1. Thank you, New York, for an absolutely incredible launch for The Working Woman's Handbook. It was a magical experience that I won't ever forget. Check out some photos from the event - which took place in the beautiful High Line Room at The Standard High Line - over here. [Photo credit: My fab fellow Brit, India Sleem].

2. More thanks due to my amazing panel of speakers at the launch, all of whom are also featured on the pages of the book.Watch me in (emotional!) conversation with Sarah Law (KARA), Sandy Liang, Krissy Jones and Chloe Kernaghan (Sky Ting Yoga), Sandeep Salter (Picture Room) and Kai Avent-deLeon (Sincerely, Tommy) via Facebook Live.

3. If you're interested in how/why I wrote The Working Woman's Handbook in the first place - I broke it down in a piece for i-D. Read it here.

4. In other news, here's an interesting article series on building bulletproof brands from retail analysis site, Loose Threads. The section on networks - which uses Supreme, Glossier, and Peloton as case studies - is particularly fascinating.

5. My appetite for reading about other people's work and life routines is apparently insatiable. I'm currently devouring everything on Extraordinary Routines, especially the pieces on Ann Friedman(she's in the book!) and NY-based writer, Ashley Ford. Fellow lifestyle voyeurs (is that all of us, now?!) - enjoy!

HAPPENINGS

NEW YORK

Black Skin, White Masks at BAM is a programme of films inspired by the work of the influential anti-colonialist writer and revolutionaryFrantz Fanon.

LONDON

As a big fan of Brutalist architecture, British Post War Public Art - a photography exhibition documenting sculptures that were placed in public areas in the post-war era - looks right up my street.

WORLDWIDE

If you're in hibernation mode and prefer to intake your autumn culture from the comfort of your couch, might I suggest you order a copy of newly-published book The Pedro Almodóvar Archives from Taschen and flick through it while you back your way through his incredible back catalogue.

  KARA's leather panel tote  is the most perfect travel bag I ever did see.

 We're all about to spend a lot of time staring at our living room walls. Dress them according with this Maia Ruth Lee print from  Picture Room.

 Can't decide what I want more: Sandy Liang's  Chambers fleece , or a hug from her grandma who's modelling it.

(And just to round out this 'Women of The New York Book Launch' special accordingly - an infra-red sauna session at Sky Ting Yoga is the very definition of self-care.)
