I usually post home updates on Thursday but I took last week off after completing the one-room challenge. So I’ll have a new post next Thursday. Please enjoy the monthly link-up.
Chip and Joanna Gaines on Walking Away From “Fixer Upper”: I really enjoyed this article from the Hollywood Reporter. I have a ton of admiration for the Gaines and think they have a lot more to offer than just the farmhouse aesthetic. I’m also glad that they discussed diversity and inclusion in the interview. Unfortunately, the discussion was brief, but I hope they talk more about it in the future.
Britney’s Declaration on Her Conservatorship: I was a huge fan of Britney Spears when I was a kid. Of course, I hadn’t given her much thought until last summer when my husband told me about the “Free Britney” movement (a fan movement that declared Britney should no longer be in her conservatorship). I read a couple of articles and watched Britney’s Instagram videos. I was casually following it when I heard that she spoke out about her conservatorship. My husband and I listened to her statement. Parts of it disturbed me, and I think Britney made several good points. I wish someone could have helped her polish the statement, but I am glad she said what she felt. I think it’s worth a listen.
Never Have I Ever, Season 2 Trailer: I am so pumped for the second season of Never Have I Ever, a Netflix comedy that follows Devi, an Indian-American, as she tries to navigate friendships, family life, and dating. I have watched the first season three times (whenever I don’t know what to watch, I just turn it on!). Mindy Kaling writes it, and I think it’s perfect. The release date is July 15th.
