Fugs & Pieces, May 10th 2024

Happy Mother’s Day to those of you moms and mom-figures out there! I hope Sunday goes just as you like.

BUSY WEEK. (Which I also overscheduled for myself for God knows what reason. ANYWAY.) In case you missed any of our Met Gala coverage here at GFY, you can see it all here! We had a really really fun live thread at Drinks With Broads. If you want a quick catch-up on what happened on the red carpet, you can read that here! And, yesterday, Heather covered the sexiest bits of Challengers and I watched the new Julia Fox show for SCIENCE.

We also had some fun chats! We exchanged summer recipes, and talked about what we would have worn to this Met Gala!

Big thanks to folks who shared interesting pieces with us this week — Met Gala week, I am always swamped and sit down to write this post on Thursday and think, “oh no, I didn’t save anything for F&P this week!” You came through! (And I think I deleted one of them accidentally so if you sent something great and I didn’t include it, post it it in the comments!)
