Happy Sunday and Happy Father’s Day! We are going out to the suburbs for some backyard hangs with our Dads and Luna is VERY excited to play with my parent’s golden retriever 😉
As I mentioned in my stories a few days ago, this week was a bit of a struggle work-wise. I know “influencers” get a bad rep of being super self absorbed and only posting selfies on Instagram… but blogging is my full time job! Everyone else still has to show up for work and that doesn’t mean they don’t care about Black Lives Matter, so I know I can find a balance, too. It just still felt tricky and difficult last week. Luckily, I have some relevant ideas for this coming week including things like mental health/therapy, how to properly wear and take care of your face masks, a new recipe, and the sustainable swap that literally ever woman should start doing right now. Stay tuned! But for now, here are some Sunday spotlights for you…
Sunday Spotlight 2
I just got the dress I’m wearing in the photo above last week and it’s the cutest little thing. I have the cayenne color in XS and it fits PERFECTLY. A great non-petite option for petites! (I need to add it to this post!)
Did you see this thread that a white woman wrote about all of the “mistakes” she was allowed to survive? It’s a very powerful depiction of privilege.
There have only been 2 episodes of RomComPods and I’m already hooked. If you like cheesy and cute romantic comedies, you will love it. It’s the perfect happy podcast to put on when I’m cooking dinner. I want more!
I can’t believe that Ruby Bridges, who at age 6 was the first Black child to attend an all white elementary school in the South, is only 65 YEARS OLD. How crazy is that? I admittedly always thought of the Civil Rights Movement, segregation, and really overt racism as happening so far in the past… but it just really wasn’t that long ago.
Beautycounter is having a sitewide sale right now, so if you’re in the need for any skincare, now is a good time to snag it! Beautycounter can be hit or miss for me, but I stand firmly behind their All Bright C Serum (the most potent Vitamin C serum I’ve ever tried!), Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence (I usually hate toners because they’re so drying, but this is very hydrating!), and Countermatch Lotion (a great lightweight face lotion!).
What happened to Elijah McClain is so beyond heartbreaking.

When it comes to Instagram, YES TO ALL OF THIS.
I was planning on shooting my buffalo chicken tenders this week… but I can already tell you that they won’t be as gorgeous as these buffalo chicken nuggets by All The Healthy Things. I mean, WOWZA.
Did you hear that 16 friends tested positive for coronavirus after one night out? Granted, that was in Florida where cases are surging, but I hope it reminds you to be careful out there and wear your mask! (And listen to Dr. Fauci, too ?)
This season of Top Chef was so good… and this music video was icing on the cake!
Who wants to go to a drive in movie at Lincoln Yards?!
