Odds and Ends

This gold paperclip necklace I’ve been wearing daily gets tons of compliments and it’s very well-priced for solid 14k gold.

5 mistakes people make with succulents.

Holy moly, 40% off sitewide at Clove and Hallow this weekend! My top picks – this brush (everyone should own it), this lip color in Desert Rose, this lip mask, and this palette is fantastic.

A brief history of hotdogs.

How to wear eyeshadow over 40. #hoodedlidsunite

What fresh hell is this? Can’t think of a better title for a book about perimenopause.

Y’all know I only talk about beauty boxes if they are truly worth it – well, Beauty Heroes July discovery is incredible. The Marshmallow Poof firming and filling cream?! UNREAL. #rundontwalk

My favorite bronzers. I’d also like to add this newcomer in Brûlée to the list.

Some interesting charts regarding COVID.

35 women tell their stories about being assaulted by Bill Cosby. (I cannot believe he is being released. Makes me sick.)

Why we don’t see kids playing outside as much.

Do you like chickpeas as much as I do? If so, you’ll like these recipes.

Cancel Amazon Prime. I don’t think I could quit – I’m fully entrenched at this point.

Happy Friday! We are heading back home from Colorado today and I am actually quite ready for my own bed. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

    Oh Amazon. I truly try to avoid it if I can, but they have me forever now that I can get Whole Foods groceries delivered to my door. Well, that and my general dislike for stores combined with procrastination tendencies make 1-day shipping my best friend.

    Let’s be real. Now that so many companies use Amazon Web Services, even if you think you’re not using Amazon, you probably are.

    I don’t even know how to feel about it anymore. I guess we just hope that the people at the top never hatch a nefarious plan to take over the world.

      I haven’t stepped foot in a grocery store since March 2020 because of Prime Whole Foods delivery.

    Listen, (not trolling, not a bully, not a jerk or an idiot) you can absolutely quit Amazon easily and without any “harm” to your family unit or life……you just don’t want to.

    And Amazon knows this and will continue to be the monster POS it is.
