Kate's Picks
  1. “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 …

  2. 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: …

  3. I quit my job for a new and drastically different career opportunity. It was hard. Like, breakup hard. I was in an especially vulnerable spot in my life when I first started the job. I had just moved back from New York City after working at a non-profit organization, which explains why I returned to Minneapolis just …

  4. 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: …

  5. 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 …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. Kelly Vittengl of Frances Loom is a bit of an Instagram sensation and an overall design inspiration to me. I’ve personally been following and loving every one of her rugs since 2014. Here at W&D, we recently caught up with Kelly and chatted all things rugs, personal style, curation, starting an unexpected business and her upcoming …

  8. Readers, Welcome to Studio 125. This is the “official” reveal of our space, the one with the backstory and ALL the resources featured in the countless Instagrams taken over the past six months. It’s been a journey, and to be frank, we’re still working out the kinks. Nonetheless, it’s finished enough to invite you in for …

  9. “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.” …

  10. “She’s my girl crush.” We’ve all said it, we maybe all have one, whether it’s spoken or not. Urban Dictionary defines a girl crush as feelings of admiration and adoration which a girl has for another girl, without wanting to shag said girl. A nonsexual attraction, usually based on veneration at some level. That’s all well and good – …

  11. Planning my wedding with Joe wasn’t exactly typical by popular culture’s standards. I tried on one dress by myself and said “maybe” before plunking down my credit card. We let the florist do whatever she wanted with the color scheme. We picked a venue we trusted with food we loved. We relaxed and went out to …

  12. Minnesota friends! I am excited to share that we’re hosting a beauty & wellness pop-up event on Saturday, March 4, from 11am to 3pm at Studio 125. Those of us who work in the studio are always chatting about our favorite wellness tips or spots around Minnesota for a quick spa pick-me-up. With that, we decided to …

  13. My paternal grandparents have always been a beacon of unconditional support and love in my life — a source of equilibrium in a tumultuous journey to adulthood. They’ve contributed a great deal to my growth while also nurturing a commitment to one another. Theirs is what seems like an old love, reserved for days long since …
