Welcome to Culturally Consumed, a weekly round up of everything I’m reading, watching, and wondering about! This week’s consumption includes a new-to-me show from the creator of Downton Abbey, a daily anti-racism newsletter, and a lot of Elizabeth Gilbert…
With the start of Black History Month, I’ve signed up for the 28 Days of Black History newsletter from Anti-Racism Daily. Each email features a piece of art or literature that exemplifies a moment of Black History delivered right to your inbox.
PSA: Eat Pray Love is now available on Netflix. I watched it on Friday night (and Saturday morning because I’m 1,000 and fell asleep) and it is just as lovely and ridiculous as I remember. Reminds me I need to buy bigger jeans.
A former Bryn Mawr classmate of mine, Tae Keller, won the freaking Newbery Award for her stunning book When You Trap A Tiger! Ordering for my nephew immediately. Anassa kata, Tae!
The confusion around the Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley engagement rumors is hilarious to me.
Am I going to have to start watching Southern Charm now just to figure out who Madison LeCroy is?
I started following Deux Moi on Instagram and they’re making me so nervous for more Armie Hammer news. My personal opinion is that someone has filed a legal case against him since that’s when companies start dropping people (à la Johnny Depp). I hate all of it.
I watched the charming Doctor Thorne on Amazon last night. It’s another adaptation by Julian Fellowes (creator of Downton Abbey) and is very sweet and well done. Alison Brie makes a fantastic cameo. I only wish it was more than four episodes long!
Love Island UK is back for 2021! Thank God!
