Odds and Ends

1. Those of you with tweens/teens, get ready for an ugly cry.

2. What a week. Look at all the firsts for women in this week’s midterms. And here are some of the assholes that lost. (Not my choice of words, but still…)

3. Best neutral/nude/pink lipsticks at a great price.

4. Children of the caravan. (Interesting how Trump suddenly isn’t talking about that horribly scary migrant caravan post-midterms. #eyeroll)

5. This is the hardest thing to watch, but it’s important. Gun reform, you all. Before it’s your child.

6. I can’t believe things like this are happening in the White House. Fascist much?

7. Okay! Enough with politics today. Everyone in my family is trying to steal this set. My kids love the rollerballs before bed and I’m currently wearing the Rise scent as my perfume. This would make the BEST holiday gift.

8. After much research (you know me), we are seriously considering adopting a retired greyhound for the family.

9. This sweater is on sale and you should buy it.

10. 25 comics that perfectly sum up the internet.

11. Oh, I love kitchen gadgets.

12. On this week’s Selfie episode, we are talking hair upkeep, facial toning devices, and our favorite morning and evening rituals.

Happy Friday!

    Greyhounds are so, so sweet. They seem like big dogs but fold themselves up into tiny balls and sleep like 16-18 hours a day. They are also quiet and clean (as far as dogs go). Just my two cents.

      Thank you! Yes, we’ve looked into so many different breeds, and Greyhounds seem to be an almost perfect fit for our family and lifestyle. (I’ve wanted one since my twenties.)

    The Greyhound – YES! They are the friendly introverts of the canine kingdom.

    When I met my husband he had an adopted greyhound, and I immediately fell in love…first with Nelson, then with my husband. We have since adopted three other greyhounds. They all have their own personality, but are all so sweet, loving, and mellow. I highly recommend them as a family pet. My daughter adores Penelope, our current furry family member. I also have a question…have you tried any of the Beauty Heroes Indie Spotlight boxes? I am going back and forth on which one to try (39…normal skin, some pigmentation, and fine lines).

      I have not! I need to…I’m so bogged down with holiday stuff that I haven’t gotten to it yet.

    Ahh, the joys of perfectionist Christmas wrapping! I went for a red theme this year, with red very slightly shimmery paper, red chiffon ribbon and (I was so excited to find this!) red sequins laid all nice and flat along a string. Very festive, plus decorative sequins kept turning up all over the house for days. . .
