PSA PASSWORD ALERT: So not a fun link, but a necessary one. You might want to change your password on these sites.

CLASSY CUBICLE: Mackenzie linked to this blog the other day, and it’s a fantastic source for workwear outfit inspiration!

HONEY, I’M MOVING TO MARS: I heard about this essay written by a Texas gent who’s wife has signed up to go to Mars. No, really. I found the essay and the discussion it started really interesting.

JENNA’S OLD TOWNHOUSE, REBORN: Remember Jenna Lyons’ famed Brooklyn townhouse, as featured in Domino (who doesn’t, right?)? Well, the new owners have made some updates. She’s still a beaut. Although, her original closet will never be topped.

GET IN MY BELLY: I have a deep, undying love for chilaquiles, and this recipe looks like it would be no exception. Pin this one for a Cinco de Mayo breakfast party next month (because yes, such a thing should totally exist).

REQUISITE SALE ALERTS: Anthro is having a sale on their beautiful dinnerware (great if you need to stock up on any entertaining pieces before summer). Club Monaco is offering an extra 50% off clearance items with the code SPRING50 (somebody buy this coat — it’s only $120!!). And of course, J.Crew is also offering an extra 50% off sale items with the code FRESHSALE (I’m eyeing these beautiful woven loafers).

WORDPRESS TIPS FOR ALL: Lisa is launching an amazing book all about WordPress — Make WP Work. We’re going to eventually offer it through The B Bar as well, but if you hop to it now, she’s offering a special discount code! I’ve seen the whole thing and trust — if you use WordPress as a blogger or business person, this book is ridiculously helpful.

SALAD WEATHER: Here’s something fresh and light for your weekend: a salmon salad with cilantro and lime.

SILICON VALLEY: Are you watching this new HBO show? We laughed out loud all the way through the first episode! I’m eager to see where the series goes.

BLUSHING BRUNCH: A new take on the classic mimosa. Now in a beautiful blush color!

The story of this week is I ate and drank too much, didn’t exercise enough and now, on Friday, oof am I feeling it. This weekend I’m going to reset a bit — enjoy more time outside, drink a lot more water, and have a few less cocktails (but okay, maybe a glass of rosé). It’s hard to believe how quickly April is flying by — mid month already! Next week, level 4 of French begins, which is the penultimate class before you just go into straight conversation classes. Kind of exciting! What’s been going on with you this week? Any fun plans for the weekend?

    Thank you for giving me a reason to finally fill out my From the Deep dinnerware from Anthro – the teacups are the last part I need (need…want…whatever!) Happy weekend!

    I saw your tweet yesterday on changing passwords… I didn’t want to do it! But went ahead…just in case. I’m so bad with having good passwords.
