banana republic sweater

How pretty is this sweater with elbow-length sleeves? It feels so romantic and would be perfect for the office or dinner dates. Here are three versions: cotton, ribbed and crewneck.

While scrolling through Instagram, I came across food writer Natasha Pickowicz’s “ham and chips salad,” and my jaw dropped. Wouldn’t it be cool to serve before dinner?

Have you seen the trailer for The Rescue? The critically acclaimed documentary follows the daring rescue of 12 Thai boys and their coach, after they got trapped inside a flooded cave. As a tried-and-true claustrophobe, I’m not sure I’ll be brave enough to sit through it, but I’m looking forward to trying.


Making new friends as an adult can feel tricky, so Tina Roth Eisenberg decided just to be straightforward. After meeting a cool-seeming woman at work, Tina emailed her: “I absolutely loved meeting you. Would you like to go on a friend date?” And few hours later, she got an enthusiastic reply: “YES!” Now they’ve been friends for years. Would you ask someone out on a friend date? I love the idea.

P.S. More fun things, and what’s your favorite book?
