link love

Happy Sunday, friends! Link love is a little later than usual this week, but we still have some Sunday left to relax and enjoy the end of the weekend. The weather has been unseasonably beautiful here this weekend and we are soaking it up as much as we can before the heat and crazy humidity returns. I’m headed to a baby shower for one of my lifelong friends who I mentioned in my LA posts and I’m excited to see all of the teeny tiny things :)

Before the weekend slips away from us, here is some link love from last week.

In case you are in the mood for an ice cream sandwich, this taste test for the best ice cream sandwich might be helpful. My favorite part is the five-year-old who gives the same opinion for every brand of ice cream sandwich: “I like these.”

How many days a week do you go without spending any money? Likely not many. Even though we try to stick to a budget, zero-dollar days are so intriguing to me. Having days where we don’t spend any money would be a challenge, but ultimately would lead to better spending habits and enlighten us to how often we make unnecessary purchases, even if they are within the budget.

On the topic of money, it interestingly didn’t make the list of the 9 motivators of millennials in the workplace. As I read this article I found myself agreeing with many of the statements and motivators. Some of them are so easy for companies to enact and don’t cost anything. As the workplace demographic shifts, I wonder how long it will take for companies to change and include some of these incentives.

The wallpaper in this home is insane. There are so many pretty patterns that are meaningful to the family. All of that wallpaper reminds me of when my mom and I installed wallpaper in a tiny powder room then swore we would never do it again.

Moving to a different kind of art, Misty Copeland, the first black woman to become principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre, reenacted famous ballerina paintings and sculptures by Edgar Degas for an upcoming art exhibit and the sneak peaks are amazing. The goal of the project was to bring these iconic paintings and sculptures into the 21st century, and include the body types, ethnicities, and races that are now included in the ballet world, which were not previously reflected in art because they didn’t exist as commonly in the ballet community. It is a beautiful project and I can’t wait to see the final product.

With that, have a beautiful Sunday and a great rest of your weekend!
