Weekend Links + Reads

I have neglected this section of my blog terribly. Which is sad because it’s one of my favorite sections. I’m a firm believer to read outside of social media. To actually take the time to scroll through various websites and read things that strike my eye rather than accept whatever pops up on a newsfeed. I come across so many interesting things I wouldn’t see if I never strayed from social media platforms.

Autumn is here so you may need this boucle funnel-neck coat.

Serial’s third season has started.

Anthropologie’s new autumn collection is something worth swooning over.

Shirley Jackson’s gothic horror novel from the 1950s, The Haunting of Hill House, is coming to life.

Interesting creature mash-ups in a pastel palette.

A cute (and funny) staycation romance.

How the word “OK” became one of the most popular phrases in our speech.

This gorgeous 2019 lunar calendar.

A canvas tote for all your market needs.

The deliberate awfulness of social media.

What have you read this week? Leave a comment below to let us now.


Shayna Shattelroe

25 years old. Mama to Maddox. Word weaver. Lover of love. Coffee addict. Psychological science student. 

A woman of curious nature, my name is Shayna. I am wild & reserved. Humbled & proud. Quiet & clamorous. Strange & familiar. I live in the trees of New England typing away as lifestyle blogger. You can always find me with a coffee cup in one hand and a book in the other.

Blogging since 2005, I’ve had an innumerable amount of blogs on a vast number of platforms. Finally, I’ve found one to call home: The Lovely Cicada. This blog is a piece of myself I extend to you.
