1) Are women more likely than men to use just their first names when they introduce themselves?

2) Love sleek totes?  You need to see this grey Mango satchel and this super chic black tote.

3) Why Men Think Women Are Flirting with Them When They’re Not. (video)

4) This $70 Luxe sweater from Everlane might be the perfect fall sweater at the perfect fall price.

5) The story behind the one pot pasta recipe that conquered the Internet.

6) Meghan at Wit & Whimsy has her pics for fall handbags.  All I can think about is this burgundy satchel.

7) Mother Jones discusses why salad isn’t as virtuous as it seems.  The WaPost covers why salad is totally overrated. #longlivecheeseburgers

8) Urban Decay Ozone Pencil is the perfect primer for lipstick or eye makeup.  For something in a drugstore price range, try this NYX primer pencil.

9) In-flight Wi-fi prices go up as demand surges.  Or why I no longer bother with Gogo’s slow connection.

10) Boden has some phenomenal shoes right now.  I love these Court Heels in six colors and these Audrey Bow Flats in three.

11) Banning child labor imposes naive Western ideals on complex problems.  So what should we do instead?

Eye Candy.  These Fred Leighton earrings are magical.  They’re so pretty and yet, still modern.

Monday Morning: December 5, 2023

This weekend, I got two hours to myself for the first time in months. Really to myself. My child was asleep. My dogs were asleep. Kyle was off playing cards with his friends. My house was clean, and there was nothing else to do but sit in my bed and scroll Instagram. It was glorious. […]

The Counter: The Post-Product Era

When I was in my 20s, I bought every trendy nail polish, eye color, and lip gloss.  Sure, I could only wear them on the weekends, but why not wear emerald green liner?  In my 30s, I became enamored with skincare and took every “must-have” product for a spin.  But in my 40s, my skin […]
