Friday Link Love 03.

j. crew jeans, boyfriends jeans, relaxing in bed, sunday blues

What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be hunkering down in my bed and trying to get over my cold/sore throat. I’ve been battling it all week and hoping it would quickly run its course. I’ve got my tissue boxes and cold meds set up right next to my bed, and hot tea just a few steps away. I do have one fun thing to look forward to- my friend’s 25th birthday dinner. If you also plan to cozy up indoors this weekend, here are a few links for you to peruse!

– I really liked this Buzzfeed article on how to write your first book. They interviewed a bunch of different authors about the experience of writing their first book and the answers are pretty interesting.

– Have you read Gone Girl? I loved the book and I’m pretty excited for the movie version. Turns out they’re completely changing the ending of the movie!

– This is what happens when you find Jennifer Lawrence’s cell phone in a cab (or is it? I really can’t tell if this actually happened!)

– As always, suffering from a serious case of wanderlust over here. This list of 52 places to go in 2014 is giving me plenty of ideas.

– Speaking of wanderlust, I’m pretty envious of Jane’s recent trip to Jamaica. Oh how I’d love to get away from this snowy city right now!

– If you follow on me twitter, you’ll know that I totally have a girl crush on Lupita Nyong’o. I haven’t watched 12 Years a Slave yet, but I still hope she wins all the awards at the Oscars (yes, all the awards, even the ones she’s not nominated for).

    • Thanks Hope. I feel you’re feeling better too!

    Aww, hope you feel better! My husband got food poisoning a few days ago. He’s on the mend now but we’re going to have a relaxing day watching movies and playing video games :)

    • Thank you Jenmarie, I finally do feel better. I hope your hubby is fully recovered and that you had a good weekend!

  • I read that Thought Catalog story and was wondering whether or not it was fake, as well! Sounds pretty true though, and I think it’s so cool :) I hope you feel better soon, girly!

    • Thank you Caroline! I’m still so curious about that Thought Catalog story- if it is true, it’s pretty amazing!

  • I’ll be sure to add Little Women to my reading list! I haven’t read Gone Girl yet, but I’m hoping to before the movie comes out! I wanted to also read Vampire Academy before the movie, but I’ve already bought all the books I need for next month … ahh, the struggle :p

    • I hadn’t heard of Vampire Academy- thanks for telling me about it! I will have to check it out. Seriously- so many books, not enough time! :D

  • I guess you never know with those comedians, but it would be cool…

    Hope you get some rest, kick that cold and have fun celebrating with your friend!

    • Thanks Lydia! I’m feeling better now and all in all, it did end up being a good weekend :)

  • Love your links! Lupita Nyong’o’s red carpet style this season has been amazing. I hope she wins all of the awards to : )

    • Thank you Shenneth! I’m so excited to see what she wears to the Oscars!

  • Jessica

    I am suffering from some serious wanderlust right now too. I would love to get away for a few days.

    • Me too, me too. I guess looking at pretty pictures of faraway locations will have to do for now!
