For Your (Weekend) Consideration

Hello, Friday!  What was up with this week? Between the chilly temps and the never-ending rain, it was a rough one all around.  I am SO ready for the weekend, which works out perfectly, since I'm taking an extended one to get in some beach time in Delaware.  First time!  In Delaware, not at a beach.

My brother told me about a pygmy buffalo that lives in apartment in Somerville.  I haven't decided yet if it's real or some quality photoshopping, but either way, it's adorable.

Novels by women don't often win the big literary prizes.  Even less often (as in, almost never) do books about girls or women win, regardless of the gender of their author.  One novelist is gathering data to show this, and hopefully promote change within the literary world.

These simple double strap sandals from Loft look like a summer favorite.

Actress becomes successful, her on-screen love interests become older.  After looking at this take on the careers of Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Scarlett Johansson, it's easy to see why 37-year-old Maggie Gyllenhaal would be deemed "too old" to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man.

Caitlyn Jenner broke the internet this week and Laverne Cox had some great insight into it.

Simply sectioning off a grocery cart, with areas designated for fruits and vegetables, will make people buy more fruits and vegetables.  How cool!  And how easily manipulated we are!

Amy Schumer continues to amaze.

Someone invite me to something fancy so I have an excuse to buy this gorgeous Badgley Mischka gown.

Finally, a reminder that the US Women's National Team kicks off their World Cup play on Monday night against Australia.  I'll be watching and you should too!
