kate-upton-harpersbazaar15-01I keep saying that the hardest part of doing these linkdumps isn’t finding the links but coming up with the intros to the links. I’ve been busy this weekend and haven’t had much of a chance for writing. The next week on the blog could get annoyingly dull as a result.

Anyway, it’s Sunday which means that we have to do the links. Let’s kick off with Kate Upton.
