  1. If there is one group of people on this planet I could not identify less with it’s people who just naturally *love* to clean. Couldn’t be me. Here’s an example of what I look like cleaning:  *Picks one thing up off the floor* Welp! That’s probably enough of that! I have to make it an event; a commitment. It …

  2. My new year’s resolutions often start at odd times, and not once but twice a year. Maybe these markers of renewal are tied to fashion; maybe they’re influenced by deep seeded ties to the beginning and end of the academic calendars. It happens intuitively and without much foresight. Like a bear knows it’s time to hibernate, …

  3. March was nothing short of crazy. I’ve been burning it at both ends for about six weeks, working on four product lines and jumping into consulting again with a large last-minute project that required 9 days of shooting and lots and lots of planning. I hate seeing time fly by me without stopping to enjoy the little …

  4. Strong female leads teach us so much, like that it’s ok to have haters, drink wine before 5 p.m. and expose midriff after age 17. Most importantly, they teach us to laugh in the face of danger/the patriarchy. We collected their best mantras for success to inspire you to be the protagonist of your own life. …

  5. As the saying goes: in like a lion, out like Beyoncé. Whether you like her or not, you most definitely are on a first name basis with Beyoncé. There’s no denying her icon status. So, no “Women Who #Werk” March series would be complete without drawing inspiration from a woman whose hard work has captivated the …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Let’s face it—as modern ladies, there are a million and one things keeping us from getting the sleep we need at night. Whether it’s something small, like the sudden pressure to KonMari your house, or something pressing, like needing to wake up early to protest, sleep eludes many of us. But we don’t just need restful …

  8. Like any true adult, I cry constantly. It’s very casual and part of my regular schedule; don’t be weird about it. Like most women, I’m naturally intuitive. It’s a skill we picked up on to like, I don’t know, survive? But like few special souls (I absolutely DOUSED that in sarcasm), I’m referred to as an “empath.” I hate that …

  9. “I don’t want to give the world a guy that can’t iron his own shirt,” she said.   “I won’t give your future wife a husband who won’t do the dishes,” she said. My mom took extreme pride in raising my sister and me to be independent. We grew up unaware of traditional gender roles that …

  10. In lieu of International Women’s Day, Women’s History Month and our W&D March theme: Women Who #Werk – we are tooting our horns to honor and celebrate women everywhere. There’s so much to celebrate about womanhood, but this year I’m particularly thankful for the women who have helped reinspire and reinvigorate my love for Wit & Delight: …

  11. When I first brought our group of contributors together to pitch this new content idea for W&D, my hope was we would create a broader set of experiences for readers to enjoy. I thought about how we could take the best of our current content and continue to evolve what’s working. The framework looked like this: …

  12. March madness, indeed! Buckle up, buttercups, March is going to be a wildly reflective ride. Most notably, Venus, planet of art, beauty and love, will be retrograde from March 4th through April 15th. Retrogrades get a bad rap, but don’t fret. Unlike Mercury, which trips, stumbles and falls backward several times a year, lending itself to delayed flights …

  13. “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.” …

  14. We recently caught up with Emily Katz after she held a modern macrame course at our studio. I’ve been a massive fan of her bohemian styles for years and it was such a pleasure to spend the afternoon making things with her. As she told the lovely group of women taking the workshop about her life …

  15.   Why, oh why do we watch The Bachelor franchise week after week? Is it so we can have something to talk to our moms about other than politics? Perhaps. Is it so we can live vicariously through skinny people whose dating life is wilder than swiping left or right on their grubby phone screen? Definitely. …

  16. Here is what we are loving this week Vitamins for the modern, aesthetically indulgent woman: Care/of We are loving this brand. So convenient, beautiful and definitely worth the price. If your new year’s resolution motivation has taken a tailspin, you can grab a hold of it here with this Volt Planner. To ward off the recent freeze …

