Happy Friday Everyone!

Are you planning a long-term trip? We’re jealous! Here are Lonely Planet’s top tips for you!

The Guardian found it! Thermal Tights: the only way to deal with cold winter weather.

Here at Karina we love it when you love yourself and feel great in your skin – so why don’t you write a love letter to yourself and leave it somewhere you’ll forget about only to find it when you most need it?

Because it’s the last little bit of winter here in NYC, we’re going to squeeze every bit out of it that we can by making these Pumpkin Spice cupcakes with Browned Butter Frosting.

This renovation project makes us wish we could find a really ugly house and turn it around into our dream home.

William Deresiewicz wrote a response to the age-old question: “What Are You Going to Do With That?” 
It is one of the great testaments to the intellectual—and moral, and spiritual—poverty of American society that it makes its most intelligent young people feel like they’re being self-indulgent if they pursue their curiosity. You are all told that you’re supposed to go to college, but you’re also told that you’re being “self-indulgent” if you actually want to get an education. Or even worse, give yourself one. As opposed to what? Going into consulting isn’t self-indulgent? Going into finance isn’t self-indulgent? Going into law, like most of the people who do, in order to make yourself rich, isn’t self-indulgent? It’s not OK to play music, or write essays, because what good does that really do anyone, but it is OK to work for a hedge fund. It’s selfish to pursue your passion, unless it’s also going to make you a lot of money, in which case it’s not selfish at all.

We love looking at these Legendary Stars Relaxing at Home!

If you’re looking to feel really good about life, we suggest making a list of the things you love that are free. Take a peek at Tiny Buddha’s 50 Things to Love In Life That Are Free list for inspiration.

This hit a little close to home for our comfort… good thing spring break is around the corner!

Are you headed to Europe soon? First, we’re jealous. Second, be sure to take a look at The Ultimate Family Guide to see if you’re missing something on your itinerary.
