    Drooling over the lemon poppy challah, but the link is swapped with the Olaplex kit.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the article about young people obsessed with the 80s. It dovetails with my hope/dream for my kids’ generation upcoming…I’ve always said, we 90s kids had *so* much fun and freedom. All this tracking, photo taking, social media, gps, etc., leaves them all vulnerable to getting caught, getting in trouble, etc. My sister used to literally track my niece through her friends’ social media accounts alone. I like to think the younger generation—who are proving to be smarter than we give them credit for —are going to soon realize, “hey, if we give up this phone/social media we can be free and happy and go and do without being watched.” Not to mention the emotional turmoil social media inflicts on them…

    Anyway, thank you for coming to my delusional, rose colored glasses TED talk!

    Ugh I wasn’t shopping but that NB tunic is so great

    Oh my goodness, I am just using this as an anonymous place to shallowly say “I knew it!” I have been following that bank from a distance for years, and was even recruited for a position with them a few years ago. The only reason I paid attention is because everything just struck me as super shady. Just hit my gut, never added up, never made sense. I knew something(s) was up!

It’s been a fun week talking about shoes. A former co-worker texted me yesterday and asked what shoe I would buy, if I were only going to buy one shoe for summer. And, of course, I told her that I have two suggestions. Her response: “Typical.”