  17. Winter’s coming. This line means something entirely different for Game of Thrones fans, but for those of us in the northern part of the country, it has always meant a welcome shift in the pace of life. Frankly, I’ve been waiting all winter for the cold and the snow, but all we’ve really had here is …

  18. Joe and I have bad timing. For the four Valentine’s Days we’ve had as a couple, only one of them has been spent together. This year he is on the other side of the globe for work, and I foiled his plans to surprise me with flowers because I’ve become the family’s budget Nazi stickler and inquired …

  19. Now that Bonnie Tyler’s classic slow jam is lodged in your head – not sorry! – it’s time to discover what the stars have in store for us this month. Namely, eclipses. Somehow, in the shortest of all the months, the universe has packed two of 2017’s four eclipses into February. What the what does that mean? …

  20. It’s finally here. The most dramatic blog post in Wit & Delight’s history. Each one of you is here for the right reasons, so I just wanted to steal you for a sec to tell you I can totally see myself falling in love. To show you how much I’ve enjoyed our time together, my friends Kate …

  21. Readers, meet Becky Lang. I’ve followed her on Twitter for years and we were able to work together briefly last year while she was working with local agency, Zeus Jones. Admittedly I was a little nervous to meet one of my favorite Twitter follows; Becky (@leckybang) is bright, funny, and objectively cool with an unabashed interest …

  22. Hey you, what’s your sign? Cliché pick-up line, be damned. Let’s get a little better acquainted with our astrological signs as we start something new here on Wit & Delight. That’s right: horoscopes! So far, 2017 has been – insert heavy sigh – trying. We could all use a little guidance from the stars these days. …

  23. For most of my life, I chased an elusive idea of love. The kind that arrives serendipitously and presents itself with grand gestures. I waited for my modernized white knight to arrive and save me. Save me from what? you may ask. I thought a great love would make everything in life make sense. It would …

  24. Better late than never, here is our January Reading Edit. This month wore us down for many reasons, and media fatigue was one of the biggest culprits. With so much to read about all the changes happening around the world, we found ourselves looking at our sources of our media in a new light. When I …

  25. I’m excited for you all to get to know my friend Kate Jones today. Kate and I met a couple years ago when she was passing through Minneapolis. We got brunch and got to talking and I learned that her jewelry line, Ursa Major, was just a tiny peek into her artistic depth. I hope you get the …

  26. We’re almost done with January – but for those of us in the North, winter is just getting started. I’m excited to usher in a new month with a new theme next week. I’ll keep this short so we can get right to it: First – we’re getting the Wit & Delight newsletter up & running!  We’re …

  27. America is made up of its cities and the space between them. To inhabitants, these communities are an expression of cultures, values, dialect, and climate. When we visit other parts of the country, we arrive with a prepackaged set of stereotypes further perpetuated by pop culture references and collective experiences. New York is “Center of the Universe.” …

  28. “One of my goals in 2017 is to be brave.” This is what Bridgette Dutkowski told me when I asked if she’d be willing to write about her experience at the Women’s March on Washington. While you may or may not recognize her name from our Monthly Reading Edits, Bridgette lends her vast talents when mine fall …

  29. This world we live in feels a little different today. I woke up in a terrible mood and didn’t want to get out of bed. Twitter brought on a mini rage stroke, so I deleted the app and decided to take some time to pull myself together. Knowing that doing something makes me feel better than doing …

  30. My favorite pieces of décor in my home all have one thing in common – I had some part in their creation. Whether it’s choosing the perfect family photo to hang in our dining room or piecing together a floral arrangement, there is something to be said about showcasing a work of art that you had a …

  31. Over plates of spaghetti, a girlfriend recently said, “If you are having a negative reaction to someone’s Instagram photo, it says more about you than it does them.” We were discussing the latest Instagram post from someone we both found both fascinating and controversial. Instagram has been a common topic of conversation with my close girlfriends these days. My friend has …

