Last week when I was bedridden with shingles, I killed time reading, making up ways to crawl out of my skin, and watching “Forever.” “Forever,” if you haven’t heard of it, is a new tv show about a long-term couple (Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen) who are in a rut of a routine, doing the same things day in and day out, when they suddenly find themselves in a completely different world that can either turn their routine on its head or continue it… forever. It’s superbly done — a creative story with wonderful and nuanced performances and an insightful message. It’s pretty to look at, too. I really loved it.
How cool are these earrings? They’re budget-friendly and perfect colors for autumn, too!
Woah, 16 Korean sheet masks for under $10? Yes, please!
Besides politics, is there anything more divisive that candy corn? Well, maybe this candy corn crossbody bag? (I fall in the “love it” camp.)
Totally different kind of bag (like different ends of the spectrum), but I love the look and practicality of this one. I use a lot of totes in my life as a mom, filling them with pull-ups and water and wipes and snacks (and a laptop on days when they’re both in school and I have time to work in a coffee shop for a bit), and this canvas one looks roomy while still being stylish.
How cool are these Gerrymander necklaces?! Sick of politicians making up their own districts to suit their agenda? Custom create your own districts (well, district jewelry, anyway)! All proceeds benefit OMG WTF, a tax-exempt political organization.
A couple months ago a reader emailed me to recommend the book, The Passion Trap: How to Right an Unbalanced Relationship by Dean C Delis, Ph D. I still have not had a chance to read it, but maybe it’s exactly what you’re looking for so I wanted to mention it, along with the reader’s review: “I have never recommended any self-help books…ever, but I think it will help many of your readers and posters. It explores the imbalance in relationships (the one up and the one down) and how to restore balance or say goodbye to the relationship. It applies to most posters.”
