4. Tanis Podcast-


Tanis has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. I'm still working my way through past episodes, but I feel pretty confident in recommending it to people. I will warn you; it is dark, so if you're not into horror, this one may not be for you. But if you love a good mystery, check out Tanis. 

And if I might suggest, go ahead & listen while taking a long walk out in a forest or green space. It will definitely add to the mood of the podcast!

5. Fight Like a Girl-


Since the first time I saw the '92 animated series & started collecting X-Men cards , Jubilee has been one of my favorite mutants! A print of Heather Mahler's illustration is definitely going on my to-be-purchased list!

5. This Graduation Speech-


Whether you're a recent graduate or just need some inspiration & laughs today, look no further than Lin-Manuel Miranda's commencement speech at University of Pennsylvania. It isn't as wonderfully poignant as his recent Tony acceptance speech, but it's a slow burn. Now, I know you'd probably rather do anything than watch a 15+ minute YouTube video, but trust me; this one is worth it. What can I say? I've got a thing for genuine artists who aren't afraid to encourage others to do what they love, despite the odds constantly screaming to do otherwise.

3. Hamilton the Musical-


This may come as a shock to you, but I don't care for most musical theater. I can count the shows I love on one hand & the shows I've actually shelled out money to see on stage on just a few fingers, but damn, ya'll. 

Seriously.  

Imma need to see this show. Now, I'm not saying I'm going to sell my left kidney to get to New York to see it, but I'm not NOT saying that, either. I was listening to the the soundtrack in the car the other day & "It's Quiet Uptown" brought me to tears. Like full-on ugly crying. Be warned.


4. This Print Says it All-

More Links to Love-


-I read this story about an 18 year old girl who had no one come to her birthday party. I'll be sending her a 19th birthday card this weekend. You can, too!
-Again, contrary to what this blog post shows, I'm not a serious broadway nut, but this is so choice! Watch to the end, you won't be sorry!
-This is a gang I want to be a part of!
-Fashion as art. Art as fashion.
-I'm a sucker for packaging & anything remotely connected to Wes Anderson. So, this basically has my name all over it!

Happy Friday, Friends!

-Another cactus shirt. Oh, have I shocked you?
-These dino crayons are the top! I know they're meant for kids, but I kind of want a set for myself!
-These pajama pants are amazing! Look at the hot air balloons! But the price is a bit steep for sleepwear!

Happy Friday, Friends!

3. Giant Lawn Yahtzee? Sign me up-


I wonder if Rick would help me make this, even though he hates board games?! Surely giant games are an exception? 


4. The Adored Life & Alissa's Comments on Body Confidence-


I've been reading The Adored Life for about a year & a half. Early this week I found Alissa's blog post on her journey to not hating her thighs & I actually thought, "Girl, did you write this for me? Are you in my head right now?!" But I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought that. The truth is, Alissa is right when she says, "I have never, ever, ever heard a woman say one nice thing about their thighs. I have never heard myself say one nice thing about my thighs. You know what? I have held myself back for way to long because of the size of my thighs." 

You may or may not know that I have been on a bit of a fitness & mental health journey over the last year. I've been running, eating better & trying to keep a more positive outlook on life. But I'll be damned if I didn't actually think to myself only a few short weeks ago as the temps were rising, "I'll break out my shorts when I've lost just a little more weight." Then I started thinking about all the times I didn't do something because of insecurities. All the times I was waiting for the perfect moment or feeling to take part in something I really wanted to do. And I thought about how sad that is! And you know what? I put on some shorts I recently picked up at Goodwill, looked in the mirror & said, "You look FABULOUS, darling!" Maybe I'm not at my ideal weight. Maybe I won't ever be! But I'm getting stronger every day & I feel good! Being healthy was always my number one goal going into this past year & I think that I've accomplished that & I'm going to continue to accomplish it because this is a journey, after all! Huge thanks to Alissa for reminding me that I've only got one life to live & that life should definitely involve some cute shorts! 


Isn't she gorgeous!
