Friday Favorites

I hope that you all enjoy your long weekend! I took a few extra days off to really enjoy, so I’m looking forward to that. I say this at the end of every month I think, but I can’t believe that it’s almost June! May flew by, but I’m excited for June and the full return of summer and sunshine.

Heather, a white woman in a power wheelchair, is wearing a bright pink/red off the shoulder dress with purple embroidery on the top. She's outside in her back yard with some bright flowers around her.

On Monday this week, I got to take part in the Salon Conversations series (virtually) that’s been going on every Monday. The Salon Pittsburgh is a local women’s club centered around relationship building, connections, and growth. I was so honored to be invited to talk about my work as an advocate. You can listen to the conversation here – it was so much fun, and I’m hoping to stay involved with them!

On to this week’s favorites!

Special on Netflix

If you haven’t watched this show yet, you absolutely should! It brings queer, disabled representation to the forefront and does it in a hilarious and relatable way. I loved this interview with the creator/star – he addresses so many important disability issues.

Equilibria Sale

Equilibria has an amazing sale going on right now – 25% off sitewide and free shipping through Monday! You can read about my experience with Equilibria here and here – my favorite products are the Extra Strength Daily Drops, the Relief Balm, and their new Calming Melts. Reminder – you can use code REFHEATHER.TOMKO for $20 off your first order!

Leopard Maxi Dress

I have been doing some (okay… too much) online shopping this week, but I came across this leopard maxi dress and just couldn’t resist. It looks so easy and cute, and it’s super affordable! I have a lot of tank top/strapless maxis, but way fewer with sleeves, so this will be a great addition to my closet.

Song Association with Sara Bareilles

I love Sara Bareilles – if you haven’t watched her in the new show Girls5Eva, add that to your list, too – it’s about a 90s one-hit-wonder girl group who reunite years later, and it’s so funny. But I always love watching Song Association videos to see what songs my favorite artists listen to, and to see how many I recognize! Always fun.

Intersectionality of Frida Kahlo

One more video of me! I had the immense privilege of talking with Heather Arnet of the Women and Girls Foundation about Frida Kahlo, her art, disability, feminism, and intersectionality. I had the absolute best time! If you’re in the area, you have just a few days left to catch the Frida Kahlo exhibit at The Frick, and I really really recommend it.
