David Byrne started a magazine called Reasons To Be Cheerful in which he and his team tell stories that reveal that there are, in fact, a surprising number of reasons to feel cheerful. Many of these reasons come in the form of smart, proven, replicable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Reasons to be Cheerful is here to tell you about some of them. Through sharp reporting, their stories balance a sense of healthy optimism with journalistic rigor, and find cause for hope. It is part magazine, part therapy session, part blueprint for a better world.
I love EVERYTHING about this.
I thought I had a lot of plants until I saw this house tour of Summer Rayne Oakes. I thoroughly enjoy what she shares on Instagram and I just ordered her book How To Make A Plant Love You. Also, she taught me how to fight Fungus Gnats. An overall lovely human. Also, I think her parents did an incredible job naming her. So much respect.
I was gifted this Monk Oil last week and it makes me happy. I believe it protects and supports me in my day to day, in this bustling city of NYC.

I love love love this Blue Floral Watercolor Tattly Set by Helen Dealtry.
There are some real gems in this conversation between Russell Brand & Brené Brown.
This really got me thinking. Are people doing the best they can? I want to believe they do.
Japanese couple Ryo and Hiromo Yamazaki create custom-made hats for their three cats out of the animals’ own shedded fur. I find this quite amusing.
This illustration by Hallie Bateman definitely speaks to me as I have been (and still am) working through my complicated relationship with money.
I have learned to realize that money is neutral. It’s energy that allows me to do more of what I want to do in the world.
I enjoyed Magic Money, by Holly Alexander on this topic. Is this something you relate to? Anything you have come across that has help you understand and improve your relationship to money?
A few weeks before my trip to Switzerland I purchased this simple leather crossbody bag by BAGGU. It’s been the perfect travel companion for wallet, keys, phone, passports… It’s become a daily staple and favorite.
(I just ordered it in another color. Consider me a fan! Also, fun fact, BAGGU is a female owned and run business!)
On my flight back to NYC on Saturday I got to watch The Green Book. What an incredibly moving and thought provoking movie.
