BRITT COHEN | NEW YORK

N O . 2 1 | i read something extremely uncomfortable last night; apparently i dreamt about the situation as well, & it woke me up from my sleep. (before going to bed, i even read what was written to my mom & sister, who both found the message to be disturbing.) i don’t know if i’m going to talk about it in depth, but a part of me feels like i should at some point. i’m just so disgusted & disappointed in an account i loved following, but feel i no longer can. everyone, please know that i value you all for your unique qualities, your quirks, & the need to want to be represented in publications where others with your skin color aren’t being seen. unlike many, i don’t consider the color of your skin to be a political issue, but rather, something that deserves basic human respect. i make it a point (even in my gift boxes) to make sure anyone feels comfortable to purchase something from me. not just some, all. i can’t imagine running a business where one believes the representation of others is a political issue. ugh, i haven’t even scratched the surface on this. sending everyone lots of love this sunday morning. & know that i hear you & i see you. 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 1 5 | good morning, friends! i want to share a few thoughts with you on this cold autumn morning: sometimes things in life don’t work out the way you wanted them to. sometimes your vision has to be shifted to achieve a more realistic outcome. sometimes you surprise yourself with how much you can actually accomplish. & sometimes taking a break is needed for your overall health. so today, i’m going to relax. maybe nap a little. play with my toddler. cook some comfort food. anything that doesn’t involve budgeting or staring at a screen for hours on end. this is the downside to being a #smallbusinessowner & designer who has to meet her own deadlines. all of the hustling can wait if my well-being is suffering. three cheers for a calming, slow-paced day! 📷: @thebrittedit

N O . 1 4 | #ad @redearth_beauty sent me the most gorgeous goodies. their packaging alone is a minimalist’s dream, but the products themselves are excellent. didn’t know i needed so many hydrating treatments involved in my weekly skincare routine until . . . well, now! due to the colder weather, my skin has become dryer than normal. a combination of all three of these beauties has already improved the look & feel of my skin. i’m a big believer in “once you know something, you can’t un-know it.” this is one of those times. 📷: @thebrittedit
