20 Cool Things You Need to Click On Today

Work life/mom life: Two scenes from the Cle de Peau event this week (with the gorgeous Amanda Seyfried!) and two scenes from Thanksgiving
The weeks before Christmas are always so insane and I'm just starting to feel that craziness. Work is super busy (trying to bang out some last-minute projects before the holidays), and of course we're now entering the onslaught of holiday parties, present buying (and I don't even want to think about present wrapping), recitals, events, etc etc. Tomorrow we're getting a Christmas tree, decorating it, and then most likely spending the rest of the weekend trying to stop my dog from destroying it. Good times.

In the meantime, here's a few of my favorite links of the week. Enjoy!
