SONG/ALBUM ON REPEAT:
A "project on identity, empowerment, independence, grief and healing..." Solange's A Seat At The Table has been on Sonos repeat since the album dropped last week.

FRIDAY NIGHT COCKTAIL CONVO STARTER
The subject line read read: work wife. A topic close to heart considering the all-female-office Sakara inhabits (oh, wait sorry Mike...). Goop's article, Female Friendship & The Office by Dr. Sadeghi, is an account of "how female friendships can help or hinder personal growth in the office and beyond". Because now more than ever, we spend the majority of our time in the workplace and the relationships we build there can either have a positive or negative effect (both mentally and physically) on us, and us meaning women, generally speaking...
