Odds and Ends

1. Bizarre physical symptoms over the past few months? Blame COVID-19.

2. Best new summer products from Trader Joe’s. I need that vanilla non-dairy frozen thing.

3. Almost Famous is having a 20th-anniversary reunion! #howhasitbeen20yearsomg

4. People. What is up with the large family gatherings? STAHP IT.

5. Right now is the best time to get your skincare in check. Not much longer to get three of my most-used skincare products at an incredible price!

6. New iOS 14 features families will enjoy, coming this Fall.


8. Oooh, Osmia Sunset Body Oil lovers…yes it’s been out of stock for a year, but now you can receive a free travel-sized Sunset Body Oil (1 oz/$25 value) with any SITEWIDE purchase of $60 or more through this weekend at Integrity Botanicals while supplies last. Just use the code OSMIA.

9. Same shirt for 40 years. This is amazing.

10. I…errrr….what? (Don’t even ask how I came across this.)

11. The Dixie Chicks changed their name.

12. Amazon’s Big Style Sale is happening! Love this swim cover-up and this robe.

Happy Friday! Wishing you a relaxing weekend.

    Hello! I have read your writing and loved your work for easily 10 years and this might be the first time I’ve commented! One thing I learned recently is that the use of the word “kimono” to describe, you know, robes and open sleeve wrap style jackets etc. is rooted in cultural appropriation of traditional Japanese dress. and there’s a long history of discrimination of Japanese people in the united states. I follow little koto’s closet on instagram and she’s been active about this topic and i’ve really been inspired by her leadership in lifting up Black, Indigenous, and voices of other people of color in fashion topics. Here’s a little more info on Kimono. https://densho.org/my-kimono-is-not-your-couture/ Some retailers are getting on board with changing the names of their clothes and of course, some are not. I thought you would want to know!

    Hmmm that Texas family was shaken? Pretty sure they were warned.
    No that’s insensitive sorry.
    I hope they all are okay.
