This was a great week for me. On Monday, the interview that my sister and I taped with Pittsburgh Today Live aired (more on that below), we had some gorgeous weather this week, and I have a low-key weekend planned. We have more warm weather in the forecast so I’m hoping to do some outdoor reading and just enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
On to the favorites.
My Interview on Pittsburgh Today Live
Okay, this one was SO FUN. My sister and I got to talk to Celina Pompeani Mathison on Pittsburgh Today Live about our lives and SMA for an interview that aired on Rare Disease Day. It was such a fun experience!! I still haaaaate listening to the sound of my own voice, but it was worth it for this.
Bone, Marry, Bury Podcast
Okay – I am not typically a podcast person. I have tried!! But I’d been hearing so many good things about Bone, Marry, BuryTo that I had to give it a try. I like it because it’s different – it’s basically a romance book but in podcast form. SO much fun, and now I can’t wait for the next episode! Plus, the cast is truly incredible. Sarah Hyland! Adam Pally! Tommy Martinez! Highly, highly recommend, whether you’re a podcast person or not.
Briogeo Scalp Revival Shampoo
Grace talked about this on her blog the new Briogeo scalp revival shampoo this week and I hit “add to cart” almost immediately. My hair / scalp is suuuuper oily, so I’m really excited to try something with salicylic acid that also won’t overdry my hair. I’ll report back after I’ve used it for a while!
Rep. Ayanna Pressley + Clothes of our Lives
This is such a great interview with Rep. Ayanna Pressley! As someone who really understands the role that fashion and style can play in making a statement about your identity, I especially loved this discussion. And I also really loved Rep. Pressley’s admission that she’s still coming to terms with her new appearance. It’s such a powerful read.
Help Ukranians with Disabilities
I know there are so many different ways to show support for Ukraine right now, but this GoFundMe hits home for me. I’ve been thinking a lot about how disabled people in Ukraine are doing right now – it’s so much harder to evacuate when you’re disabled. If you’re able, this is a great way to directly help people who are disproportionately affected by the invasion.
