Way I Spent 10 Minutes. How Has the World Changed in Your Lifetime?

What I’m Watching. When gov’t works as intended by Samantha Bee (video).

What Made Me Laugh. Macrame wall hangings are back. Welcome to the 1970s.

What I’m Passing On. Dirty Lemon waters. The packaging, the business model, the brand is cool.  But the Detox is just lemon juice with charcoal in it, and the Skin/Hair is just master cleans sans molasses.  At $65 for 6 waters, it’s a hard pass.

    that trench coat is gorge but I wish retailers would stop with the exposed zippers!!! It makes dresses less formal/flexible and doesn’t really add much to the design IMO

  3. Anna says:

    I thought you’d already ordered the Dirty Lemon water? Did you try it and it not work out or cancel?

  4. LS says:

    That trench coat is amazing. Everything I want. My search continues for one like it that is ethically made. Nicole Birger comes close but it’s missing that perfect grey color.

    I am always looking for “cut these unnecessary spending habit links” but HATE when they act like making coffee at home or bringing lunch to work is somehow free! Cheaper, yes, but there are costs associated with both. You don’t just pocket the extra savings!

      Agreed. One of those nespresso pods is 1.10 a piece. And I always tend to overfill homemade lunches.

Shopbop’s Best Slight-Splurges

Recently, I decided to stop buying so much fast fashion. True, some of my favorite pants and dresses came from Old Navy and H&M, and there’s nothing wrong with snagging a deal on something you’ll really wear. But I’m moving into spring with a new shopping mentality.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
