Article Round-Up: May 5-11

Good morning — I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a good start!

Today is gray and rainy here in DC (although we did get an impressive thunderstorm last night, which yours truly luuuuuurved), so it’ll be an opportune time to go see a movie. Great Gatsby: I’m lookin’ at you, kid!

In any event, though, I plan to do quite a bit of reading. For those of you who also love your weekend reading, this week’s article round-up is below — grab a cuppa joe and enjoy!

    Haha, I couldn’t imagine a better way to kick off the weekend than with carrot hugs! How cute! Those tattoos, however, are a completely different story. To say they’re cringe-worthy would be a massive understatement. Yikessss.

    I hope you’re able to see Gatsby tonight! It follows the book to a ‘T,’ which made me happy, however the modern day hip hop music seemed a bit…out of place? Nevertheless, it was a fun show—the sets, costumes, and cinematography were beautiful!

    Happy weekend! ❤

      Amen! I loved the carrot hugs, and the tattoos are hysterical — I mean, if this isn’t proof that there are people with more money than sense, I don’t know what is. 🙂

      Happy weekend to you too, m’dear!

    Ton of great articles, Lillian! I particularly loved the HuffPo article about nutrition and breast cancer, and the regrettable tattoos, although they made me cringe.

      Oh, the regrettable tattoos cracked me up! The ones with the misspellings and grammar mistakes are particularly awesome. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
