hey guys! man, i’ve hit the ground running since returning from holiday. it feels great, and surprisingly good to be busy after 3 weeks of basically just lying around and eating. i’ve been taking photos of some pretty rad local places for something i’m working on, and rediscovering Cape Town as a veritable tourist. FYI: people treat you really nicely when you have a camera and they think you’re from out of town. or maybe that’s just south africans? well, you guys should come visit. it’s beautiful here.

onto those distractions.

i wanted to address a comment that was left on yesterday’s post asking whether it was sponsored – and the answer is: no, not ever. i don’t do sponsored posts. everything you see here is something i have discovered, or have had submitted to me, and that i personally like and want to share with you. i have nothing against sponsored posts! they can be done amazingly well and i have personal blogging heroes who ace them. but right now they’re just not for me. that said, if i ever did one i would always let you know.

  1. Another lovely round up!!! I worship Tavi, so that and the smooshy cats took the cake this week!

  2. Hahaaa these are so good. I instantly had to check out Tavi Gevinson on the Coveteur. I watched the birds and bees video via Brain Pickings and favorited it. And yes I think I have telephone anxiety, shaky voice and blanking out, but I’m like that every waking moment. Oy anxiety. Thanks for the joy, Miss Moss!

    So I took the dive yesterday and got a (long) bob. My hair has been uber long for 4 years now… so it’s a big change but I love it! Also the motivating factor is that I am in fact coming for a visit to Cape town! I leave in 10 days from Toronto and could not be more excited.

  4. Talk about distraction! All of these links make for some great internet exploring. These are my favorite posts that you put together. So good!

  5. Awesome! I love how varied the midweek distractions are :)

    Speaking of women dressing as women and fighting in the civil war….the novelist Laird Hunt just wrote an incredible novel on the subject called ‘Neverhome’
