Hey there, Friday! What took you so long? Here are five things that are on my mind this week…
- Bitch Sesh: I am so lucky that one of my friends told me about this podcast that focuses on all my favorite Bravo shoes! The two ladies who host it are truly brilliant and hilarious– seriously, they are alums of Upright Citizens Brigade and Casey was on SNL. They cover these shows with just the right amount of sincerity while also pointing out just how absurd everything is. I found myself literally laughing out loud multiple times, you need to listen to this if you love Bravo!!
- It’s Fall, Y’all!: This week I pulled out all my fall decorations (which consist mainly of pumpkins from Target), and it has got me in the fall spirit! I have the most perfect Pumpkin Spice Candle from Bath and Body Works (PSA: everything is 20% off now!) that just makes everything smell cozy and delicious. I haven’t had a pumpkin spice latte yet this year because it’s been so warm, but I’m thinking I’ll have to pull the trigger when the temps cool down a bit next week.
- Fake News and Small Towns: I read this article in the New York Times this week, and it really made me think a lot about who we are and where we stand as a country. The author went to a small town in Idaho to track the origins of a grossly exaggerated fake news story about refugees attacking a local girl and to see what made citizens so eager to believe the conspiracy theories. She really captured the fear and hostility and hate behind so many of these fake news stories, and it was a really insightful and deep look into this phenomenon.
- Fall treats: I have way too many apples right now, and I’m about to go apple-picking this weekend soI’m bound to end up with some more. I found some AMAZING recipes on Pinterest for what to do with those extra applies, and I’m excited to start baking some fall treats soon. It’s been too long since I’ve baked anything, and I’m craving something warm and cinnamon-y that tastes like fall!
- “From her dad’s killing during the crack epidemic to a Supreme Court clerkship:” I saw this article in the Washington Post this week and of course, as a lawyer and superfan of SCOTUS, had to check it out. It’s an inspiring story of a woman who overcame incredible obstacles to rise to the tip-top of her field. I can’t wait to see what she does next in her legal career!
And if you’re interested in my look above from Union Market, I’m wearing jeans and sandals from Madewell. My exact ruffle top is sold out, but I linked some other fun ruffle tops below!
