Friday Distractions -- Random Links & Recipes Bookmarked

Ready for the weekend? To help you pass your Friday here are the highlights of what distracted me this week* online, what I bookmarked that I hope to one day eat, and a picture.   

"My secret for long life is simplicity, work and enjoyment." Smart words spoken by the graceful Maia Helles - watch the video this quote is from and be inspired. (via 101 Cookbooks)

I must get to NYC's Transit Museum to see the Miss Subways exhibit. (via Courtney)

I hope Malala Yousafzai survives and thrives. Laura Bush's opinion article on her October 9 shooting was great; I especially liked the last paragraph. Note: As for her recovery? So far, so good......

"I still strongly believe that women can 'have it all' (and that men can too). I believe that we can 'have it all at the same time.' But not today, not with the way America’s economy and society are currently structured." Anne-Marie Slaughter's Why Women Still Can’t Have It All

Regardless of where you stand politically "You Don't Own Me" is a really well done PSA.

Graduate School Open House

I visited an awesome graduate program today! To feel most confident, I channeled Blair Waldorf with this super preppy and girlie outfit. I promise my collar was not actually popped on-site.

Also, I'm not sure why Target was selling this top but I know why it is on clearance.
