Jennifer Szalai explains why she despises the term “guilty pleasure”: http://nyr.kr/1gWx5o5
“The guilty pleasure seems to me the distillation of all the worst qualities of the middlebrow—the condescension of the highbrow without the expenditure of effort, along with mass culture’s pleasure-seeking without the unequivocal enjoyment. If you want to listen to Rihanna while reading the latest from Dean Koontz, just go ahead and do it. Don’t try to suggest you know better.”

pattern & postcard 2014 calendar by stationeryboutique
can’t think of a clever little gift for your office co-worker? how about a new 2014 calendar? this one features trendy patterns on sheets that become postcards — that way, you can reuse each month’s pretty patterned piece! how cool is that?! i know i’d love one for my desk :)
Nice holiday gift ;)
