In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: A look into how cults make money

…. and this is how cults make money. I am fascinated.

My friend is obsessed with these Sam Edelman Penny Boots — she calls them the Fryes on a budget.

This Reddit post on how this bride wanted people to pay for her to be a “normal” Kardashian for her Wedding Day is….. unreal. It was not at all unreasonable to ask EACH GUEST to pony up $1500 to make this happen. NOT. AT. ALL. UNREASONABLE. /sarcasm

I am (as of late), obsessed with turtlenecks of all kinds — cable knitted, with balloon sleeves, cropped, and super thin, so it comes as no surprise that I am yet again, looking at this cute under $40 John & Jenn turtleneck as being a good all-rounder.

I loved reading these 11 Surprising Things about Parenting in South Africa…. Trevor Noah, one of my favourite all-time celebrities, is from there and it is nice to gain a little (honest) insight into what it is like living there as a bi-racial couple. (Trevor is also half!)

I bought this $20 Wireless Charging Pad and it has changed my life. I no longer fiddle with cables and it is WONDERFUL.

How society keeps telling women to basically… shut up... and to not speak in a manner that is normal for them.

I HIGHLY recommend this neck pillow from Maiza Designs on Etsy. I bought one for Little Bun and another for myself.

All about the pressure that we get as women to always ‘look good’… I kind of do it for myself, but I also don’t fuss with my looks for photos if I don’t have time. I just let it go and it is as it is.

Little Bun pleaded (hassled, more like) for this My First Coding Book because he liked the pictures.

    The looking good post was interesting. I don’t habitually wear make up (though did for my last contract, but I mean BB cream not foundation, light make up). I have certain clothes I don’t want to wear in public, but just yesterday wore to my parents cause their home is like my home. I was invited to a friends on the way home
    And my excuse was my clothing. It was also late though.

    I also wash my hair every day cause the greasy look I just can’t handle! On the other side, I’d feel indulgent and vain and horrid if i spent an hour getting made up with a friend or partner waiting. Not that I know how to take that long!

      I would also feel indulgent keeping a friend or partner waiting for an hour while I got ready.

      I get ready in 15 minutes or less. I have to be quick, having learned that from handling Little Bun. The only non-negotiable is I need to have sunscreen slathered on my face and backs of my hands before I leave the house. Everything else is — whatever. Just a top and jeans is fine if I am in a rush.

      Then I throw on some lipstick to feel somewhat presentable, and voila. 🙂