  32. Each month, Wit & Delight will be introducing a new editorial theme. Blog posts from myself and contributors will be inspired by these themes and explored through words, visuals, pun, and articles. For weekly updates and additional content featuring our favorite finds from around the web-o-sphere, sign up for our email list. If you’d like to …

  33. Guys, we made it! 2017 is here and even though technically nothing really has changed in the past four days, the new year marks a time for reflection and renewal for just about all of us. For the past five years, I’ve used the time between Christmas and New Year’s to reflect on what we accomplished in …

  34. I know few people who are sad to see 2016 go. Joe and I joke that the only good thing that happened this year, was the birth of our son. Times of trial and division have happened in our history countless times before, but never have we personally had such proximity to the events themselves. Sometimes it …

  35. You may know her best as Princess Leia, but Carrie Fisher was a heroine in real life, too. RIP Carrie. Thank you for all you’ve done. Read more about how Carrie used her platform to help fight mental health stigma at TIME.com.  She was also a prolific writer; NYMag has a round up of her most memorable quotes …

  36. Ready or not, Christmas came and went and now we’re looking towards the new year. That time of year to celebrate with friends and family and to remember the important things in life. It’s been an unbelievable year, and I’m looking forward to a little R&R. The Wit & Delight team will be taking some time …

  37. Your squad, your crew, your gang. The ones that have (and will) outlast just about every other relationship in your life. I’m talking about person that knows every secret, where all the bodies are buried and will destroy damning evidence upon your death. Yes, your best friend. These gifts are for the special someone that has been and will …

    IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH & Video by CAL BRUE

    It’s pretty mind-blowing that we’ve been in the studio space for about three months now. While we ran into some snafus during our build-out, this place is already starting to feel like home. Maybe it’s the fact that I spend so much time here (sometimes in my sweats and slippers) or because the tornado of stuff has …

  39. Mark your calendars! Modern by Dwell Magazine hits Target shelves and Target.com December 27th. The line includes a wide array of indoor and outdoor seating, textiles, dining and serving wares, planters, and decor in price points ranging from $20 – $300. Very exciting!

  40. This morning my hair froze while walking to the car. The car that is 20 feet from my back door, mind you. Winter is officially here, and it’s time to remind the northern half of the country that we have a choice when it comes to the winter months: embrace it, or make your exit plan! …

  41. What do you get for the couple who always gifts the most perfectly thoughtful presents? It’s a tough order. My sister(s)-in-law are the masters of surprise and delight when it comes to gifting occasions. They always find ways to blend personal anecdotes with practicality. I put together a couple items that are both safe and thoughtful for those …

  42. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH PEDIGREE® DENTASTIX TREATS.
    IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH & CHELSEY WERTH

      I grew up the oldest of three children. For the first few years of my life I was the sun that my parents rotated around. I had their undivided attention and adoration. Admittedly, I don’t remember any of this, but I used to imagine what life would be like sans a little brother and sister. …

  43. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LG.

    IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH

    I talk often, and at length at times, about how motherhood has changed me and my world. Some are pretty obvious, but there are some changes that I did not anticipate, despite the warnings I may have received from friends. For instance, I knew that my time would be further divided between work and home, but …

  44. I really hit the jackpot with my in-laws and I certainly do not take that fact for granted! I feel like I’ve gained another set of role models in my life. They’re both really good at diving into their passions: hers being yoga and his being hunting and the outdoors. They both genuinely love their work …

  45. It’s true. Sometimes it takes becoming a mother yourself to truly understand the one who raised you. Whether she lives across an ocean or right next door, has a house full of little ones or an empty nest, it is second nature for moms to put others needs before their own. These gifts are designed to remind …

  46. Ah, shopping for Dad. It’s always been the hardest task! I don’t know about you, but if my dad needs something, he buys it. So what do you get the guy who pretty much has everything? Something he never knew he needed. We put together a list of tried and true classics that we consider an …

  47. Brought to you in partnership with PEDIGREE® Dentastix Treats. Images by 2ND TRUTH Winnie Bear will always be our “first born.” We got a handful of parenting mistakes out of our system with her, and for better or worse, she’s proven to be a sensitive and sometimes needy member of our family. Not that we mind the extra …

  49. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH the HP spectre x360 IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH There are a lot of things to love about being the older sister.

