2. Yesterday's Observer Magazine featured a host of familiar faces, discussing their work, style, and life philosophies in some pretty fabulous clothes. Click here to meet a new generation of female bosses who are running things in London Town.

3. Kylie Jenner's Forbes cover (claiming that she's well on her way to becoming the youngest self-made billionaire) started - or reignited - a much-needed conversation about what it means to be "self-made" in modern times. Of the many, many hot takes and op-eds - Of Course Kylie Jenner Didn't Build That by Ann Friedman is one of our favs.

4. Speaking of Kardashians - for Money Diaries you never knew you needed, check out Wealthsimple for candid $$ conversations with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry (AKA Paperboy), and RuPaul's Shangela. Plus, plenty of financial advice/how-to guides geared specifically towards *millennials*.

5. Is there such a thing as maternity leave for freelancers? Absolutely. And here's how to make it work.

6. We're always looking to upgrade our brains and bookshelves with work from new women writers. Thanks to British Voguehere are six women whose literary debuts you won't want to miss - including Chidera Eggerue AKA The Slumflower's What A Time To Be Alone and Slay In Your Lane: The Black Girl Bible by Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené.

HAPPENINGS

NEW YORK

Swing by the MoMA for the Constantin Brancusi Sculpture show, a collection of sculptures, drawings, photographs and other pieces from the iconic sculptor’s life - displayed together for the first time ever.

LONDON

Explore the ways in which digital technologies are changing the way we live and inhabit spaces with a series of projects inside the Royal Academy’s new Architecture Studio, running until March 2019.

CHICAGO

You've only got a few weeks to catch brilliant New York painter Jeff Sonhouse's solo show, Entrapment, at Moniquemeloche's new West Town gallery. A beautiful pairing of classic painting technique and a haphazard approach to color and material, Sonhouse's "re-representation" of black male identity in Western culture is truly sublime.
