This Week's Best Stuff on the Internet

My friend Nora's amazing book came out last week, and I've been binge reading it between the 3rd trimester naps my body is forcing me to take. It's so honest, funny and poignant, just like the woman herself. Plus, her use of the word hidey-hole is spot on (wish I could tell you on what page, but I couldn't find it, so you're just going to have to read it for yourself). Do yourself a favor and get your mitts on a copy. 

Check out these stunning photos from a friend's recent trip to Cuba. I wanna go!

Beer for women! I couldn't hate this more. 

Ever wonder what it was like to be Prince's private chef? Of course not, but this woman was and boy oh boy does it sound weird!

Maybe it's just as we've all suspected: Is Gwyneth Paltrow wrong about everything?

What it's like to be a 13-year-old girl, right now. This made me all sad, but then I wondered if a 33-year-old woman reading about my 13-year-old life back in 1995 would've been sad for me, too.

How the American diet has changed in the last 40 years. Hint: less canned, more fresh. Less veal, waaaay more high fructose corn syrup.

How do you raise men who do housework? A very interesting conversation.

Hope you're having a fabulous holiday weekend. Here's what I did last year-- for sure the most patriotic thing I've ever done on Memorial Day. Not proud to admit that, but it's true.
