What are you up to this weekend? We’re visiting my twin sister (and sharing a few photos on Instagram). Also, did you watch the Democratic debates this week? Looking forward to talking politics this year. Hope you have a good one, and here are a few fun links from around the web…
Self care tips for toddlers. “Get plenty of sleep. It might feel decadent to sleep when you could be screaming, but those 10 minutes in the car on the ride home from the grocery store will leave you refreshed for the next 10 hours.”
Three breakup hair makeovers. (Such fun before-and-afters.)
A map of the areas most often missed during handwashing.
A woman stopped in the subway does an amazing Shallow cover. Wow!
This advice column makes me laugh.
Did you know about the Pittsburgh parking chair?
The ingredient that makes any cake look like it came from a bakery.
Plus, two reader comments:
Says Colleen on taking yourself on dates: “Solo movie burrito-eaters unite! I will always remember one Friday after a rough day at work, I went to see Trainwreck and snuck in a burrito. I was surrounded by couples on dates, and as I quietly ate the entire thing (WITH guac), I kept thinking ‘You guys are doing it wrong!’ Lol.”
Says Fernanda on on what do you like about yourself: “For the first time in my life, I am proud of myself. Fully. Without any excuses. I am 35 years old, I have a Ph.D., I am a lawyer and a mother. Married for 13 years. And I suffer from anxiety, depression and ADHD. I love cartoons and have piercings and tattoos. I read philosophy, but I also like to read about silly things. I wear the clothes I want, without worrying about social conventions. I’ve never felt so beautiful, enlightened and happy. And there are days that suck. But I fully accept myself, the good, the bad and the ugly. To be the best example for my two-year-old daughter: that she is her. And this is beautiful.”
