Hi readers, do you have a spare umbrella? It has been raining all day in a very odd bout of winter weather. However, it is keeping with the whole not really feeling like Christmas atmosphere. So why not make another wish list? 😅 I don’t really like giving my money to places that already have a lot, so I’ve a couple of tags on the right … Continue reading Indie Biz Wish List
Howdy readers, everything okay? I hope that you’re well even if with dangerous weather and political events having been trying. To be honest, I can’t really tell anyone what to do, but if you write or tweet or Insta a rant, I will support you and retweet it!! I can also provide distraction from real life with things on which you can spend money. Here are … Continue reading 5 Outfits You Need for Fall
Hi readers, did your September fly by? September 15th marked the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month in the United States which celebrates the contributions and culture of Hispanic and Latino Americans. It runs until October 15th. So it seemed a great reason for another installment of sharing some great finds from Shop Latinx! Shop Latinx is an online directory featuring independent businesses with Latinx owners. … Continue reading Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
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.
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
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!
Hello readers, do you like chilly weather? It’s always fun when it gets cold enough in winter– in Florida at least– to see your breath! We actually finally turned our heater on after it’d just been on the air conditioning. With such ranging temps (not to mention someone in the house who works with children), a flu was inevitable for me. I spent some of the … Continue reading Flu Season
