What better time to flip through some link love then on a weekend?  Recently, I've been saving up links for myself to read on Saturdays - I've been trying to treat my weekdays like actual weekdays.  I hope you lovelies are making time for books, coffee and sunshine!

Now for some links!

I have been loving the beejeesus out of after the jump a podcast by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge.  Lately she's been talking about work / life and I can't seem to get enough.

You know when you learn about a thing and then that thing is everywhere?  Like, when your friend is pregnant and you see pregnant ladies everywhere.  Or when you rent a car and then you notice that car everywhere.  Or when you learn about an obscure band and then you find their album.  Yes, well this is a thing and it's called The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon.  Let's see if you're suddenly seeing that everywhere!

Lastly...some magic for your earbuds...

I'm trying out a new format for link love...along with some new photoshopped goodness...please bear with me as I fiddle with my new skills...I didn't realize this looked a little fuzzy until it was too late.  Mahalo!
