Friday Favorites

What a long, strange week it’s been! What are you up to this weekend? Jules and I are both excited to relax and unwind in our own ways…while she communes with nature on the Olympic peninsula, I’ll be learning how to make macarons at this French cooking school and binge watching the new season of Orange is the New Black. (Jules, bring me back some s’mores and I’ll save you some macarons, ok?) Now let’s get the weekend started with a few boredom-busting links!

  1. The Bilbliotherapy article is fascinating! I guess to a certain degree I already do this as an avid reader: my taste changes a little based on my mood. Great stuff, thanks for putting it up here πŸ˜€

    • Oh absolutely! And what you’re reading can totally affect your mood, too. I’m glad you found it interesting πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks so much for the mention! that was really sweet of you. I have heard a little about bibliotherapy, but that article is quite interesting. And that slushie might just be the best thing ever. Yay summer!

    • You’re so welcome, Lindsay! It was such thoughtfully written post – I really enjoyed reading it.

      So glad you found the bibliotherapy article intriguing too! And I cannot wait to try those slushies myself. Yummm!

    • Oh yes, it was a really fun class! They are so much trickier than I realized, though. They might be too much work to recreate at home (maybe for a very special occasion!) but they turned out great…and sooo delicious πŸ™‚
