Dispatches from the fox hole

Ali K. is a rockstar content creator & manager at one of the top marketing agencies in D.C. & keeps it real with her insane self awareness & vocabulary the size of Montana. She makes us laugh every time she speaks and we want to be her. Check out what she's reading this month (and so are we). 

Remember Ali from episode 14's coaching session? That super duper self aware, overthinking, mega brain of a beauty? She's joining us monthly to tell us what she's reading right now from around the interwebs and on her shelves. 

Welcome to Dispatches from the Foxhole, a weekly roundup of resident fox Ali's favorite articles + things. 

How Much Time Do We Spend In Meetings?

Read this, even though the answer is very clearly "way too effing much." Assigning a dollar amount to the time you waste throughout the day will definitely make you rethink what you say "yes" to. 

Kristin Ess Rose Gold Tint

One of our favorite hairfluencers Kristin Ess released a temporary pastel rose-gold tint for hair. It's best for blondes — as a very brunette lady I'm riddled with envy, and still tempted to try it. It's a fun way to seasonally switch up hair without doing something truly drastic.

Madame Clairvoyant's Horoscopes

More poem than traditional horoscope, reading Madame Clairvoyant is my favorite way to start the week — she's like a lovechild of Oprah and a kindly woodswitch. Her horoscopes are vibey, flowing and inspirational. 

A Review of Those Weird New Diet Coke Flavors

One of my favorite internet writers Caity Weaver tried all those zany new Diet Coke flavors. She's hilarious, off-the-wall, and drank every variation so that you don't have to. 

Jersey Shore: An Oral History

Whether you ironically or unironically loved Jersey Shore, this oral history provides some choice background detail that makes the cast members' abysmal behavior make a little more sense. 

The Book For When You're Going Through Shit

I read Cheryl Strayed's Tiny Beautiful Things whenever life is kicking me in the ass. You probably know her as the author of Wild, but this book is even better — a compilation of advice columns she wrote online, it's like a shot of adrenaline right to your soul.
