What do you absolutely not need, but very much want?


Yes, those of you who were wondering, I’m still down for Fornasetti, and I’ve always had a thing for stars, and so this candle is just aces in my book.

I love this week’s podcast episode


We’ve got my old Oberlin classmate, the brilliant Claire Dederer on this week—she is the author of the badass coming-of-middle-age memoir Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning as well as an upcoming book on coming to terms with the art of bad men. The conversation is pretty wide-ranging: we discuss everything from what a midlife crisis looks like for women to the importance of knowing when to let go to the primacy of friendship. It’s a really engaging discussion, so please do listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

We got a lot of requests for this week’s podcast episode


Today we’ve got Sallie Krawcheck, widely regarded as one of the most senior women on Wall Street, who founded the women’s investment firm Ellevest. We’re talking money, and the differences between how women and men are socialized to think about investing; the most common mistakes women make with money; and the importance of knowing how to negotiate. The episode is full of interesting insights and solid strategy and practical advice, so do listen in, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
