This Sweatshirt Gets Me

Work has been very, very stressful for me of late so I find myself just wanting to live in leggings and oversized sweatshirts most days. And this one, in particular, is just so perfect for my mood of late.

Feature: After reading Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodgee, I’ve moved onto their podcast, About Race (clearly I’m super into podcasts these days) and I highly recommend it.

All the Frills: Smelling Good Until 2022

I was lucky enough to receive a lot of my favourite perfume for Christmas. Like a lot, a lot. So, my little scent tray is now a full sized tray to accommodate everything and I’ll be smelling wonderful for several years.

Weekend Reading:

  • I’m sure it’s the Italian Renaissance portrait motif but I truly love this Dior collection

  • The Undefeated is an amazing project charting Black athletes in professional sport – I’m not super into sports but I’m definitely learning a lot. 

  • This is a fascinating read and really affirms the need for better pre-natal care (including paid leave pre-birth) as a way to ensure better post-natal outcomes. 

  • This person is my new hero

  • This is an amazing discovery!

Is Winter Over?

Now that the cold weather has finally broken a bit, I can venture outside without an extremely bulky coat. At this point it’s the little things that are getting me through while I wait for my access to the vaccine and nicer weather means being able to meet friends for outdoor walks, which I'm immensely looking forward to.
