Uncommon Goods Gift Guide

This post was sponsored by Uncommon Goods. Hello readers, the year’s last call isn’t rushing you too much, is it? I usually try to start early when it comes to gift-giving because I have to figure out how much money I have, and I like searching for that perfect present for everyone. With all of the extra holiday activities though, it never seems to be … Continue reading Uncommon Goods Gift Guide

Hippie Look Pin

Last Minute Hippie Costume Idea

Have y’all been watching Ken Burns’s The Vietnam War? I knew his documentaries had a reputation for being long, but 10 parts? And it’s so dense. It’s weird to hear music from The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo against scenes of war when I know the scene from the former is rather salacious. We were supposed to go a “Hippie Fest” a couple of … Continue reading Last Minute Hippie Costume Idea

Shop Latinx Wishlist!

So I was originally going to blog about prison labor and companies to avoid, but since writing my Beauty Bakerie post, I’ve been reminded that there’s no ethical consumption under capitalism (hard to trace every factor of a product) and trickle-down economics don’t work. Furthermore, the companies benefiting from what’s being called slavery are the usual suspects like Walmart which may be difficult for poor … Continue reading Shop Latinx Wishlist!

Stripe Floral Pin

Stripes and Florals

I’ve been trying to be more blogger-y lately– participating in Twitter chats, thinking about doing Instagram stories, and documenting everything. So here I am at the car dealership with some complimentary chips that I’m sure as heck going to take if everything is wrong with my car. I chickened out of taking pictures there. I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I want to develop … Continue reading Stripes and Florals

Girlfriend Experience & Office Wear

I just finished watching the Starz series The Girlfriend Experience which seems loosely based on the 2009 film of the same name. I saw the movie a while ago and don’t remember it exactly, but the tv program was much more of ride. It was probably not the show’s intention to make one want to emulate Riley Keough’s Christine Reade, but it was impossible for me not to notice Christine’s wardrobe. … Continue reading Girlfriend Experience & Office Wear

Fall Outfit

Fall Chill

It’s technically fall here in Florida which honestly means hurricane season. I hope everyone affected by Hurricane Matthew is staying safe. Besides freaking forces of nature, we’ve been very unpredictable. It can be cool in the morning but then sizzling or raining in the afternoon 😒  The equinox has passed, so I’m going to wear booties, damn it! I think I’m always going to associate fall with going … Continue reading Fall Chill

Rags2Riches

My heritage has always been important to me and while it can be incredibly generalizing to paint all of the Philippines as “poor” that is just personally from where my family comes. Certain images and traits like charity have been seared into my personality, but donations can be problematic (e.g., corrupt organizations). That’s why I’m interested in brands that either feature local artisans and/or further teach those … Continue reading Rags2Riches
