It’s the last Friday of the month, so you know what that means! Time for another installment of VMS Digest, my new monthly roundup of the best articles, links, memes, and companies you need to know about now. I hope you enjoy!
FUN STUFF I LOVED READING
WHAT MAKES A MCMANSION BAD? // Paloma shared a link to this Tumblr over on Facebook, and I had way too much fun reading the posts! Especially this one, on what makes McMansions such bad architecture. Not knowing a ton about architectural terms and best practices, this was so interesting to read!
ALL ABOUT LEE // A totally dishy, curl-up-with-a-cup-of-coffee weekend read about Lee Radziwill, and her complicated relationship with her sister, Jackie Kennedy.
OFFICE TOUR // Do you like reading Man Repeller? I do! So I loved seeing this little tour of the new MR offices, as featured on Architectural Digest.
BREWMASTER // Fun personal anecdote: Joe has been brewing kombucha at home for the last couple of months. And I have to say — he’s really mastered it. With all the amazing summer fruit that’s been available, he’s come up with some amazing flavors. Better than anything we could ever buy! So it was with great pleasure that I sent him this behind the scenes piece on Health-Ade Kombucha, which you’ve probably seen in your local grocery store. Especially because the way they brew is exactly how we’re doing it at home, too: glass canister, cloth cover. I think we’re officially west coasters.
THE DREADED INTROVERT HANGOVER // Ugh, I knew this was a thing! For anyone else who is also an introvert, you’ll totally recognize the symptoms of introvert hangover.
SLEEPING ON AIRPLANES // No, not for passengers — for the crew. Did you know that many planes have a secret crew cabin, with multiple beds? This behind the scenes look at airplane crew quarters was oddly fascinating.
