Fuss Fridays: a fortnightly list of essentials

 

Say hello to Fuss Fridays! Inspired by Tim Ferriss, I'm sharing with you six essentials that I’ve been obsessing over.

Reading:
Man Repeller’s investigation into holding hands… Harling Ross analyzes the art of hand holding and whether it should be labeled “a dreamy nightmare or a nightmarish dream”.

Am I the only one who thinks holding hands in public is actually a sign of a lack of intimacy? If you’re truly close to your partner, you shouldn’t feel the need to have a physical connection whilst walking down the street… merely being in the presence of one another should be more than adequate.

Watching:
Battle of the Sexes. I will admit, I wasn’t especially keen on watching this movie, but decided to give it a go during my boringly long flight from Los Angeles to Melbourne (Australia)… mostly because I have this weird obsession with Emma Stone that no-one really understands. This movie was pretty eye opening for me—did you know that during the 1970’s, female tennis players were being paid an eighth of what men were?

Listening:
Pardon My French with Garance Doré (founder of Atelier Dore): Seamus Mullen: Health as a Choice. Sometimes to find your health you have to almost lose it. That’s what happened to Seamus Mullen, a renowned New York chef who nearly died of an autoimmune disorder after years of ignoring his body’s subtle signals. He speaks about finding the root cause, changing the format that you eat in, and cleaning things up—sounds like my cup of tea.

Using:
Goop by Juice Beauty: Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer—the only cream that hasn’t caused boulders on my skin… a bonus, it includes 73% organic content (a rarity, even for products labeled ‘organic’ in this day and age). 

Idolizing:
Gwyneth Paltrow (@gwynethpaltrow), founder of Goop.

Eating:
Coconut flesh—the perfect smoothie ingredient. Along with açaí (the unsweetened kind), banana, and spinach… straight into the Nutribullet. Does the trick!
