What I’m Reading

antipasta lunch

Warmer weather is finally in our sights, and the open-toed shoes I keep reaching for each morning are reminding me that my feet are in desperate need of some attention.  I love Lauren Conrad’s list of mani/pedi pairings.

How Clutter Affects Productivity.  Ugh, I have so much clutter.  And this article is enabling that.

Chanel No. 5 perfume costs $38/ounce, while Hewlett Packard printer ink will set you back up to $75 for that same small amount.  This is the story of how a teenager figured out that switching the font to Garamond on printed papers can save organizations thousands of dollars.  I love smart people.  At least a couple of designers, however, say it isn’t going to work.  Haters gonna hate.

I read about the 10/10/10 Rule in the January issue of Real Simple, and while I haven’t tried it yet, I think it’s promising.  I’ll keep you posted.

Tracy made vanilla almond milk and I’m temped to give it a go.  I’ve had two recent kitchen fails though, which always shake up my confidence.

And for fun, Can You Tell These YA Books Apart?

  1. Thanks for sharing the “How Clutter Affects Productivity” link, it was an interesting read! I like the idea of just having one folder on the computer desktop home screen; I have a billion things there atm, it’s rather crazy. I’ve already read the font switching saves ink article (it came up on my fb newsfeed), and thought it was a neat idea.

  2. “Everyone’s tolerance for clutter is different”– aka, it’s okay for me to live in a state of organized chaos. My piles work for me, they’re not clutter 😛

    Also, having not read two of those YA novels made me either a Hufflepuff or an adult in that quiz. I’m alright with both.
