Amber Tamblyn’s Instagram post. Ladies who have breastfed, I think that the image Amber Tamblyn posted to Instagram will resonate.
Lucky Charms Cereal. This week I picked up a giant box of Lucky Charms cereal and it has been a delicious way to start my day. I’d worry more about it if the label didn’t specifically say, “First Ingredient Whole Grain,” right there on the box. My son likes to search for the marshmallows and eat only those. He's a smart kid.
LuLaRoe Carly Dress. I know that I’ve spoken about LuLaRoe a couple of times here lately, and now that I’ve earned some free stuff thanks to the party I hosted with the wonderful Meg Gregory, I’m likely to keep it going. You all, I have really liked everything that I've ordered from LuLaRoe but the Carly might be my fave. It's a swing dress that’s both flowy and flattering, a harmonious combination. If you’re ever interested in checking out LuLaRoe, head on over to Meg’s page.
Viola Davis’ Oscar Speech. I love Viola Davis. She is a phenomenal actress who steals every scene (as they say in movie-speech)--and I mean that sincerely. She also gave a riveting, beautiful speech when she won an Oscar recently. "Exhum[ing]...stories" is a beautiful and admirable project, and one that all artists should be concerned with.
My new computer. A couple of weeks ago I asked my friends for advice on whether I should get Mac or not, and many said: YES. I value the advice of my friends so much, but after a GREAT DEAL of debate—seriously—I decided to go with a cheaper PC. This Samsung Notebook 7 is amazing. It’s so fun to type on it. I have no idea why. I love how petite and light it is, and it’s pretty cool how it turns into a tablet; I read a book on my computer yesterday comfortably. All I all, I am in love with this inanimate object.
Chrissy Teigen’s essay on postpartum depression. When you have postpartum anxiety or depression, as I have had, it makes it even a little easier to hear other people say: I also have/had it. Chrissy Teigen wrote a beautiful, moving, funny essay in Glamour about her experience. It’s a must-read.
