So, I have a new morning ritual and I need to share… BTW, it has absolutely nothing to do with getting dressed or what to wear:)
I recently subscribed to an email newsletter called theSkimm and I LOVE it! Basically, every weekday morning theSkimm sends me a brief, funny and thorough synopsis (think cliff notes of the NY Times) of the days headline making news. I want and need to know what is going on in the world of politics, international affairs, sports (this one is really hard for me) entertainment, technology etc. But honestly, I do not always have the time (or inclination) to read the paper cover to cover or watch a whole news report. This service is a game changer.
This past week, I’ve been able to talk (with slight intelligence) about the NFL Draft – specifically the Browns and Jonny Manziel, the situation in the Ukraine, the 200 girls taken by Boko Haram and the collapse of the West Arctic Ice Sheet.
Confession alert – before theSkimm I was relying on FaceBook posts to inform me on world events but now with theSkimm it’s easy – they read and I skim.
Here’s an easy link to sign up and try it yourself. http://www.theskimm.com/?r=35830
Reading (or Skimming) theSkimm in the morning should leave time for you to coordinate a killer outfit in the am – but if that is still an issue you can definitely call me for help!
