June 2018 Empties

Hey followers, did you remember to do that thing? I totally forgot about doing “empties” posts. Probably because I’ve been trying to cut back on spending and waiting to have enough for a collective post! So apologies that I didn’t write down my findings like a scientist and that some reviews may be vague or indecisive. I’ll try to balance groups with products about which … Continue reading June 2018 Empties

Alles Gute zum Vatertag!

Hallo followers! Sprechen Sie Deutsch?  It was Father’s Day recently in the US, and it is ridiculously difficult to shop for my dad. All of those suggested gifts like ties, watches, fishing or electric tools, he’d never use! 😕 So I decided to finally check out Schiller’s Delicatessen and see if I could pick up some things that were unusual, that I couldn’t get anywhere else, or just … Continue reading Alles Gute zum Vatertag!

Blogger Bills: Happy Pride Month!

Embarrassingly, I don’t really know anything about Haiti which is why I wanted to check it out. I certainly wouldn’t say that I know everything about the topic now, but the movie is definitely one to see to learn and consider viewpoints with regard … Continue reading 1804: The Hidden History of Haiti

I Bought Myself Target’s Mother’s Day Box

Heyhey followers, do you celebrate Memorial Day? My dad just said there’s a tropical depression forming, so no one’s probably doing anything. It’s weird that we’ve been having storms all week, and the depression is still news to me. Is it weird that bought Target’s May Beauty Box for myself when it had a Mother’s Day theme (and I’m not a mother)? 😘 Affiliate links to … Continue reading I Bought Myself Target’s Mother’s Day Box

Cambio & Co.

Heydilly ho, followinos! How was your Mother’s Day? As I was considering what to get my mom this year, I thought about continuing my theme from Christmas– giving less material goods but donating to organizations on behalf of my giftees. I did still want to give something and since I’ve seen companies employing artisans in poverty-stricken areas, I wondered if there were any owned by Filipinos … Continue reading Cambio & Co.

Is My Mom Not Economically Anxious?

Following the US 2016 election which gave us President Trump, there seemed to be a frenzy of reporters clamoring to share his supporters’ stories. Sam Bee and Full Frontal beat me at covering this biased narrative of poor, rural whites voting out of “economic anxiety.” Bee also brought up the point that– wait for it– “working class” is not synonymous with white! At first I … Continue reading Is My Mom Not Economically Anxious?
