The Lovin' Linkful

Fashion advice from my favorite fictional heroine, the perpetual-six-year-old Eloise. (The Gloss)

This explains a lot: the Talent Slut Matrix. (HowAboutWe)

"25 Everyday Things You Never Knew Had Names," including the scientific name for man-boobs (gynecomastia). (Buzzfeed)

Artist Meghan Boody cites her Tribeca apartment as being Alice in Wonderland meets Being John Malkovich, complete with hidden staircases leading to secret tearooms and a silicone sculpture of a girl trapped inside her glass coffee table. Yeah, totally so is my dorm room. (NYMag

Courtesy of the Jane Austen Society of Australia, a list of slang from the movie Clueless - thank you, Australia. (JASA)

A list of hipster baby names. Not that any real hipsters would look at a baby name website so grotesquely mainstream. (nameberry)

Apparently, Wuthering Heights was kinda controversial when it was released in 1847. Here's one of the nicer reviews: "How a human being could have attempted such a book as the present without committing suicide before he had finished a dozen chapters, is a mystery. It is a compound of vulgar depravity and unnatural horrors." Funny, I don't remember any critics wondering why Stephanie Meyer didn't kill herself before Edward gave it up to Bella. (The Telegraph)

One of my life mottos (courtesy of Tracy Jordan) is "dress everyday like you're gonna get murdered in those clothes." Obviously this list of "25 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up Every Day" is going to have to do some edits to put that gem in there. (College Fashion)

So how much is too much to spend on a pair of silk trousers with large exotic birds screened on them? (All Saints)

How to dress like you're starring in a John Hughes film. Perfect, considering I've wanted to be Molly Ringwald in The Breakfast Club since I was a preteen. I'm always showing up places with sushi while wearing riding boots and diamond studs, always asking people if they wanna see me put on lipstick without using my hands. No one gets it. (Time Out New York)

Your leggings are making you fat. (Daily Mail)

Thanks L-ann :) I'm glad you enjoyed the links. I think there's another gem from Tracy that was something like 'live every day like it's shark week.' I don't know what that means exactly, but I think I agree.

Honeyboney - I didn't even notice your typo! I don't have the sharpest eyes sometimes :) I was near the Utica/Syracuse area, how about you? There are some hidden gems up there - but they can be REALLY well hidden sometimes haha :)
