Links I love and what’s on my nightstand.

My favorite finds from around the web:

Smart everyday cooking tips from celebrity chefs. Practical, actionable tips you can start using immediately.

Marie Kondo and the cult of tidying up. “Ms. Kondo’s book has captured the imaginations of readers around the world at a moment when many people seem to have reached a tipping point of clutter in their lives.”

The most well-read cities in America, at least according to Amazon’s sales data.

13 of your favorite books if their titles were honest.

What I’m reading this week:

Books about Paris, by sheer coincidence. I read the first Madame Chic book on the plane last week, and just picked up this next book in the series from the library. (There’s a third book slated for October publication.)

And then The Little Paris Bookshop and A Paris Apartment just happened to arrive on my doorstep.

Most popular on the blog: 

My summer uniform. I’m obsessed with uniform dressing but I haven’t taken the plunge—till now.

The satisficer’s guide to NYC. I’m surprised but delighted that I could introduce so many of you to the word “satisficer.”

7 favorite books in translation to read this year. “Why read books in translation? My friend put it well when she quipped, “I’m stuck in my head, I read to escape my own head, and my head happens to be an American head.”

Have a great weekend!

  1. Thankful for your posts from this week! They have been the highlights on many of my days. I’m loving your summer uniform, and the 2015 Reading Challenge – even though I’m late to the party. 🙂

    Cheers to a great weekend!

    The honest book titles lists are always fun! I especially liked the one for “Infinite Jest.”

    Out of curiosity, what did you think of the first Madame Chic book? It has me intrigued, but since we are overseas and without access to an English language library, I’m hesitant to purchase the book. The reviews on Amazon weren’t terrific, although I found Jennifer’s Tedx talk quite interesting.

      I enjoyed it, but I also read it on an airplane in less than an hour if that helps you evaluate whether it’s worth buying. I shared the highlights from the wardrobe section in the ten-item wardrobe post from earlier this week.

      Bummer, I thought I shared a link that would go through. I’d recommend googling it and seeing if it lets you view it if you click over from search results.

    Would love to know what you thought of the Madame Chic book(s).

    I enjoyed them and will definitely read the 3rd one when it comes out.
