The Edition: No. 66

Jan 18, 2019

“I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.” — Charlotte Bronte

Chosen. Why it’s impossible to be a likeable female politician.

Flattened. These $35 Express flats are my new go-to work shoe.  Hello, comfort.

Solo. I’m 36, I’ve been single for 10 years. Spoiler Alert: I’m fine.

Topped. This $98 blazer is a great semi-casual option.  I also like this longer “sweater blazer.”

Division. Man Repeller explains the difference between ‘sorry’ people and ‘thank you’ people.  (A very interesting perspective.)

Erupted. My skin is not loving being back at work, hoping this M-61 Spot Mask helps.

Truth in Advertising. Hilariously realistic rom-com titles.

Workstation. Looking for a new desk at Target, ended up with this awesome $30 desk lamp instead.

GOAT. Is Serena Williams the poster woman for unapologetic greatness?

No big post today.  Just that I am definitely making these mini-Hasselback potatoes for a football-watching potluck this weekend.  They look fancy, but they’re not difficult to make, and they taste amazing.

    I really want the Hasselback potato recipe but the link brings me to the target lamp.

    Great links – I particularly liked the rom-com list, the perspective on being single and female, and the likability for female politicians. That last one was really well-written – I also liked Alexandra Petri’s humorous take on the same topic here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/opinions/wp/2018/11/16/im-fine-with-women-in-power-just-not-this-one-specific-woman-currently-in-power/?utm_term=.b11d51bbfbd1.

    Many interesting links. On sorry vs. thank you, neither really works from the person whose actions are wrong to the person wronged. Saying thank you makes the wrongdoer look virtuous somehow. Better not to commit the wrong.

Happy Hour: Atlantic Beach Pie

There are two kinds of people in this world: People who eat cake on their birthdays and people who don’t.  And some of the weirdos in the latter category (I said what I said) eat pie as an alternative.  So if you’re a “birthday pie” eater with a late summer celebration coming up, may I […]

The Find: The Only Wire-Free Bra That Didn’t Fail Me

After Sloane was born, I developed a seething hatred for underwire bras.  The trouble was that I had also developed a larger, slightly droopier bust.  It was a cruel irony.

The 2010s Trends I’m Loving and Leaving Behind

Our tween and teen nieces spent the first half of 2023 reviving our high school fashions.  From peasant tops to low rises, I felt like I was back bopping to N’SYNC in my mint-green sedan for a minute.  Now, our 20-something direct reports are bringing back the 2010s in a big way, and I am […]
