Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our wonderful readers! This year, we're thankful for many things, but most of all YOU GUYS! We're so grateful for all your support and input - you inspire us every single day. So thanks :)

Now, if you're embracing your turkey (or, for veggies like me, Tofurkey)-induced sleepiness and aren't ready to shop the Black Friday sales yet (have you checked out our massive list?) it's time to relax and unwind with our fave links of the week. Enjoy!

*

Whether you're planning a get-together or just want a gorgeous new hair accessory, these DIY floral party "hats" are too cute not to attempt!

*

Okay, I totally disagree with the idea that we women should be striving to get married above all else, BUT this article is interesting: Why Some Women Just Aren't Wife Material, from The Daily Mail.

Who else is excited for tomorrow? Refinery 29 lists their 6 Tips for Black Friday Shopping.

*

Also from the same blog: Taking Photographs, Composition, etc. Good tips for anyone into photography.

*

Since the internet has been on a Ryan Gosling kick lately (and, ok, we have too): 10 Scientific Reasons Ryan Gosling is Sexier Than Bradley Cooper. It's just true, guys.
