A {lil} Link Love



+ 23 insider hacks from a Sephora employee for all you Sephora lovers. #smartcookie

+ We all know sitting all day at a desk does horrific things to your body and this article explains why YOGA is such a great way to restore that damage. I'm a huge yoga fan and can tell a difference when I practice regularly.

+ I've never been in combat and do not know anyone who has lost a limb at war, but I can only imagine how painful it is mentally and physically. Back in 2012 Michael Stokes began trying to give our veterans back a lil bit of themselves when he started photographing them in confident and sometimes provocative poses. His work is incredible [albeit Not Safe For Work] and I highly suggest you check out the Dailymail's article featuring many different veterans.

+ Hollywood divorce is nothing new, but recently some of the 'could make it through anything' couples are choosing to end their marriage. On Monday, we learned about Gwen & Gavin's divorce and I couldn't help but feel sad. Obviously I don't personally know them and I 100% understand that divorce is something personal between two people yet I couldn't help but feel a bit let down. I thought they were going to be the couple who made it in Hollywood, I actually had just commented to a friend about them just last week. 13 years is a long time and I truly hope they can weather the storm with as little upheaval as possible.

+ Have y'all heard the term hangry? Do you get hangry? I go from okay to hangry in a split second and it is something I could never explain, until I read this article. So glad science supports the hangrys of the world :)!

+ How sweet is this story? I came across it last month and kept forgetting to share it with y'all. God bless the incredible male nurse and the rest of the hospital staff for giving a sick child a moment of joy and fun.

Umm that Sephora hacks article is a must read! Thank you for sharing! And SO sad about Gwen and Gavin's divorce. I loved them together! It's hard staying together in regular life so I can only imagine how much more difficult it is in Hollywood.

Can't wait to read the sephora hacks story - I can totally see how yoga would be beneficial to us that sit all day so I'm going to read that too!! Happy Wednesday girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

i am still in shock that they are divorcing! they had made it through so much! everyone is getting divorced in hollywood! such a bummer.

Michelle said...

My celebrity break-up shock was Miranda and Blake. I've followed them since they got married and sadly they haven't been at it that long. Or how about Ben and Jen...another long time marriage with children ending. Anyways, being in the spotlight must have more pressure than us ordinary folks can even imagine. Gives us all something to talk about. From Waiting on Wedneday...you and I link up at a lot of the same parties. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

want to know something weird when i read that glucose/hunger article? i don't get hangry anymore since i cut grains out of my diet. i get hungry but not crazy hungry where i get the shakes/i can't think/i get angry. hmmm now i must go research that.

Laura Marie Keenan said...

I was a little sad over the Gwen & Gavin break up too! Fun little side note... She was just in Montana and visited my in-laws ice cream shop! A cool little celebrity sighting!

Caitlin Elizabeth said...

I definitely need to start doing yoga more, I can definitely tell the difference! And I was bummed about Gwen & Gavin too, along with the others this summer. Even though we don't know them these were still long marriages that, as you said, seemed like they could make it through Hollywood.

Cory (playdates and prescriptions) said...

I'm very interested in the Sephora story.
And somehow i missed the news about gwen and gavin but i was super sad about Ben and Jenn!

Leslie said...

What great links! thanks for sharing!

Kay R. said...

I read the story with the male nurse a couple weeks ago and it made my day. Glad people still have such big hearts - THE PICTURES WERE PRECIOUS!

Katie Elizabeth said...

All of the celebrity marriages falling apart lately are so sad! Ben and Jen really surprised me - I loved them together :( Off to check out the Sephora hacks! Great round up!

Laura said...

Illegally Blonde said...

The Sephora hacks... I died and went to beauty heaven!

christina @ the new mrs said...

I can't believe I'm saying this because of my love for Hollywood but when I heard everyone talking about Gwen and Gavin I honestly thought that they had broken up a few years ago -- oops! Can't wait to read that sephora link!

Jessi @ Jessi's Design said...

ok sitting here with my coffee, reading and loving everything except that divorce news - what the what? ugh so sad! Boo!

Jen said...

All this divorce news is crazy! I really never thought Gwen and Gavin would call it quits.

Shay from Great, Now What said...

How did you start yoga daily? Right now I'm a weekly kind of girl, but would love to start practicing by myself at home. Any tips?

Queen In Between said...

Where have I been....had not heard about Gwen & Gavin! I thought they would make it too but I was most surprised about Ben & Jen. Was NOT surprised about Miranda & Blake! :)

Kristen @ See You In A Porridge said...

i am seriously ridiculously irrationally upset over all these celebrities getting divorced. so sad :(

The Girl who Loved to Write said...

MakeMeUpMia said...

All of this divorce lately is just depressing, I couldn't believe Gwen & Gavin! I'm going to read that hangry article right now!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I feel like EVERYONE is separating lately! Even Kermit and Miss. Piggy have. No joke!!!!! Google that shit.
I most definitely get hangry. On the regular.

Kayla MKOY said...

Ahhhh I'm clicking that Sephora link right now!!!! I love posts like this. Hope you're well!!! I've been so bad about commenting but I think I'm back in the groove.

Lisa { Showered With Design } said...

I was so sad about gwen and Gavin!!! I never care much about Hollywood love, but I loved them together!

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

I'm usually not surprised by celebrity divorces, but Gwen and Gavin definitely did. I can't imagine trying to keep a marriage together in Hollywood with crazy schedules, traveling, and probably endless temptations. And that Sephora hack - genius :-D

Emily said...

I definitely get hangry moments! lol So many good reads! Going to check out the Sephora hacks!

Shelby | Recent Somethings said...

If Posh and David Beckham get divorced next I'm never getting married again because this seriously seems like THE year of divorces (mine included ha).

Julia said...

I was seriously shocked about Gwen and Gavin! Of course not knowing them personally it doesn't devastate me or anything, but it is a sad situation and very surprising. Plus anytime a marriage ends it's a sad thing!

Melinda Mitchell said...

Hangry all the time!
Sweet nurse to marry that little girl.
Divorces are always sad. :(
