Friday Favorites

We’ve had incredible, spring-like weather this week, and I have been absolutely soaking it in. I have been taking lunch breaks to read out on the patio, and even took my laptop outside to work for a few hours. It has been so, so nice, especially with the lighter evenings out – it’s 7:30 pm and there’s still some brightness coming in through the windows! It does so much for me and my mood.

I also got my first needlepoint canvas in the mail this week, and I’m really excited to start working on it over the weekend. Historically, I am not a super artsy-craftsy person, but this seems like the perfect activity to do while watching TV or audiobooking, and I can’t wait.

On to the week’s favorites!

Behind the Scenes at the Oscars

This year, I watched all of the Best Picture nominees for the Oscars, so of course I also watched the awards to see who and what won. And this article is a really fun behind-the-scenes peek from someone who was actually there. I loved all the little tidbits – especially all the celebrity sightings and what was overheard out in the lobby by the bar.

Madewell Insiders Sale

Madewell has 25% off right now for all Insiders – it’s free to sign up and become a member, and there’s no code needed for the discount! I especially love this leather-trimmed straw tote, this smocked midi dress, this striped dress, this flowy poplin skirt, these woven flats, and these studded flats.

Eras Tour on Disney+

The full version of the Eras Tour – with some bonus songs from the acoustic part of the set – is finally available on Disney+! This will be perfect to put on and watch while I work on my needlepoint, so it’s really great timing for me.

The Cost to Child Influencers

I am not a parent, but I thought this was a really interesting article on the “cost” to child influencers – both mentally and financially – featured heavily on their parents’ accounts. It goes into the (lack of) financial protections that exist for the work they do, and has some interviews with different family creators and bloggers of how they handle featuring their children on their channels – and what happens to their opportunities when they stop. As content creation becomes an increasingly popular career choice, I think it’s something important to keep in mind.

Everlane Friends and Family Sale

Everlane also has a Friends and Family Sale going on right now – 25% off, with no code needed. I especially love this cardigan, this crewneck sweater, this tank ribbed dress and this short-sleeved version, this flowy shirtdress and this one that’s cinched at the waist, and this canvas tote.
