This and That

Pretty, spring-y pastels to brighten up your Tuesday! Check out the layers and texture mash up in that outfit. Margarita-hued pants, a nubby sweater, BLUE leather jacket (!!) and a classic wool topper. Kind of obsessed.

I saw this book on Pinterest the other day and was intrigued. In it, the author apparently goes on a quest to participate in the US Memory Championship. A) I kind of love that there IS a Memory Championship, and B), I’m so impressed that a previous champion memorized 1528 digits in an hour. Meanwhile, I can’t even remember what I had for lunch yesterday. It sounds pretty fascinating…check out the NYT review of the book here.

    Wow, that book sounds interesting. I love that there is a memory challenge, I would’ve been so good at that during my college years, but now I am so forgetful!
