Happy Friday! We’re thrilled you’re joining us for our favorite links of the week. Without further adieu…

This honest essay about “navigating singledom” by Megan McCarty is a must-read for anyone who has ever ended a relationship. (So, basically every last one of you.) We love her honest approach to writing and we’re so excited to see her contributing again at Apartment 34. 

Last week, we encouraged you to check out the apartment of SNL funny gal Aidy Bryant. This week, West Elm is giving us a look inside the NYC home of Leslie Jones… one of Aidy’s hilarious cast mates. It’s such a fun space!

Mascara is one of those beauty products that you rarely think twice about. You buy a brand. If you like it, you keep it. However, what if there’s something better out there? Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere put 5 popular mascaras to the test… we can’t wait to test out her top pick!

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of joining Dove on a “trend crawl” around LA’s hotspots. We learned about their new Dry Spray — and are total converts! Sarah Sherman Samuel covered the festivities beautifully. Check out her recap here!

Do you ever wish your Instagram photos could be off of your iPhone? Preservation & Creation just launched a new collection for just that purpose. You can pull images directly from your Instagram account and they’ll print them in a beautifully bound book. This might be a game changer…

Finally, our founder is one of Viyet’s featured tastemakers. Head over to their blog to find out her favorite Instagram accounts, learn what inspires her most, and even get the insider scoop on what trends she expects to see next. (You might be surprised!)
