Happy Friday! Here are our top V/5 for this week!
1) How to Turn Life Setbacks into Opportunities for Growth | Huffington Post
Maybe we’re just gluttons for punishment (we have opened two new Cava Grills and have another on the way oh so soon, after all), but the vibes around here lately have been stressed. Suffice it to say, this Huff Post writeup is a welcome reminder and resource on how to deal with some of life’s most common stresses – and how we can use them as lessons to help us grow.
2) “Food Maps” | Food Politic
Leave it to food art gurus Henry Hargreaves and Caitlin Leven to create a series of physical maps made entirely of iconic foods from each country. Geography just got a lot more interesting. Put your global food and culture knowledge to the test by trying to guess what each food map is made of. Good luck!
3) Throwing the Perfect Fall Cocktail Party | Tasting Table
In honor of spirits month, food stylist and author Maria del Mar Sacasa pulled the best tips from her book Winter Cocktails on how to un-complicate your fall cocktail party. This is a how-to we can get behind.
4) Kitchen Gift Guides | Love and Lemons
Wondering what to get your foodie friend? Check. Need a hostess gift? Check. Want to get a head start on holiday shopping? Check out these gift guides curated by Jeanine of Love and Lemons using Keep. Be sure to get us something fun, too.
5) Autumn Story | Steller
This oh-so-photogenic Steller story showcases all of autumn’s wonders and makes us want to get outside and take a walk around the neighborhood before seasonal yellows, oranges, and reds are gone. #Autumn
