I think this is a genius bit of cultural criticism (and I haven’t even listened to the song, and I don’t think you need to at all in order to get where Lily Puckett is coming from).
This /r/AsianBeauty thread on peptides was super interesting reading, particularly since I’ve added The Ordinary’s “Buffet” peptide product to my routine. (I’m currently avoiding the unpleasant smell by using a single drop of product around my eyes and on my forehead.) Even if I don’t stick with the “Buffet” long-term, I think I’m always going to want a peptide product in my routine!
This New Yorker story by Lauren Collins on the racist history of a barbecue chain was super interesting to read. My vote: nope, it’s still not okay to eat there. But do read the article!
Collins opens her piece with an anecdote about Kathleen Purvis throwing down the claim that “men are the new carpetbaggers of Southern food writing.” Purvis’ piece at the Bitter Southerner is also a great read; she really does know how use a snappy line (and makes some highly valid claims).
(Also: yes, sorry about the title of this post.)
Not that I need anyone to approve of my (mostly) all-denim all-the-time wardrobe, but it’s nice to know that Kim France approves of a “Canadian Tuxedo.”
Damn, Rahawa Haile is a badass. Some incredible physical, mental, and emotional fortitude on display here. You must read this one.
Oh my gosh.
This house tour is danged cute–I could definitely live there (minus the kids rooms, lol). And how great is the ‘cocktail room’ moniker? Usually when I dream of owning my own place, I think about how nice it would be to have an art/craft studio. But a whole room devoted to drinking? That’s is a GOAL.
I’m not really into podcasts, but I’ve heard enough vague stuff about S-Town to make me curious about the story. Here is a spoiler-y article that raises some very valid points about the ethics of the reporting. It sounds super problematic, and now I definitely won’t be forcing myself to listen.
I kind of love this necklace? If only it came in gold…
I really dig Bobby Finger’s writing on Jezebel. I’m actually super disappointed that Midweek Madness has been discontinued in favour of a podcast, because MM was a Wednesday highlight for me. But thank heavens Bobby’s here to recap the most important part of Tom Hiddleston’s new GQ profile, and let us know was up with that “I [heart] T.S.” tank top.
