Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! Mine’s been good so far, though plans for an active Sunday have unexpectedly changed, so I guess that leaves a lot of time for reading and relaxation.

For your quiet moments, here’s this month’s round-up of links that caught my eye in August. Enjoy!

  • A fascinating look at Marissa Mayer, Yahoo’s chief executive and controversy-magnet {Vogue} | Surprise, surprise: her decision to pose for Vogue angered some people. Read about that here.
  • Are too many options a bad thing? An argument for constraints {NY Times}
  • I’m really iffy about these¬†new additions to Oxford Dictionaries Online. Funny how “twerk” becomes a legitimate word only after Miley Cyrus makes it famous, by the way…¬†{Quartz}
  • Breathtaking photos of the Himalayas in Nepal by Berta Tilmantaite. This is my new favorite website. {Let’s Travel Somewhere}
  • This video of Ashton Kutcher’s acceptance speech at the Teen Choice Awards got a lot of buzz this month. Loved his advice on building your life. {YouTube}
