five little things

To Listen. Stown. I’m sure you’ve heard of it and I’m just singing into the podcast recommendation echo chamber, but if you haven’t… This beautiful, complicated, tragic look into rural Alabama has me itching to hear more southern voices. Southern identity is multi-faceted, and I think the makers of This American Life and Serial knocked this story out of the park.

To Taste. My childhood friends still raves about these coconut cupcakes I made for her birthday when we were in high school. I’m thinking about making them for myself this weekend. (p.s. Happy birthday, Em!)

To Do. Check out your town’s First Friday or First Saturday events. I think I’m going to check out First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

To Buy. I’ve been a bit more adventurous with my makeup on the weekends. This glitter lip topper has been my favorite Saturday addition. You just can’t help but feel like a fairy glitter witch, if that’s what you’re going for. Use this link for $5 off.

To Watch. If you’re not watching Big Little Lies what are you doing? Binge the miniseries to catch the finally this Sunday.
