Happy Weekend + Links I Love

snowy dayHappy weekend, everyone. Yesterday, I finally watched Gone Girl and I can honestly say it’s one of the best movies I’ve seen all year. Have you seen it?! It seriously messed with my head and Rosamund Pike’s performance was absolutely brilliant. Ben Affleck was also pretty amazing. Now, I am dying to read the book. Maybe I’ll pick it up this weekend.

How’s your weekend looking? Whatever you’ve got planned, I hope you have fun and stay safe! If you’re in the mood to catch up on some reading, here’s a roundup of my favourite reads from around the web this week…
