1. London, it feels good to be home. We're back in town to celebrate the UK launch of The Working Woman's Handbook with an extra-special Work Party / Book Brunch / celebration this Thursday. Get your ticket (which includes a signed copy of the book) over here. Big thanks to Breather for providing such a beautiful venue.

2. In related news - I recorded a special edition of the Make It Work podcast, dedicated solely to sharing my experience of publishing a book (the good, the bad, and the hard-learnt lessons along the way) and answering any questions you might have about doing the same.Give it a listen.

3. IRL best friends Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner (together, they made this show you've might've seen called Girls...) discuss what it's like to run a business (Lenny Letter) with a friend.

4. Longtime German chancellor Angela Merkel is up for re-election on Sunday - this article from The New York Times looks at the strides she's made as a prominent female leader - and how far her country has yet to go.

5. Navigating these turbulent political times can feel overwhelming, frustrating, and, often, exhausting. In an interview with Ann Friedman, Alicia Garza (founder of Black Lives Matter) advises on how to do the work that's yet to be done.

 I'm super-excited to see my friend Lou's new collection for her line Jour/ne  in Paris next week - everything she and her co-designers Jerry and Lea make is gold.
