Happy weekend, everyone! A little housekeeping first — and apologies if you already read this in Royals Round-Up — we have added a new event to our Book Outings (it’s not REALLY a tour; we wish we could come out and meet you all, but it’s all dependent on where our publisher would like to send us, basically). We will be at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, on SUNDAY, April 19th, at 1:30pm. Our panel is called Fiction: Famous By Association, with a signing to followIt’s moderated by Heather Havrilesky, and the other panelists are Christopher Noxon and Shanna Mahin. (Tickets are required for this event, and we will post a link when they’re available; they’re only $1, which is a processing fee.)

You can always get more info on our events on our Events and Signing page here. (We’re also coming to NYC on April 7th, and DC on April 9th. Please come out and say hi!)


– Let’s read about 18th century masquerade balls! (All Things Georgian)

– Ooh, or the history of anti-aging products! (Into the Gloss)

–I LOVE this piece in Tatler (of course) about Guest Book Etiquette. ONE MUST KNOW THESE THINGS.

The Hollywood Reporter has released its annual list of Top 25 Stylists, which I always love — not for the ranking bit, as much as because I always love reading who’s been styling whom.

– I wish I had been following Canada Reads this entire week!

– I guess Katie Holmes IS dating Jamie Foxx. Is it weird that I kind of LOVE THIS? It seems so random. (Lainey)

– Speaking of romance, DID WE KNOW THAT LUPITA MIGHT BE DATING COMMON? I want them to get married and have very beautiful and talented children. (Jezebel)

– I am secretly obsessed with Cosmo’s hair/make-up hacks. I thank them, for one thing, for teaching me that I’d been using bobby pins upside down my entire life. This go-round is particularly good. De-aerating mousse!

– I also love this, in The Telegraph: Mini food fad sees tiny – but edible – meals cooked on toy hobs. TINY THINGS!

– Speaking of cooking, the National Journal has interesting photos of the White House kitchen through the years. (The ones of everyone prepping for the Easter Egg Hunt are really good.)

– ALSO speaking of cooking, I totally want to make these homemade Mint Milanos despite the fact that (although I am a decent cook) I am a terrible baker. (Cupcakes and Cashmere)

Julianne Hough has a lifestyle blog now? Well, good for her. (Celebitchy)

– Flavorwire dives into the mess that is the Emmys rules for determining what is or is not a comedy.

– Pajiba’s March Madness is devoted to determining the greatest pet peeve of all, primarily because they’re annoyed by how many websites have bracketology in March. Sorry, dudes! (I find it quite funny.)
