Today is TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells, which means that the months of graft and hard work behind-the-scenes have finally come to fruition to create our 5th and most attended event yet. This is my second time playing a role on a TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells committee, and my third live-tweeting the day (follow us at @TEDxRTW but pls don’t point out any spelling or grammatical errors because today is stressful enough already tyvm).
This is also the second TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells event that I’ve helped sell out. Not to brag, but I’m pretty damn good at promoting events (and you can hire me to do that).
All that to say that I’ve been a little short on internet reading this week, so this round-up isn’t as expansive as it usually is. I’m sure you don’t care. And that’s fine. But here are some things that caught my eye:
I’m IN LOVE with these concrete basins/sinks made in the UK. But omgggggg whyyyyyy do companies like this never put prices on their websites?!?! I mean, I kinda get it, but a ballpark figure would be really nice.
I really want a Rose Apothecary sweatshirt but omg those international shipping fees? Ew, David.
As you can see from the photo above, I’m still on the celery juice train. Mostly because I’m insufferable, but also because I’m throwing all the spaghetti at the proverbial wall (is that a phrase?) and trying to see what sticks with getting rid of the eczema that’s decided to camp out on my eyelids and around my mouth. Ahhh stress! It’s a bitch. The Dream Cream from Lush also seems to be pulling its weight in the battle over my face’s wellbeing. And it smells wonderful too!
I’m so glad Dolly Alderton’s Love Stories podcast is back. Her interview with Stanley Tucci about love, food, and being an American in England is so wonderfully charming. I should probably buy his cookbooks, right?
Okay! That’s it! I’m gonna kick some serious ass at TEDxRoyalTunbridgeWells and then I’m going to take it really easy because this event is wonderful and emotional and completely draining all in equal parts and I’m gonna need some time to recover after. See you next week!
