Have your cake.

Happy weekend, pals.

What are you guys up to this weekend? I'm taking Metro North up to New Haven to see my mom and brother's regatta (oh la la). On Sunday, while we're driving back into the city, my mom and I are checking out the Mad Men exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image. And I'm hoping to convince her to have a negroni at my favorite Italian place in my neighborhood that night for dinner. 

Around the interwebs this week:

Will always have a soft spot for Gilbert Blythe.

The most modern, beautiful quilts

Snapped up a pair of these this week and they're wonderful. 

From Spinster author Kate Bolick: "Having an affair was the best mistake I ever made." 

And why "spinster" can't be a state of mind.

Against chill.

On the very real friendship in Frances Ha: "Don't mistake your best friend for a mirror."

And famous women on female friendship.

The etymology of poetry.

The very, very, very wonderful Iris Apfel.

Cheers xx
