a sunday kind of love #7

This weekend has been lovely! I went home for a bit, saw friends, and today went to No/ Gloss Film Festival in Leeds (which I'll post about soon!) What have you been up to?

Watch//  I've been pretty busy lately so there's a few things that have built up on my must-watch list... I'm dying to see the new Black Mirror on Netflix, Werner Herzog's new documentary Lo and Behold: Reveries of The Connected World, and Adam Curtis' new film Hypernormalisation. Have you seen them yet?

Listen//  Radio 4's Soul Music is one of my favourite podcasts. It's a series that looks at music with a powerful emotional impact. This episode focusing on Sam Cooke's A Change is Gonna Come is hard-hitting but beautiful. / To celebrate Woman's Hour turning 70, Lauren Laverne has concocted this wonderful playlist. / You NEED to listen to Emma Gannon's podcast in conversation with Everyday Sexism's Laura Bates, an absolutely incredible woman, about feminism, sexism in schools and in the world, consent,  and the future of sex education.

To the First Lady, With Love: Four thank-you notes to Michelle Obama, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Gloria Steinem, Jon Meacham and Rashida Jones /
Hadley Freeman on Trump /
A haunting extract from Marina Abramovic's new memoir /
Dolly Alderton on why trash TV is a Godsend /
Carrie on the importance of doing absolutely nothing every once in a while /
'The Ched Evans case shows that sex-ed is desperately needed' from The Pool /
Pandora Sykes on Locker Room Bantz, Pussy-Grabbing – And What I’ve Learnt About Bullying /
Plant/ house envy from Haarkon /
Why I commute to London – from Sweden’s west coast /
Isabel Magowan photographs the dark side of American gilded youth

Visit//  Victoria Gate is now open in Leeds! I popped along to the Anthropologie launch on Thursday to have a look at the shop, and see the mysterious Mr. Finch's exhibition! It's definitely worth a look in.
