What caught my eye this week

February 20, 2021

Bits and Bobs - Here's what caught my eye this week. (I used to share these on Instagram as Saved Stuff Sunday.)

ICYMI on Friday, I wrote the GNI editor’s note about my experience being mixed race along with an interview with Jenny Han and it received SO many positive responses. I loved getting all your DM’s and hearing your stories. Thanks for sharing!

I really want to watch Minari, the film by Steven Yeun. A bunch of you have said you’ve already seen it via the A24 online screening, which I'll probably do.

This house featured in Vogue caught my eye - it's so whimsical and magical. The garden! The shed! The kids rooms! Feels like Europe but it’s in Brooklyn.

Could you ever become a minimalist? Quarantine brought out the maximalist in everyone, but I’m now seeing lots of articles pop up about minimalism. I go back and forth and ultimately, I don’t think minimalism is realistic for me. I love stuff and knick knacks way too much. Don’t get me wrong though, I love a good clean-out and Konmari sesh and as I grow older, I am getting more thoughtful about purchasing less, but higher quality pieces for my closet and home.

Have you seen the latest SNL featuring the Duke from Bridgerton (Regé-Jean Page)?! So good.

Completely random, but does anyone else love Emma Corrin? She is so talented for such a young actor. I loved her in The Crown and fell more in love with her after watching this “what’s in your bag?” segment in British Vogue.

I love these reminders from Toni Morrison. Like many of you, this time has forced me to untangle my identity and self worth from my work. The first step for me is to really make sure I’m spending time on hobbies that are just for fun - like writing, gardening, and interior design. These spark joy for me and have nothing to do with work...

Relatedly, I love this pie chart graphic from Liz and Mollie describing a great balance.

Look at these gorgeous poppies! I’m attempting to grow my own from seed this year. It looks very difficult but we will see. More to come in a gardening-specific update.

I’m starting the design process for our guest bedroom and this sage green and white color palette is giving me lots of inspiration.

That's all for this week!
