Beyonce Art History is my new favourite tumblr. (via Naiomi)

Fit & Feminist on women-only races.
"My enthusiasm for this race clearly illustrated for me that it wasn’t the “women-only” aspect of most women’s races that I had problems with. I’ll admit that part of me disliked the idea that women needed to be coddled and cajoled into doing something athletic by having their own super-speshul races, far from all the scary boys and men, but the truth is, being surrounded by thousands of women was actually one of the things I dug most about doing the women’s races. No, it was everything else about the races that left me feeling like the human embodiment of Feminist Hulk."

I've been getting more impatient and frustrated with Koko lately, so it was great to read this (via Coley Tangerina).
"But there are also many moments when I have no idea how I'm going to make it until their bedtime. The constant demands, the needs and the fighting are fingernails across the chalkboard every single day."

Confession: I'm a book hoarder. The Power of Purging Inclusively gives excellent advice on how to give your overflowing bookshelves a clear out. (via Yes and Yes)
Why any Georgie Pie return will flop, as predicted by a former Georgie Pie worker.
I quite like viewing the annual photos of the Costume Institute Gala at the Met. There are always divine gowns to swoon over. This year the theme was punk, which made for some very cringe inducing outfits. Attendees either had some bizarre interpretation of the theme, or ignored it altogether (which actually is kind of punk). But a rare few got it right. My favourites were Sarah Jessica Parker, Giovanna Bataglia, Coco Rocha, Paloma Faith, Doutzen Kroes and Jamie Campbell Bower.
