A little of sports, entertainment, fashion and more…start the week with some good reads.

Something I really should’ve shared last weekend, when the Patriots actually won: the feel-good story of rookie Kenbrell Thompkins (well-done by The Boston Globe).

The Washington Post takes a closer look at how Joanna Coles, EIC of Cosmo, is making the blockbuster magazine a little bit more serious.

Interesting development: high Twitter rates during television shows don’t necessarily correlate to high ratings. [via Variety]

Gravity, which has won the U.S. domestic box office three weeks in a row, kicked off awards season. (You can read my review here.) The movie though, is revealing a less-than-stellar Best Actress race.

Ok, I’ll admit it: I’ve never seen Into The Woods. But with this cast, I’ll definitely be seeing it in theaters — take a look at Meryl Streep as the Witch. [via EW]

Pretty cool: shoe designer Christian Louboutin is debuting “nude” shoes that suit a wider variety of skin tones, finally! Can’t wait to see this hit fast fashion/mass market retailers. [via Jezebel]

An oldie but a goodie: Buzzfeed explains what it’s like wearing glasses. (Accurate.)

The New York Times explores four square blocks of Old City, one of my favorite neighborhoods in Philadelphia.

I love libraries — Huff Post takes us to some of the most beautiful bibliotecas in the world.

And just because it’s Amy Poehler and beautifully written: the comedian in The New Yorker on her first summer job.

Also, a digital congratulations to one of my very best friends who got ENGAGED over the weekend! I was so excited barely slept!