  50. For the sister who shares your closet and shoe size, dreams of opening a bookstore/flower shop someday, likes to spend the afternoon with tea and a book, makes cocktails for her friends in her eclectic uptown apartment, is a hopeless romantic with a weakness for Emily Brontë and always gives the best advice.

  51. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ARTIFACT UPRISING IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH We’ve lived in this house for two full years now. During these last two years, major milestones have taken place: Winnie joined the family, our home undertook a major renovation, a once-in-a-lifetime trip, we had a baby (!!!). Milestones that we want to remember and relive (maybe not the …

  52. Pre-kiddo, I had no idea what to purchase for little ones during the holidays (or birthdays for that matter). Now that August is here, I’m hyper aware of all of the amazing items that are available for the littles. Teeny-tiny sweaters, patterned blankets and timeless toys are my newest obsession. We’ve gathered a foolproof guide to …

  53. BROUGHT TO YOU IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SHUTTERFLY. IMAGES BY 2ND TRUTH Joe and I are notorious for not taking photos of ourselves together. More often than not, a friend has to remind us to be in a “normal” photo together. I fully recognize the irony: A couple that loves their individual Instagram accounts so much but a documentation of …

  54. He puts snacks in your purse in case you get hungry.  Vintage sneakers are his hobby. You’d likely find him on a hike or riding his bike, outside he feels free and inspired. He knows what he likes and never fails to be nice. For him, you’ll want gifts with a story. Shop The Guide: Tabletop foosball NORTH …

  55. Friends, it just about that time of year. While we will be providing gift guides for every man, woman, child and pet in your life, we wanted to start this series off with a lists of gifts that support organizations that will need it the most. We are rooting for unity and togetherness after this long …

  56. How are you? I bet you’ve been asked this question at least once before your morning coffee. The formality of “how are you” is so ingrained in the way we greet one another it’s become less of question and more of a choreographed back in forth between two humans. The answer one expects, “fine, how are you?” is just …

  57. Dear readers, After going dark for a few days, I’m back online and no less shaken and saddened by the current discourse in our communities locally and across the web. While we don’t cover politics on W&D, last Tuesday’s result will affect all of us. Maybe, I’m seeing my country clearly for the first time. It’s easy to view these …

  58.   Hey gang! We’re excited to share news of our partnership with Domino! You can now purchase home decor items curated by Wit & Delight on their website.

  61. Hello! I’m popping in here quickly to point out a change in the way we disclose sponsorships. For almost a year now, we’ve provided a fairly heavy-handed approach to disclosing sponsorships at the top and bottom of our blog posts. We’ve gotten feedback from readers that while they appreciate our transparency, it would be nice to …

  62. Brought to you in partnership with STARBUCKS® Images by Matt Lien We count ourselves as lucky. When you merge two lives together, a lot can go wrong.

  64. Brrr!!! It was a chilly 45 degrees in Minneapolis today and boy, you could really feel winter knockin’. Seasonal changes are the best part about hailing from the northern half of the country, partly because it means wardrobe updates and new activities to plan with friends. This fall, we’ve been busy doing things. Cooking more, socializing …

  67. One of unexpected challenges of having a newborn is finding ways to do normal tasks at work and home with only one hand. It’s surprisingly difficult.

  75. Whenever I see a beautiful bohemian room or a carefree spirit embracing this off-beat style, I’m totally inspired by the attitude and ease of it all. I tend to lean towards a more tailored and structured decor and fashion sense, but that doesn’t mean a couple natural accents can’t be worked into my house and wardrobe. While I’ll never go …

  79. The last few weeks I’ve been thinking freaking out about the baby. Everything I’ve read says this is totally normal, if not a rite of passage. I suppose the surge of hormones helps us keep these little babies safe, so I’m just going to chalk up the added anxiety me transforming into a super mom. Ha! The one side …

  80. If you’ve seen Francis Mallman’s episode of Chef’s Table on Netflix, then you know how absolutely enchanting al fresco dining can be. Nothing says summer like throwing an outdoor dinner party.

