Weekend Reads: Links to the Strange and Beautiful

Is it the weekend already?? This week seemed to zip by! I'm so excited to be off work for the next two weeks before school, teaching, writing, meetings -- insanity -- begins again! Do any of my readers have helpful hints/tips for balancing work and a crazy schedule with fun, blogging, relaxation, etc? I would love to hear your ideas!

My upcoming weekend includes:
  • On Saturday I'm going on a river float trip with some of my lady-friends.
  • I'm going to try and take more photos of things that randomly inspire me.
  • I am looking forward to trying out a new oatmeal-pancake recipe for Sunday brunch.
  • I hope to read some more Emerson essays.
  • I'm kind of dreading the start of football season [ssshhhh...don't tell my boyfriend]
  • I'm going to listen to this album, and this song in particular, on heavy rotation! I am obsessed!

Fewer links this week, but fantastic stuff nonetheless:

Frou Frou Fashionista is a lush blog dedicated to lingerie...I'll take one of everything, please!

5 Rules for Life is an inspiring blog where people post their "5 rules" for living a good life. You can submit your own rules, too.

Historical Ziegfield Follies is for Alfred Cheney Johnston photos, Ziegfeld Follies pics and info, other pics of Ziegfeld Girls, and historical items related to all things Ziegfeld up to 1931.

See Spot Sell is an online project exploring the history of dogs in advertising, and this site is filled with fascinating vintage ads [and of course cute dogs!]

♥ There is just something so familiar, cozy, and down-to-earth about American fashion. Get your state-side inspiration at Urban Weeds, a street style blog out of Portland, Oregon.

Between the Covers: Women's Magazines and Their Readers at London Metropolitan University is an exhibit that charts the evolution of women's magazines from the 17th century to the present day -- pretty much my *dream* art exhibit!!

Enjoy my dears!!!!!
