The Week of February 17th

Hey y'all...Happy President's Day! With all these snow days it seems like I haven't had a full week in the office in weeks, but no complaints here! Now, let's check out some links that I've been really into since, like, yesterday...

A R T S   &   E N T E R T A I N M E N T
I know this has been all over the news but if you haven't seen it yet, please watch Ellen Page come out in her very honest, endearing and thought provoking speech at the Las Vegas conference for gay rights.

In lighter news, does anyone else watch The Killing and have a major crush on the relatively "under the radar" actor Joel Kinnaman? If not, here's a recent interview on his roles in his two new movies Robocop and Easy Money: Hard to Kill to help sway you. 1. Robocop doesn't sound that bad now, 2. who knew Joel was Swedish and 3. who knew he dates Olivia Munn?!

I can't get enough of Vulture's GIF-caps of the Olympics. They make missing even the most exciting competitions totally worth it.

You gotta watch this really cute charity pitch from our boys Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. I'd be so awkward if I won and went on the "besties double date" with them...

Three things Bill Gates wishes he could've done 20 years ago. Totally in agreement #2 and #3.

Meet the young go-getter Ashley McCollum (26), VP of Business Development and Communications at Buzzfeed.

We have so many dating apps (and even mistress apps), but where are all the monogamy apps?

This girl is happy she didn't meet her husband in college and I couldn't agree more.

10 things our parents were right about from The Thought Catalog.

S H O P P I N G   &   S T Y L E
As long as this weather keeps up we might as well stock up on some winter sale items. I love thisthis, and this from Madewell, J.Crew and Club Monaco.

But seriously, when is it spring? I've just barely started to peek the spring fashions and already I want to wear this little dress!

Alex from Dreams & Jeans shared one of my favorite inspirational quotes as of late. It comes from Ira Glass and is all about trial and error, persistance, and pushing forth toward your best efforts, cheers to that!

Gabrielle Union's Mexican themed Galentine's Day party makes me want to have a Mexican night at my apt for all my gals, too! The colors are amazing and I love the little Ken dolls on the table!

I WISH I had room for a dining room table (or a dining room in general) in my tiny apartment because this $90 DIY table is amaze.

That's all folks. Have a great week!
