I hope this Tuesday finds you well. Here are some of my latest desires and distractions. 

1. 24 Things Only Girls Who Are Constantly Hungry Will Understand. I related to it all too well, all except the ones about Snapchat and Annie’s mac and cheese. I’m not a fan of either. (BuzzFeed)
2. I’ve had my eye on this beautiful lasercut dress from Anthropologie for weeks. I originally wanted to hold out until mid-October for a bat mitzvah in Sarasota, but when I saw it in person in Seattle over the weekend, I knew I had to get it and wore it that same night to the wedding we were going to. I received a boatload of compliments, so it was totally worth the early splurge. I can’t wait to wear it again soon. (Anthropologie)
3. Now that People Magazine’s exclusive rights to Lauren Conrad’s wedding photos have lapsed, they’re available for the whole world to see. I want to copy everything for my own wedding, including the whole being a billionaire CEO thing. (Cosmopolitan)
4. I’ve mentioned Car2Go before, a revolutionary car-sharing service, but Brian and I tested it for the first time on our trip and loved it. I can’t say enough great things about it. So easy to use and so affordable too. It’s been very liberating to only use a car when we’ve needed one. The next time you travel anywhere, check to see if Car2Go is available and sign up. You’ll be happy you did. (Car2Go)
5. I only ever use concealer for special occasions, not because I don’t like it, but because I don’t really know what I’m doing with it. Here’s a lesson on Concealer 101. (The Glitter Guide)
6. Since he hasn’t had to shave everyday on this vacation of ours, Brian asked me if he could grow a beard. I told him no. I’m not a fan of facial hair, but this beardmaster sure does some nifty things with his. Unfortunately for Brian, my answer is still no. (Distractify)
7. Canada’s Ketchup chips and poutine are by far and away one of the highlights of this trip. Here’s a closer look at Canada’s many delicacies. (Thrillist)
8. As we wrap up our trip, I found these tips by the expertly-traveled Anthony Bourdain to be both amusing and insightful. I agree with just about everything except his checked-luggage rule. I pride myself in my ability to travel light, and the hassle of fitting a bag in the overhead compartment is way less than that of missing luggage or dragging large bags in crowded city streets. You can check out some of my own carry-on essentials here. (Esquire)
