Ok Gang….I’m ready to focus on some fun. Perhaps it’s because my mom is coming to visit in a week or so (yay, Mom!), perhaps it’s because we leave TOMORROW for Utah (3 days skiing, 3 days hiking in Arches), or perhaps it’s just because Raines’ science fair project is done, Pax’s planet is made and the post-project high is contagious.
And let’s not forget that our new contributor rocks. Are you guys as excited about Tiarra as I am? I’ve been online stalking that poor girl since our first style challenge. (And guess what? She can write, too. YAS.)
Ok. Onto the usual nonsense.
BTW. The PJs I’m wearing in the pic above are from Sundry (link to the top, and bottom). I had put them up on my IG (@shanachristine) and a bunch of you wanted links. Size up in the bottoms, though. (I’m wearing a 1/small in the bottoms, a 0/xs in the top.)
THE BEST purple lipstick for Spring. I’ve been drooling over the lipstick that my friend Ara has been wearing…it’s the most beautiful shade of not-scary purple I’ve ever seen. She are her daughter are both addicted – it’s multi-generational. Anyway, Ara just waltzed into dance class this morning with a tube just for me, and it perked up even my tired, no-makeup face. Ara is from Columbia, and it looks just as good on her tan skin as it does on my pale one. Good job, Revlon.
Slides I’ll actually wear. I just ordered these UGG sandals in black…..and they’re everything I hoped they would be (and made up for these disappointing Lucky booties that rubbed my ankles uncomfortably).
Baby’s got a new pair of jeans. Bloomingdales is offering 25% off all denim (if you buy two pairs). Our full selection of recommended jeans are in this week’s Weekly Sales Report (and don’t forget to consult our handy jean chart)….but here are my favs:
Hey Philly – a sample sale you don’t want to miss! Voloshin, one of my favorite local designers (featured here), have teamed up with a bunch of other local designers and they’re doing a sample sale this weekend. Prices will be 40-90% off retail! More deets here.
A 21st Century understanding of race….tells us that the whole thing is a human invention with “no genetic or scientific basis,” according to this National Geographic article on fraternal twins. Not only do the twin girls featured totally underscore this point…but they’re kiiiiind of adorable.
March For Our Lives is tomorrow. Are you guys participating? This march is to demand that lawmakers prioritize the safety of our children, and end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools. If we weren’t going to be getting on a plane tomorrow, we’d march in Philadelphia. Speaking of sister marches….the March For Our Lives website can help you find the closest sister march…and there are currently 840 of them worldwide. Just looking at that map gives me hope.
The winner of our monthly $200 gift card giveaway is…… Gillian H – congrats chick!! Look for an email from us. Want to be entered to win next month? It’s easy – just sign up for our daily newsletter. The newsletter is nothing scary – we’ll let you about new posts that day, as well as some newsletter-only editor picks and sales alerts. We’re really focusing on the newsletter because we can’t control what new post alerts Facebook chooses to show our followers (even if you’ve liked our page).
Have a good weekend, gang. Wish me luck packing….(UGH).
