We are almost there people! Two. More. Days.

If you are feeling sluggish, tired, bored and need some #goodreads, click the links below. My gift to you on this Wednesday.

  1. This Puerto Rican Sisterhood is rebuilding Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria via nontraditional, affordable housing. Follow them on Instagram @hivecubemodular.

  2. My friend Swati Khurana was interviewed by Teen Vogue to discuss Mabon, a holiday to celebrate the Autumnal Equinox (September 22). Swati states, “As I started observing the Equinox, I used elements that I still find so beautiful, but recast them in a ritual that centered self-actualization and personal freedom. Observing the Equinox became a way for me to reclaim the season [that] includes my birthday and my two favorite holidays — Diwali and Halloween — from a feminist perspective.” Follow her on Instagram @tarotbooksradio.
