A Few Good Links

I loved this round-up of great sources for home accessories on Lark and Linen. Jacquelyn has excellent taste (and an excellent name, I might add 🙂 so I definitely trust her recommendations! Some of the stores I actually hadn’t come across before, so I’m psyched to check them out.

This post from Jamie Meares of Furbish Studio was quite interesting. I really respected her take on the NY Times article about which she wrote the post, entitled When Blogging Becomes a Slog. My take on it – I think anything has the potential to become a slog, when it shifts from fun hobby/escape to “work”…even something that initially you loved, like blogging (unfortunately). What that means is different for everyone, but I think it’s important to keep in mind. Read the article and post!

I’m really liking this slightly modernized version of the classic ivory cable knit sweater for fall.

Pretty much head over heels for the festive fun that is the new Society Social lookbook for 2014. Roxy and her team just knock it outta the park when it comes to styling their amazing furniture pieces and accessories. Check out page 11 – so good.

I LOVED these Lena Dunham videos that Cup of Jo posted. They made me laugh, they made me think, they just made me happy. Lena Dunham is such an original and so genuine. The second I saw the videos I realized I hadn’t pre-ordered her book yet, a situation which I quickly rectified. Cannot wait for September 30th when it comes out!

    Great links! I checked out Jamie's post about YHL. I am so sad that they stopped blogging, and I hope they come back, but it doesn't seem likely. I think that blogging for a living definitely has its pros, but I can't imagine how hard it has been for John and Sherry as they've had two kids. They didn't slow down at all with either of their baby's births; so much for maternity or paternity leave! (I don't have kids, but I just get tired thinking of all the DIY projects they do.)

      They were keeping up an absolutely insane pace of posting! Especially since all of their posts were tutorials which had to be actually performed, photographed, THEN blogged. As you said, it's exhausting to even think about. It's not like they were just throwing up a few easy posts here and there like many bloggers (myself included), do. I think they will come back but in a much more restrained, hobby-like way. I think it's great that they evaluated the situation and did what was right for them, despite the pressures of having such a large audience and being somewhat "famous."
