♦ When I started this blog over a year ago, I felt really lucky to find a name that summed up my version of cycle chic. (It was also a play on San Francisco Bike Party's rallying cry.) But since then, I've learned how culturally loaded the term pretty is. As this writer explains, pretty is a set of skills. Via Bitchtopia

 “I said I was surprised to hear her say she didn't know how to run a business... ‘Weren't you making a lot of money?’” New Yorker profiles are always such a delight, but this portrait of Eileen Fisher is just beyond beyond.

♦ Must watch: The Grand Budapest Hotel, trailer for the new Wes Anderson movie. Squeeee!!!! Via YouTube

♦ I have a no-food policy for Bike Pretty. It's not that I hate food (quite the opposite!) but there are so many other blogs, cooks, writers, and Instagram accounts that do it better. But I feel terrible keeping this yeasted waffle recipe from you any longer. I make it almost every weekend. Best homemade waffles ever & perfect for lazy people. Via Smitten Kitchen
