Odds and Ends


1. Amy Poehler is my spirit animal. Her Smart Girls website has become one of my favorites.

2. I am obsessed with House of Cards, and as usual, I am finding myself completely attracted to a totally power-hungry asshole. (For a round-up of all the assholes I love, have a looksie.) So, I finished up Season 1 last week, and just watched the first episode of Season 2 last night. WHAT THE WHAT, FRANK UNDERWOOD. DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN, YOU ALL? DID IT? OHHMMYYGAHHHHHH

3. Did you see Lupita Nyong’o’s speech on beauty? “You can’t rely on how you look to sustain you. What actually sustains us – what is fundamentally beautiful – is compassion. For yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul.”

4. Whole Foods is America’s angriest store. Do you agree? (I see the writer’s point…)

5. As a gluten-free newbie, I really appreciate this article. Looking forward to making that pizza!

6. Adventures of a Lego photographer. These photos are gorgeous.

7. Lisa Eldridge does it again. I love this tutorial on the ultimate beautifying look.

8. Hahaaaa. Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” Emoji video. Good stuff.

    That L.E. makeup is gorgeous.

    Is it bad that I think the Underwoods have a great marriage? Like, I know they do evil things, but I do think they are a great team and really respect each other. I believe their partnership. So maybe… they’re just good actors :)

    I love House of Cards! Season 2 isn’t quite as good, but the ending sure is. Can’t believe we have to wait another year for season 3! And J. Mill, I totally agree with you. Their relationship is definitely weird and (open, if you know what I mean), but it does seem like they are true life partners.

    I just got into House of Cards as well and oh my God. Once in a while I think Frank Underwood might have a soul and then episode one of season two happens. So hooked. I’ve been totally obsessed with Lupita as well. I’d love to sit down and have a coffee date with her.

    Regarding gluten free stuff, King Arthur’s Flour is a go to for me. It works great in my pancake recipe. Also, that brand’s brownie mix is better than any that I have tried gluten filled or free.
