What I Read Recently.  I finished The Hopefuls over the holidays.  It’s one of the few fiction books that doesn’t make D.C. look like Scandal.  A good, lighter read.

The Article My Friends and I Debated on GChat. Should fashion magazines talk politics?  I think women’s mags have a role in educating the public when it comes to politics, but I’m a bit troubled by the lack of diversity.  This NYT article shows the wide variety of opinions from women on the right.

What Perplexes Me. Why is Overstock.com selling Celine handbags?

    Ah, Belle, you made me think that Overstock was selling Celine handbags for cheap, and I got SO EXCITED. What a letdown 😉

      1) Yes, I agree. I got excited too, and then saw the retail price. But 2) Why are they selling them? Are they real? Are they fake?

    The Bloomberg article was really interesting, thanks for sharing!
    In a way…. it made me feel better about our finances. (me+husband, no kids). I’m often really critical of myself since I’m the only non-doctor/lawyer/Ph.D/engineer/MBA out of my circle of friends. I always felt so “behind” in life, but actually, I might be just fine. I know comparison isn’t a good thing, but it actually helped me feel a bit more relaxed.
    I’m always curious about how other families live – money is such a taboo topic.

    I’m sure they are real, but why is Banana selling Louis Vuitton? Just seems random to me.

    Thank you for highlighting an article that features varying viewpoints, specifically, that of conservative women. FINALLY a blog that is speaking to all women, not just those they share political views with.
