Lysande is Loving…

This series is a collaboration brought to you by myself and Alex Soler-Lovell, to share what we’re loving. I mean, it’s kind of like the highlights of our Slack conversations but we wanted to bring you into it. Let us know what you’re loving in the comments below!

ONE // Beyonce’s makeup artist spilled all of his secrets. I’ll listen to anyone who says that under eye circles can be sexy…and who does Beyonce’s makeup!

TWO // This cyclist picked up a stray cat on his trip around the world. Spoiler alert: he adopts Nala and they become best friends. The video is PRECIOUS.

THREE // AOC responds to the right’s complaint that the Green New Deal is ‘elitist’ and we love everything about it.

FOUR // Alex introduced us to a curl and natural hair positive brand that speaks to anyone who has ever been asked…“Why don’t you straighten your hair?” Or told...”you’d be attractive with different hair” / “your hair is unprofessional” / “don’t you ever brush your hair?” The list goes on and on. The Hause of Curls slogan is “Pelo Malo, Where?” which translates to “Bad hair, where?” They sell t-shirts, bathing suits, and small accessories emblazoned with their slogan – the perfect way to celebrate your flawless hair or gift to someone who needs encouragement on their natural hair journey. Follow on Instagram @hauseofcurls.

FIVE // This article about the history of the hair accessory and how it’s coming to prominence!

SIX // The “Maqui” Khadi Maxi Wire-Framed Headband is everything for me right now.

SEVEN // This musician makes hilarious videos for “desk jockeys” about taking care of our bodies and the youtube video playlist is linked above. (In the interest of full disclosure, said musician is my brother but outside sources were consulted who said they, too, teared up from laughter. Be sure to watch the full series. David is on IG @davidthegoliathmusic. #owmybodyhurts #unfuckyourback

EIGHT // Alex tried this recipe for fish with lemon and caper sauce and it was so good she wanted to pass it on – “fresh parsley is a must!”

NINE // This fossil discovery in China rocked (haha get it?) our world.

TEN // How has it been TWENTY YEARS since “10 Things I Hate About You” came out?! In this article, hear from actors in my favorite ever rom com as they reflect back on the movie, their careers, and Heath Ledger.

ELEVEN // Spring! This week was lovely. I got out for my first mountain bike ride of the season and the smell of the forest warming up makes me breathe easier. Gustav Mahler said it best: “With the coming of spring, I am calm again.”
