Hello lovely people! Welcome to my first newsletter.
In case you missed it, I recently went public on social media about my real name, Sneha Lees. Those of you who have read my book will know that Ruhi Lee was a pseudonym. I no longer have to use it due to a change in my personal circumstances. So, hi again! I'm Sneha.
I'd love for you to join me at this live reading and Q&A tonight if you're free. No bookings required. Just show up in your comfiest PJ's and a warm drink.
To join, click here or head to my Instagram profile at 8:30pm tonight.
This article on how to move from performative allyship to effective allyship. This TED talk by Ethan Hawke, on giving yourself permission to be creative, especially at a time when some of us can we feel like our creativity doesn't matter in the face of all that is happening around the world. This petition from the ASRC asking Scott Morrison to ramp up relief efforts toward Afghan refugees.
This sweet and sour eggplant recipe by Hetty McKinnon. This hilarious scene from Four Christmases. Vince Vaughn really gets how I feel when someone near me throws up. This song by Lucky Ali‒ perfect listening for the beginning of Spring. And though I haven't seen Tenet yet (have you and would you recommend it?), I am really digging this song by Travis Scott from it's soundtrack. I've also been listening to heaps of ABBA with my little one.
And lastly, Ted Lasso is the show that I believe you must watch now for some feel-good vibes but also some lovely ideas around healthy masculinity and what that means for the people in the lives of these men. I would love to hear from you on what you're reading, listening to, eating or watching at the moment. Just hit reply and send through your recommendations.
