VMS Digest: Vol. XIV

PLEASE DON’T STOP THE MUSIC // I’ve shared before how instrumental the scoring of The Bachelor is (har har, no pun intended), and this past week, a similar piece about the studios scoring the Real Housewives franchises—now with music samples to play as you read! If you watch the shows, the samples will feel familiar, hilarious, and really telling!

INA! // I LOVED this interview with Ina Garten, published this past week! Her latest cookbook is out, hence her makin’ the rounds.

THE FIFTH RISK // You know Michael Lewis, yes? Author of Liar’s Poker, Moneyball, The BlindsideThe Big Short, and more? His latest book came out a couple weeks ago, and if you’re wondering what it’s about, here’s an excerpt. Though it deals with politics, I actually don’t think it’s political. Worth reading for sure.

KATE’S COMEBACK // Did you notice anything different about the Duchess of Cambridge’s return to the spotlight after maternity leave? She did seem even more confident, now that I think about it…

START SMALL // Korean adoptee Nicole Chung’s recently published memoir has been picking up steam and is everywhere right now! I also really enjoyed this essay she wrote about starting small with new endeavors, then working your way up.

LEARNING TO LIVE WITH MYSELF // One of my fave posts I read this past week, and one I could relate to a lot.

THE END OF THE WORLD, PART I // I realize at this point I’m just the old lady yelling at kids to get off my lawn, but I really don’t understand what the social media world has come to.

THE END OF THE WORLD, PART II // And then there’s this. Sorry to bum you out, but worth reading.

OF A FEATHER // Erica always has the best, most inventive DIYs, and these beautiful macrame wall decor feathers are no exception.

CAN BRITA FIX IT? // Eeeeesh. There’s apparently all types of microplastics in our water supply. Greeeeat. Maybe worth getting that water filtration system, huh?

DRAWING THE LINE // Loved Grace’s post about what the boundaries are when it comes to talking about your life on social media.

CAN YOU IMAGINE // If you were shopping in NY and popped into SJP and then there she was, retrieving shoes in your size?

RENT THE RUNWAY // I still have never ordered anything from RTR, but loved this behind the scenes look at the business and how it’s growing.

SO HOT, THAT… // Even my niece, currently attending university in China, is obsessed. Wait, you’ve watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before already, right?

MIC DROP // How far we’ve come, how far we have to go. A long Medium read on feminism.

A BIRTHDAY // I can’t believe it, but <em>press themes is already one year old! We’ve been doing a big birthday sale this past week, where you can get 20% off your entire purchase. Today’s the last day, so if you’re in the market for WordPress goodies, hop on over.


Happy weekend, everyone!
