Just A List Of Things That Made Me Smile Today

Do you ever experience those days (weeks, months) that seem to have one purpose and one purpose alone – the destruction of your will? Wednesdays do that to me; it’s the middle of the week, and I’m usually too exhausted to find the joy in being closer to Friday. I’ve been feeling like burrowing into my sheets for 1-2 years, so today I kicked my mental self-care into high-gear by looking at beautiful things, reading good news, and sharing time with people who just get me. Here’s a list of some of the things that made me think twice about never leaving the warmth and safety of my bed.

Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder are doing a rom-com (!!)

These two are in most of favorite movies From my younger years- Edward Scissorhands, Mermaids, The Matrix, Speed – including starring together in one of my all-time faves Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola. So, finding out that they’re going to be doing a cheesy movie about hating each other, then (undoubtedly) falling for one another is what I am genetically here for. Here’s the trailer. Drool with me.

Don’t even judge me for being into their predictable personalities and one-liners!


Savage x Fenty Lingerie is inclusive

Robin Rihanna Fenty is a force to be reckoned with. Not only does this unfairly gorgeous woman have a music career to die for, but she’s got her foot on the necks of fashionistas around the globe. It just seemed inevitable that she would dip into the world of makeup.    Now, she’s set her sights on clothing with her new lingerie line. What I , and others, loved about Fenty Beauty was how she worked to represent every shade for people. That seems like the natural course to take, however you’d be surprised how many shades of beige exist next to our 3 options for women of color. I shouldn’t have been surprised to discover Savage x Fenty would come in many shades of nude and larger sizes. Rihanna is setting a business model that the world had better catch up to.

Net Neutrality is Safe

A win for common sense. There’s not much more I need to say.
