The Five Senses
What Grandma Wore, gorgeous clothing from throughout fashion history. 
Illustrator Helen Green. She recently illustrated literary heroes Tinder bios in The Washington Post, but her illustrations of pop stars and celebrities shine best. She also has a great love for David Bowie. 
George Saunders on writing dark and uncomfortable moments. 
Beginnings: The Breakthrough Moment. Stories about how artists, writers, actors, and directors made their break, including Tony Hawk (pictured above), Martha Stewart, George Clooney, and Dita Von Teese. 
MGMT's most recent album Little Dark Age. My favorite song so far has been One Thing Left to Try which sounds like it's right out of the 80's. 

What I'm Reading

I read An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. It's a young adult fairytale about a painter who accidentally paints mortal sorrow into the eyes of a fairy prince, thereby being summoned away to stand trial for her crime against him. It was a fun little summer read. 

I also took a look at a list of 11 anthologies for YA lovers (all with amazing book covers), how to let love go, a Boston-based story by local writer Allegra Goodman, the awful mammoth (or people's opinions about you) vs. your authentic voice, and the frustration, beauty, and irony of falling in love
