Links I love

Happy Oaks Day! It’s Derby weekend here in Louisville, which means the kids are off school, the groceries are overflowing with red roses and mint, and there’s a party feel in the air. I won’t be going anywhere near the track, but I’m looking forward to watching the race at a Derby party (think Superbowl party, but with a much shorter main event!).

I hope you have something to look forward to this weekend, and that this list of interesting reads and favorite things helps ease you into that weekend frame of mind.

The Summer Reading Guide is coming!

Speaking of things we’re looking forward to—the 2022 Summer Reading Guide is almost here! The guide drops on May 23. We’d love to have you join us for our live Unboxing (aka the best book party of the year). Click here for all the details on how to get your guide and how to join us for Unboxing!

My favorite finds from around the web:

  • The Sun Safety Kit from Sephora is back! Sample a whole bunch of fan fave sunscreens. This sells out every year so get it while you can.
  • Team member Chelsey wants you to know she wore this floral jumpsuit last weekend and got sooo many compliments! Bonus: the puffed sleeves make her think of Anne Shirley.
  • I continue to reference last year’s Summer Reading Guide book Laundry Love ALL THE TIME for various pesky stain and spill situations. We had a bit of a situation involving an ink pen this week so at the book’s suggestion I finally got acquainted with Amodex. Highly recommend.

    I am physically very ill and mentally challenged right now. and need audio books that are not too stressful and calming but interesting.

    I am listening to the The dictionary of lost words, and liked The house on the cerulean sea and enchanted April.

      All Creatures Great and Small is my favorite audiobook. It is wonderful! Hoping things improve for you.

    I’ve been OBSESSED with Laundry Love ever since you put it on my radar. I’ve redone my whole laundry room, and it’s actually become one of my favorite “chores” to do. Highly recommend!!

    I was fascinated with the article about Archivists and what they will save from the pandemic, because both my sister and I have taken pictures to remember it by, as well as keeping journals. Hers have more statistics, and mine have more “how it affected MY life” commentary. Of course, I will save all my colored and clothes-matching masks!

    I was also interested in the 80s movie list—some of those were R’s and I wasn’t allowed to watch them, some I saw later on TV when they were “cut”. My faves were Princess Bride, Dirty Dancing, and then Uncle Buck, Moonstruck, Baby Boom and Steel Magnolias from the auxiliary list.
