What does one do when they've finished Season 1 of The Newsroom and they have no idea when Season 2 will be available? Re-watch The West Wing of course. I'm not alone, Buzzfeed agrees with this choice, or in the least understands it. Plus, ongoing exposure to Sorkin's unrelenting optimism and wit keeps me sharp. (As I write this I may or may not be tearing up as Charlie accepts the job as President Bartlett's personal aid. This show!)
Pasta has been on repeat in my kitchen the last few days (I'll try that moderation thing again on Monday). The one dish I can't stop eating is this Fresh Tomato and Ricotta bowl from Foodie Crush. It has a unique garlic oil sauce that packs a punch without a lot of effort. Definitely recommend!
Lately, I've been immersed in trying to update my portfolio (along with this site as a whole). On Friday I needed a kick in the pants reminder of why I was pursuing this arduous task. After seeing some recommendations from trusted sources around the web, I decided #GirlBoss might be just what I was needing. It was a quick read and provided the motivation I lacked. Word on the street is that Lean In should be next on my list. Thoughts?
I've had First Aid Kit's Stay Gold on repeat all week. If my affirmation of it's quality isn't enough, Reese Witherspoon is calling My Silver Lining the song of summer. (This piece of information is what I call Instagram wandering at its finest.) Speaking of Reese, have you seen the trailer for her new movie, The Good Lie? I'm intrigued... and excited to see her back on the big screen.
I also came across the new Maroon 5 song on Spotify, and I really like it. I haven't been a real fan of them in a long time, but Maps sounds fresh. Watching The Voice has made me like Adam Levine way more than I ever thought possible. He's almost... charming. Who knew? I think it's the perfect tune for the car dancing that is practically required on summer trips to the beach. (Pair it with One Republic's Love Runs Out, trust me.)
Enough rambling... it's your turn! What's new in your world?
