What I’m Reading. Axios. Your new favorite source for political news.

What I’m Watching. The Arrangement.

What I’m Listening To. Missing Richards Simmons; where did the 80s workout icon go?

    Oh my gosh, I fell down the rabbit hole of “The Arrangement” too! I’m quite surprised by how much I like it! I highly recommend it to anyone on the fence about it.

    I can’t decide if I love or hate that Mango bag. It kind of looks like a picnic basket to me, but I’d like to see how you’d style it!

    Both links for the Express blouses take me to this:

    I know we’re all about “know your office” but I have a hard time imagining that’s appropriate for most workplaces… 😉

      You beat me to it. I snorted when I clicked the link and saw the results.

    I’m getting on the Axios bandwagon too! So far so good, but I’ve found that subscribing to all of their newsletters is a bit much in the mornings. Others that I’ve stuck with are the Broadsheet (quality analysis focused on women), Polar News (pairs articles with polarized perspectives so you can see both sides), SigDigs (love the 538 soundbites), and theSkimm.

    I’m listening to “Missing Richard Simmons” too. It’s a great podcast. I’m addicted to podcasts now and I listen during my work outs. I usually just lift weights (right now) and I can’t get through a work out without a good podcast.
    Have you listened to Serial (season 1)- if so then you should listen to Undisclosed. I just discovered it and I’m mesmerized. It’s lawyers breaking down the case and it’s fascinating. Whether you think Adnan did or not you can’t argue that there is no way he should have been convicted based on the evidence.
