Killers of the Flower Moon, Margaret Atwood on being in "Death's gazebo" and some delectable Cruel Intentions trivia
Thankyou! The brain fog does get better I promise. Although the logistics of 3 (slightly) bigger kids then kick in so my brain can still feel like mash some days. New to these posts and love them as I really miss the High Low!
Few beauty bits back…
Huda cream blush is great (love the pixi too)
Elf lilac cream eyeshadow if you are into blue this is a lovely alt
Manicurist active glow a great nail strengthened with tint of pink if you want an alt.
Just adding to the chorus of Merit commentary - it’s £32 from the Merit site and brilliant!
Radiolab (my favourite podcast) did an episode where Heather Radke talks about her book on butts! And the episode then meanders further in a super interesting way. Would highly recommend!
Can I recommend Mrs Bridges as a novella. It’s a short book from the 1950s, but it tells a woman’s entire life in vignettes. Every ‘chapter’ is a different, often inconsequential, daily incident and can be only half a page- at most 2-3, so perfect if you don’t have much time.
It’s beautiful and reminiscent of stoner
Yes, Apple driving me mad with the same weird, v wrong ‘autocorrects’! Arghhhhh
My brain short circuited when you spelled Khloe’s name with a C. 😁
Merit flush balm is £32! https://www.meritbeauty.com/products/flush-balm
Thank-you, off to Google all your recs. Xxx
All books by David Grann (including Killers of the Flower Moon) are fantastic non-fiction, highly recommended!
You had me at Cruel Intentions 😍
How lovely that you know it too! It is exactly as you describe, almost like opening the windows of an advent calendar into a different world. Gently profound as well.
I find it so fascinating how much our attention span has been affected by our phones/social media, especially when it comes to consuming long-form content! I often find that if I want to watch a film and completely focus I have to watch it at the cinema because I won’t get my phone out & there’s no option to pause or rewind but when I’m at home, I don’t always take it all in, esp when it’s long films
A wonderful podcast on the butt by Radiolab is this one: https://radiolab.org/podcast/man-against-horse. "It’s a story about how you got your butt, why you have your butt, and how your butt might be one of the most important and essential things for you being you, for being human." A great example of excellent science reporting, and very funny too.
Just the endorsement I was looking for peptide tint and nail strengthener!
Thank you for sharing! I need to work but really want to start reading your bits 😅
The Merit blush is $30 in the US and available at Sephora there. They must just be charging crazy prices to sell it in the UK. See if someone can get some in the US for you because it’s really good!
