Weekly Reads #5: Oscar de la Renta, Buddhism and Emojis


Hello lovelies! A new Monday means a new list of interesting Weekly Reads and an immense amount of caffeine required in order to survive the day. I don’t really know why, but a massive headache made me a lot less productive today (except for placing an order on the ELF website, I’m literally dying to try their brushes). Anyway, speak to you soon. Hope you enjoy the articles and leave me other cool links in the comment section below 🙂

1. How an 18th-Century Philosopher Helped Solve My Midlife Crisis (The Atlantic)

Worth reading because: The story goes like this: a 50 year old woman starts life all over again, and finds herself in a midlife crisis, not knowing who she is or what she wants anymore. But somehow, while yoga and Prozac don’t do their job in making her feel better, she discovers David Hume’s philosophy and its tight connection to Buddhism, unlocking some very interesting theories. So if you are interested in philosophy and history (and have some time to read this long article), I’m sure you will love it.

2. When Oscar de la Renta danced with Ava Gartner: The Story Behind Oscar de la Renta Spring 2016 (Vogue)

Worth reading because: It’s a short, charming story of how Oscar de la Renta met the fabulous Ava Gartner and what was the actress’s influence on the latest collection of the designer.

3. Lifestyle: My Tips for a Productive Sunday (Lily-Like)

Worth reading because: Lilia reminds me why I love Sundays so much and also gives us some great advice on how to make the best of these days. Fitness, blogging and good food sounds great, don’t you think? So you will definitely enjoy her suggestions (and her gorgeous pictures).

4. Round Table: Are Emojis Ruining Us? (Man Repeller)

Worth reading because: If you want to know what’s a vintage wink, how emojis affect our ways of communicating and why do we use them so often, you might want to read this awesome dialogue between the editors of Man Repeller. A funny, but straight-forward round-table, giving you something to think about.

5. How to Motivate Yourself To Workout When You Just Can’t (Coming Up Roses)

Worth reading because: In this article, Erica gives you some very well-received tips on how to get motivated to exercise and move your ass at the gym, especially when you don’t feel like doing anything. Rainy weather and shorter days can make you a bit depressed, so there’s nothing better than a good workout session to get your endorphins flowing 🙂
