Odds and Ends


1. This 10-year-old is my hip hop hero. (Remember when Wita did her own little pop-and-lock routine in her bloomers?)

2. Strangers sit in the dark, check out what happens when the lights come on. Very cool.

3. You guys, this is a definite problem in my car. My 5-year-old shouldn’t know who Eazy-E is. (It was an accident! Damn shuffle!)

4. Why does anyone do yoga, anyway? Great article.

5. Women apply an average of 168 chemicals on their bodies every day. Yep. Yet another reason I love Beautycounter.

6. Oooh, I love book lists. 15 books that you won’t be able to put down.

7. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still hopping. $39 for this necklace? SOLD.

Happy Friday to you all!

An Amazon Summer Giveaway!


Friends, I have a slightly amazing giveaway for you today. I’m partnering with nine amazing bloggers to offer two lucky winners one $500 Amazon gift card each. Just ponder some of the fab items you could purchase with your gift card… (Apple watch! iPad! Samsung camera! Kate Spade bag! ALL OF THE FUN THINGS.)

Enter to win between July 21-31, 2015 via the Rafflecopter widget below; you need to login via Facebook or with an e-mail so we know you aren’t a robot, but you will not be added to any mailing list! Basically, if you follow all 10 bloggers on Instagram (and you will want to, because each of these ladies is flat out awesome), you will have tossed your hat in the ring 10 times (x 2 since there are two gift cards to win…sometimes math is awesome). Once the giveaway ends, the winner will be chosen randomly and contacted via Instagram, with 48 hours to respond. Good luck!
