Friday Favorites


This has been quite the week. It's not even that anything in particular is going on, it's just one of those weeks where everything seems to drag and I feel like I'm constantly treading water. My fingers are crossed for a relaxing weekend - or at least a weekend where I have some time to relax in addition to cross off some things from my ever-growing to do list!
ONE - Representation Burnout
I really relate to this one - the concept that it can be exhausting to constantly be representing a diverse viewpoint somewhere. It's like you always have to be "on," and it can get really tiring.

TWO - Cashmere Wrap
It's no secret that I'm into wraps and capes. They're especially perfect as it starts to cool off a bit in fall, and you're not sure when you'll need to throw on another layer. This one looks so soft, and is an extra 30% off if you use the code SHOPNOW. I ordered it myself and can't wait for it to arrive!

THREE - Toxic Friendships
Unless you follow a lot of Instagram influencers, you might not be up on the drama going on surrounding one influencer, Caroline Calloway, and her once-ghostwriter, who just published an essay on their time working together. Even if you don't care at all about anything from that last sentence, the essay is a really insightful look at toxic friendships, and how something that seemed so amazing and consuming can go so wrong.


FOUR - For the Love of Men by Liz Plank
I've written about Liz Plank before - she has done some great coverage on myriad issues, and always makes sure to include disability when talking about diversity and society. She has a new book out about masculinity, and I can't wait to read it!

FIVE - Rain by Ben Platt
I love Ben Platt's voice - he sings so many different genres so effortlessly. This new song and video are so great - I will be listening a few (hundred) times this weekend.
