Hey y’all! How are we this far into June already!? I feel like time is flying by.
I’ve been saving things I’ve come across that were interesting, so I thought I’d do another Link Love post.
First, I wanted to share that I created an Instagram account for the blog. You can find me on IG @moveoutoftheblack. I already have a personal account, a vegan food account (@herbivorean), and a vintage clothing account (@sofakingawesomevintage), so what’s one more? 😉
If you’re not following, you’re missing out on exchanges like this:
HA! What a good dude.
Okay, end PSA. On to the links!
You know that thing where you mention wanting to go on vacation to a friend, and suddenly your social media feed is filled with ads on deals to Aruba? (I kid you not, I used Head & Shoulders shampoo for the first time in a while, and the next day, an ad popped up on my IG feed.) It turns out we’re not just being paranoid…. our phones really are listening.
Someone put together a Google Map of unsolved murders, organized by location and era.
I enjoyed these tips on managing a negative mood and generating a positive one. Hint: don’t give in to your first reaction when things don’t go your way.
A reflection on Kate Spade’s death and a good reminder that our actions don’t always match how we’re feeling inside.
What if we all just did a little less? An Elle writer takes a cue from the book The Joy of Doing Just Enough and stops trying for a week.
Jennifer Carole is the daughter of Lyman Smith, one of the victims of the Golden State Killer. She’s been blogging all about her experience now that D’Angelo has been arrested as a suspect, including the trial appearances. She’s a great writer, and it’s been facsinating to learn about the case from her perspective. It’s still a struggle, but I’m glad she’s able to start to find some closure.
Murder by Death is one of my favorite bands, but I always have trouble explaining them to people. Luckily, VICE put together this handy Guide to Getting into Murder by Death.
Speaking of Murder by Death, they’re in the midst of another epic Kickstarter campaign. They always have great rewards! On the last campaign, we got to see them play in a lagering cavern in Kentucky. This year, they’ll be playing in an underground cave in Tennessee! If you’ve got $10K lying around, you can even join them at space camp. For the rest of us, there’s digital downloads, vinyl, and rad shirt and poster designs. The concept of the new album–a self-proclaimed space western–sounds awesome, and I can’t wait to hear it. There are 10 days left on the campaign, so check it out and help us get the stretch goals!
The new Chromeo album is perfect summer listening!
Let’s get together and make this raspberry frosé, STAT! The perfect drink for summer (and I don’t even like wine).
These Toasted Coconut Caramel Frappes look amazing!
