If you're tired of the usual (affordable but generic) stuff from Target, TJMaxx, etc., and you have a few extra bucks to spend, this global store--partnered with National Geographic--offers some absolutely drool-worthy works of art from all over the world. Ethically sourced (whatever that means) too, it seems.
My sister--fellow lover of lists and planners that she is--texted me this link last week. As far as I am concerned, this is the Holy Grail of organizers. As far as you're concerned, I may or may not have purchased one.

Women in the World
"The Lean In Collection", curated by the Getty Images and Leanin.org...over 2500 "images of female leadership." While yes, it's always awesome for the female sex to be acknowledged by the media (and if that's not the most trite and shallow statement ever, I don't know what is, so sue me. It's late), what's really remarkable is the depiction of leadership. I mean, there are images of little girls at play, women on picnics, women returning home from the army. I'm not saying that these aren't all depicting leadership; what I am saying is that perhaps leadership is a concept much broader than I've ever considered it.

Jennifer Jones' I Heart Organizing. (Also a blog.) While this chick is way out of my league when it comes to organizing and a well-run home, she's got a lot of great ideas that seem to be pretty dang feasible. Lots of great tips and life hacks.

32 Things You Learn Growing Up--painfully, funnily true, all of it. My particular favorite: #14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry means I will never wash this--ever." You'll catch yourself chuckling ruefully--and then relieved to know that, not only are you not alone in these thoughts--you're in a very crowded room.
