What a whirlwind the past few weeks have been, especially this last one! Things have been a bit hectic around to say the least, but I’m looking forward to the breathing a bit this weekend, hopefully beating this awful cold that just won’t seem to go away, and getting back on track, in hopes of posting more in this space. All that said, I hope your weekend is filled with rest and relaxation. Here are this week’s ten things…

1. This bad lip reading from Donald Trump’s inauguration made me LOL!

2. Glossier just released their Priming Moisturizer Rich, and I love it! Use this link to receive 20% off your first order.

3. The 2017 Oscar nominations are in! Who do you predict will win this year?

4. College kids can now study “The Politics of Kanye West”.

5. A look at the Women’s March 2017 from around the globe.

6. These Esby Apparel Duffy Jumpers are like fashion-forward pajamas. So comfortable!

7. Hillbilly Elegy and Between The World and Metwo important books I’m looking forward to read in 2017.

8. Could a sequel to “Donnie Darko” be in the works?

9. To get through the thick of winter, here are 27 recipes to make for someone who has the flu.

    I was so proud to be a DC resident on January 21, which was a nice change from January 20. I almost feel sorry for him, moving to a city that so clearly does not welcome or want him. Ha ha, no I don’t.

    The photos from all of the marches around the world are so beautiful, comforting, and inspiring. Happy you shared or I would not have seen them all together!

    Hello! I read Hillbilly Elegy and Between the World and Me last year, and certainly recommend both. If you have time for one more, I actually found Coates’ previous book, This Beautiful Struggle, equally, if not more, compelling. I think what it captures is how much the same struggle Coates’ father faced remains today.

    Coates’ father also reminds me very much of the fictionalized mother in Zadie Smith’s latest novel as well–Swing Time.

    Finally, The Performance of Becoming Human, the poetry by David Borzutzky that won this past year’s National Book Award for Poetry, alerts us to another perspective of this world we live in.

    Happy reading.
