weekend reads {october 16&17}

Hello, hello, hello! Can you believe we're already halfway through October? I've had a crazy week: I flew back from Toronto on Monday, caught what Maxim had and came down with the flu + then totally messed up my knee running. Last night I went to the launch party of Meet The Curator (more to come), and today I'm watching the Redskins (#HTTR). 

Anyways, I'm NOT looking forward to DC hitting the 80's this week. Just as we're entering true autumn, Mother Nature plays this cruel prank on us. If you need me, I'll be sweating in over-the-knee boots + a (vegan) PSL. 

And with that, here's some of my favorite reads from this week:

The secret apartments of New York City's Public Libraries 

Nasty Gal and #GirlBoss circa 2014 

The world of instagram husbands // warning: video below is SO crazy accurate that Maxim was in tears of laughter.

The rise of Russian cheesemakers 

Women LITERALLY run the world 

For all the females in this world who are done with mansplaining 

Profile: Joanna Coles (#CareerGoals)

In 2015, work started on more new barriers around the world than at any other point in modern history // Read this on a desktop. Incredible reporting from the Washington Post

As always, I read on the metro everyday with Pocket, an offline article-saving app. And I'm obsessed. Follow me for my recommendations.
