Hello followers, have you checked in with your friends? I know it’s summer. Maybe it’s the heat? But I just feel kind of in the dumps. Maybe I should’ve actually watched the World Cup? I feel like buying something, but you know me. I can never justify just buying something, and I’m really indecisive. But I also do like sharing in case anyone else is interested! … Continue reading July Picks
Hello followers, do you utilize your library? The Port Tampa Library is one of those buildings I’ve passed dozens if not hundreds of times in my life but never visited. They recently had a reception to celebrate their 20th year, so it was the perfect opportunity to check it out! Undoubtedly, the first thing you notice about it is the architecture. I don’t think that … Continue reading Port Tampa Library
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
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!
Hi followers, are you celebrating this month? We’re in the middle of LGBT Pride Month, a time in particular for the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and trans community to celebrate diverse sexual orientations and genders. June was chosen to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots which is said to have sparked LGBT activism in the United States. While there is certainly time and cause for cheer, we’d be … Continue reading Blogger Bills: Happy Pride Month!
Hello followers, are you well? Last year I was able to join Pur Cosmetics’s Insider community which allows me to weigh in on beauty matters and earn points for various activities. TBH, I was not too impressed with the panel experience (IDEK if it’s still active), but they did send me 3 of their Glitters to review for their websites. But, when I clicked the … Continue reading Pur Eye Polish Glitters
Salutations followers, how are you? This week I want to share a documentary that I recently watched about the Haitian Revolution. 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
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
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.
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?
