Weekly Links: Fall Has Arrived!

Hey there! It's been a while so let's get back up to speed. Since my last post I've:

- Met Hunter Hayes
-Pierced my ears (19 years and I finally did it!)
- Had a cold
- Watched too much Netflix
- Listend to One Direction's new song more times than I'd like to admit
- Felt the first glimpse of Winter in Vermont

Pretty exciting stuff. I hope you had a great week(s) as well!

There's a phenomenon at Starbucks. No, I'm not talking about the return of the Pumpkin Spice latte- even though it is one of the greatest things about Fall. What I really mean is the whole How-could-you-possibly-spell-my-name-wrong epidemic. Well guess what everyone, the joke's  on you because Baristas actually do that on purpose! (Well, maybe)

Mac and Cheese is always great, but when it's from Annie's the comfort food is taken to the next level. Annie's is an organic company that creates super tasty pastas and snacks. This week it was announced that General Mills bought Annie's for $820 million. Die hard fans of Annie's products were  not only devastated but also caused quite the uproar on the company's Facebook page. I'm interested to see how General Mills upholds Annie's organic and natural ingredients in tact during this change.

Chis Thompson is a popular vlogger from California. His most recent video is undoubtedly a touching one. Chris asked his viewers 'If you could choose to be gay or straight, what would you choose?' .  Not only do I love the way he worded his question, but I  also respect Chris for pushing people to do this. Chris collected input and then read some of his viewer's comments, many being so powerful and sad they made Chris- and myself- cry.  I strongly recommend watching the video by clicking here. You can even watch the video that prompted Chris to make this one here.

 Fall has finally arrived so go out and enjoy it. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

  1. Hahaha, oh Starbucks.
    I had a gift of a 'Dora' cup the other day, close enough, I guess!
