Friday Favorites

I don’t know about you, but I’m really glad that this weekend is a long one! I’m definitely looking forward to the extra day – and I’m actually extending it even more and taking off Tuesday because it’s my BIRTHDAY! I hope that some of you get to enjoy a long weekend, too.

And now, on to the favorites!

Miami Hotel Lobby Candle

Okay, I have seen/heard SO many rave reviews of this candle that I could not resist trying it out for myself. My hopes and expectations were very high – everyone basically said that it’s their best scent yet! It’s the first one that I tried, so I don’t have a comparison, but WOW does it smell good. People have been calling it a sexy scent and… they’re not wrong! It’s bergamot and cedar and amber and just really, really good.

Pittsburgh Area Teacher Amazon Wishlist

A very sweet learning support teacher in the Pittsburgh area reached out to me and asked me to share her Amazon Wishlist for her classroom. She’s trying to build a diverse library for her students, and she has some great books on her list! If you’re able, please consider buying a book or two for her library. Teachers and students could use all the extra help they can get this year especially!

Including Race in Alt Text Descriptions

This is a great video from disability activist powerhouse Haben Girma on including race when you’re writing alt text / image descriptions. As a Deafblind woman, Haben is an expert on this topic and knows what she’s talking about. It’s a really important thing to keep in mind!

Sarah Flint Saccheto Ballet Flat

How adorable are these Sarah Flint flats for fall?! I love the deep brown color and the little extra detail of the tortoise toe cap. Just the perfect flat for this time of year.

Don’t forget – use SARAHFLINT-BAHEATHERREPORT for $50 off your first pair!!

The Demise of the Girlboss

I really liked this article about the rise and fall of the “girlboss.” It’s never been a term that I loved – it always seemed a little bit infantalizing to me. I do love finding and supporting women-owned businesses, but agree that the whole ethos associated with girlboss went a little bit far. I hope we can find some sort of happy medium.
