Best of the Looks, Best of the Books 2/14/14

2014 February 14

It’s easy to be down today if you’re single or even if you’re not, given the nightmare this winter has proven to be. There’s ice and snow on the ground, it’s frigid, and the sun is nowhere in sight. On top of that, we have to hear about love all day. Gross.

But I think it’s important to remember that Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about romantic love. It can be about love you have for your family, for your friends, for your pets, for yourself. With that in mind, I’m trying to keep a somewhat positive attitude today. I’m planning on treating myself to some pretty red lipstick (any suggestions?) and maybe a couple other things on a shopping trip after work. And I’m looking forward to a weekend packed full of yoga, coffee, food, friends, and more shopping. And a holiday!

What are you planning for the long weekend?

I think we can agree that this shirt was pretty much made for me. And it will be mine.

A cute manicure idea, Valentine’s day or not.

Speaking of nail polish, here’s a fun guide to some great colors.


Best of the Books:

I really loved this conversation with a copyeditor. It made me feel validated in the work I do (even though technically I’m not a copyeditor!).

I’m running out of steam. But I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Stay warm!
