Odds and Ends

1. A woman’s greatest enemy? Lack of time to herself.

2. Obsessed with these photos of 20- and 30-somethings with gray hair. #grayhairrevolution

3. “You better change your dog’s name because I want to name my newborn the same thing.” This actually happened.

4. Is there such a thing as a “drama-free relationship?”

5. Compression socks are the jam, people.

6. Have you seen the RoastMe forum on Reddit? It’s like the anti-Instagram.

7. I’m in Laguna Beach and LOVING Dew Skin for my face. Why am I just coming around to this tinted amazingness?

8. Gwendoline Christine is the shit.

9. “Goodnight Moon” as read by LeVar Burton and Neil deGrasse Tyson. So good.

10. What does your attachment style say affect your work-life balance?

11. Man, I am loooovvvving bodysuits right now. This one’s my fave.

12. J Lo is FIFTY and damn, she looks amazing.

Happy Friday! We are sandy and blissful in Laguna Beach this week.

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.
