Another weekend drawing to a close, darlings, another batch of links to take to you to the bitter end. It’s a short bunch this week but as always worth a read! Share your favorite internet finds in the comments and let me know what you’re getting up to this week.
Full disclosure, this is a commercial for feminine hygiene products. It is also wicked smart advertising and the comment thread is giving me life. #fulleowyn
This clapback is everything.
History + libraries = SDS clickbait.
My entire Facebook feed of late has been dedicated to the ass-kicking lady athletes in Rio this Olympics, so here’s a timely piece of worthy reading.
This piece on Elle.com on the evolution of street style and how their photographers capture it now is smart and delightful.
I’m incredibly irked that Larry Wilmore’s show has been cancelled, but Jon Stewart’s tribute to his voice says better than any other commentary why it’s important.

The U.S. women have been kicking butt in saber fencing — took the team bronze in Rio. The only reason they are able to do so is because (ahem) in the mid-1990s, a bunch of badass women saber fencers at national levels (I was one of them) said “Hey, we want to keep going. We want to fence at the Olympics, too.” And were told, by the aged French guys running the sport, “nooooo. It’s too aggressive.”
Et voila. It takes some ceiling smashing along the way. 🙂
Waves saber triumphantly
I enjoyed the look at the lifestyle of a street fashion photographer. Sounds incredibly exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.
How’s the new job?
Very interesting! I’ve essentially gone from a position where I was honestly doing multiple jobs at once with a more than full time load, to a much more sustainable one. I’m very glad for the shift, but it’s been interesting to try and retrain my brain to a more healthy and sustainable work flow. There’s a lot to do and organise (my favourite!) but I’m enjoying diving into it.
