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 followers, how are you? In my last travel post, I visited the Port Tampa Library. Today I’m sharing a local favorite on the other side of South Tampa: Ballast Point Park. Unlike the library, I’ve been to Ballast Point numerous times throughout my life. If you’re from Tampa, you’ve probably attended a birthday party here at some point. Not only is it a great … Continue reading Ballast Point Park
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
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
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!
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
