Weekly Reads – April 6th

Last week was went by so quickly; and the Easter break even more so. I blinked on Thursday evening after sending my last work e-mail and then it was Monday night. We had a good time over the long weekend and we also celebrated the Mr’s birthday. We even attempted our first proper birthday cake; the cake turned out really pretty, but the taste not so much. The buttercream didn’t turn out fluffy enough and the cake ended up feeling too buttery. Oh well, at least we had lots of fun making the cake and decorating it.

How was your long weekend?


Spring & fresh flowers time

Profiling. Loved this profile of Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner. She’s 29 and became Condé Nast’s youngest ever editor-in-chief in 2018, after she helped transform the magazine “from lip gloss and bubblegum into a hub of insightful political coverage on everything from climate change to Black Lives Matter”.

Beauty filters. A fascinating read on how beauty filters are changing the way young girls see themselves; as it turns out, the most widespread use of augmented reality isn’t in gaming or somewhere else; it’s the face filters on social media. The article explores how this is resulting in a “mass experiment on girls and young women” and it’s definitely worth a read.
