Well, that happened…
Saw I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO the other night. I thought I would be even more upset at the state of the current world, looking back. The doc was powerful and moving. For me, it was a reminder of our resilience in the face of hatred, oppression and death. Instead of being emotionally triggered, I’m more focused on the life I need to lead and the world we need to not recreate. Def check it out.
Shopping Carts, now emptied.
The new Laura Mercier Medium Deep Translucent Setting Powder. Yes, I’m late getting the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Charlotte Tilbury limited edition Pillow Talk lipstick.
Moratorium on pinky/mauve-y nude/neutral lip purchases is now in FULL EFFECT! There needs to be a shopping ban, in general, but, you know, I’m not sure I see it happening. Must visualize. Si Se Pu… Okay. Okay.
Girls. With the sixth and final season kicking off on Sunday, I am heading down that rabbit hole, willfully. Watching all of It, again. I’ve got plenty of feelings when it comes to Hannah Horvath and her crew. Like, lots. I’ve loved and hated the show, viscerally. And with that, toss in a mix of pursed lip, hard side-eyeing white privilege and NYC in-my-20s nostalgia and it just gets complicated. I’m really interested to see if I react differently to the earlier seasons. I’ll let you know next week.
My internet obsession, NYT’s Jenna Wortham, talked to Lena, Allison, Zosia and Jemima. Part of the conversation is on my fave podcast, Still Processing. (more about my weekly appt with Wesley and Jenna, later.)
I haven’t worked a red carpet or one-on-one room in YEARS. I don’t even think I’ve watched The Grammys that much in the last 10, but I do know that I really, really, need AMAZEBALLS tributes to Prince and George Michael. Like, srsly.
And I’m going to need black folks to give Moonlight lots of things. Like, SRSLY.
