we had a day!!!!!
in case you missed it
hello everyone!! it’s steffi!!!
popping in really quick for a mid-week update, to share some big things that happened today! as you may have seen, it’s steffi was on NPR today. the one and only Brittany Luse had me on It’s Been A Minute to talk about the white girl soft power essay i wrote last month, and we chatted all things beauty, fashion, and exertion of hegemony. i’ve listened to so much NPR in the car with my dad growing up, and was a fan of It’s Been A Minute in college, so this is particularly meaningful to me.
the other thing that happened was my state of the union on the thirst trap, which was published today at work. we take a look at the taxonomy of what makes a great thirst trap now, and how intimacy has usurped sex as the most-coveted currency in social media hotness now. i had so much fun writing this and am so psyched about these quotes. may this excerpt entice you to give it a read:
We know Gen Z isn’t sex negative, but rather focused on intimacy, so it makes sense that their thirst traps are, too. The focus is truly about the vibes now, the idea of a possible shared experience or relationship (even if just for one night), rather than just you being hot.
the last big thing that happened today was that i went into the office and my fave kelsey weekman bought me a latte! blessings upon blessings! also, here is a good recipe for vegan beef broccoli if you are so inclined to try it.
thank you so much for reading!!!! it feels weird to say that (like who the fuck am i ksdgjhjfkhgf) but i think it needed to be said. i appreciate you all for sending me all the things you felt when reading my work. it makes me unbelievably happy.
things i clicked today that i enjoyed (Nice Things to Consider lite):
