1) How to de-stress at your desk, because it’s only Wednesday. (Well + Good)

2) Stock up for winter with Boden 90 denier tights, 2 pair $35.

3) The cleaning-out-your-closet checklist we all need. (Racked)

4) Wear an ID? Get a Kate Spade lanyard or this pretty $10 beaded one.

5) How can I be more assertive at work? (The Cut)

6) Need Cardigans? Target. Cocoon cardigan and envelope back cardigan.

7) Sit all day? How much exercise you need. Maybe some HIIT? (Popsugar; YouTube)

8) The perfect boatneck tee, I could wear this every day.

9) What if salary negotiations aren’t about gender, but status? (HBR)

10) Bought Glossier’s Milk Jelly Cleanser and Stretch Concealer. Will report back.

11) Why American Workers Pay 2x the Tax as Investors. (Bloomberg)

12) This DvF side-knot skirt is a bit of a splurge, but so worth it.

What I Need. More of the greatest hair conditioning treatment, ever. I mean, ever.

What I Loved. You know I love a good before and after; don’t miss this one.

What I’m Making. Sweet potato soup with crispy black lentils. Get the lentils here.

    Any leads on retractable id holders? I just can’t bring myself to wear a lanyard!

    Oh my! That before and after! what great bones and even better modern result. Love everything about it

  3. Yasmin says:

    That skirt is to die for! That’s going on my wishlist. In the alternative, does anyone know of any budget versions ( under $100) of the DVF skirt?

  4. Sarah says:

    I am obsessed with the glossier cleanser. It’s the best I’ve found at taking off my makeup – almost like a cleansing oil but it doesn’t require a second cleanse. I’ve never tried their concealer, but I also swear by Boy Brow and the Cloud Paint blushes. Their new sunscreen is great too! I’m curious to see what you think of the cleanser.

  5. Caitlin says:

    We’re coming up on tights time, huh… I need to upgrade from my shitty H&M ones. Are Boden’s worth it?

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 […]
