Odds and Ends

1. Installing the Face App that makes you look older? Hard pass for me (and it’s not because I’m vain). ;)

2. So you’re telling me that my procrastination has nothing to do with self-control? Go on…

3. Please read the comments on this thread and cry-laugh for the next hour.

4. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale all-access starts today! Here are my favorite picks. (This is the best bra I’ve ever owned. I now have it in 5 colors.)

5. Women are starting successful businesses after 50. Never too late!

6. I love Mark Bittman and his most recent article is beyond eye-opening about the state of farming and food in this country.

7. Gray hair is trending something fierce.

8. This is gutting. New York children read the letters of their detained migrant peers.

9. Why so many Christians go on mission trips to help children but actually don’t want them here. Great read.

10. Love what Sandra Oh has to say about aging.

11. Game of Thrones killed it on the Emmy nominations.

12. OMG, my favorite shampoo for tangled hair has been discontinued. We are going to try this one and I’ll report back.

13. I love this shirt so much and can’t wait until it’s back in stock. I support ALL of my congresswomen.

Happy Friday! It’s SO FREAKING HOT HERE.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks (Early Access Starts Today!)

It’s the most wonderful time of the yeeeaaaaaaar. Yes! Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just started today and boy, do I have a lot of picks to share with you all.

The sale opens to the general public in a week on July 19th, but Nordstrom cardholders have this entire week to shop the sale beforehand. (Not a cardholder? You can apply for an account to be approved today here. You guys, I actually got a card myself earlier this week. If you know anything about this sale, so many items sell out within the first week and dang it, I wanted in! So let’s hold hands and be new cardholders together.)

I love that so many new Fall arrivals are included in this sale. I’m all about the cardigans and blazers and boots, my friends.

Let’s get this party started! Happy sale shopping to you and you and you.


Odds and Ends

1. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access is on! See all my picks here.

2. Serena Williams is fierce and gorgeous and all of the things.

3. “Can I pick your brain?” 5 words of DOOM. Maybe try this instead?

4. You guys, when did pop culture become homework!? Ha. #cantkeepup

5. How to cope with a friendship breakup.

6. Have you heard about the sonic devices that only teenagers can hear? Can you hear it?

7. My favorite waist-defining dresses. I get compliments on this one all the time.

8. Trying this new naturally-derived retinol serum. Will it make the grade? We shall soon see.

9. Speaking of retinol serums, will anything ever beat out my very favorite one? Not sure. Right now, you can get it (and anything from African Botanics) for 20% off with the code WHOORL until July 13th.

10. Very cool illustrations that take a deeper look at the everyday products we consume.

11. Always love a good beach read!

12. Parenting screen time coaches are apparently a thing.

13. We need more critics of color. YES TO THIS.

14. Tired of being the one who remembers ALL of the things? You are not alone.

Happy Friday to you and you and you.
