Stuff I Like: Wearing, Watching, Listening, Reading.

Hi hi hi! I've decided to stop hating everything long enough to like a few things to tell y'all about. Isn't that a relief? Just kidding, I like stuff basically too much. Here's what I'm digging this week:

This Lip Balm That Is The Literal Best.
I think I mentioned recently that I got a deluxe sample size of this Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel balm and I’m SO INTO IT. I love it so much I bought a full size version and gave it to Marianne for her birthday. Here’s what she has to say about it: “I keep this on my nightstand because it is the BEST before-bed lip balm ever. It’s never, ever sticky and I wake up with my lips still feeling super soft and moisturized. I LOVE it.” So, there you go. It’s fancy lip balm that smells like caramel and it’s under $20. Treat yo’ self.

This Video Which Proves Tiffany Haddish Is a National Treasure.
I’m not even going to explain too much about this amazing story except that it involves Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, a Groupon, a swamp tour and a whole lot of weed. Enjoy:

This Arctic Monkeys Album That Has Me Charmed. 
If you’re an Arctic Monkeys fan you might have strong feelings about the new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. It’s a concept album involving a lounge act... on a moon colony. It’s a lot to take in but it’s SO WEIRD AND GOOD. It keeps getting compared to Bowie which I don’t hear at all but I do really like it. It’s strange, kind of jazz-y and a total departure. It’s also fucking funny. Humor is one of the things I’ve always loved best about Arctic Monkeys and this album just kills it. “What do you mean you’ve never seen Blade Runner?”

This Nick Hornby Book That Was An Emergency Read.
I forgot my Kindle last week and didn’t want to eat my lunch without something to read (gasp!) so I hustled over to the library and checked out the first thing that looked vaguely promising. It was Nick Hornby’s Funny Girl and I was immediately ALL IN. I’ve read and enjoyed a few of his books but this one really speaks to my interests: Television, comedy, witty banter, the 60s, a charming female main character?  It’s got everything. I'm not even halfway through it yet so if it goes south I’ll let you know.

That's it for this week! By the time you're reading this I'm going to be on my way to NYC for a vacation with my boyfriend. We're going to see David Bowie Is and also a Yankees game! (Something for everyone, right?)


  1. I meant to send these Bowie loafers your way yesterday:,default,pd.html?suggestedNumber=2

    1. Ha, I posted about these a few weeks ago! They aren't quite my style but I love that they exist.

  2. Let's go Yankees! I'll be at Tuesdays game!
