Often when we read the news we feel compelled to do something but we don’t know how. Action Button is an interactive technology featured on news content to make it faster and easier for you to impact the stories you care about — whether by donating to a nonprofit, signing a petition, or emailing a local policymaker. Don’t just read the headlines, change them.
Slow Factory created a series of 8 scarves dedicated to women that inspire. This one with Amelia Erhart is my favorite. She was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean – a trailblazer of a woman!
Wage Islands by Ekene Ijeoma is an interactive installation about wage and housing inequality in NYC. It’s a 3d topographic map of monthly housing costs submerged in water to show where New Yorkers can afford to live based on hourly wages.
I recently purchased The Know Yourself Cards for Self-Exploration by The School Of Life and they sure keep me on my toes. I am currently trying to answer one question a night. This one in particular has hit home. I might have to rethink how I prioritize the things that are seemingly important to me.
The bar for the “most creative job application” ever received has been raised. Last week, Ryan Beller dropped off a white box with a beautifully arranged ViewMaster inside. Clicking through it revealed his resume and cover letter. Consider me (and the rest of team Tattly) impressed!
Update: We offered him the job. And, he accepted. So, YAY!
“When we remove ego, we’re left with what is real. What replaces ego is humility, yes—but rock-hard humility and confidence. Whereas ego is artificial, this type of confidence can hold weight. Ego is stolen. Confidence is earned.”

I recently started keeping a list of things I didn’t buy. I look back at it often and it fills me with all the good feels. The list reminds me that many of the things I think I NEED TO HAVE would end up very quickly just becoming STUFF. Marie Kondo’s approach, by simply asking “does this bring me joy” has changed the way I look at anything I own. But best of all, my “I didnt’ buy this list” is a great reminder of money I saved.
For the last two months I have been wearing this “watch” and it has quickly become my favorite accessory. As someone who constantly worries about what’s ahead, it’s been a successful way for me to remind myself to stay in the moment! And, the personal reminder on the back of the watch, which is customizable, reminds me be kind to myself.
So much respect to Micah Davis, the founder of Matters for coming up with this beauty. It’s not only beautiful and useful, but also a huge conversation starter.
This is a game designed to sharpen our sense of what we should be looking for in love. It comprises a number of cards which describe some leading habits and character traits in people, inviting us to reflect on what truly matters to us and what we could endure, if we had to. Curious about this. Ordering.
