C+C Link Love Vol. 2

Since we've got approximately one zillion tabs open at any given moment, we thought we'd share a few of the links that are keeping the Create + Cultivate staff in-the-know.

From Rihanna to 10,000 plastic balls, these are the most worthwhile distractions we've been into this week. 


Jazzi, Editorial Director

READ Did you know Rihanna cast Sanam aka @trustmedaddy, her badass henchwoman from the BBHMM video, on Instagram!? Read what happens when @badgalriri slides into your DMs.  

WAIT Author Zadie Smith is teaming up with director Claire Denis for a “space adventure” Sci-Fi film and I can. not. wait. 

SIGN UP Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner are launching a newsletter about feminism, politics, friendship, and everything in between. And hell yeah, we signed up


Hope, Marketing + Events Coordinator 

LAUGH Watch Daniel Radcliffe fill in as the receptionist at Nylon magazine for an hour... I'm still laughing.

DRINK Any of the recipes over on Smoke & Honey. Rachel Mae Furman is our go-to cocktail guru (and a C+C columnist)! It is 5 o'clock right?

RELAX Install the Calm app and get yourself some zen in 2 minutes or 20! It's a lifesaver!


Linnea, Awesome Intern #1

FOLLOW @lucylaucht on Instagram. I cannot get enough of her feed! It's full of the most beautiful colors and places! Nothing less than you'd expect from the Senior Manager of Social Media at J. Crew.

WATCH Catastrophe, my new favorite TV show. The first season is free and already available for Amazon Prime members. Rob Delaney makes a seamless shift from his absurd Twitter antics to a show that will, no doubt, leave you wanting more.

ADORE Apatow and Dunham. Enough said.


Taryn, Awesome Intern #2

FOLLOW @corinanika. This graphic design wonder has the cutest blog where you can find charming desktop wallpapers that will surely liven up your laptop.

CHECK OUT Co-founders of Snarkitecture, Daniel Arsham and Alex Mustonan, transformed Washington D.C's National Building Museum into a beach with 10,000 plastic balls. So stinkin' cool. Super salty I'm 2,600 miles away.

LISTEN The Bird and the Bee's new album, Recreational Love. Super hipster. Super chill. Not to mention the album cover is totally adorbs.


Honorable Mention

Madewell is having a major sale—40% off sale prices. We indulged.
