I have no love for Daylight Savings Time—it always feels as though it takes weeks for my body to get adjusted to even just that one pesky hour of difference. (Today is no exception.)
But I have a happy announcement to make this morning! Thanks once again to everyone who filled out the first ever Indigo+Canary Reader Survey. It is now closed and ready for me to spend some quality time mulling over all of your excellent comments and suggestions. I used Random.org to select a winner for the $25 Spirit Beauty Lounge gift certificate, and the winner is respondent #9, Anne Burnham! (Anne, look for an email from me to confirm receipt of your gift certificate.)
And here are some link love goodies for you:

This has been making the rounds, but if you haven’t seen it yet, a recent study links drinking soda with a higher risk of depression.
A bummer: Fig+Sage has ended their lovely natural beauty blog. I hope they keep the archives up for a while, because they’re a great resource. (And I wish them the best!)
I’ve been following along (although haven’t yet attempted) Bon Appetit’s 2013 Food Lover’s Cleanse, but it looks delicious. And I think I may try it. Pomegranate walnut oatmeal for breakfast? Sign me up.

Tomorrow is December, and I can hardly believe it. I’m terribly behind in my gift shopping this year, possibly because I’ve been working so hard on our 2012 Holiday Gift Guide. I’m planning to make up for lost time this weekend, and I hope our gift guide helps you do the same! Here’s what I’ve been reading+enjoying this week:
- I really needed to read this great message in my friend Rosie Molinary’s newsletter yesterday: You have to teach people how to treat you.
- Well+Good NYC has a great post about workday stress relief, and it’s perfect for this time of year: 8 Deskside Remedies for Freak-Outs at Work.
- This post on No More Dirty Looks about the “holy grail of skincare” cracked me up! One hilarious nugget: “…let’s face it, that woman clearly has a direct line on some magical unicorn hair…”
