Welcome to “Obsessed,” a series sharing recent discoveries and interesting things from across the internet, like stuff you should know, trending articles, products I don’t know how I lived without, and more! And since I tend to overuse the term “obsessed,” this should be a fairly frequent column.
And, of course, please let me know what you’re digging lately in the comments! It’s all about sharing the latest finds and cool stuff with each other, and I know I’m certainly not the be-all-end-all of what’s trending (as much as I might like to pretend otherwise).
Fun fact: I took Latin in high school and a little bit in college as well. And, believe it or not, it’s actually served me well in a couple of areas. One: sort of being able to translate “nolite te bastardes carborundorum” when I read The Handmaid’s Tale, even though it’s not real Latin. Two: Roman numerals. Like in the title of this post series. In fact, if this goes long enough, my Latin knowledge will really come in handy. (Also useful for Super Bowls).
Anyway! Let’s get into my latest obsessions and discoveries, shall we?
ONE. I’m a daily coffee drinker who wishes she were actually a daily matcha drinker. Well + Good has a handy little chart comparing the different types of caffeine sources — including amounts, approximate duration and whether or not you’ll crash. The 3pm slump is so real, you guys.
TWO. I’m actually a huge, huge nerd. Like, not even a secret one either. Get me started on Game of Thrones or Harry Potter and I’ll go on for days. And of course Star Wars is in that category, too. I mean, have you SEEN the new trailer for The Last Jedi? I have theories on theories on theories. If you haven’t, go watch it. If you have, maybe go watch it again, but then come back because Daisy Ridley is Vogue’s November cover star and they did a 73 Questions video with her! And you know how much I love these 73 Questions videos.
THREE. I want my tote bag to say I’m a working millennial with a Mansur Gavriel Mini Mini bucket bag, but I’m pretty sure all it actually says is “one time I did SoulCycle four times in one week and they gave me a tote bag for it.”
FOUR. How amazing is this bold black-and-white studio with pops of gold and blush? Especially that pink door! I love the subtle “hangry” word art in the kitchen — which also features the unconventional placement of a bath mat that works surprisingly well.
FIVE. And finally, Free People is selling crystal water bottles for a ridiculous amount of money but maybe I kind of want one?
