Happy weekend! I was a bit behind on reading this week trying to play catch-up from a week with pneumonia and then trying to work this week despite my doctor’s recommendation that I take it easy. Does he not know about my trip to New York for a blogger conference where, gasp, Rachel Zoe, Lauren Conrad and others have been named as featured speakers? Clearly not. Anyway, I digress. Enjoy my favorite reads of the week… and, PLEASE, share any links you think other women would enjoy reading as well!
