The Edition: No. 369

Oct 25, 2023

When I changed up my newsletter late this summer, I stopped writing The Edition.  This week, I got an actual e-mail petition from 11 readers who work together at one of our state legislature’s asking to bring it back “in some form.”  Well, they got their wish.

The truth is, I simply have too many links to share for one newsletter.  So you can catch the Tuesday newsletter and our new Thursday interview series on Substack.

You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over. // Richard Branson

+ Self-silencing is making women sick.

+ These <$50 high heels are stupid comfortable and easy to wear.

+ This “new” phone etiquette is only new to Boomers.

+ Top Under-$110 Ann Taylor Picks: This blue dress and this tab-detail one.

+ How should I approach dating in my 40s?

+ Adjustable buttons solve holiday eating season. I bought these in early pregnancy.

+ Getting a grip on mid-life career management.

+ Free People has cool sweaters.  This one is my next purchase.

+ The Art of Being a Morning Person.

+ The Softstreme Lululemon — pants and sweatshirt — set is awesome.

+ “Why my house is limiting Christmas time to two weeks this year.”

+ Parade makes the softest, cutest Amazon-available baby rompers.

One Long, Interesting Read. Betty Friedan and the Movement that Outgrew Her.

This Sheet Pan Steak and Vegetables is the perfect meal to make for your in-laws, a Friday night date, or a Sunday Dinner with friends.  It was easy and quick, and the leftovers were great the next day.  Who says you need to dirty every dish in the kitchen to make a nice meal?

    Hey Abra– sorry to be this person but the shoes link goes to the New Yorker Betty Friedan article. I am truly intrigued by sub $50 shoes though!

  2. Jamie says:

    It sounds really stressful to have to condense everything holidays related into just two weeks. By the time I get around to baking cookies, we’re already two weeks in anyway. And also deal with my kids noticing that everyone else has their decorations up and we don’t.

    • Julia says:

      Agreed! I am fine with confining Christmas things to the weekends in December. It allows me the space to fit in our favourite traditions. However, elf on the shelf is a never in my house. I will die on that hill!!!!

      • Anna says:

        I don’t understand why any parent would want to participate in elf on the shelf. It seems so stressful. Granted I just have a one year old, so who knows if I will surrender to the social pressure, but I have absolutely no desire to take part in that. We didn’t have it as a kid. It’s not my tradition. Is Santa (and in my family, Three Kings Day in January) not enough?

    • E says:

      Agree. Having the whole month makes it much easier to fit in all the things I want without it feeling rushed, but I am not the type of mom who worries about making every day magical (I just aim for a magical season). If your outlook is different, I can see how that would be stressful.

  3. Judy says:

    Curious – How much is the Substack subscription? How does what you post there on Tuesdays compare to this? Thanks for making this free version!

    • Belle says:

      $6 per month. There’s nothing to purchase in the Substack usually, just articles. The first pick of articles I save for the week goes in there. The posts about each article are a bit longer. Then, the Interview series on Thursdays as well.

    Abra, we stopped watching news at our house on TV. What are your favorite reading sources to keep you up to date on world events and general life topics (career, women’s issues, etc.)

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
