are Ann Landers.”
- This Rifle Paper Co. swimsuit (yes really!) is sooo dreamy, as are these darling pajamas. (I love my Summersalt suit: this is the style I have; I chose the long torso option.)
- Little Free Library Launches Mobile App. Very cool!
