Odds and Ends

1. These are the most calming images. Could watch all day.

2. I have full-blown misophonia when it comes to eating. You?

3. Really appreciated this read. “A misanthrope, in love with the world.”

4. The kid can DANCE. Watched it about 20 times.

5. Ohhhhhh, yes. Delia Ephron, you brought me to tears.

6. Absolutely love Short Order Poems. The “Make It Rain” poems are such a treat to find!

7. Oh my goodness, please give this beautiful arrangement a listen.

8. Compiling my all-time skin favorites for a post, I realized I’ve used this religiously every morning for years.

9. We are all following some of these Instagram accounts that need to disappear from our feed. Ha.

10. You guys, periods suck. These are so true. (Related: Have you had an ablation? Very seriously considering one.)

11. Been using these cruelty-free makeup brushes lately, and they are giving me an incredible deal for you all! Enter the code “whoorl” and you’ll get the entire set for $24 + shipping. Yes, you heard me…it’s a hell of a deal.

12. The Psychology of Narcissism. Super informative video.

13. Had a dream I was dating Anthony Bourdain last night. It wasn’t in Tokyo, though.

14. Finding the spiritual symbiosis in our most challenging relationships.

Happy Friday to you all!

    Hi! I had an ablation and it has, quite literally, changed my life. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.

        I realized I probably should have clarified after I posted that. :)

        It sounds dramatic but I feel like I got my life back.

    Oh my goodness, RUN, do not walk, to the phone and schedule that ablation TODAY!! I put it off for almost 3 years (why, I don’t know, some weird fantasy that maybe I’d want that fourth kid) but finally pulled the trigger last fall and WOW what a game changer. Without getting too gory, I do not miss all the annoying “accidents” that would still happen despite ultra tampons, pads and Thinx underwear, I do not miss being constantly anemic and exhausted, and I adore adore adore how I don’t have anything anymore! Let me know if you have questions, but truly it is an easy peasy procedure with happy anesthesia and you are just fine in two days.

    Not sure what I’m doing wrong but the code isn’t working for me for the brushes. :(

    You weren’t kidding on those brushes. Just bought a set. Even the shipping from the UK was reasonable. Thank you!

    I had thought about an ablation, went with Mirena first because my Doctor wasn’t comfortable doing a ablation when I was still in my “child-bearing” years, despite informing her we were done. Anyway, fast forward a year, started seeing a Naturopathic doctor for my thyroid and we realized my hormones were all out of whack (probably because of my thyroid issues and the Mirena). After 2 years of working on my hormones, and 7 months without the Mirena, I am back to my normal “before children” cycles.

    It takes some work (supplements and dietary changes), but no procedures needed.
