What a great picture of Lana Del Rey?!

  • Thought Catalog is pure fun! This piece on How To Be Fabulous pretty spot-on and tongue in cheek at the same time
  • Can Creativity and Productivity coexist? The Daily Muse seems to think so. Check out the article to read how
  • Man Repeller examines a culture (generation?) of irony, humble brags and guilt by association
  • Speaking of the humble brag, this article in the New York Times is too good to pass up. False humility is on the rise and social media is aiding its spread!
  • Curvy is the new buzz word… The Cut singles out (pun intended) why Curvy is not created equal
  • Dream big or dream small, but please dream. This piece on Clutch talks about the shaming of people’s goals. Very interesting.
  • Deb Perelman snagged a book deal (and a husband) from her blog. A case for blogging if I ever saw one.

x Have a Frolicking Friday!
