Is it me or does this week feel extra long? Maybe because last week was a short one with President’s Day. Maybe because I’ve been on the road this week. Maybe because I keep going to hot yoga at the break of dawn. Either way, I’m ready to wind down for the weekend.
For those of you who feel similarly and could use a quick break, here’s a list of my favorite go-to blogs for a little pause from the grind of work and life (when I’m not catching up on The Holly & The Folly, of course).
For when you want to figure out what to make for brunch this Sunday…
- Cookie & Kate: Cookie and Kate is one of my favorite cooking blogs. I dig her style – whole foods, not afraid of the occasional indulgence or yummy cocktail, but very afraid of processed or artificial ingredients. Another great along the same lines is Heidi Swanson’s 101 Cookbooks.
For when you’re jaded with the current state of our political system…
- The Borowitz Report: The New Yorker’s hysterical news satire. Andy Borowitz takes the political events of the week, maintains a shred of the actual events, and tells a whole lot of truth through fiction. With pieces entitled “G.O.P. Warns Obama Against Doing Anything for Next Three Hundred and Forty Days” or “Rubio Abruptly Departs G.O.P. Debate After Low-Battery Warning” you’ll get a little bit of the news and a lot of humor in a minute or two of quick reading.
- Nonprofit with Balls: The title says it all. Author Vu Le shares his take and his stories on the nonprofit sector with a big dose of humor. While the “balls” in the title actually refers to the many balls nonprofit employees need to juggle, the blog also is written with a fair amount of irreverance and bravery. You hearty souls that work in the nonprofit sector will love it.
For when you just want a few pretty pictures…
- The Sartorialist: Scott Schuman’s blog on street fashion that he kicked off in 2005 hoping to shine a light on the interplay between runway fashion and real life. He’s a brilliant photographer, so aside from a snapshot of real people’s fashion adventures, you’ll get a lot of soulful shots peering into the lives of his subjects.
