- Jeremy and I are both currently obsessed with Game of Thrones. I get nervous that's it is not going anywhere good but the story telling is so compelling that I just can't help but watch. If you are fan of the show you might get chuckle our the houses rebranded in to major corporations.
- I'm really enjoying the current movement of just letting kids be kids again (i.e. stop trying to wrap them in a protective bubble or turn them in to a prodigy). Here's another great article from a physician encouraging parents to relax, because our kids probably aren't going to end up in the pros.
- Another parenting post: What Every Kids Needs to Hear but Most Parent's Aren't Saying. I struggle with this, my childhood was rough, and I want to provide my children with a better one. I, however, don't want to ruin them by coddling them too much.

- Vogue did a fun tribute to the best bangs of all time. For as long as I can remember I've had a thing for bangs. I get tired of them and grow them out, but then I always decided I want them back. I haven't always had the the best, or even good bangs for that matter, but I do enjoy them.

- Have you seen Peter Som's Kohl's collection yet? It contains some really great pieces, most of which are under $50. This multi colored striped maxi dress would be perfect for the summer. While this black and white colored blocked dress would work for any season and could easily be dressed up or down. I've never tried a romper, but this one looks so classy that I almost want to give it a chance.
