August was a tough month to get through… With moving and trying to find time to read and still blog, I’m glad it’s finally over! That said, August was still an amazing month!
Don’t believe me? Just check out all the links to love below. 🙂
Read Books, Live Longer?
Count me in! A new study, reported by The New York Times, shows people who read three and a half hours or more per week actually live longer! Though there are few glitches with the small sample size and the fact that readers are typically women (who already live longer, on average), I love having another reason to read as much as I do.
New to The Rumpus
A writer from one of my new favorites, The Rumpus, recently posted a piece on The Surprising Magic of Bad Books. Focusing on the fairy magic of popular children’s books, her point surprisingly still rings true with adult novels too. Even a novel who’s only point is to entertain is still a valid source of inspiration!
Choosing the Right Indoor Plants
Now that our furniture is put together and semi-arranged in our apartment, we’re hoping to get a few indoor plants to balance out the space. But what kind should we get!? I’ve always wanted to garden and have potted plants, but I’ve never been in an apartment with enough space or sunlight to start the habit. Thankfully, I stumbled upon A Pair & A Spare’s quick guide to choosing the right indoor plants for you!
End of Summer Cocktail
As y’all probably know by now, I’m absolutely OBSESSED with all things grapefruit when it comes to cocktail hour. A new drink recipe by Sunny Sweet Days combines the citrus spunk of the grapefruit with the sweet Kinky Liqueur (another favorite). Yum!
New Song from GREEN DAY!
