Happy Monday! First of all, today is Amazon Prime Day. In a few hours I will have my picks up but you’ve been warned, this year’s deals are good. I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was jam-packed. A four year old’s bday party (I ended up going with the Stomp Rocket and some Babiators for his gift – both were highly recommended when I polled you for suggestions on Instagram), a few fun dinners, and then hanging at my parents’ place last night. It was a really nice weekend. I’m looking forward to a pretty low key week, with a little trip to Georgia on Wednesday.
Also how great is this dress? We talked about it a few weeks ago but I am so in love with the Aqua x Mary Katrantzou collab. The butterfly pattern makes me really happy. It’s dramatic and fun and would be perfect for a big event. Wearable art. I’m wearing a size medium.
A Hilarious TV Show, A New Jewelry Find, and Other Good Things
Hacks, with Jean Smart
Have you watched Hacks, on HBO Max yet? If not, as I’ve said to friends, OH MY GOD GO WATCH IT!!! It is definitely one of my favorite recent watches. Jean Smart is absolutely brilliant. She plays an aging comedienne with a QVC line (the show was definitely loosely inspired by Joan Rivers; I loved this little guide to the similarities and dissimilarities between the two!), forced to work with a young, brash writer. The two strike up an unlikely friendship and the writing is just so clever. There are only ten episodes, each just over 30 minutes long… you could absolutely watch it in a single weekend – at least, that’s what I did!

The COOLEST Rings!
I was served Instagram ads for these (amazing!!!) rings a few too many times and finally placed an order. I have larger fingers so I had to wait for my size to come in (the sizing is frustrating but a tip is that they seem to add new rings every day so some days they’ll have your size and some days they won’t) but I will just tell you that these rings are the COOLEST. I bought this one and this one and love them so much – they’re really unique and I have never seen anything like them.
We’ve Got Issues with Emily & Jess
My friends started a new podcast and I think it’s such a brilliant idea, especially if you care about current events but have a low attention span (is that bad to admit? It’s me, lately!!!). Introducing, We’ve Got Issues, by Jess Kirby and Emily Amick (aka @emilyinyourphone). Every week they’ll tackle a pressing issue – in under 15 minutes! They aren’t trying to be a news podcast but rather hoping to fill a gap in the market by sharing an interesting and insightful conversation on issues that matter in under 15 minutes. So far they’ve tackled student loan forgiveness and the wealth tax. Head on over to listen, rate, review, subscribe. You know the drill, do all the things!!
