Stuff I Like: Wearing, Eating, Watching, Listening

Hello! I am back with more recommendations on stuff I like. If you have recommendations for stuff you like (or stuff you think we'd like) please feel free to leave a comment or shoot us an email! Now, on to the stuff:

This Brow Kit Which is Legit.
Marianne bought this Benefit Cosmetics Bigger & Bolder Brows Kit when she decided to get back on the ka-BROW train and because I'm basically just a follower, I trotted over to Sephora and bought it too. You guys, this kit is such a deal! It's $34 for two full size products and a mini. (It also comes with stencils that are basically useless.) Ka-BROW is $24 and High Brow is $22 and you get both in the kit - full size! Plus you get a mini brow setting gel. When I DO my brows I want it to last all day and it really, really does. Applying ka-BROW takes me a bit more time than an eyebrow pencil but it's totally worth the effort. However, if you really prefer a pencil they also have the same sweet kit with their Goof Proof pencil in place of ka-BROW. Sweet.

This Seasoning You Probably Already Know About.
Here's another Trader Joe's recommendation: Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend. I feel like people already know about this but I figured I'd tell you about it anyway. It's so GOOD. I sprinkle it on avocado toast, on veggies, on eggs, etc. It pretty much works on anything that needs an everything-savory flavor. And it's $1.99! Such a deal. If you don't have a TJs near you it is available on Amazon but at a hefty mark-up. Sorry about that.

This British Reality Show Which Could Be Longer. 
Mary Portas: Secret Shopper on Netflix, y'all! It’s the Kitchen Nightmares of the retail world. There is one season available on Netflix (more on YouTube) and even though they call it season 1 it’s actully season 3 in the UK. I don’t get why they do this? Anyway, each season is only three GD episodes and I WANT MORE. I AM AN AMERICAN AND I DEMAND 13-22 EPISODES. If you watch The Good Place (and OMG if you aren’t, get on it) this exchange made me laugh so hard I had to pause the DVR:
Eleanor: What's this show called again?
Tahani: Deirdre and Margaret. It ran for sixteen years on the BBC. They did nearly thirty episodes.
Heh. ANYWAY. Mary Portas: Secret Shopper is super fun to watch and she’s also my Hair Goalz goddess. This is just exactly the kind of thing you can watch on a Sunday afternoon when you also want to play Candy Crush or laser pointer with your cat. I would imagine.

This Podcast That Will Make You Feel Better About Your Lack of Savings. 
Bad With Money with Gaby Dunn is back! I talked about it in this entry and even though I prefer the first season, where she talks to real people about how they manage their money (or don’t), I am still really enjoying her exploration of the financial world and the ways it's stacked against us.


  1. Marcella on Netflix is super awesome. Another "female detective with a shitload of problems" but real good.