  85. While you can’t exactly rely on spring arriving early in Minnesota, there is one way to know spring has arrived: wedding invitations! So far, this year is looking to be a light one, aside from the fact we have one a week before my due date! In the past, I’ve attended my fair share of weddings, and have …

  86. When you think of a cabin, what do you picture? Chances are it’s not Vardehaugen’s stunning compact version of the classic winter abode. The Norwegian architecture firm designed the 180 square foot Vindheim Cabin to blend into its snowy landscape. The roof slopes down the ground, doubling as a ski or sledding slope. There’s even a skylight …

  87. Diane Keaton has got style chops. After recently discovering her killer Pinterest profile through Camille Styles, I’m totally hooked on her style (again): the glasses, the high-waisted trousers, the tuxedo-inspired ensembles, the wide brim hats. Turns out, Ms. Keaton has an equally classic taste in interiors. Plaid chairs, rustic wood shelving, clean architectural lighting. If you’re thinking …

  88. Can you feel it?? That’s the natural high of Spring, you guys. Maybe it’s the melting snow or the rising temperature or that this year I’ve finished handing off all my tax documents early, but I am feeling extra hopeful and excited for the upcoming season. This month’s reading edit includes a little bit of everything, from dealing …

  89. Spring is in the air, which means for a lucky few: spring break. A chance to get away from the everyday and experience an adventure or maybe a new culture. Lately, I’ve been dreaming about blue skies, blue water and sun-drenched streets. Alas, there is no escaping work this month, but that hasn’t stopped me from infusing …

  90. Did you inherit a vintage bathroom full of colored tile? Consider yourself lucky enough to hit the decor jackpot. Vintage bathrooms are totally back in… or did they ever really go out of style? Maybe not, at least in some of our minds. Here’s candy-colored visual treats for you on this Friday morning. (Can you tell …

  91. Happy Friday, GUYS! We have a mixtape for you– finally. Back in November I said RIP to Rdio, my music streaming service choice. This was the week I came to embrace Spotify with open arms and have officially stopped playing Kanye, Justin, and Taylor on repeat. Not that there is anything wrong with that. This mix is a …

  92. Gilda + Bill. Kate + Johnny. Anjelica + Jack. It probably had something to do with this a mention on last week’s episode of GIRLS…but I found myself scrolling, scrolling, scrolling through the Tumblr site, Old Loves. All good things must come to an end, perhaps.    

  93. A couple months ago we were digging through boxes in the attic. I came across a huge stack of notebooks and sketchbooks from the past 10 years. The stack came up to my knees! Some of these books were from college and recalled many a late night pulling together a last-minute project. Others were more recent and included paintings, …

  94. Confessions of a modern adult: My inbox terrifies me. There is a three-digit number on the upper right corner of the mail icon on my phone. At one point, this was a four digit number. It’s not procrastination that scares me, it’s the sheer volume of email that come through on a daily basis. I tend to be a …

  95. In this week’s edit we’re totally into… 1) High gloss lips! A nice way to spice up the super matte trend. Get the look with Stila Lip Glaze…. 2) Shades of mauve. The 90s-inspired trend moves into home decor and I’m not mad about it. The inspiration above comes from the home of Marie Worsaae, a partner at Aiayu, a …

  96. February, that month of winter where the only thing I seem to look forward to is its end. No offense to Valentine’s Day (meh), but once this month is over, Spring is right around the corner. Hoping you were able to make the most out the shortest month out of the year. (PS: This quote may …

  97. One of the best things of having a public forum, and a captive audience (thank you, dear reader!) is that I have the opportunity to share something or someone that might be completely new to you.
