Link Love Wednesday: Limited Too is Back!

enhanced-30175-1437505404-2Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe it’s almost back-to-school time… It feels like the summer just started. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that I want the month of July to drag on as long as possible!

This week has brought on a few exciting opportunities for me in my personal and professional life. I’m especially proud to share that I have been named Writer of the Month at Career Camel, where I regularly contribute guest articles with career and academic advice. I have loved writing for them in the last year, and look forward to writing more in the future. Check out my portfolio section to scope out a few of those articles!

My Hump Day could certainly use a pick-me-up, and perhaps yours could, too. Enjoy this week’s batch of Link Love, and as always, share some of your favorite findings in the comments section below!🙂

The year has flown by, and while I look forward to celebrating every holiday I can with my loved ones, I would like to hold onto 2014 a little longer. What are you most looking forward to this holiday season?

Link Love Wednesday: Goodbye, Google Reader!

google-reader-closedHappy Wednesday, friends! Today is June 19, which means we are less than two weeks away from the discontinuation of my favorite RSS reader, Google Reader. Ever since before I started blogging (my third WordPress anniversary was this week!), I have used Google Reader to track all of my favorite blogs, but on July 1, this feature will no longer be available. For all of my fellow nerds, July 1 will be a very sad day. This week’s links not only focus on our usual array of eclectic topics, but on how to cope with the end of Google Reader!

  • Are you following blogs on Google Reader? Check out BGR’s list of the best RSS readers to switch to before July 1. (I know I need to start moving feeds over, myself!)
  • Andrew from Shut Up Dad compiled a bachelor party checklist that everyone needs to consult, bachelor or otherwise. From fun hats to fanny packs, this bachelor will be one you won’t soon forget.
  • My best friend sent me this list of four life lessons that one blogger’s mother taught her, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. (Always pack your liquids in a Ziploc! I am a stickler for that one.)
  • This article poses the question, “How ready is America for gay-themed advertising?” A few of the bigger brands have released some LGBT-related ads that have set off a debate among consumers (read: bigots) on how visible the gay community should be in commercials. It is definitely an interesting article no matter where you stand on the subject, although I personally don’t understand what the big deal is!
  • Disney is cornering the market on Day of the Dead. This article discusses some of Disney’s more controversial choices, including its presence in the Mexican holiday and the transformation of the latest princess, Merida.
  • I’ll admit it – I’m just as guilty of taking selfies as the next 20-something girl! Of course, our love for snapping photos of ourselves has not gone unnoticed by marketers.
  • International Picnic Day just took place! Even if you missed it, Gala Darling poses some must-read advice for throwing the ideal picnic.
  • Here is a throwback to my indie music-loving early teen years! I just rediscovered this instrumental song by The Album Leaf and I can’t get enough. Enjoy!

Link Love Wednesday: From Glazed Donut Breakfasts to Tin Foil Hats

Rottenecards_10544754_ktxbvprgkfHave you missed me?🙂

Link Love Wednesday took a brief hiatus over the past couple of weeks as I began adjusting to a full 40-hour work week, but fear not – this brand new feature is back! This set of links ranges from recent ad campaigns to articles on employability, and many topics in between.

  • For recent college grads and others looking for employment, check your social media to make sure it is employer-friendly. This article talks about what you need to look out for on your own Facebook page. (Just this morning I listened to a Chamber of Commerce member talk about how important this is, especially for young people!)
  • On a related note, Thought Catalog posted a list of things we have to stop sharing on Facebook. I think we’re all guilty of a few of these, but what are you most likely to overshare?
  • No wonder obesity is on the rise! Dunkin’ Donuts is about to launch a new glazed donut breakfast sandwich, and they’re claiming that it’s not even that bad for you! (I don’t know about you, but I can’t even imagine pairing a glazed donut with hash browns.)
  • Swiffer released an ad campaign featuring Rosie the Riveter, but because consumers are complaining that the ads are sexist, Swiffer is taking them down. Are consumers becoming too upset over nothing, or are these ads truly guilty of perpetuating women-in-the-kitchen stereotypes?
  • Tin foil hats may actually make it easier for the government to read your mind, according to Business Insider.
  • As someone who will be moving to a new apartment in a month, I found this quick article about apartment utilities especially helpful.
  • Mental Floss composed a list of 11 completely bizarre books that really exist. My favorite is Whose Bottom?, a children’s book that illustrates several animal butts, although I strongly believe that any child whose parent gives him or her that book may need Child Protective Services.
  • To lighten your day: this website helps you figure out what your baby with ____ will look like. Perfect way to come across as creepy on a first date!

What great articles and websites have you stumbled upon in the past couple of weeks?

Link Love Wednesday: And So It Begins!

cat-office-internet-comic-640Happy Wednesday, everyone! Today marks the first day of May, and in honor of the new month, I am rolling out a brand new feature on this blog: Link Love Wednesdays!
