The HEAT is rising in New York City. Music is stellar. Life is swell. Can you pass the guacamole? What’s running through my head + the things I believe in. List formation, let’s go:
Melodrama // I was skeptical if 11 tracks could surpass Pure Heroine, but Lorde over-delivered. Her second LP is pure brilliance. It’s a tragedy, a celebration of self-discovery, AND the BEST RECORD of THE YEAR. Hear it here.
Barry’s Bootcamp // You’ll crawl out of the class, but feel like a ROCKSTAR.
The Leftovers // Arguably, the best show I’ve ever seen. It’s a cathartic exploration of the meaning of life. With just three seasons, it’s a relaxed summer binge. Also, the cast is BRILLIANT.
Aviator Nation // The WORLD’s comfiest HOODIE. SLASH of course, I’m also just trying to bring more California vibes to NY.
My Sneaker Secret // HOW ON EARTH do you keep WHITE shoes clean in New York? Muhahaha…I know the secret 😜 Want to know how?! Lysol Wipes. Yep, those things you use to clean your kitchen, turn your dirty kicks into true Superstars.
Imagine Me Gone by Adam Haslett // Bring it to the beach. Or take it on the train. It’s the perfect read with a cold brew in hand.
Sunshine // Thanks to one of my fellow co-workers, I discovered this APP. Every morning it will light up your phone and let you know how to dress for the weather. Download it here.
THIS iPhone CASE // Saving my life, one day at a time.
The Handmaid’s Tale // I’m still asking myself “WHAT just HAPPENED?!” at that season finale. I’d describe the show as a crossover between 1984, Westworld, Mr. Robot, and Nip/Tuck. Mid-season the show gets a little too exploratory, but the final two episodes are jarring. Praise be.
Sweetgreen // Blessed be their Harvest Bowls.
