Internet Gems No. 1


Dear readers,

I am writing this post in my bedroom with the door shut in an effort to find some plausible relief via air-conditioning. As I’m sure I don’t need to tell many of you, it’s been H-O-T this week. And because the whole sun-plus-humidity aesthetic isn’t really my taste (I think Fitzgerald’s descriptions of the New York heat wave in Gatsby should come with trigger warnings), I’ve been spending most of my evenings indoors, reading mostly, but also exploring the Interwebs. Couple my current activity— or lack thereof?— with the realization that I haven’t done a “Week in Review” round-up in a hot minute, and you’ve got the formula for today’s post: Internet Gems, otherwise known as the food for thought (and stomach) that I’ve come across in the past few weeks, and want to share with you here. So, to find out where my brain is at with all things dressing, eating, breathing, and living, see the below…
