Have a Beautiful Weekend & A Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & A Few Lovely Links

IT IS STILL THE WEEKEND here, for today is a holiday, and so this week’s Notes from the Weekend are not [too] late, especially for those who are spending a LEISURELY Monday . . . Last week, in the news & current events, Victoria Beckham celebrated her 40th birthday, and the world lost a LITERARY great. Here, we touched upon the topic of deciding where to live, released a guide for summer MUSIC festivals, and had a thought-provoking DISCUSSION about makeup. Who was ever to know that the topic could be so divisive and controversial on facebook? This week, there are, of course, a MILLION beautiful things planned, including a look at the work of a talented photographer who wished to remain unknown, inspiration in the form of denim and marble and a little of our lately . . .

Hope you’ve had/are having a beautiful [long] weekend, and in the words of Sofia Coppola, “Here’s to beauty and living well, and taking the time to enjoy it.” xR.
