Monday Rundown August 6th

It's the first Monday of August. While summer may be quickly approaching its end for some - for us here at Sheepberry it's a month of beginnings. We are happy to begin rolling out content for our blog 'Over Our Heads.' Its origin is very special to our family, and there will be more on that later. For now take a look at one of our standing posts: Monday Rundown. Each Monday a list of five or so things to help get you through the week. Enjoy!

  • I’m a big fan of Love, Beauty, and Planet’s murumuru butter & rose body-wash. I tend to stay away from floral scents because they trigger headaches and migraines but this is very light and more like an afterthought that lingers for a long while. (Though I have questioned why I started using this is peak bee season…)

  • Ever since I was little, I weddings enchanted me. Currently one of my obsessions is a French designer (and I can almost never name a designer!) Laure de Sagazan. And bonus points - there’s now a USA account for her designs in addition to the France and Spain accounts on instagram. Though all three are definitely worth a follow whether you can read the captions or not!

  • The movie Obvious Child is now on Netflix, and available for your streaming pleasure if you hadn’t gotten a chance to view it prior. It stars Jenny Slate and was written & directed by (caution Obvious Child spoilers ahead if you click on the following hyperlink) Gillian Robespierre. It is a story which features the topic of abortion - a very relevant and political topic.

  • One of my favorite bloggers Grace Boney of Design*Sponge recently did an episode of the Good Life Project podcast. It is a delightful conversation on design, style, and life.

  • While we’re on the topic of podcasts make sure to subscribe to How to Fail with Elizabeth Day. After reading this piece on Day and the subject of ‘failure’ that really resonated with me, I decided to give the podcast a listen. There are a few episodes now, but they are really good conversations on how people have failed and where that led them. The podcast can also be found in iTunes.

Since it’s the beginning let’s push it to six.
