ONE || 50 Years after their Mug Shots, Portraits of Mississippi’s Freedom Riders

It’s hard to believe that it was only 50 years ago that segregation was a normal part of people’s lives. Journalist and photographer, Eric Etheridge provides side-by-side photographs of the Freedom Riders’ mugshots and a current portrait. It’s moving and inspiring, and I think it’s something you need in your day.

TWO || 100% Pure

I have not tried any of these products yet, but it’s just a matter of time. 100% Pure creates make-up, skincare, and hair/body body products completely free of synthetic substances. Certain chemicals penetrate our skin and others are absorbed into our bloodstream, so it stands to reason we should choose products wisely.

Read more about how much our skin actually absorbs.

THREE || First Reformed

This is just a trailer for an upcoming movie starring Ethan Hawke, and oh my gosh, guys! I’m blown away. It hit theaters today, but it’s a limited release, so most of us won’t be able to see it for a few more weeks. I can barely wait.

Amanda Seyfried is in it, too.

FOUR || A Long Weekend in Napa Valley Itinerary

If you’re looking for a not-exactly-wine-centered-but-still-some-wine itinerary for Napa Valley covering Napa, Yountville and St. Helena, and Calistoga, then this is for you!

FIVE ||Β School Shootings in 2018

You need reminding. You need triggering. School shootings in America have killed hundreds of people in recent years, and 2018 has seen dozens of deaths. In fact, “More young Americans have died in school shootings in 2018Β than in all the nation’s combat operations all over the world.” (source)

This is not okay.
