Fridaaaay, Links!

Max Seddon’s photo of a young Russian protestor is like a Renaissance painting.

Related, Pussy Riot, the band imprisoned for giving protest performances in Russia, gives advice for women to defy Putin and Trump: “To persevere, Nadya Tolokonnikova says, it’s important to think in dubious times ‘how I could improve the lives of people around me… it’s only then — when you start to find a solution — that you will feel good again. Even in the darkest times, helping others is power.’”

I love you, robot. Oof.

Finnish Dish Drying Cabinets let you put your dishes away while they’re still wet. Why aren’t these in every San Francisco apartment?

Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive” is the right tempo for administering CPR. As is “I Will Survive.”

Get Out

It’s afternoon on the Avenues. Outside Trouble Coffee, a bearded young man passes the window in moccasin slippers. His navy-blue robe is unbelted over a clean white undershirt and drawstring pants. He guides a suitcase past Golden Gate Indian Food and Pizza, and as he rounds a corner, the wind pulls his robe hem back toward the beach.

3 Fish Studios

I stopped by 3 Fish Studios in San Francisco the other day to see my friends Annie and Eric, and fell for one of Annie’s happy doodles. If you have $25, you can have one too.

Slowing Down

Taping this to the wall. Having a toddler around is a constant reminder of how irritating it is to rush.

Atopalm Face Cream

atopalmfacecream

Hello! This isn’t an ad, it’s a thing I use. My friend Tess and I like to give everyday things we love as presents, so I thought I’d start telling you about some of mine. Atopalm is top of the pops.

I have dry, sensitive skin, and I’ve been using Atopalm Face Cream on my face and neck for about five years. It’s perfect in the following ways:

• Not crazy expensive, it’s about $25 for a 3.4 oz jar, and I don’t need to use much at a go.
• It goes on light, very moisturizing but not greasy, and it soaks in completely.
• The fragrance is very faint, and doesn’t compete with my perfume. If I had to nail it down, I’d say faintly citrusy?
• It layers well, so I can use it with sunscreen and foundation and my makeup doesn’t slide around.

I use it in the morning under my makeup and before bed in combination with a few other products for fine lines, and so forth. Anyway, good stuff.

Do you have any skin creams you swear by? I’m curious because I feel like it takes forever to find the right one for your particular skin.
