Novella Carpenter’s essay on why she eats meat was fantastic; while I respect people who chose to be vegan, I don’t think it’s the ideal choice for everyone and certainly not me. So I appreciate such a well thought-out piece.

I think these prints are super cute. I’m already trying to think if I can make one fit with my decorating plans.

These soakboxes are darling. Lorna’s Laces yarn, hand cream, Soak wool wash, and Essie nail polish, all color-coordinated. I need to find a reason to reward myself with one.

A great post from Sal at Already Pretty about the tension between individualism and conformity., and that it’s okay to long to fit in as well as to stand out.
