What Made Me Laugh. Macrame wall hangings are back. Welcome to the 1970s.

What I’m Passing On. Dirty Lemon waters. The packaging, the business model, the brand is cool.  But the Detox is just lemon juice with charcoal in it, and the Skin/Hair is just master cleans sans molasses.  At $65 for 6 waters, it’s a hard pass.

    Link 1 and 2 seem to be in direct opposition of each other.

    that trench coat is gorge but I wish retailers would stop with the exposed zippers!!! It makes dresses less formal/flexible and doesn’t really add much to the design IMO

    I thought you’d already ordered the Dirty Lemon water? Did you try it and it not work out or cancel?

      Exactly. Tried two kinds, there was nothing special about it.

    That trench coat is amazing. Everything I want. My search continues for one like it that is ethically made. Nicole Birger comes close but it’s missing that perfect grey color.

    I am always looking for “cut these unnecessary spending habit links” but HATE when they act like making coffee at home or bringing lunch to work is somehow free! Cheaper, yes, but there are costs associated with both. You don’t just pocket the extra savings!

      Agreed. One of those nespresso pods is 1.10 a piece. And I always tend to overfill homemade lunches.
