LINKLETTES - The week in sexy. 

If You Only Read One Thing: 

LET GO OR GET DRAGGED 

I found this via Kat @ Rock n' Roll Bride. Never thought I'd be reading an auto-parts blog for advice but I'm happy I did: 

"If you stop doing anything, especially because you are afraid whatever you do might be wrong somehow, you might as well just pack it in. You can’t be a creative pro without being a risk-taker. So let go of the fear and just do."

Husting & Insights:

  • HATERS GONNA HATE:  Do women get more hate on the internet? The Cut blog at New York Magazine

    “A woman's opinion is the mini-skirt of the internet...Having one and flaunting it is somehow asking an amorphous mass of almost-entirely male keyboard-bashers to tell you how they'd like to rape, kill and urinate on you.”

    I've never been a dude so it's hard to say objectively, but having an opinion and voicing it on the internet as a women has been a little bit of an open invitation for comments about everything from my appearance to my education to my family history...cute. Thoughts?
