Kites rise highest against the wind – not with it. // Winston Churchill

+ Has the pandemic transformed the office forever?

+ This sweater dress bridges business casual and WFH. It’s awesome.

+ Setting up a home gym on a budget. I recommend Target’s Blogilates line.

+ Have ‘maskne’?  This Revolution Beauty sheet mask is a must have.

+ Phone interview tips to get you to the next round.

+ My favorite pajamas come in new patterns. Target has a similar one for less.

+ How to meet new people after a year in isolation.

+ This avocado keeper will keep your half-used avocado fresh for weeks.

+ The unemployment numbers don’t capture the damage to women’s careers.

+ This Dobby collared shirts and this long tunic are both great for WFH.

+ I love a good home tour, and this Austin home is it.

+ This is the softest sweatshirt that I have ever owned.

+ Long Read. They may finally have solved the mystery of the Dyatlov Pass Incident.

Caramelized Shredded Vietnamese Beef.

Easy. Tasty. Better than takeout (esp. if you live in a place with limited takeout options).

    I read that Dylatov pass article last night after seeing a tweet on how Disney’s Frozen played a role, lol. So interesting!

    There’s no much coverage on how the current times are harming women financially, professionally, psychologically. So disturbing. I’m all for awareness – don’t get me wrong – but what I really want to know is what our country, employers and society are going to do about it.

    • E says:

      Thanks for framing the issue as one that’s bigger than employers. It’s a nationwide issue that demands nationwide solutions. Shifting the onus to employers just creates extra strain on childless workers to pick up the slack for those that have shouldered the unenviable burden of supervising homeschool during this pandemic. I think it’s time for us to start thinking about some sort of national childcare system or aid, instead of forcing families to piecemeal whatever help they can cobble together. I also don’t think forcing employers to provide this child care is a great solution, since we’ve tried that with healthcare with bad results.

    What’s your take on the upset regarding Kamala wearing Dolce & Gabbana – In particular, people calling on her to make a statement about it?

    While I agree that her team would be better suited to avoid the brand for a whole host of reasons – but I simultaneously think the demands that Madam Vice President *make a statement* about her wardrobe are beyond ridiculous.

    Were we critiquing Pence’s blazers this way?

    Those treasure and bond shirts are wonderful!!! SO soft, I bought white and black. I see now there is a blue. 🙂

  5. Stefanie S. says:

    The Target Moonlight Pajama dupes don’t hold up as well – they pill very quickly and become incredibly scratchy after a few washes. Stick with the Target flannel PJs, which hold up better IMO.

    • Cait says:

      Was just about to post a comment saying this exact thing! I have 1 year old Moonlight PJs and 6 month old Target dupes. Baby them both- cold wash, hang dry. Both worn and washed with the same frequency. Moonlight ones are still silky soft with just a tiny bit of pilling starting to show between the thighs. Target ones are so pilled and rough that I dread when they come up in the pajama rotation. I love Target dupes of most things, but this is not one of them! Not even good pajamas on their own merit even without comparing to the Moonlight ones.

  6. Rachel says:

    I have that “softest” sweatshirt ever in the turtleneck form and was extolling praise for it to my friends. Its so comfy, especially for WFH and you can layer underneath for extra warmth during a N’oreaster.

  7. Rachel says:

    Are there really people out there who eat half of an avocado and don’t eat the other half for WEEKS??

    • e says:

      LOL. On the rare occasion I don’t finish a whole avocado in one sitting, I find using saran wrap that touches the fleshy cut part completely keeps it fresh for a few days. Just have to scoop the brown top layer off, if one has formed.

  8. Kat says:

    Maybe it’s just me but every time you link something to &other stories it goes to the home page and not the actual item and it’s really hard to find. Odd because that doesn’t happen with other retailers you link to.

Plus, there’s […]
