LINKS I LOVE
The Multidimensional Poverty Index– a really important tool for assessing development. I really want to learn more about this!
This artist’s drawings of his clients asking him for free work. Just, yes.
Ryan Reynolds tweeting about parenting is all of us. Hilarious. Warning; some language.
This map with WIFI passwords for airports all over the world. The number of times I’ve wished for this to exist….
The Facebook page “Africa, This Is Why I Live Here.” I don’t know how I stumbled on this, but it is both hilarious and gives a good window into Africa life 🙂
I’m laugh-crying this morning at Robin Wright saying that Trump stole all the ideas for House of Cards season 6 ?
This article on flipping the narrative of scary birth stories. Real! I had a scary birth with Halle, and I was really intentional about ready very positive birth stories while pregnant with Shepherd to help myself jump the mental hurdle that birth would always be super hard. My birth with Shep was worlds different!
And speaking of birth- this writeup on the difference between a doula and a midwife, and why your midwife can’t be both. I didn’t get this with Halle but did with Shepherd, and it made a big difference in how I viewed my care.
This lovely and enlightening piece about the work of Fannie Lou Hamer and the creation of food systems in the south to alleviate poverty in the 1960’s. Go girl!
This hilarious and spot-on article, “10 Reasons You Should Be a Missionary.”
Becky Thompson’s (of Scissortail Silk) words to mompreneurs: don’t miss the people in front of you. I have found this to be so true in my business and it’s served me well.
Lara Casey is one of my favorite people. I got an advance copy of her new book, Cultivate, and it’s excellent! You can preorder now and get a TON of bonuses- so worth it!
THINGS IM LOVING
Texas Cup Factory! I love my RTIC cup but these powder coats, y’all…..
Awesome with Alison podcast. I’m addicted. I have a huge crush on Alison and it’s on my bucket list to go to one of her parties. Her podcast is equal parts fun and business/branding advice. Love it!
Listen, I absolutely LOVE my Coach diaper bag (4 years and it still looks brand new) but I am SO crushing on these ergonomic backpack types. And the colors are so good!
Koala Crate. We got one for free with a bundle we got last month, and it’s the cutest! Each box is themed and has games and crafts for your preschooler 🙂
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater. My favorite for flying and also spraying midday. Cheap and refreshing!
DoTERRA’s Root to Tip Hair Serum. I’m actually using it on my eyebrows to help fill them in, and on my hairline which is receding #postpartumhairlossisreal but this stuff works! My eyebrows are already looking more full!
