Hello Woman on Fire!

We want to thank you for the beautiful display of love and support for Jane and her family and friends. The overwhelming response from our community is a reminder that the human spirit is stronger than we can imagine. We will continue to honor Jane’s life everyday and will deeply miss her presence, love and contributions within Women on Fire. We hope that the links this week find you well, and attempt to bring a little more light into the end of your week.

Best Cuddle Buddy- Debbie was recently all wrapped up in her favorite alpaca throw and it inspired us to hunt for the perfect blanket. We think Brit.Co compiled a pretty excellent list of choices here.

Best New Use of Science-  Have you ever considered genetic testing? The founder of 23 and Me was featured in a recent article by Wired Magazine and it got the whole Women on Fire team thinking that maybe we should opt in. For only 99$ you can receive as much or as little information about your genetic and hereditary history as you want.



Best Biz Podcast-
The Women on Fire team LOVES podcasts! We listen to them while driving, while making dinner, and usually have them on in the background while we are working. John Lee Dumas from Entrepreneur on Fire (great name or what?) is by far our favorite business podcast out there. Debbie recently did an interview with him and the energy was off the charts!

Best Tune- Nothing puts us in a better mood than this song by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. It’s called “That’s What’s Up” and we think you might enjoy the video just as much as the tune!

Best Butternut Squash Bite-
This creamy butternut squash pasta from the talented chefs of Two Peas and Their Pod had us drooling at our desks. This dish screams fall and we couldn’t be more excited to try it out this weekend. #WomenonFireApproved

Best Quickie- Working out isn’t always fun, sometimes it’s close to torture. However, we are completely on board for a 7 minute anything. This 7 minute work out can be done almost anywhere- on your lunch break, right when you wake up, or even while you’re waiting for your coffee to brew.
