16 Cool Things You Need to Click On Today

My birthday is tomorrow! Yes, I'm a Valentine's baby, which throughout my life, has vacillated between being a blessing and a curse. Word on the street is that the day will start off with breakfast in bed, followed later on by a sure-to-be-heavy-on-the-sprinkles-and-gel-frosting cake. I actually said I didn't want a cake this year (#healthy), but this seriously distressed my cake-decorating-loving daughter so...there will be cake. 

We'll hang out as a family and then head to dinner that night. Sunday is supposed to be single-digits cold, so I'll be hibernating. (And by "hibernating" I mean "trapped inside with two bored children and not actually sleeping but how awesome would that be.")

Have a great weekend! Here are some fun links to check out...

• This dress is SO pretty, SO feminine, SO spring-y, and the shape is super flattering. (And surprisingly reasonably priced!) Get in my closet.

• Also loving this dress. The bright pink color is gorgeous and I feel like I'd get so much use out of it.

• I'm reading this much-hyped book right now. Have you read it yet? Seriously, I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN!

• This made me think (and made me want to do better): How we unintentionally hurt our kids when we respond to them the wrong way.

• Khloe and Kim Kardashian talked to me about wedding hair.

• I freaking LOVE Cindy Crawford (and Marie Claire) for doing this.

• Here's a phenomenal read about our culture's current penchant for online shaming--and how one dumb tweet can alter your life immensely. (h/t Laura)

• These sunglasses though! (I'm clearly on a major pink kick right now...)

• The worst errands to run with kids. Yep.

• This hack for putting on a duvet cover BLEW MY MIND.

• When four sisters share one bedroom.

• This is such a good, simple idea: Teach kids kindness by having them make cards for sick children.

• What this woman has to endure just because of her job is insane. And why is no one doing anything about it?!

• Videos of soldiers surprise-reuniting with kids always get me. I cried about 2.5 seconds into this video and didn't stop until the end.

And in case you missed it, this week I...

• Gave Starbucks a piece of my mind.

• Shared some Valentine's-inspired fashion and beauty favorites.

Also, you need those sunnies. And now I wish my sister and I + two other sisters shared a room.

Oh I should definitely do the cards with my daughter, I know she would love to do something nice for children who are sick.
