Happy Friday. I am logged off but wanted to share this week’s reading because I saved so many links. I decided to try something slightly different this week and split it up into reading and shopping categories. I always try to include a nice mix, but hopefully this makes it easier to navigate and make decisions about what you’re consuming, pun intended. If you like this new format let me know. Wishing you all a great weekend.

Here’s the best of the week… – Jess
