The Edition: No. 93

Apr 18, 2019

The boisterous sea of liberty is never without a wave. — Thomas Jefferson

Glossed. The Lipstick I Wore to My Divorce. (Must read.)

Follow Up. This Sulwhasoo serum lipstick in deep berry or soft rose, both amazing shades.

Stereotyped. Women candidates are still seen as being too emotional.

Beached. Excited about my new pool hat and cover-up.

Appeared. Why influencers are going “authentic.”

Worked. Nordstrom Rack has new office-appropriate dresses.  This $35 ruffle-hem dress is a steal for spring.

Achieved. Why success doesn’t always feel successful.

Warmed. Faux-fur throws have become my go-to housewarming gift.

That is an Earl Grey iced tea with a sweet and salty cream froth.  If you come to my house this summer, that’s what we’ll be drinking.  But we’ll be drinking it out of these pretty, dotted glasses.

    I had no idea they carried Sulwhasoo now at Nordstrom. Their skincare is divine, though I can usually get better deals with direct-from-Korea suppliers. $38 for a lipstick is hard to stomach, but it’s definitely a luxury product…

    Thank you for linking the Office Appropriate Dresses section at Rack! I’m eyeing the shift version of that popular Lush tunic: https://www.nordstromrack.com/shop/product/2474379/lush-3-4-length-sleeve-novak-shift-dress?color=PEACOAT

How to Survive the Blistering Heat

We had a wet spring, followed by a mild May and June. So I was not at all prepared for the triple digit heat that hit the Pacific Northwest like a freight train this week. Instead, I just feel lucky that we had any nice weather at all. But existing when it’s this hot is […]
