Links That Light Us Up

19th Edition

Hello Woman on Fire!

This week absolutely flew by. Can you believe that it’s already November? Anyway, these links are on fire so let’s get straight to it!

Best New PSA- The United Nations is shedding some light on gender inequality in its  latest PSA. Crafted by Ogilvy and Mather, this campaign uses actual generated search results from Google. These disturbing statements are further proof that we’ve got more work to do globally and domestically to ensure the rights of women.

Best Neck Warmer- On a cold night, what could be better than a faux fur infinity scarf?  The Women on Fire team went gaga over this new accessory from Anthropologie.

Best Fall Bite- We’re back with yet another delicious roasted veggie creation. Jessica from How Sweet It Is has done it again with her autumn arugula salad with caramelized squash + pomegranate ginger vinaigrette. This for sure has the Women on Fire stamp of approval 🙂

Best Glass Ceiling Break- It’s another historic moment for women. Check out the latest painting of the only four female U.S. Supreme Court justices in our history.  #notoriousRBG

The Female Supreme Court Justices are looking Sassy- Women on Fire couldn't love this painting more!

Best Spirit Lifter- We challenge you to watch this 1:30-minute video all the way through without smiling. There is truly nothing better than a simple act of kindness.

Best Baby Picture- Queenie Liao has turned her son’s nap time into a new photo project called Wengenn in Wonderland. We think these might win for cutest baby pictures.

Best Way To Shop for Charity-  The ‘everything store’ has just changed the charity game big time. What if we told you that Amazon is now going to donate 0.5% of every purchase to the charity of your choice (of participating charities)? All you have to do is make sure to shop through the Amazon Smile link!

The best new way to shop for a good cause- Amazon Smile

Best Meal Plan- Nothing is worse than having to throw out spoiled groceries. Plan To Eat is a new online meal planning program that helps you combine your recipes from different sources, organizes them throughout the week, and then creates a grocery list. Sounds pretty genius to us. Let us know if you give it a try!

Hello Women on Fire!!

It’s our favorite day of the week. We love Wednesdays because today is the day we share all the goodies across the web we’ve been gathering for you all week. Hope you can take a 10-minute break to sit back, enjoy and dream!

Best Scented Buy- If you have yet to experience the scent of Capri Blue, now would be a good time to invest. It leaves your house smelling clean, and comes in an adorable mercury glass jar.

Best Beauty Products- We just LOVE products, especially trying new products. Get a good rundown of the latest and greatest in beauty from Buzzfeed via Pinterst.

Best Bite- Your looking at a picture of tres leches cupcakes from Sophistimom. We’ve been drooling over them for hours. If you’re looking for more, don’t worry she has a cookbook too!

Best Way To Get Unstuck- Nothing like a friendly reminder to keep the creativity flowing. Thanks to Islam Abudaoud for this phenomenal print! (He has copies for sale.)

Best New Movie- Totally in love with Lake Bell and her new movie. Nothing like a female comedic lead trying to make waves in a male-oriented profession. You go, girl!!

Best Back Story– Ever wondered how the Crayola Crayon became the best? So did we, until we read this story from DesignSponge.

Best Bucket List- We think that your next trip could be from this list on TripAdvisor.

Best Buy-A-Pair, Give-A-Pair- We know Warby Parker isn’t new to the eyeglass game, but we forgot how beautiful their frames were. And on top of it, someone in need gets a pair of glasses in return for your purchase.

Best Double Trouble- Is it obvious that one of us is in the market for new glasses? Well our other favorite company that is churning out gorgeous frames is the company called Aframes. AND- with every purchase they provide Vitamin A supplements to 3 children in need. Social entrepreneurship is the future, and we love supporting brands that practice it.
