You did it! Another work week is in the books, and we are inching ever-closer to those sweet, sweet days of high summer. Let's take advantage of the (relatively) cool temps while we can though, right? To get you in the mood to get out and make the most of the weekend, this week's links are all kinds of inspiring—from reasons to run to Bey's dance moves and Jessica Alba's astonishing entrepreneurship to the (slightly) nicer side of Regina George that we didn't even know was there. Enjoy and see you Monday!
#BEYONCEALWAYSONBEAT is the meme you never knew you needed, but now it will be hard to live without. You're welcome.

The personal essays published on The Cut are some of my favorite things to read online, ever. This week, author Michelle Goldberg shares an extremely honest account of her transition from PROUD NON-BREEDER TO HAPPY MOTHER—in her late 30s.
Believe it or not, JESSICA ALBA IS ONE OF FORBES' RICHEST SELF-MADE WOMEN IN AMERICA. The Honest Company has been valued at $1 billion, and she's sitting on a $200 million fortune herself. It's safe to say she's come a long way from Honey.
It's important to know that a PREVIOUSLY UNSEEN DELETED SCENE FROM MEAN GIRLS HAS SURFACED. Ahh, how we missed you, Regina George.
I used to be a runner. Now I'm not. Into the Gloss makes a case for why RUNNING SUCKS BUT YOU SHOULD DO IT ANYWAY. Maybe it's time to start again...
Bloomberg has an INTERVIEW WITH 24-YEAR OLD SNAPCHAT CO-FOUNDER EVAN SPIEGEL. You need to read it.
FYI, I love following dogs on Instagram. I also love reading The Infatuation restaurant reviews all the time. So @MARNIE THE DOG SHARING HER FRIDAY FIVES is really, really important to me. It should be to you, too.
