👑 Lil Treasures #143: The Man Queen and a Christmas Pinecone
We're talking Spit-Gate and imaginary football teams
Welcome to this week’s edition of Lil Treasures! Not much to say today, it’s been quite an eventful couple of days. I’ve been deep in the throes of the internet after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. She was the longest-reigning British monarch, and although there were some problematic things about her reign, she certainly held herself with lots of class. RIP, Lilibet.
I’m also additionally sad to accept the reality that Charles has now taken her place! Just. So unsettling. I’ve definitely been caught up in somberness of it all and also doing a lot of internet royal family deep dives, anyone else? Lots going ‘round on the internet this week to keep us all distracted for a while. Make sure you don’t get too in the weeds out there, guys!
Here are this week’s treasures:

🫖Listen, if you haven’t been sucked in to the drama that encompasses the new movie Don’t Worry Darling, I tip my hat to you. I have been unintentionally pulled in and now there is no return. Do a bit of Googling and you will have so. many. questions. We talked about Harry Styles Spit-Gate and all things Miss Flo-related on The More You Know this week if you to dive into the tea!
🖼️The official White House gallery portraits of former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle were just unveiled this week! They are for sure very nice but the best part of the whole thing was Barack’s glowing review of Sharon Sprung, who painted Michelle:
