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 2018 Picks
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.
Heyhey followers, what’s your weekend forecast? It’s pretty gorgeous in my neck of the woods. It’s even bordering on summer heat when I’m running errands in the hotbox of a car. Perhaps this is why I’m so attracted to some of the ethereal styles associated with outdoor music festivals. I would love to command such a look but I don’t think the post office is … Continue reading Festival Fashion
Hello followers, have you missed me? It was my birthday so apart from finally seeing friends and figuring out what to do with my gifts, I’ve just been otherwise busy. I’ve actually been more or less going to the gym (don’t get the wrong idea, it’s honestly 3x or less a week) but it seems impossible to be able to do all of these things. Perhaps … Continue reading Dad Fashion
Heyhey readers, you ever feel like not blogging? I had a pretty decent list of post ideas for last week but was rather busy and was just not particularly enthusiastic to write any of them. After a more analytical blog, I did want to do something more light but was honestly more interested in… the war book I’m reading 😅 Maybe it’s those pesky interests. … Continue reading 1930s Under $30
What’s up, readers, are you planning a big date? I must I admit that I do not usually employ the word “vamp” in my usual vernacular. I was just going for that sweet alliteration… Also, unless a local nerd group puts together a study group or something, I’m just scheduling on a usual Wednesday this 14th. A sexy velour dress would probably not being appropriate … Continue reading Vamp Up Your Valentine’s Day
Hello partners, are your holiday plans falling into place? I’ve been kind of swamped trying to figure out holiday budgets, gifts and other spending, not to mention blogging and everything else. So I kind of just want to take a post to sort of blah out and make sure yall don’t think I’m some kind of big fancy blogger now since my last three posts … Continue reading Rounding Down 2017
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
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
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!
