Bridget Riley on a Monday.

Bridget Riley on a Monday.


1. Face the fear - and have faith in your ability to overcome it.That's the energy we're coming with for the first month of Q4, which is all about working well (definitely not the same thing as working more, btw!) Enroll in the CLASS OF 2018 for worksheets + weekly homework assignments that will act as your personal cheerleader/business coach all OctoberFind out how to get in on it here.

2. Libra season is upon us, and we could probably all do with taking a moment to channel its rebalancing energy. Forgotten how?! Here's a reminder of how to keep calm in almost any context, via the brilliant writer (and Libran, obvi), Sarah Nicole Prickett.

3. What an overall beautiful production this NYT profile is, featuring "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins, styled by fashion's own Shiona Turini, set designed by brilliant artist Mickalene Thomas, and written by Angel Flournoy, author of "The Turner House". A pure pleasure read.

4. Vanity Fair's Future Innovators List is here and they predict that there are big things to come for: "Diversity, firms funding women, critics of Big Tech, disinformation experts, and leaders in categories like agriculture, tech, and logistics." There are plenty of forward-thinking women on this list you'll want to read up on.

5. No one person has all the answers (alas), so it might be worth diversifying your support network. Here's a strong case for why you need these 5 types of mentors in your life.



See the long-unrecognized talents of Hilma af Klint - whose colorplay and radical abstraction were remarkably ahead of her time - at the Guggenheim starting on October 12 at Hilma af Klint: Paintings for the Future.


Until October 25, London is brimming with amazing pop-ups and events for City Life Festival. They've got everything on the calendar from an evening of "Forgotten Women" storytelling with UK Broadly editor Zing Tsjeng to a West Indian Sunday roast. The line-up is all over the place, but in a great way.

The mission of the inaugural Female Filmmakers Festival’s mission is to create space for and celebrate women filmmakers and inspire other film fanatics along the way. From October 10 - 12 at Downtown Independent.


 A sassy (yes, I said sassy!)  antidote to rainy days.
