1. My favorite $2 eye cream.
As you might know I firmly believe that eye cream is a huge scam from skincare companies to get you to spend more money on less product. I refuse to pay $20+ for a product that’s basically the same as most face lotions.
That being said, I’ve been religiously using Nivea’s Soft Moisturizing Creme as an eye cream for months. You can get the .84oz size for less than $2 at a drugstore.
It’s an all around cream  for your face, hands, or body and has jojoba oil and Vitamin E and those are things that sound good for my skin or some shit. More importantly, it works. I dab it around my eyes at night and again in the morning. It’s super moisturizing, not greasy, and it keeps my skin nice and moisturized, subsequently reducing the appearance of the fine lines around my eyes.
That is my endorsement, please stop paying more than $5 for eye creams, it’s just not worth it.

  2. To each their own…

    …but I couldn’t get past the 2 minute mark on that Taylor Swift song. No me gusta.

  3. Sometimes I feel sorry for men…

    …because they’ll never know the pure joy of finding and then wearing a skirt with pockets.

  5. Look at this dog.

We have friends visiting this weekend and they brought their dog. Their pup starting barking at some unknown noise outside and Callie, true to character, found a place to hide from the ‘danger’.

  6. I am trying to see things in perspective. My dog wants a bite of my peanut butter chocolate chip bagel. I know she cannot have this, because chocolate makes dogs very sick. My dog does not understand this. She pouts and wraps herself around my leg like a scarf and purrs and tries to convince me to give her just a tiny bit. When I do not give in, she eventually gives up and lays in the corner, under the piano, drooping and sad. I hope the universe has my best interest in mind like I have my dog’s. When I want something with my whole being, and the universe withholds it from me, I hope the universe thinks to herself: "Silly girl. She thinks this is what she wants, but she does not understand how it will hurt.

  7. It’s not a Ferguson problem, it’s a St. Louis problem

    Some historical context about Ferguson and St. Louis

    While this incident is a symptom of a larger, national issue of racial prejudice and our policing system Ferguson is not special, St. Louis is notoriously segregated by geography and the metro area ranks amongst the worst in terms of disparities between African-Americans and caucasians across all measures of quality of life.

    Between this state’s slave history and Jim Crow laws it’s almost a surprise this hasn’t happened sooner.

    There are some in St. Louis who will insist this is a Ferguson issue occurring in isolation, but it’s not, it’s a St. Louis issue and hopefully a wake up call for this city.

  8. Not an outrageously original outfit, I just love these flutter sleeves.

Also, my chin could cut glass. Shit is sharp.

  9. A natural musk ox

    I have to buy perfumes that smell so sickingly sweet and floral that they make you want to hurl because I am a musk ox disguised as a human.

    I’ve tried everything but any perfume that has a hint of a deeper, musky scent makes me smell like a dank warthog that lives in a humid swamp; while the overly sweet and floral perfumes smell rather mild and pleasant on me.

    I like to think it’s just my natural chemical balance and not some sign that I constantly smell terrible. No one has complained though…to my face at least.

  10. Every night, without fail, we turn off our lights, snuggle in our beds to go to sleep and we hear the telltale sounds of our neighbors’ kids squealing and laughing outside

    I know my judgmental bitch side wants to complain that their parents let them stay out so late but really I’m just impressed those tykes (I would guess that they’re both under the age of seven) can stay up so late and still be so energetic. I pulled an all-nighter once in college and it nearly killed me.
