We loved this interview with Brandie Gilliam, founder of Thoughtfully magazine.

We have been catching up on the New York Times Sunday Routines series — each week provides a relaxing and unique glimpse into a person’s Sunday routine.

This article from MindBodyGreen is very helpful in discerning whether you have warm or cool undertones (plus there may be an Alima Pure shout out tucked in there somewhere).

This Self-Care Catcher made by Esme Blegvad for Rookie is half slumber party nostalgia, half very solid life advice.


Calling all old mascara wands—Wands for Life is collecting old wands to remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of wild animals.

Design Week Portland is chock-full of free or low-cost events hosted by the creative community in Portland. It’s hard to pick a favorite event, but we do have our eyes on this one.

Portland State University is hosting a whole week of Earth Events, including a Beekeeping Workshop, and an E-Waste Collection event where they will be collecting anything that uses electricity whether or not it’s in working condition. 

A great guide to Earth Day Clean Ups all throughout Portland.

Orchids are said to symbolize love, luxury, beauty, and strength. Plus they’re lovely to look at. Enjoy a day full of rare and various orchids and the Portland Orchid Show.


We love the hilariously tangential aspect of Glowing Up, a podcast from Esther Povitsky and Caroline Goldfarb, which makes you feel like you’re hanging with friends and is filled with beauty tips and fun guests.

Why does music have the power to give us the chills? We learned in this episode of Every Little Thing, one of our fave podcasts from Gimlet Media.
