#BreakThings: A Diet of Wine and Dry Shampoo
Authenticity, oft talked about, rarely seen.
One of my goals for Thirtyish is to keep it real. #nofilter Today’s newsletter is filled with content that focuses on the challenges we’re facing — whether it’s letting go of old routines or building a new future. So let’s get started.
Root touchups. High Heels. Manicures. Blowouts. The things we used to think mattered. This article from The Riveter discusses what the world looks like now, and what it’s doing to how we present ourselves to the world.
I usually read one non-fiction book and then one fiction book. But in 2020, I’ve had enough of reality to last me a lifetime. I need lightness, laughs, and a plot-line that makes the pages turn.
One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London tells the story of a successful plus-size fashion blogger who finds herself on a TV dating show. Even if you’ve never seen a single episode of The Bachelor (raises hand sheepishly), you’ll still enjoy this fun read.
The easiest dinners in the world are bowls. Rice/pasta/salad with a protein, a sauce and assorted accoutrements. This Spicy Peanut Tofu Bowls from Spices in my DNA are a great example of an easy, satisfying bowl recipe.
The quick-pickled vegetables are a wonderful addition. Also, if you don’t like tofu, I like to serve this with half sweet potato cubes and half grilled chicken. I also add some salad greens because I’m trying to eat more veggies. There are no rules with a bowl meal, that’s what makes them great.
It’s sweater weather in the Pacific Northwest. This popcorn textured sweater from French Connection has a stylish, modern shape in a wonderfully unique knit. The mock neck is the hot neckline for this fall, and this relaxed sweater is one of the nicest options that I have seen.
Last week, I revamped my resume. Working on that project, I realized that I still have 25-30 years left in my career. Just the thought of knowing what to do with all that time is exhausting. Luckily, the Harvard Business Review has four tips for helping women navigate the next phase of their careers. Because whether you’re thinking about the next year or the next decade, we could all use a little guidance right now.
It’s funny because it’s true.
