Helen Dunmore has such a lush style of writing that you often don’t notice she’s sucking you into a maelstrom of subtle discord until it’s too late. Talking to the Dead is the first book by her I’d ever read and her literary style is absolutely amazing, combining the understated unease of family dynamics with the terror of repressed memories and the unacknowledged horror of how our childhoods can not only screw us up, but others as well.
Nina, a London photographer, comes to stay with her sister, Isabel, who has just given birth to her first child. Isabel’s gay best friend Edward has also come to stay. Nina’s brother-in-law Richard soon starts playing a major role in her life as she cooks for her sister and begins remembering the mysterious death of her and Isabel’s infant brother. The descriptions of a long, hot, drought-ridden summer in England resonate with…

It’s the end of an era. Or at least, the official end of the Star Wars films. I haven’t actually seen the last film, but I have an idea of how it ends. Don’t spoil it for me in the comments! That being said, part of what I did to prepare for this end game was to watch the original trilogy over the weekend. I’d forgotten I had it and it was such a great trip down memory lane. I still remember seeing Star Wars: A New Hope for the very first time as a kid at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe. I was blown away, as I think every impressionable kid and teenager was at the time.
It’s definitely a cultural icon, if you think about it. How many movie lines can you quote? I can probably quote all three of the original trilogy, so don’t watch with…

One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is whipping out cozy pieces and finding new ways to style my comfy classics. In recent years, I’ve also loved putting intentionality into the gifts I give to others, and shopping sustainably and ethically whenever possible. This post combines both, integrating couple responsibly-made capsule classics with styling creativity!
Mott & Bow kindly gifted me a pair of their Boyfriend Jeans, along with this lovely Cashmere Crewneck Sweater to review, and I’ve decided to do so by showing first-hand just how versatile these classic pieces are!
The brand’s mission is to create elevated basics, at grounded prices. Founded by Alejandro Chahin, Mott & Bow began as a Kickstarter selling solely mens premium denim at accessible prices. Utilizing a direct-to-consumer model and manufacturing all pieces in Chahin’s family’s mill in Honduras, Mott & Bow has since expanded their offerings to womenswear, and…

2019 was not only the end of a decade but also the year where the beauty industry EXPLODED with new products. If it wasn’t every day, it sure felt like it. This was the first year, in I don’t know how long, that I am not a Sephora VIB member. I didn’t spend enough to keep my status through 2020, and I’m actually okay with it. This past year had me feeling more overwhelmed than excited when it came to beauty launches. It was to the point where I had to unfollow TrendMood because I couldn’t handle the amount of “new product” posts that kept popping up on my feed.
With all the products that came out I had a list of things I did wish that I had bought, but there was also a list of things that I knew weren’t necessary; and that’s the list I’ll be sharing…

“What could nightlife be if you actually took away all the vices and leave the good stuff, the magic, the joy, the self-expression — and do it in the morning?” asks Radha Agrawal, a founder, speaker, and the author of Belong: Find Your People, Create Community, and Live a More Connected Life. When Radha turned 30, she felt like she didn’t belong, and that she “sleepwalked and coasted through her twenties.” An entrepreneur who creates solutions to social problems, she had an aha! moment — and her morning dance party, Daybreaker, was born.
Today, Daybreaker has grown into a network of 500,000+ members in 28 cities (and counting) around the world. Each event begins with an hour of yoga and fitness, followed by a few hours of dancing — all before you start your work day.
These sober dance parties are about wellness, mindfulness, and self-expression, “across…
