Loved doing the research on this particular piece, which involved pouring over these books, a bunch of scattered articles and interviewing motherbleeping Tracey Ullman!!! Love how many people have worked to keep Andrea's history alive against all odds.
This week in @lennyletter I wrote about Andrea Dunbar (1961-1990). She was a precocious and prolific playwright who, despite debilitating personal odds, wrote hilarious and clear-eyed plays about her life in poverty in the north of England. On our site now 📝

My sweet @aliciavanc really understands me on all levels, even when we don't agree. Whoever Hillery was never dreamed of the new life the bumper stickers from their (failed?) mayoral campaign would get #imwithhillery 📌
This Lenny x Fab collaboration (curated by our deputy editor/style guru @geometricsleep) is a summer dream. Beautiful totes & mugs adorned with Lenny images by female artists, perfect for hauling ass to a BBQ or disrupting your work environment. Link in bio 💄👅💄
In this week's @lennyletter, everyone's icon Miss Alicia Keys explains her new no-makeup approach to her life and work. The best. Link in bio!

Memorial Day hang with my girl gang
Hello and happy #specialthingsundays! Today's female-artisan item is @matersoap. These beautiful all-natural soaps are handmade/co-created by my friend Addison Walz, an artist I met on the first day of kindergarten whose unique and covetable taste has been evident since 1991 when I tried to steal her color-changing mermaid doll. These seem like very sophisticated gifts/the kind of thing an adult woman would have on top her of toilet 💧Feel free to tag me and share the accounts of female artists/creators for upcoming #specialthingsundays!
@isabelhalleyceramics knows my spirit's true color and has made me some magical treasures 👅💅🏼🌷 #talentedfriends

This is a misleading headline 😜
Love this new @lennyletter feature: Morning Routine. Our inaugural comes from my favorite self-made lipstick guru @mdmflow 💄illustration by Kelly Abelin.
I love this painting, and not just because it's of me. Thank you @kendallkyra for making me feel like the kind of woman who tortures sailors with a tempestuous nature and an icy beauty 👀
Thursday is for lovers!!!
Thank you to @nicolettemason for calling my attention to these ridiculous eBay markups of my book. This was a limited edition for charity and I know I'm naive to expect pure human goodness to rule the internet but come the eff on. Maybe these sellers will have a change of heart and send their proceeds to girls in need of writing mentors but I do not endorse this crazy inflation and I'm going to figure out how to get some more of these into the world in a fun and affordable way so that the money goes straight to @girlswritenow ! In the meantime, save your cash for Beyoncé tickets 🎤 Sleep tight, sweet ones.
Y'all keep making me so happy with your pics of you and #isitevil (and, cool news, you're supporting @girlswritenow!) Thank you to @cawillia of @familiarstudio for finding the perfect pink and designing the book of my dreams 👅
When you get home from set, remove your French braids and decide to commit to this look for life
