Angry! I got my second vaccination yesterday and when I woke up this morning everything hurt. I’ve been sluggish all day and finally feeling a little better. Did you experience any side effects from the vaccine? Hope everyone is fine!
Always on the hunt for affordable art, I recently came across this lovely space. The print is from Garmi, a small graphic design studio in Copenhagen, and can be found here.
Speaking of affordable, Hatch, the beautiful but splendid pregnancy brand, recently launched a collection at Target called The Nines. The pieces – from striped shirts to floral dresses to paper bag pants – cost anywhere from $ 24 to $ 40.
Whoa whoa whoa. On Sunday night I saw Promising Young Woman, a dark comedy thriller about sexual consent and assault. Traumatized by a medical school incident, Cassie (played by Carey Mulligan) seeks recognition – and aside from that, revenge. The day after I saw it, I felt consumed by it – thinking back on experiences in my life and thinking deeply about how to raise boys who understand consent and who stand up against friends who do something wrong. (Here is a previous post on teaching young children about consent.) I would highly recommend this brilliant bowel stroke of a movie.
PS About sexual harassment and what are your three best movies of all time?
