Reading Material

LAUGH: If you haven’t read it yet, you need to read Alexandra Petri’s hilarious version of Sunday night’s Presidential debate in The Washington Post. I laughed so hard I had to stop and start reading like seven times.

IDEA: Need some inspiration? Today, Style Blueprint has a great story about a woman who celebrated turning 40 by taking 40 people who shaped her first 40 years out to lunch.

TRAVEL: I’ve never been to Portugal and for some reason lately I keep seeing it everywhere. This is a sign, right? I should clearly be planning a trip to charming villages,  cobblestone streets, and decadent seafood dishes. (This is how I imagine it.) In the meantime, I’m reading about how it’s a “Magical European Country” and “the next great stylish getaway.”
