“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation will suffice.”  — St. Thomas Aquinas

Literal Metaphor. Every woman runner knows the man who won’t be passed.

Good Grief. This $38 Liz Claiborne dress is nice for work in black or a late summer wedding in pink.

Sorry, Not Sorry. A Gmail plug-in to remove unnecessary apologies from your work emails.

Definite Maybe. This Anna Beck Cigar Band is to die for. This $40 band is also a nice option.

Old News. Why sexist coverage of women in politics matters.

Magical Realism. M.Gemi is having a sale. These low-heel sandals and breezy mules caught my eye.

Awfully Good. How to give constructive criticism without making it awkward.

Open Secret. This pleated skirt in taupe or black (petite) is on my summer-to-fall wish list.

Bittersweet. Demystifying the postpartum female body.

Plastic Glasses. Still my favorite blue-light blocking glasses.

Minor Miracle. How to beat summer breakouts. I use this tea tree face wash during the oily, sweaty summer months.

This weekend, Kyle and I are headed to Montana for our last pre-wedding planning meeting.  I booked a hotel with an outdoor pool so we could get some much needed relaxation time.  And when I’m poolside, my favorite activity is to read magazines, but I always forget how expensive they are at the drugstore.

After dropping $30 on reading material on our last vacation, I decided it was time to re-subscribe to my favorite magazines.  And Amazon makes it so easy.

Real Simple? $10 per year on auto-renewal.  Vogue?  $6 for 6-month auto-renewal.  Vanity Fair? $20 per year.  Marie Claire?  $10 on auto-renewal.  And The Economist? $12 for 3-months on auto-renewal.

Amazon has all the magazines you could ever need to read at significantly lower prices than the newsstand.  And you can cancel through your Amazon account at any time.  Just remember to recycle those pages when you’re done, either in the blue bin or through Soldier’s Angels (a charity that donates them to female military personnel serving overseas).

    Abra – I just want to say I really loved this post – from the quote in the beginning about faith to the info about Soldier’s Angels. The Ladies of Liberty program speaks to my heart. I am so glad to find out about it. Much of your blog and brand is about women helping women. I find it positive, empowering, and also enjoy the fashion and life tips. Thank you!

    If you have Amazon Prime, it includes Amazon Reading (or whatever it’s called). In addition to books, you can also download magazines and read them on the Kindle App on your iPad or tablet (phone too, but that’s not magazine-sized) in full color.

    Another place to get a single edition of print magazines at a discount is Costco – they’re sometimes 50% off the print edition posted price. The magazine rack is usually near the snack section.

The Mondays: July 22, 2024

The Crowdstrike/Microsoft Meltdown forced me to take a few days off this weekend. No laptop. No billable hours. So we packed Sloane up for a visit to a local llama farm, stopped by the pool, went for coffee, etc. Few things are as funny as watching a 23-month old feed carrots to a ravenous rescue […]

The Range: Striped Summer Sets

Yes, it’s July 22nd, but there is a lot of living to do between now and the cooler weather. And given that three-digit temperatures are becoming shockingly common, you need something light. Enter the striped linen set. Wear it now, wear it next summer.

Styling White for Fall and Winter

A white or cream business suit is a great choice in the summer, but who needs to spend hundreds of dollars on a suit that they can only wear three months of the year? Here’s how to restyle your white or cream suit for fall/winter. Cream Suits vs. White Suits // For my money, a […]
