Friday's Worthy Links 02.15.18

What a week.  We all survived Valentine's Day, I'm hoping?   Does anyone else feel that Valentine's Day, while well-intentioned, quickly turns in to a pis*ing contest on social media to prove your significant other gives the best presents?  Honestly every time I opened instagram I had to roll my eyes and quickly close the app.  And this comes from a girl who's boyfriend did actually give her a pretty spectacular Valentine's Day. :)  But then, to close out the week, we learn of another school shooting in Florida- where a single student killed at least 17 people.  It's hard to know what the right thing is to say after this kind of tragedy, but I am certain the answer isn't just "thoughts and prayers" for the families.  It's this kind of empathy, but coupled with action.  Donate to every town or better yet the Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund, and then contact your members of congress and urge them to act on sensible gun control legislation.  I think Cleo Wade said it best: "It should be hard as hell to get a gun.  Period." 

To balance out my angst, I thought it appropriate to post a lovely photo of Jane Scott Hodge's living room, originally featured here.  And now, on to weekend links...

Friday's Worthy Links:

The United States of guns- a required read for all Americans.  This is very informative, too.

A billionaire's daily breakfast allowance.  Now I'm dying to watch his documentary.

So proud of my friend Kimberly on the purchase of her NY apartment!  She shares the deets on how she saved up for her downpayment (in one of the most expensive cities in the world) here.

I hate to admit it, but I'm pretty smitten over Nicky Hilton's NoHo apartment tour

Rebecca de Ravenel, drop-earring designer extraordinaire, unveiled a fall 2018 ready-to-wear clothing collection- and I wish I could purchase this, this and this.

At a more practical price point, I'm lusting after thisthisthis, and this. Nordstrom currently has a 40% off winter sale happening, & Ann Taylor Loft is offering 50% off their sale items

Here's to a restful and relaxing weekend, filled with love.
