Heather Dwight (Owner + #CallunaWhitney Dancing Queen)

TV Shows: Outlander series. The Crown. Cheer (so good!) Fleabag. Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I watched Love is Blind and the only reason I stayed was for Lauren + Cameron’s relationship. To start Tiger King or not….Schitt’s Creek and Ozark are also on my list (need more time in the week!)

Movies: I just watched the movie Wonder (based on the book my daughter has read) Very moving and feel good. Looking forward to watching Parasite and Bombshell

Books: Re-reading the entire Harry Potter series right now (for the 5th time) – started with my kids but kept going. On book 7! Becoming by Michelle Obama. Also, reading the Outlander series – on book 6 right now (it’s a commitment but I love long books and historical fiction). Atomic Habits.

Podcasts + News: I watch Rachel Maddow daily. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. I am also a huge Twitter user for news and political updates.


Kristen Kennedy (Lead Planner + Social Media Guru)

TV Shows: Succession, Top Chef, Killing Eve, The Americans, Survivor, Keeping Up With The Kardashians (don’t judge me).

Movies: Bombshell, Knives Out, Sideways, Father of The Bride, Julie & Julia, It’s Complicated.

Melanie Robertz (Lead Planner + Calluna Hype Girl)

TV Shows: The Morning Show! One of the best shows I’ve seen in years. If anyone hasn’t had the pleasure of watching Modern Love on Amazon – thank me later. This is Us…obviously. CHEER!! If you didn’t catch onto the craze – now is the time. It’s not even because I was in that world for a bit – it’s just THAT good.  Schitt’s Creek – we recently started watching and it is quite hilarious and a good background show that you don’t have to take so seriously. Confession – we did binge Love is Blind and I’m ashamed – and would NOT recommend if you want to keep your braincells 😉

Movies Anything musical or Nancy Meyers.

Books: Educated + Becoming – for the most exquisite memoirs I’ve ever come across. Listened to each via audio book and would highly recommend the same. Other goodies recently read: Such a Fun Age + The Great Believers (for a look at our society and how it shapes us).  Matchmaking for Beginners + Bread and Wine (for feel goods). The Great Alone + The Alice Network (for historical adventures). The Testaments, We Came Here to Forget + The Couple Next Door (to get your heart beating fast).

Podcasts: The Daily Podcast each AM, followed by weekly installments of Brene Brown’s Unlocking Us + Bad on Paper (love Grace + Becca). Together Apart by NYT is next on my list!

Another resource I’ve been Loving – Girls Night In (an amazing resource / fun online destination in itself) created Stay Home, Take Care which has a lot of prompts that are fun to follow along.


Gina Yeon (Assistant Planner + Blogging Pro)

TV Shows: Little Fires Everywhere, Alone, Peaky Blinders, Outlander, Kingdom, The Office, The Final Table.

Movies: Parasite. Little Women, Onward, Emma, 1917.

Books: If you have a library card, you can download the app Libby, and there are tons of books and audiobooks on there!

Know My Name (this has been the best book I’ve ever read/listened to – it is a very heavy book though, but I think super necessary to read). The Boys in the Boat, Pachinko, The Great Believers, Olive, Again.

Workout Classes: Pure Barre is doing classes online, where currently you can get a 60 day free trial! Youtube is also a great resource. I am very fortunate to have a regional park behind my house, so I’ve been taking my dog on mini hikes.

Podcasts: Play it Brave. I also listen/have listened to a lot of true crime podcasts – To Live and Die in LA, Serial, Up and Vanished.
