Weekend Reading 8.20.22

How was your week? I had a good week. I’ve talked about this in my newsletter but this summer has been pretty slow work-wise (sponsored content + paid projects). Aside from the occasional anxiety about whether things will pick back up, it’s been nice. I have been using the free time to test out different things, play with reels, improve my Photoshop skills, and really dig into my analytics and think strategically. Things are picking back up again and I have a lot that I’m really excited coming up in September and Q4.

So this week, I felt very energized and excited about work. And this weekend is going to be a slow and cozy one. I was in LA last weekend and next weekend my boyfriend and I are going on vacation, so this weekend will be spent at home… my happy place! It is crazy that I move in less than two months. Whatever you are up to, I hope it’s great! Xox

A CHIC Soho loft.

This corn pasta recipe sounds incredible.

A very good under $100 fall dress.

    It wouldn’t have been hard for the psychologist of the “lonely men” article to discuss the role of toxic patriarchy in training more and more men to not treat women the way women deserve. Therapy can be good but it is an individual solution that isn’t covered much by healthcare and doesn’t address the issue in a societal way. And flipping the script to identify toxic patriarchy also means that more women are realizing they deserve to be treated better than men want to treat them. Blah it’s such a neoliberal piece.
