Links That Light Us Up

13th Edition

Hello Woman on Fire!

The links are so good this week we won’t waste any time convincing you;-) Here we go!

Best Act of Appreciation– Isn’t it funny how sometimes just a little goes such a long way? These adorable notes of appreciation from Bread and Jam pack a lot of punch in a little package.

Best Reminder– We don’t normally like to embrace the negative over here at Women on Fire, but we ran across this article on Huffington Post titled the 23 Things Every Woman Should Stop Doing and were intrigued. Some are harder to practice than others, but this serves as a great reminder to practice self-love every day. Let us know which one inspires you to work on.

Best Girl Power Song– Please tell us that you love Katy Perry as much as we do? She blew us away last time with Firework and now she’s done it again. If you need to feel on fire in under 3 minutes, just listen to her new song ROAR.

Best Organizational Ideas– Remember last week when we told you about “back-to-school cleaning” well that goes hand in hand with re-organizing. Nothing feels better than a well-organized living room, and Design Sponge has curated a list of 18 awesome products to help you!

Best Spuds– Do you love potatoes like we love potatoes? Love would be an understatement, so you can imagine that when we discovered a restaurant dedicated entirely to our favorite starch we nearly lost it. Say hello to Potatopia, a restaurant in New York City that might just be worth planning a trip to visit, if you don’t already live there. #WIN

Best At Home Gym Builder– Working out is hard enough to schedule, so why not make it easier on yourself and try doing it at home. You don’t need a ton of space to create a great place to get your sweat on, and we found a terrific guide to starting your own at home gym from Fit Fab Cities.

Best Date Night– Whether it be your first date, 50th date, or you’ve lost count at this point, check out this great roundup of (non-cheesy!) date ideas from Wife Mom Superwoman.

Best Blondies– Gaby Dalkin from What’s Gaby Cooking? has done it again! If you are a fan of blondies, brownies or anything with sugar, we know you are going to LOVE these delicious chocolate sea salt butterscotch caramels blondies.

P.S. If you like avocados, you’ll want to take a look at her latest cookbook Absolutely Avocados.

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.

10 once in a lifetime trips from TripAdvisorTripAdvisor

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.
